Prior to using Clearstory, Marinship used paper/carbon copy T&M Tags. Foremen completed the tags in the field, then transported them to the office where they were scanned and logged. Once the scope of work was complete, the extra work was priced in an excel spreadsheet and submitted to the client with supporting documentation. Challenges with this process included:
"As an LBE company, our reputation is vital. Clearstory allows us to provide something that most of our larger competitors struggle with real-time cost impacts. We get more work because of this value-add."

This resulted in the following challenges:
Results after using Clearstory
Using Clearstory to digitally process T&M Tags and Change Orders has saved Marinship both time and money. They've also improved client relationships by providing real-time cost impacts to their clients.
“We will never go back to paper T&M Tags after using Clearstory.”
