Center Drill was established in 1991 by the current President Tommy Moses. From 1991 to 2007, Moses ran the entire company and did EVERYTHING by hand in the office. This included doing repairs, building and renting out oilfield drilling tools, and running the business. Eventually, Tommy hired Francie Vance, Marc, and Star to help with the office activities. At that time, the accounting and inventory tasks were all done manually using spreadsheets. Francie and Star decided that Center Drill needed an efficient and effective solution.
Center Drill Waves a White Flag!
- Multiple years of Excel data were lost (multiple times) due to system crashes, leading to costly and time-consuming data entry.
- Unable to see history of inspection and repair work.
- Unable to import inspections and repair reports into excel.
- Locating inspections was done manually in order to make copies.
- No visibility into how many times a tool was rented.
VARC Solutions to the Rescue!
- We created a Quickbase inventory management system.
- Inspection reports and repair work reports are now automatically created and stored.
- Eliminated the manual, time consuming process of finding papers (saving hours).
- Better business understanding and decision making due to detailed reporting capabilities.
“To this very day, [Hiring VARC Solutions] is still one of the best business decisions this company has ever made. I will never forget the first few visits with Robin and her assurance to me that with the “homework” she gave us done correctly, we would be able to complete tasks in minutes that normally took us hours. Did I believe her? No! Did it happen as she said it would? You bet it did!”
