How RC Power uses Agora to scale company operations
Inefficient operations made it difficult to grow
When RC Power - a successful $10 million per year electrical contractor - started growing quickly, the team realized they had a problem scaling their operation. Not having the right materials process in place was making growth difficult.
The absence of a repeatable ordering process was a headache for PMs and accounting, but, the biggest complaint was from the field: they were not receiving materials that they had ordered reliably. Foremen lost hours on the job as a result.
Without checks and balances, accounting didn’t know if the supply house were charging the right amount for orders and had to confirm each invoice with a project manager. PMs were wasting time reviewing hundreds of invoices a month and it could take up to six months to pay bills.
Improving operational efficiency with Agora
Armed with a roadmap designed in collaboration with the Agora team, RC Power began implementing Agora company-wide to ensure that every material order went through the platform.

"I champion Agora because it makes your company more scalable. If you don’t have a system already that tracks material ordering and streamlines the flow of requests from the field to the vendor, then you need one if you want to scale. You can’t do it with spreadsheets or emails anymore."
"Agora was so quick to place an order and so easy and streamlined, we didn’t need anybody other than the project manager or the assistant project manager to move the product from the vendor to the site."
