CONCO saves $800,000 annually with Nintex Platform

Increasing credibility with existing clients and attracting new ones, all thanks to Nintex Advanced Workflow

Designing and installing high-voltage power lines and substations in rural areas means workers face a real danger of electrocution on the job. In this line of work, keeping employees up-to-date on their certifications could be a matter of life or death.

In addition to the physical dangers, working in remote areas of Africa is challenging for CONCO, a subsidiary of Consolidated Infrastructure Group Limited (CIGL). In many areas, employees install the very thing they need to do business—electricity.

When Chief Information Officer Bryan Kimmel first joined CONCO, connectivity and the dangers of electrocution weren’t his only concerns. At the time, the company used file servers and folders to track more than 300 proposals a year. In addition, securing new projects meant providing proof of the required certifications for any employees slated to work on those projects.

Kimmel knew that Conco needed digital transformation to keep employees safe and compete effectively. He turned to Nintex for help.

Who they are

Founded in 1986, CONCO is a subsidiary of Consolidated Infrastructure Group Limited (CIGL). CONCO creates turnkey high-voltage solutions for the electricity supply industry.

What they needed

CONCO needed to ensure data security and accuracy and eliminate manual processes when serving areas with unreliable electrical and Internet infrastructure. They also needed reliable speed for employees in well-served areas and a workflow automation platform that would help them grow their business into the future.

How they did it

From employee onboarding and certification tracking to more efficient proposal generation and line of business operations, the Nintex Platform provides the auditability and accountability demanded by the power industry while paving the way for CONCO’s continued growth.

CONCO surges ahead of its competitors

While Kimmel considered other workflow options, three things made him choose the Nintex Platform: ease of use, visual interface, and its business value. Plus, with employees working in areas with limited connectivity, Kimmel appreciated the Nintex Modern App for mobile devices.

The Nintex Platform saves CONCO more than 5,000 hours of labor each year and helps prevent security mistakes. This leap in speed and accuracy gives CONCO a competitive edge, increasing credibility with existing clients and attracting new ones.

“We’ve become more active in enhancing processes, speed-to-delivery of our processes, and speed-to-delivery against our audit processes,” Kimmel says. “It’s becoming the differentiator with our clients. They know that we have information at our fingertips and that we’re able to record and retrieve it so much quicker than most of our competitors.”

Speed to value and competitive advantage are just a few of the reasons that Conco chose the Nintex Platform for its digital transformation efforts.

Without Nintex, we’d find it incredibly difficult to continue doing business the way we do at the moment. Nintex helps satisfy our clients and support our employees with the processes needed to be a leader in our industry.
