NESCO Paving Avoids Getting Washed Out by Using Tomorrow.io
Established in 1945, New England Sealcoating Co. (NESCO) is a pavement maintenance company with 3 offices serving customers across New England. The company provides paving services for shopping centers, office buildings, athletic courts, apartment complexes and more.
Before Tomorrow.io, Nesco was using 3 different weather solutions to predict the weather. At the start of each day, if managers knew it was going to rain at 4pm, they could get some work done before the rain, but if it was going to rain at 10am, they’d need to cancel the team for the day or send them to a job in a different town where there wasn’t rain in the forecast. Unfortunately, the 3 weather solutions NESCO was using were often incorrectly predicting the exact location and timing of storms. Because of this, NESCO would have teams arrive at a job only to be “washed out” with rain or they’d cancel a job because there was a forecast of rain, and then it would end up being sunny and they missed a full day of work on a project.
A few highlights from The New England Patriots using Tomorrow.io to date include:
Accurately Planning Jobs
“Since we started using Tomorrow.io, we have had a much better ability to predict the start and end time of each storm. I have a tablet on the dashboard of my truck that I keep on at all times showing Tomorrow.io, and I watch the dots on the map to see exactly where each storm is and how it is moving forward. We’ve definitely saved costs and staff time by using this solution, and I’ve been recommending it to other pavement and construction companies.”
