LEM Construction

Tenna Customer Story

The Rundown on LEM Construction

LEM Construction is a general contractor in Houston, Texas, in business for over 50 years. They build water and wastewater treatment plants and own and operate a fleet of heavy and light equipment including backhoes, excavators, forklifts, dozers, cranes, compactors, skid steers, service trucks, trailers and more.

The Challenge

LEM Construction needed an equipment management solution to replace their frustrating and unscalable process of tracking manually. After a poor experience with a previous tracking provider, LEM was hesitant to invest in another equipment management software. They also sought to integrate their equipment management data with their accounting system, Sage, for more accurate accounting and financials.

The Tenna Solution

Here’s what Mike H., Equipment Manager, and Tex A., Field Technician, had to say about Tenna:

Accurate Financials

“We can be much more accurate with our financials than we’ve ever been before. And that’s true. Knowing where equipment is all the times and the financials being accurate; just those two things have been a game changer for us. Not to mention the maintenance.”

Fuel Consumption & Usage

“We’re able to look at fuel usage and fuel consumption. Very handy for us to know because in the past we didn’t know and now Tenna provides us this information.”

Cost Savings with Idle Reports

“[Tenna] tells me if a driver is idling at a location. This is important because time is money and when we have people that are not going to the location in a timely manner, it may cost a lot of money.”

Sage Integration

“We were able to integrate the data points into our Sage software system. We had some specific things that we needed to ask and answer and so we worked with our accounting team and with Tenna. Collectively we came up with what our company needed, what was financially important to us, what information we needed from Tenna and they were able to fulfill those requirements. Since we were able to integrate into Sage, Tenna gives our financial people update current information to allow us to make better decisions on when we need to purchase new equipment when we need to rent equipment.”

Easily Prioritize Maintenance Requests

“[Maintenance] helps me know when the assets’ preventative maintenance is coming up, which asset are already there, and how to prioritize getting stuff done throughout the day in the week.”

The Results

LEM Construction Knows More with fleet visibility and notifications, Controls More with utilization and automated preventive maintenance reminders and Makes More against their bottom line by reducing their equipment costs and integrating their equipment cost information with Sage, their ERP.

Cost Savings

Reduced equipment costs substantially.

Saves Time

Big time saver in the shop and field.
