Van Dyken Creates a Central Information Repository by Switching to Viewpoint

Using Vista

Established in 1949, Van Dyken Mechanical, Inc. has grown to become one of the largest, most progressive, and highly respected full-service mechanical contracting firms in Western Michigan. Innovative HVAC designs along with expertise in the integration and automation of various building systems make Van Dyken a leader in the design and installation of HVAC systems for commercial, educational, institutional, and industrial applications.

“The ability to keep all the information in one location and then having the ability to filter out records in the grid, speeds up the entire data entry and job evaluation process.”

Nancy Jones, Controller

The Challenge

Van Dyken’s software system was focused primarily on service operations and lacked the depth of functionality the company required to grow the project management side of its business. After an extensive evaluation process involving team members from throughout the organization, Van Dyken’s clear choice was Vista by Viewpoint, based on the deep functionality it offered in one, complete solution.

We Can Help

Van Dyken has seeing significant improvements in Human Resources, Payroll, and Billings processes. The company has also improved project management with increased tracking and efficiencies in managing purchasing, subcontracts, change orders, and AIA billings, resulting in many hours being saved. Vista’s integration with Outlook to send and manage documents is a tremendous time-saver, plus the workflow and approval process is being streamlined. Van Dyken is now operating at a much more efficient pace and is looking forward to growing with Viewpoint.
