CoreTigo started scaling, and with that came multiple challenges. “Before monday.com everything was handled over emails, which took a lot of time and created unnecessary friction”, says Ofer Blonskey, Co-Founder and VP R&D at CoreTigo.
Many of the processes involve several steps which were done manually by different team members. “The Ops manager needed to manually generate a report once a week. That wasn’t helpful or quick enough and it didn’t provide the visibility we were looking for”, says Blonskey.
Whenever anyone needed to know the status of a task or find information crucial for their work, they had to look for the right person and ask them directly. They couldn’t track their progress properly because each team was using a different software, which also made it harder for them to keep their customers up to date with the status of their projects.
“Contacting our customers was handled through Salesforce, product deliveries and inventory were handled on our ERP system, and all communications were done over email”, says Blonskey.
They were simply lacking flexibility in the way they worked together and they needed an all-in-one solution.
Next-level project management
“The tools we were using were all too cumbersome and felt very high-maintenance. monday.com was able to provide us with a much more easy-to-use platform which allows each team member to create their own boards and workflows.” says Blonskey.
CoreTigo wanted a board that shows the progress of the process and sends notifications when a new PO arrives, or if a stage is stuck. “So far we managed this process manually but monday.com were able to simplify the workflow to the point where it is now running seamlessly. It saved us a lot of time and effort, and made everything easy to manage in one place. It created visibility and transparency which we have never had before.”
By redefining the workflow on a monday.com board, CoreTigo no longer need to actively look for information, as it’s all available to them in one easy-to-find place.
Communicating outside of the box
Similar to any other process managed, CoreTigo used emails to work and communicate with both their suppliers and customers. This resulted in long email threads which made it hard for CoreTigo to keep their customer up to date with the progress of the projects, which often led to silos and frustration on both sides.
“Our suppliers and customers completely rely on monday.com and we are now facing a situation where they won’t even agree to meet with us unless everything is updated on our shared boards. Working with people outside of CoreTigo has never been easier”, says Blonskey.
With monday.com implemented across the different departments, it’s now much easier for the teams to work, but more importantly to work together.
“With the new PO process implemented with monday.com we were able to optimize our product delivery times and the amount of deliveries we can handle”, says Blonskey.
By better prioritizing their tasks, CoreTigo were able to dramatically increase their product deliveries by 300%.
“At the same amount of delivery time (3-5 days per product), we were able to ramp up the number of product deliveries from 60 to 180 per week”, says Blonskey.
Efficiency and productivity are no longer a distant dream, but a full-time reality for all teams at CoreTigo.
