Leading Snow Removal Company Avails FWS' Mapping and Measurement Services
The client is based in the United States (Illinois) and has been operating since 2002. In addition to removing snow during daytime hours, the client offers snow removal services during extreme weather conditions such as black ice, blizzards, and freezing rain.
The client needed to anticipate snow removal requirements at multiple locations and wanted 80 sites to be mapped and measured using specified mapping tools. The client wanted to outsource the project to reduce costs and save time for their employees. Due to the complexity of the full project, Flatworld Solutions suggested an initial trial project.
The project involved four primary challenges -
Short delivery time
Frequent changes in mapping and measuring parameters by the client
Project was complex and key data was missing for each site
Each site had its own set of parameters
After carefully analyzing the client's requirements and the project challenges, the Flatworld Solutions data management specialists developed this solution -
The team included five specialists during the trial period - when the full project was awarded, the team involved two full-time specialists and two backup resources
During the trial period, the client provided multiple presentations, handbooks, and training sessions that covered Go iLawn and additional mapping tools. The team conducted site research and developed a multiple-step process for the trial that was continued in the subsequent full project. The trial was successful and the client awarded the entire project to the Flatworld Solutions team
To meet the client's need for weekend support, the team worked on a 24/7 schedule
Results were provided on a weekly basis according to the client's scheduling request
The project was completed on time for the client
This project demonstrates the importance of an outsourcing partner's ability to adjust to changing client requirements - especially during complex assignments such as this one. After this project was completed, the client expressed appreciation for the flexibility of the Flatworld Solutions (FWS) team in adjusting site parameters throughout the project. The ongoing changes were facilitated by an effective communication process established before the trial assignment.
