How They're Doing Now:
The company specializes in residential and commercial construction as well as light refurbishment. This London-based company has been shortlisted for The International Design & Architecture Awards of 2021, and has won many awards prior.
From luxurious interiors like their project Berkley Court apartment renovations to commercial spaces like office fit-outs on Berkley Street, this company takes the cake in skillful refurbishment and renovation.
When Fohlio first met the company representatives, they were struggling with documenting their specifications. Spreadsheets for procurement were very complex: They contained tracking schedules of beginning-to-end delivery dates, target delivery tracking dates, and actual delivery dates. All these were in a large spreadsheet that, frankly, made the data almost unusable.
The company had a large design and procurement team, and for the most part, individual members each had their own way of doing things. This meant that design documents differed depending on the project and which team was working on it. There was no singular template for company documents, and the only person who was capable of perfectly translating these design documents was the person assigned to make the document -- making turnovers even more tedious than they already were.
Not long after Fohlio onboarding, the teams finally had a living, breathing product catalog library, which managed all of their product specifications. Flexible and customizable tables in Fohlio now track important details about their procurement statuses. These custom columns also contain information on what stage of the design and production process a project is in.
Having centralized all of their project data specifications in Fohlio, the company finally had time to focus on the next big thing: team coordination. Fohlio was able to work on creating standard design and report templates that all members of their team could use for both internal and external reporting. It also became very easy to collaborate with external or third parties participating in their projects because Fohlio gave the firm the ability to view parts of the project they were previously unable to see.
