Chester Consultants break down silos to create a streamlined system



Auckland-based consulting engineers, Chester Consultants, boast a diverse client base with a large number of jobs on the go at once. “At any one time we’ve probably got a couple of hundred jobs open that are at various stages. Some may be at consenting stage, some may be in council, some may be under construction”, explains company director and senior engineer, Steven Rankin.

Not surprisingly, Steven and his team needed an efficient project management solution that would help them easily stay on top of the many administration tasks associated with managing multiple projects. “Our financial advisor suggested WorkflowMax. We sat down with him for a couple of hours, we played around with it, then we said ‘Yes, that’s better, let’s do it’.”

And the rest, as they say, is history...
