With over 1,200 employees in 48 states, Tilson is an organically grown construction consulting and telecommunications services firm that is scaling at an unprecedented rate. The company is hiring over 100 employees each month with most of its workforce in the field. To scale and support an increased portfolio of national projects and safety operations, Tilson needed a new system management software across the entire organization that would improve safety reporting compliance and enhance visibility into field crew activities. Tilson’s own consulting team took on the task of managing the selection and implementation of the new safety management software, completing the process within six months.
Large-scale implementations such as this typically span a year or more for most organizations. However, in just six months, Tilson’s consulting team selected, built, implemented, and optimized a safety management system, HSI Donesafe, that replaced seven disparate data collection methods and centralized critical areas of data gathering. The six-month project timeline included eight weeks of selection and business analysis followed by a 15-week implementation phase. The completed transformation now allows Tilson employees full visibility of real-time data and removes information trapped in department siloes.
