Customer Case Study: McCoy’s Building Supply Smart Asset Management
Let us show you how this could work for you to achieve the same success!
ABOUT THE CUSTOMER
McCoy’s Building Supply is a rapidly growing retail building supplier with full-service lumberyards in 5 states, including Arkansas, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. McCoy’s caters to serious do-it-yourselfers, farmers and ranchers, repair and remodel contractors, and independent homebuilders.
McCoy’s Building Supply was seeking a facilities management solution that would serve their facilities and asset management requirements. In addition to the retail stores, McCoy’s operates and relies upon a fleet of on-road trucks to deliver materials to their customers. The facilities team manages their retail locations inclusive the facilities, parking lots, a range of interior assets from forklifts to shelving and more.
The team at McCoy’s needed a solution that was flexible enough to give them integration of work order and asset management across a broad range of diverse asset types in order to better manage their overall asset portfolio. They wanted a facilities management solution that would allow them to manage everything from their revenue essential custom fleet of delivery vehicles which require stringent DOT compliance tracking to HVAC systems, forklifts, shelving, and even parking lot striping integrity.
Not all assets are created equally, and for the solution to work for McCoy’s, they needed to treat assets differently by class. That meant that each asset class would require unique services providers, custom fields, work order workflow, prioritization options, and reporting. Rigid systems that offered “best practices” workflow without flexible custom configurability for adapting would not give them the efficiency and cost leverage they were seeking.
- Customized fields & workflow for unique asset classes enabled efficient operations & continue to yield significant savings on facility & asset maintenance.
- Data related to asset life, condition, and repair history are used to proactively negotiate future capital purchases at significant savings.
- Fexa’s project module adds new efficiency to manage more complex construction activities.
