Increasing Revenue Opportunities Through User Experience Design and Process Automation

Business Case Overview

National Telecom is the second largest cable provider with over 26 million customers in the United states. After a series of acquisitions, they were faced with the challenges of scaling, process standardization and transparency within their construction operations across their organization. More specifically, their "Construction Management" process.

The organization was in need of transformational changes to their overall "Construction Management" process in order to to achieve their goals of obtaining standard process, scalability and transparency, starting with the 11 Construction Permitting II subprocess.

Construction  Management  Process

As one part of the broader "Construction Management" process, most infrastructure construction jobs require a variety of build permits from the corresponding city government that resides within the area that the construction is taking place.

Permitting Sub-process Challenges

  • Each permit type had its own unique set of requirements and processes.
  • The permitting subprocess is handled differently per region.
  • Decentralised sets of tools were used to facilitate permit acquisitions and store permitting information.

Negative Impacts

The construction coordinators have been obtaining permits for the jobs,
but had been plagued by both inefficiency and progress transparency.

This contributed to:

  • A lack of standard process
  • Lengthy training times for new staff
  • Permit progress tracking and communication inefficiencies
  • Data management risks that included quality control issues and a lack of measurable data
  • An excessive amount of manual touchpoints needed to find and manage permitting information
  • Project planning challenges due to very low predictability and low confidence in permit acquisition time estimates.

All of which had significant impact on the project timelines and the business bottom line.
