How Domo Helps Layton Achieve Predictable Outcomes
SALT LAKE CITY (March 20, 2019) – This morning at Domo’s annual user meeting, Domopalozza, changemakers and industry leaders met in Salt Lake City to discuss the platform and share success stories. Layton Construction team members were on hand as Layton President and CEO David S. Layton took the stage to discuss how Layton uses technology to stay at the forefront of the construction industry.
Domo is an operating system which allows businesses to visualize all of their data – from financials to operations – in one dashboard. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform helps Layton provide the predictable outcomes that are key to its overarching strategy.
During his 20-minute fireside chat with Domo CEO Josh James, David Layton talked about how Domo provides Layton Construction with a quick, real-time snapshot of operations at jobsites and regional offices nationwide. Domo’s platform helps Layton track critical aspects of the business that may need to change in order to help keep employees safe and projects on track.
“Safety is a huge deal for us—in fact it’s one of our key values as a company. I use Domo cards to drill down into safety incidents—see where it’s happening and who is involved. As a team, we can then change the actions and outcomes that aren’t acceptable,” said Layton. “Between our team members on the ground and our subcontractors, we’re working 10-15 million hours a year. Our Domo dashboard provides a level of safety transparency [for our subcontractors and others]. Many times these groups weren’t aware we could provide that level of detail at the contractor level.”Layton emphasized the importance of real-time data in providing customer service within the construction industry as well. “We’ve now got a dashboard populated with key metrics that we can pull up when we’re headed to a jobsite or traveling. Our team can stay in touch with those on the ground. When we get to the jobsite, we know where we need to spend our time. It allows us to provide a better experience for our customer than what our industry is known for.”
