With Blue Margin's help, we can walk on the bridge and the gauges are turning on and coming to life.  All of these efforts help us navigate operations, finance, logistics, dispatch, service, billing, collections, and tens of thousands of service calls per year.

"The greatest impact has been on the manufacturing side. The Efficiency and Utilization Report eliminated a workbook with multiple data sources.  We used to generate that report once per month, limiting our ability to react.  We do it daily now.  We adjust as we go, making our response much closer to the actual event, which has increased production"

“Thank you again for the partnership.  Our  CFO is a big believer of the product and wants to do away with all the reports that aren't Power BI.  For all of us in the management team, we truly believe Blue Margin has been instrumental not only to the success of this project, but to the success of Almo.”
