As the demand for electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure surges, Miller EV Solutions faces a monumental challenge: executing site walks for projects across the nation on deadline — and with efficiency in mind.
With hundreds of locations in need of assessment, coordination was a logistical puzzle that needed an innovative solution.
Enter Condoit, an app designed to quickly and accurately collect electrical infrastructure information in the field, plan for new equipment, and analyze new designs according to NEC standards.
Simplifying Site Assessments
Miller EV Solution’s partnership with Condoit proved to be transformative.
“Condoit’s core values align with ours,” said Mike Hall, Director of EV Development with Miller EV Solutions. “The company was founded by an electrician who was doing things on pen and paper — and knew there was a better way. They tailor solutions specifically to electricians, and there’s a lot of value in that.”
Condoit provided the Miller EV Solutions team with a streamlined approach to create EV charger installation estimates by leveraging a mobile app tailored to Miller’s needs. This mobile solution became the linchpin in revolutionizing the data collection process for both internal and external reps.
Because of Condoit, Miller EV Solutions is able to increase savings for the client in terms of time and money. The application helps to reduce errors, eliminate unnecessary information, and create a clear-cut proposal containing all relevant details for the client.
For example, through a customized form, Miller EV Solutions team members and representatives used their mobile devices to:
- Capture comprehensive photos of existing equipment and job sites
- Utilize Google maps and mark-up tools to strategize optimal charger locations
- Analyze load requirements, identifying the necessity for new equipment
- Generate as-built and alternative digital designs via one-line diagrams
- Automatically compile a bill-of-materials for required new equipment
- Expedite estimate generation, reducing the timeline from days to hours
Profiles in Innovation
Miller EV Solutions, with its multiple branch locations and numerous industry alliances, serves electric vehicle clients across the nation. The company’s commitment to consistency across its footprint provides clients with a unified point of contact for their electrical and technological infrastructure requirements.
“I went from three tools to one for my site assessments. I had to use Bluebeam, AutoCAD, and my phone for photos before Condoit,” said Brian Arnold, a Project Manager at Miller EV Solutions.
Created by electricians for electricians, Condoit emerges as a game-changer in the digital toolbox realm. Offering a user-friendly interface, automated workflows, and real-time data sharing, Condoit empowers its users to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and reduce manual process expenses.
