Quest Waste Management has achieved significant business growth following the implementation of cloud-based job management technology from BigChange.
In the past 18 months, the Yorkshire-based provider of domestic and commercial drainage services has opened a new depot serving the Midlands and south, invested over £1.8m in its fleet of specialist vehicles and more than doubled its workforce. The BigChange platform has been an integral part of this success, reducing Quest’s reliance on paper job sheets and manual scheduling, improving communication and providing additional business intelligence.
“BigChange has helped us to transform our business,” commented Ivan Smyth, Managing Director at Quest Waste Management. “By providing tools to efficiently manage every aspect of the mobile operation, we have achieved a strong foundation for continuous growth.”
“In fact, we see the impact of BigChange on the business every day,” he continued.
“From the initial enquiry through to job allocation, completion and invoicing, BigChange helps us manage our resources and share critical information both within the company and with contractors and clients.”Ivan Smyth, MD Quest Waste Management
