The history

Cassidy Construction is a vertical construction company that has been at the forefront of the New Zealand construction industry for many years. They take on an impressive array of commercial projects from substations to high rises.

The opportunity

With nearly 1000 tools across the business spread across more than 20 sites, Cassidy was looking for an effective solution to manage their small plant and equipment while helping align the office team with what their staff had on site. They required software that could easily show who has what, the status of each item and provide a maintenance record of their equipment for ISO compliance. Having used other tools in the past, Cassidy struggled with the reliance on field staff to input data. Some users were good at adopting new processes, however if someone did not use the tool, it caused issues in data integrity and created more work for the office team.

The results

Mutu and Cassidy have been closely working together for the last six months to ensure a fit for purpose solution that gives tools to both the office and site teams to manage their equipment. Cassidy Plant Manager, Zane found Mutu a big improvement in terms of productivity and time saving “It was far easier using the Mutu app to track and manage equipment requests rather than pens and paper or spreadsheets. Having everything in one place saves a lot of time”.

Cassidy now have a companywide view of the status of all their equipment, helping streamline day-to-day work and ensuring accuracy and efficiency in other important areas such as health and safety or audits.

On top of using Mutu to understand the status and location of gear, Cassidy successfully used Mutu for an equipment stocktake to comply with a recent ISO audit. “In the past, getting an overview of what we owned was difficult, but Mutu provides this instantly to us from anywhere” said Zane.

Office staff have enjoyed the ability to book and reassign equipment on behalf of site staff, as well as initiating company wide equipment audits at the click of a button. A feature on Mutu that requires staff with equipment on the Mutu app to confirm if they have it and the status of it. This eliminates the need for GPS / bluetooth tracking hardware and achieves the same result.

Both the site and office teams like the simplicity of the product and Mutu’s willingness to iterate based on customer feedback. Learning and Development Lead Jen Grainger has loved the collaborative approach Mutu has taken when working with her and the rest of the Cassidy team “Mutus has been delivering value for the site, health and safety and administration teams and continues to evolve with the requirements of our company” said Jen. “The simplicity of the app has gone a long way to helping us integrate it into our processes here at Cassidy”.
