How Turtle and Hughes Gained Supply Chain Visibility
At Turtle and Hughes Integrated Supply, a division of Turtle and Hughes, successfully managing the buying and procurement activities of customers’ Maintenance, Repair, & Operations (MRO) supply chains requires visibility into operations, as well as fast and effective communications, and operational transparency.
The company had previously used spreadsheets and emails to manage projects, which had worked for the company at a smaller scale. But, as they continued to grow and started to scale their operations these manual processes were causing more challenges and inefficiencies.
These methods were also creating siloed systems leaving information trapped in emails or spreadsheets, as well as legacy systems like multiple ERPs. These challenges all had a significant impact on their ability to communicate, aggregate, and report on data.
To address these challenges, Turtle and Hughes’ leadership were looking for a tool that was agile, had a quick speed to value, required little to no onboarding, was mobile friendly, and that was compatible with their internal and external ERP systems.
They found that Quickbase met all of their requirements, and as a low-code platform also allowed them to centralize their data and information and provide real-time visibility into important information.
Since implementing Quickbase, Turtle and Hughes has seen improved visibility into their operations which has helped leaders make more informed decisions and provided customers real-time insight into their project status. They have also seen greater efficiency of their supply chain and operations, cutting down on the amount of time spent on manual processes. Additionally, the ability to automate and customize reporting has made it easier for both employees and customers to review performance.
By leveraging a low-code platform, Turtle and Hughes was able to stabilize their supply chain, create more value not only for their employees but for their customers, and increase transparency and efficiency of their operations.
