  • Customer Testimonial: Mitch Urbanowicz with Monona Plumbing and Fire
    Mitch Urbanowicz manages the site utility and earthwork division for Monona Plumbing and Fire. In addition to managing their fleet of heavy equipment for earthwork and plumbing divisions, he has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry and heavy equipment market. He uses IVO Systems everyday. Below is our interview with Mitch. Do you use other software daily? Does your company use other software daily? I mean, the only software we actually use daily would be like Sage, which is our accounting software or Outlook or something like that. It’s not- no other type of tracking software, equipment, […]
  • How does implementation work?
    The implementation process for our software is very simple. We provide excel spreadsheets to customers so they can enter the information that they have into our spreadsheets that we import. If you have current, up-to-date lists of your equipment and project locations for TrackVO, and hour meters for MaintainVO, we can very easily and quickly import that information into IVO Systems for you to start using our software right away. During the implementation process, you send us your spreadsheets and we’ll set up meetings to review that information and use our industry specific experience to make sure you have set […]
  • What kind of customer support does IVO Systems offer?

We understand how important your operations are and we will do everything in our power to answer any of your questions within the business hours we are available. When you do call, you’re going to get […]
  • Who is IVO System’s ideal customer?
    We can help construction companies of all sizes and types improve their operations, but our main focus right now is the heavy civil construction market, because that’s where both of our co-founders have the most experience. Trying to manage your operations is not always easy- you may have multiple spreadsheets that need to constantly be updated by people in the field and people in the office. This means that occasionally, things can get quickly mixed up or missed completely. If your company has found itself in a situation like this, we can help you. You need software to help manage […]
  • Why does IVO Systems not provide bidding software?
    There’s many options for bidding software in the heavy civil industry. If you’re large enough, using bidding software is necessary. We at IVO Systems understand the need for bidding software, but we also understand how different bidding software is from what we do- primarily operational software. We recognize that typically, you might bid 20 jobs for every one job that you get. You need to set up each bid for each job as quickly and as accurately as possible. When you do get the job, you need to revise and update the information you have in order for it to […]
  • Why does IVO Systems not provide accounting software?
    When companies need to better manage their project costs, they often look for software solutions, which in many cases means graduating from a system like Quickbooks to a higher and more construction-specific accounting software. After these companies grow, they then try to use the same accounting software to manage their operations. This is cause for complication, as accounting and operations are often managed differently. Using accounting software to run your operations limits the field usability of the software. Our software is made specifically to be used in the field- where you make and lose your money. At IVO Systems, we […]
