Atlanta Grout & Tile, a Tile, Stone & Grout restoration company based in Woodstock, Georgia, was facing challenges with its traditional business model. Despite steady growth over the years, the company was falling behind the web revolution and missing out on the opportunity to tap into a new consumer base. They were using independent software from different vendors for each of their department information and workforce management. This resulted in a lot of manual work on excel and the need to export/import data between different systems. This not only increased overhead costs but also slowed down their response to clients. The company also had to prepare numerous reports manually and lacked access to customer trends for effective business decision-making.

About The Customer
Atlanta Grout & Tile is a Tile, Stone & Grout restoration company located in Woodstock, Georgia. With over 13 years of experience in the industry, the company has built a reputation for quality work delivered by certified professionals. They have also been instrumental in creating groundbreaking products – pFOkUS® – one of the best in the tile cleaning and maintenance area. Despite their success, the company was looking for ways to leverage technology to reinvent their business model and grow at a faster pace.
To overcome these challenges, Atlanta Grout & Tile decided to integrate all business processes into one system. They consulted with experts to understand their business processes and design a new comprehensive integrated system from the ground up. The new system was designed to improve workforce efficiency and bring the company closer to its customers. The first step in this process was to upgrade the existing CRM’s old design to a new responsive & intuitive web application with different front-facing modules for Work schedule manager, Sales & Customers. Google Maps was also integrated into the app for geocoding addresses for intelligent scheduling. The next step was to streamline customer payments and documenting information for Accounting. A payment gateway was integrated into the CRM for accepting customer payments, which flowed into the Accounting module for tax purposes. The company also redesigned its CRM to a multi-tenant architecture, enabling franchising and sharing of best practices between franchises. Finally, the entire IT infrastructure of Atlanta Grout & Tile was migrated to Amazon Web Services.

Revolutionizing Construction Equipment Rental: A Case Study on ProsRent and ENO8
ProsRent, a startup that won the 'Best Financial Opportunity' and 'Best Pitch' at CodeLaunch 2016, aimed to revolutionize the way construction professionals source and rent heavy equipment. In the construction industry, project managers and contractors typically rent heavy equipment from supply companies. However, predicting inventory can be challenging, and finding the required equipment at the right time and place can be a hassle. If the preferred vendor doesn't have the required equipment, it results in wasted time and money in searching for it, often leading to higher costs due to non-preferred rates and increased delivery costs if the vendor is located far from the job site. Suppliers, on the other hand, desired access to a wider base of trusted renters that they didn't have to vet themselves and wanted to offer dynamic rental pricing based on demand and availability in their market. ProsRent's challenge was to produce a minimum viable product that was fast and first to market but also strong enough to engender loyalty and repeat business from the target market.
IoT Solution Enhances Comfort and Energy Efficiency at Apple Valley Commons Office
Apple Valley Commons, a mixed-use office complex built in 1986, was facing significant comfort and energy efficiency challenges. The building, which houses a variety of businesses, was experiencing extreme temperature imbalances, causing discomfort to employees and clients. Despite outdoor temperatures being consistently high during summers, occupants had to use space heaters to keep warm. The electricity bills from the constant operation of the heat pump were exorbitant. The building's elevator room on the roof was also overheating, reaching temperatures of 130 to 140 degrees, causing the elevator equipment to shut down. The building's existing controls solution did not provide a front end for diagnostics or remote control. The building management was seeking a solution that could address these temperature issues, improve occupant comfort, reduce operational costs, and increase building visibility.
