Coordinating a full-service landscaping company with multiple deskless teams has always been challenging, and as Ambler Industries' office manager, Liz Foreback handled every detail. She often found herself buried in paperwork or using her personal phone on off hours to keep the business running smoothly, and was considering extending her office hours just to be available to answer questions. Reconciling payroll, tracking referrals, coordinating callouts, and scheduling jobs happened, but often manually and inefficiently.
Liz needed to find a way to spend more of her time on work that would grow the company. She needed a simple way to keep field teams informed of company announcements like weather delays and open enrollment and also an easier way to let them communicate with her even when their hours didn't line up.
With Team Engine, Ambler Industries has completely optimized and streamlined their entire employee messaging process. From hiring to onboarding and daily operations, Liz is now able to coordinate every field team directly from her computer. Announcements for weather delays and surveys for uniform orders are a breeze, and employees can text in HR questions or callouts directly from their phones at any time, knowing Liz sees the message the minute she logs in. This streamlined operations so much that Liz was able to move to a weekly payroll system, a benefit much-loved by the workforce.
