Construction management firm removes complexity, adds mobility with Nintex

Working on Nintex Forms whenever and wherever with mobile capabilities

Most of Washington-based construction company KBA Incorporated’s projects are classified as “heavy civil,” such as road, bridge and transit projects. The company’s role is to resolve design conflicts, address changed conditions and expedite work performed by others. KBA had struggled to find a workflow and forms solution that are easy to use, yet robust enough to deliver anytime-anywhere access for mobile users.

“Both our staff and our clients are out in the field all the time, so having support for mobile was absolutely critical,” says Operations Manager, Misty Fisher.

For content management, KBA was using SharePoint mostly as a “file cabinet” for its PDF documentation. As storage it worked well, but users found that they were unable to capture the level of detailed project information they needed.

Business Situation

Lacking a strong solution for workflow and forms was putting KBA’s project success at risk, and without support for mobile devices, most users were unable to review and approve documentation from the field.

Solution

Nintex workflow solutions make it easy for stakeholders to stay on-task, and review and approve documentation anytime, from any device.

Nintex simplifies SharePoint workflows

KBA needed an easy way to increase user adoption of its SharePoint infrastructure, improve workflows and enable its mobile users to access information on a variety of devices and locations. 

Nintex removed the complexity and unwieldiness of SharePoint workflows, and made it easy for KBA users to get the information they need quickly. Now data can be easily re-purposed across the system with dynamic PDF documentation. KBA can also easily create forms that work automatically on any mobile device.

“When people are in the field, they need to be able to access and use information, no matter what device they are using,” Fisher says. “With Nintex, we have that agility for the first time.”
