C A S E S T U D Y | +1 800.333.3197 Lehman Roberts Company, a Heavy Highway contractor based in Memphis, TN since 1939 switched to Vista™ by Viewpoint in 2010 from a legacy system that had been implemented in the 1980's. Focusing on large, complex paving and road building projects, the need to upgrade to an integrated, contemporary software solution was essential to stay on top of the rapidly shifting and changing heavy highway business requirements. As Lehman Roberts Company learned, implementing new software is only half the battle. "Having worked on such an antiquated system for so long, the computer proficiency here was reasonably behind," explained Lehman Roberts Vice President, Patrick Nelson. "We naturally had some basic and simple questions to get the team up to speed." Every question is a smart question After transitioning to Vista from the old legacy system, Lehman Roberts Company had roughly 30 users working daily on the new software. As Nelson explained, many of those users had some questions that other vendors might consider "silly." Viewpoint Construction Software was able to answer seemingly obvious and simple questions nearly every day as the transition to the new ERP system progressed. Nelson declared, "With Viewpoint, there are no bad questions. I'm always very impressed with the team's patience and the insistence on putting the customer first." He added, "Other vendors say, 'There's no problem with the software, the problem is with your user.' Not Viewpoint – they analyze the issue and address it quickly." It's this level of assistance and comfort that Lehman Roberts Company strongly believes is the reason their users feel so confident calling support with any question or issue. Urgent needs get an urgent response Lehman Roberts Company is used to responding quickly to situations that need immediate attention and they rightfully expect that of their partners and vendors. An issue developed around submitting a required W2 form to the state of Arkansas. Even though the problem was not Lehman Roberts Company experiences outstanding customer support as an integral part of their software implementation.
