CASE: Save 500 man-hours per year with ARC
As a technical staffing agency specializing in engineering and construction, Alertec has been using ARC for years. By having everything digitally stored in one place, Alertec saves a significant amount of man-hours and costs. However, there is something special about this collaboration: ARC was developed in partnership with Alertec to create a perfect system.
How it started
“We were developing a system to keep all welding certificates valid because the paperwork involved was far from efficient. It had to be faster and easier. We also saw that this system would be a great advantage for technical staffing agencies. That’s when the collaboration with Alertec began. We aimed to create an excellent system that would greatly facilitate the maintenance of welding certificates. And how do you achieve an excellent system? Right, by working together with a technical staffing agency,” says Pieter Koop, Manager of Welding Certifications at Weldmij.
No more manually confirming and renewing certificates
“In conversation with Alertec, we asked about their process for keeping certificates valid. Before using ARC, they had an employee manually keeping track of all qualifications. Every certificate required a new signature every six months, and once they had all the certificates, they had to manually apply Alertec’s logo to each one to prevent misuse. This took the employee a lot of time, and what used to take days of work can now be done in 1.5 minutes with ARC. Another significant advantage is that they can also digitally send certificates. Previously, this had to be done manually by scanning each document. With ARC, all certificates are stored digitally in one place, and with the email integration, they can easily be sent to the desired person.” Read here about the benefits of ARC.
“Since the ARC system was developed in collaboration with Alertec, it perfectly meets the needs of technical staffing agencies. Alertec reports saving about 500 man-hours per year since they started using this system. However, at Weldmij, we are not standing still and are working on the continuous development of ARC. In addition to maintaining digital welding certificates, we also want to manage welding procedure qualifications in the future and have ARC generate the complete paperwork for welder qualifications. This includes the pWPS, all test reports, and the final certificate itself. By following all the steps in the correct order and digitally generating the documents, you can work flawlessly!” says Pieter.
