If you’ve ever spoken to one of our team members – in person, on the phone, or via email – you’ve likely noticed that we’re a lively bunch. Perhaps you’ve wondered, “Is WrightPlan really just that excited to work with software solutions? Do they drink coffee all day long? I thought software offices were just a bunch of people trapped in cubicles all day.” The truth is that not only do we love what we do – engaging with our clients and making the quoting, scheduling and whole processes pain-free – we also work hard to build and maintain a healthy work environment because our internal atmosphere and the health of our team directly relates to you. Stellar customer service is a great source of pride for us. We’re constantly working towards complete corporate success. And right now that’s easier than ever to do!

Cranes are such a beloved symbol of the construction landscape that it’s hard to believe that only 100 years ago they were predominantly used in the shipping industry. If you’re a history buff you may be tempted to believe that the Industrial Revolution of 1750 through 1900 took cranes under its wing, but it wasn’t until the tail end that cranes took a step toward becoming the engineering marvels we rely on today.

It was a dark and stormy night when a bolt of lightning hit the building and fried the server, paralyzing the entire company from the inside out. The following morning WrightPlan CEO Michael Cox was in his kitchen brewing his first cup of coffee when the phone rang at 6:30 a.m.

Cranes and rigging have always been a vital part of economic progress. When construction technology consisted of animal and human strength, cranes existed as pulleys and ropes. As crane design advanced so did architectural design and economic strength. For almost two hundred years people have associated the view of cranes in the sky with hope for better times.

Here are three of our favourite reasons to celebrate the mighty crane.

In March our team attended CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas to experience immersive field research and customer outreach. The convention featured more than 2500 exhibitors representing every major construction industry, and stretched across 2.5 million square feet. Our goals were to discover what attendees look for from an exhibitor, and learn from convention pros how to connect with prospects at a show of such grand size. 

Up until now, your sales team had to note all of the quote information from the client and pass it all along to your administrator to draft the invoice. Then the administrator had to send copies of those invoices – likely hard copies – to the sales person to review, whom then sent the marked up copies back to the administrator whom then passed the final versions to the bookkeeper to be entered into the accounting system. This process, although standard, isn’t efficient, and it leaves a lot of room for error. There are other things that your administrators and bookkeeper could be working on other than baseline data entry.

In April, I travelled to Orlando for the SC&RA annual conference: The Specialized Carriers and Riggers Association. In preparation for the event, I had two great banners designed by a local marketing company that had bright colors and clever copy written to draw people in. At conferences of this magnitude with over 700 attendees, it’s necessary to stand out. So imagine my dismay when I arrived at the sunny location but my banners didn’t.
