In the dynamic world of construction, efficiency reigns supreme. National Maintenance & Construction Inc. (NM&C Inc.) understands this principle well. As a nationwide leader in facility maintenance and general construction, NM&C Inc. boasts over 50 years of combined senior management experience, specializing in the repair and remodeling of retail, restaurant, commercial, and industrial properties. Their “hybrid” approach, combining self-performing technicians with a network of key alliances, allows them to tackle any maintenance or construction need, no matter the location.

However, even with a robust network, identifying qualified vendors for specific projects can become a time-consuming task. NM&C Inc. needed a solution that would streamline its vendor selection process and enable them to connect with the right partners faster.

Finding the Perfect Fit, Quickly

NM&C Inc. faced a specific challenge in their project management workflow:

  1. Vendor Location Visibility: They needed a way to visualize the geographical location of vendors with specific skill sets in relation to their project locations. This would ensure they were selecting vendors who could efficiently service their projects.
  2. Mass Communication for RFPs: The company required a tool that would allow them to quickly and efficiently send out Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to a large number of vendors. Manually sending individual emails was not an option for their high-volume operation.
  3. Platform Independence: NM&C Inc. sought a solution that would integrate seamlessly with their existing workflow, eliminating the need to rely on multiple platforms for different tasks.
Maplytics: A Location-Powered Solution

This eliminated countless hours spent on phone calls and individual emails, streamlining their communication process.
  3. Seamless CRM Integration: Maplytics integrated seamlessly with NM&C Inc.’s existing Dynamics 365 CRM platform. This ensured all vendor data and project information resided in a central location, readily accessible to project managers... Read More
