    Additional information:
    Preston Gleason is a proposal coordinator for DIS-TRAN. When a bid project involving metric conversions became unwieldy, an engineer suggested PTC Mathcad. Gleason learned the software quickly. Performing calculations for an electrical substation job became dramatically quicker. Where one structure had taken him two working days to bid, with PTC Mathcad, he needed only 20 minutes to do the same calculations.
     
    Note that as a Proposal Coordinator, Gleason’s work isn’t billed to clients. So, fast, accurate work is vital in his role.
     
    The engineering team at DIS-TRAN Steel also uses PTC Mathcad in their daily work.


    Initiatives
    Expand PTC Mathcad use and benefits beyond engineering team
    Streamline metric conversion work
    Ensure accuracy and confidence in company proposals and quotes
    Speed Request For Quote and Request For Proposal work

    Solution
    Metric conversions and similar work can be automated, even for large, complex projects
    New users in the proposal department adopt the software quickly
    PTC Mathcad quickly documents calculations in easy-to-understand format, far superior to Excel, Google tools, and hand-written calculations

    Results
    Analysis that required 15 hours now takes 20 minutes
    Metric conversion work on complex projects cut by 80%, creating a dramatic savings in time to generate proposals
    Confidence in accuracy of proposals increased
    Reduce time to create bids by 93%
    Multiple departments across company adopting PTC Mathcad

    2. 2. 2 DIS-TRAN Steel reduces time to create RFP’s by 93% using PTC Mathcad DIS-TRAN Steel, LLC has been providing the utility industry transmission and substation steel structures for over 45 years. These structures include tapered tubular poles, wide flange, square tube, and lattice structures. DIS-TRAN’s specialty is providing outstanding customer service, flexible scheduling for quick turn projects, and the highest quality product for their customers. “On a recent project, initially it took me 15 hours to perform the calculations I needed for a single structure. I downloaded PTC Mathcad and finished the whole project, including five additional structures, in just three hours. PTC Mathcad is reducing overhead costs as we prepare proposals. It freed me up to work on more bids and more creative projects.” Preston Gleason, Procurement Coordinator
