Sycamore, Ill. - IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. announced today that IDEAL ELECTRICAL will serve as the exclusive electrical partner of RIVET Work, the leading provider of workforce management software for specialty contractors. The partnership brings electrical contractors transformative visibility, access to labor and equipment planning tools and real-time utilization of company assets that result in improved profit margins.
Commercial and industrial electrical contractors nationwide are maintaining and scaling incredible infrastructure requiring complex planning, scheduling, communication and collaboration as phases and tasks progress. The RIVET platform provides automated forecasting for project teams that plug into job rosters, schedule gantts and location-aware maps for back-office managers to assign the right people to planned positions. Schedulers and equipment teams can even attach the dispatch of tools and equipment so contractors know where equipment is, and who’s using it, in real time. RIVET can also be used to quickly review worker profiles, field labor requests and create interactive job maps, as well as transfer workers where they are needed on demand.
“IDEAL works to understand all aspects of the job from start to finish so that we can best serve our communities with our products and services,” says Josh Margritz Director of Marketing, Product Management. “In addition to the important on-site work that happens every day, there are crucial office management and operations teams supporting that work. With RIVET as a resource, they have the tools and systems necessary to most efficiently schedule their valuable labor force and equipment.”
“We see schedulers fielding hundreds of emails, calls and texts from job sites on a typical day,” says Alison Accavitti, RIVET Co-Founder & CMO. “With RIVET, contractors can go from forecast to schedule to the field in one seamless, easy-to-use workflow. With IDEAL’s partnership, we’ve worked with many contractors directly to make the software intuitive and easy to use so you can match the right workers to the right jobs better and faster.”
Along with the partnership, RIVET is also a participating sponsor of the 2022 IDEAL National Championship. Qualifying events are happening now through October for professional and student-apprentice electricians in every U.S. state and across Canada. Qualifying event winners will advance to the Finals event taking place Nov. 4-6 in Tampa, Florida. Registration and event information is available at IDEALIND.com.
