Efficiencies are very important...

Streamlining and simplifying processes is an essential part of business.  Finding technology that can not only assist but also ensure all parts of the process are compliant and benchmarked against what the company requires makes this easier. 

For the field consultants having it out there with them and being able to provide quotations and check margins instantly, is very useful for them.  

“Speed to market is definitely a big factor. Having that software be able to create employment contracts and quotations quickly would have definitely allowed us to win business ”

Kris McCue

‘In the past we had one role just looking after the process of manually updating, changing and checking awards and increases, that is all now done by ratescalc.com ’.

The three best things about ratescalc.com:

Compliance – for our business and to protect our business we must be totally compliant and we know we have that covered by using this application. 

Pay Rates & Scales – this is one area we can not afford any mistakes or human error. Having the technology keep us updated each time there is a change is giving us peace of mind.

Increased Efficiency – The time and money savings from having software handle so many of the manual processes has really allowed management and the whole business to be more efficient and timely.

“With templates and documents set up in the system it creates speed for the consultants, streamlines processes and delivers access to information quickly.”

Productivity Gains

Kris says “Consultants are the people using the system most in the field, it makes their life easier and management easier. The application is easy to use and simple.”

Speed to Market

Speed to market is just one of the ways DGT is more competitive and has used the software to their advantage. 

Correct Margins

Ratescalc allows you to set margins to suit your business and processes we ensure we don’t have errors in margins by using it to set the scale.

To other clients?....

“I would suggest pretty strongly that they would implement it if they haven’t already.

We shifted a whole role by using ratescalc.com.  In the past, we had almost one person in charge of this function and had all the knowledge of awards etc and basically just maintaining these complicated spreadsheets and then once we started with ratescalc that then the need transferred. 

We definitely gained some major efficiencies with the application.”

“We look forward to seeing what further improvements on processes we can gain from the application.”
