products furnished to these sites and were chosen for a few reasons. In ad- dition to being specified by the end- user, our experience has shown these to be among the most trusted sources based on their product quality, lon- gevity, and the degree of manufac- turer service and support provided,” DeRose said of the advanced switch- gear and LED low-bays, wallpacks, emergency lighting, and exit signs installed. In addition to providing compre- hensive project management services —including photometric reviews, submittals, and advanced logistics planning—the YESCO team also offered distribution management to the project, engaging in product ware- housing where required and working with on-site engineers, project man- agers, and manufacturer reps to en- sure the on-time and accurate product deliveries that took place over a one- year period.
Complex Projects According to DeRose, this project demonstrated that job management software for complex projects is a must. “At YESCO, we’ve deployed the company-wide use of software that allows for the editing and tracking of job business in a much easier manner than before, enabling us to offer ser- vices to larger businesses and more complex projects that require greater attention to detail,” he explained. “Saving customers time and money is vitally important and it’s critical to be able to deliver top-notch service and track purchase order changes without risk of errors. We’re excited to have the provisions in place to move fast and track every detail in support of ensuring those objectives.” Of their involvement with the high-profile DAPL project, DeRose said that the YESCO team feels a great sense of pride and gratitude. “Managing a project of this size requires careful scrutiny, great atten-
tion to detail, and the trust of all par- ties involved and we couldn’t have completed it without the outstanding technical support provided by our employees or the positive collabora- tive efforts of the many partners in- volved,” DeRose said. “We feel great to have helped bring this project to a successful conclusion and we look for- ward to more opportunities to work on other large and complex projects in the future.” ; Bloom is a 25-year veteran of the lighting and electrical products industry.
