Southeastern Technical Helps Engineering Firm Invoice Accurately & Efficiently

the company

Southern Cathodic Protection is an innovator in the corrosion industry protecting concrete and metallic structures. A well-known and respected engineering firm, they have designed, constructed and maintained cathodic protection systems for more than 40 years.

The Problem

Gathering time and materials information from field engineers and compiling the information into invoices took 75% of a full-time admin employee’s time.

Key Challenges

They needed a centralized system that would allow employees to report time and expenses themselves, and that would generate invoices from the data at the end of the month.

Solutions Considered

QuickBooks was considered, but at the time, it did not offer staff-level accounts that could be used to enter time and materials without having access to private financial data. As such, it still would have required a separate admin to enter in the data.

Final Solution

We provided a custom database solution that worked on computers and phones that allowed a person to remotely enter time and materials. Then, invoices could be easily generated from the entries in the central database according to the project and company.

Response to Solution

Due to our longstanding relationship with Southern Cathodic Protection and the significant need for a better way to invoice, they were enthusiastic about the proposed solution.
