Mechanical Contractors that use Asana

Good Afternoon,

Are there any mechanical contractors or general contractors on this forum that use Asana to manage their workflows? If yes, would you be willing to speak with me? I want to better understand how I can leverage Asana for my business.

Thanks,

Joe

Hi,

I think you’ll have better luck talking to an Asana expert who knows a lot of different use cases and will tailor the answer to your needs! Have a look on https://minimalist-work.com/asana/experts to pick one.

We are a ~400 employee HVAC, Electric, and Plumbing trades company. We do New Construction work, Install/Replacement work, and Service work… both residential and commercial.

We use Asana in various ways in our company, so depending on what you’re considering I might be able to give some input/feedback based on our experience. That sound like what you’re looking for?

Yes! Would love to speak with you if you have availability.
We are a 35 employee company that focuses primarily steam/hydronic boilers.
We manage around 100 jobs at any given point in time.
We are using Asana currently but I believe we can be using it better.
Reached out to Asana consultants and have meetings setup for next week to review our setup.
That being said, I would love the opportunity to speak with someone like yourself to see how your team leverages Asana’s features and functionality for your operations.

Thanks so much,

Joe

hey I work as a contractor for a large firm. I am a specialist in foundations. I think that our company does use Asana in order to free up the workload and in general to help the contractors manage their time better. i feel like it helps people as well that are looking for general contractors to hire since they can get an answer faster and have their job done quicker. I find this very helpful as well since I am cable of managing my time better and I know for sure which projects I have at any given day. It also helps me keep my schedule as full or as light as I want it to be

I work as a consultant to a few regional contracting and service firms. Site, utility, and septic system services/contracting in specific. Employee count varies from 5-100 employee size with diversified contract/maintenance/service scopes.
Asana has been flexible enough to work for contracting/service teams regardless of their size. I would say the rollout for admin personnel is always smoother than field technicians. We have been somewhat successful in companywide rollouts, but the task-completion mentality for field technicians is very different for sequential projects (almost every task has a dependency) versus an agile professional environment.
We’ve experiemented with a two-perspective approach. One perspective is from business support function and the second from field operations (revenue-generating functions). Followed the Asana suggestion for executive buy-in>team leader buy-in>companywide buy-in.
A good strategy is to pick a single process and require everyone to coordinate using Asana and build from there. We found that individual stakeholders built out the rollout from there.
