Griffon Technical Services: streamlining inventory and purchasing to save time

Griffon team - Sheetgo for Supply Chain

Griffon Technical Services, a specialized maintenance provider for twin-engine and single-engine piston aircraft, faced significant challenges in managing their inventory. With a small team of six dedicated professionals based in Canada, the company sought a solution to overhaul their manual inventory processes that relied on pads and papers.

The challenge

  • Looking for a scalable solution that would replace paper
  • Needed something that would be acutally implemented by the mechanics team
  • Tired of trying expensive software that would not be user friendly

Before discovering Sheetgo, Griffon Technical Services was overwhelmed by inefficiencies and inaccuracies in their inventory management system. The manual entry was time-consuming prone to errors, and a previously attempted program — despite its high cost and extensive six-month training — failed to meet their needs, being too complicated and inflexible for their specific processes.

“We needed something that could keep pace with our demanding environment but was also simple enough for our team to use. We found Sheetgo, and it was exactly what we were looking for.”

The solution

Griffon purchased two modules of Sheetgo’s premium solutions that were customized to their own needs: inventory and purchase order. They duplicated the inventory and purchase modules, one for managing orders from their main client and another for the rest of their clients. This custom setup ensured they were never understocked according to their own specific requirements. 

Sheetgo became the permanent, scalable solution for Griffon Technical Services. Its user-friendly design and robust automation features allowed for a seamless transition from their previous, labor-intensive system. 

The implementation of Sheetgo transformed the way Griffon’s team worked. Mechanics now use scan guns for check-in and check-out processes, integrating seamlessly with Sheetgo’s system. This not only eliminated the inaccuracies but also significantly reduced the time spent on inventory management.

The results

    • Remote access to live data
    • 100% data traceability
    • Always in stock for their clients

    With Sheetgo, Griffon Technical Services has not only overcome their original challenges but has also unlocked new levels of efficiency and flexibility. The team can work remotely, ensuring operations continue smoothly, regardless of their location. The administrative burden has decreased markedly, allowing the team to focus more on their core mission of maintaining aircraft safety and reliability.

    With the support and flexibility provided by Sheetgo, Griffon Technical Services is set for further growth and efficiency improvements. They also really appreciate the responsive support from Sheetgo, addressing any issues quickly and effectively, ensuring a smooth operation.

    “It was a real headache before… now that’s pretty well solved. We’re able to work from anywhere and it still functions, which is really nice. The service, the attention that we got, we’re blown away by it. How comfortable we all are using it”
