Scott Heide, CEO of Engineering Intent was recently featured in the July issue of Supply Chain World magazine. Heide discussed how Monkeytoe Group, a full-service engineered HVAC system specialist firm found the ideal automated engineered platform. Monkeytoe provides building access and equipment platforms and mounts and were experiencing issues that arose as clients increasingly requested assistance. Read the full article here.
Previously the company had commissioned a configuration program; it proved very difficult to maintain. Additionally, the old configuration system could not handle the geometry and engineering of custom-engineered platforms. There was no workable way to capture the interconnected structural attributes needed to make a valid platform. According to Heide, that is when they found Engineering Intent.
Logan Klenner, a Monkeytoe Development Manager shared, “Turnaround time to the client has always been a significant factor for us. We always try to provide a high level of service. Clients present Monkeytoe with problems daily and by reducing turnaround time from a few days to a few hours for these clients puts us miles ahead of our competition.”
Sales and application engineers using the automated system reduce design time by more than 90%. Monkeytoe now bids on more jobs or focuses on more optimal designs, providing clients with a better overall service.
