What Gets Measured Gets Done

Northern Dock Systems tracks key performance indicators (KPIs) during the entire process, from the time your phone call is picked up, to the time it takes the technician to reach your location, to completion times and to the time it takes our finance department to issue your invoice. We strongly believe what gets measured gets done more efficiently and quickly, which decreases our customers’ downtime and increases their productivity.

Response Times

We have optimized and implemented our dispatch systems (live updates, GPS tracking and technician schedules) to ensure that our response times are fast and accurate to give you the ease and comfort of knowing that someone is on their way to fix the issue.

First-Time Fixes

Our team of experienced technicians are equipped with the right knowledge, fully-stocked trucks, tools and support to make sure that the job is done speedily, properly and without unnecessary expenses on the first visit. 

Completion and Part Times

We believe that strong communication is key to any project. If your project requires a second visit or needs an uncommon part, we will track how long it takes to get the part in and for us to complete the project, while keeping you in the loop on the status.

Our Process

Step 1 – Conduct a Needs Assessment

Northern Dock Systems’ technicians use a multi-point Needs Assessment checklist to outline any inefficiencies or risks associated with your equipment to help you prepare for facility audits. All Needs Assessments are highly customized to meet your specific operational needs.

Step 2 – Onboard All Resources

Following the Needs Assessment, our technicians are well-informed of your operational requirements and work on a plan to implement any services or new equipment installations you may require. During this time, our dedicated National Service department comes up with a 90-day plan for your business’ key locations and allocates the necessary field resources by location to save you money on dispatching costs.

Step 3 – Execution and Regular Follow-Up

Whenever any maintenance work is completed, Northern Dock Systems’ technicians train your staff on how to operate any new piece of equipment or how to better maintain existing equipment. Our service department maintains periodic communication via email with the headquarters of your company to keep them informed about any opportunities for improvement, upcoming services and services that have been completed.
