The telecommunications industry connects the world through information sharing. Of the companies who design and build these critical communication networks, many are experts within their individual trades. But they provide fragmented services and lag on internal technology infrastructure. This is precisely where Congruex bridges the gap by specializing in integrated project delivery, leveraging best-in-class technologies, and crafting data-based solutions in-house.
“We can deliver all aspects of the project under our single umbrella, and our integrated approach mitigates common issues that arise in other organizations who work with disparate engineering and construction companies,” says Rob Reynolds, Congruex Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
Congruex’s most acclaimed technology achievement to date is its Shared Services Platform, which is an integrated, cloud-based construction and engineering project management system, HRIS, workflow management system, and a back-office ERP system that flows into one proprietary data repository called the ‘data lake.’ The data lake generates powerful KPIs that provide key stakeholders with real-time transparency, enabling agile business decisions. The centralized system triggers early warning signs to course correct and valuable insights to double down on big wins. Within the framework of this platform, Congruex can regulate the security, functionality, and design of its consolidated data.
This innovation has allowed Congruex to effectively scale to meet its clients’ demands as both a regional service provider and a national turn-key solution. Congruex also uses data capture technology such as LiDAR and UAV, in addition to its own proprietary enhanced GIS system, to capture better-detailed shots and widespread aerial satellite images to guide the design process. The multinational company’s data-driven approach effectively prioritizes projects, implements workflow changes, and reallocates resources to accommodate and aid operational and financial goals. Congruex also holds the tools to overcome one of the biggest challenges faced by the industry – increased material costs and lead time. As a result of its Shared Services Platform, Congruex can offset supply chain fluctuations by optimizing operations and streamlining processes.
Congruex business units across the US and India essentially function as clients of its corporate entity. The product corporate delivers is proprietary technology. For instance, one Congruex business unit used insights from the shared services platform to identify a process gap that had led to client remittance delays and pinpointed other opportunities to strengthen their clients’ portfolio. Congruex was able to course-correct by harnessing the operational data to mitigate further financial ramifications. Their swift actions resulted in a nearly 46% year-over-year increase in 2021 Q1 sales volume and an almost 13% faster order to cash timeframe. The timeframe to calculate work-in-progress (WIP) was drastically reduced from days to virtually real-time (within two hours). These successes were achieved without adding headcount or increasing investment in marketing and sales.
“Our digital innovations are critical to our long-term success and the crux of our revolutionary approach to providing turn-key digital network design and build services,” says Rob Reynolds.
Congruex continuously seeks expansion and diversification opportunities to achieve its vision of becoming the largest turn-key provider of digital design and build services in the US. Organic and inorganic growth are continuously on the horizon. The company also heavily invests in developing new ways to leverage its data, such as predictive modeling to direct future work.
It’s apparent Congruex takes pride in living its mission – to satisfy its customers by providing the expertise, technology, and resources necessary to build better networks – and plans to make a lasting mark on the industry.
