Rosendin Electric Ranks Third on EC&M List of Top 50 Electrical Contractors for 2015

New Construction Projects, Increased Demand for Data Services, and More Efficient Field Operations Contribute to Improved Revenues for Rosendin Electric.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (October 23, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, was ranked third by revenue on the 2015 list of Top 50 Electrical Contractors compiled by Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) Magazine. Rosendin Electric was the only privately held electrical contractor to rank in the top four in revenue.

Rosendin Electric was among 10 contractors on the EC&M list to post annual gains of 15 percent or more in 2014. Much of the growth is attributed to economic recovery, since overall revenue from electrical and telecommunications projects climbed from $15.7 billion in 2013 to $21.8 billion in 2014. Regional markets where Rosendin Electric has a strong presence, such as San Francisco and Silicon Valley, have seen resurgence in new construction in 2014 and 2015 due to pent up demand. Rosendin Electric also had a variety of projects in the industries that demonstrated the strongest growth – healthcare, data center, power, education, and manufacturing.

In addition to increasing their volume of construction projects, Rosendin Electric continues to be a pioneer amongst peers in the development of technology to improve operational efficiency. Rosendin Electric was one of the first electrical contractors to equip project managers, superintendents, and field supervision with tablets to allow them to review project specs and diagrams, clock workers in and out, manage the supply chain, and much more. The use of sophisticated materials tracking software, for example, supports just-in-time delivery of essential materials to the job site to eliminate construction downtime. In addition, Rosendin Electric provides its employees with comprehensive documentation and hands-on training, as well as webinars and video clips to improve efficiency and safety in the field, all of which contributes to improved efficiency and reduced costs.

“There are so many ways that technology has helped us to become more productive,” Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric, told EC&M. “We now have tools to help us with everything from estimating to modeling to prefabrication. The benefits are just so wide-ranging.”

Market Rates Insight Releases Findings from its New Consumer Study: Growth and Revenue Potential from Emerging Financial Services

Market Rates Insight

New fee optimization study reveals perceived value of new financial services and how to optimize fees with service bundles to generate new revenue.

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (May 30, 2013) — Market Rates Insight, Inc., a leader in financial services intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, has completed the analysis phase of its latest consumer research and fee optimization study, “Growth and Revenue Potential for Emerging Financial Services.” The study examines 13 emerging financial services and assesses consumer attitudes about the importance and value of each service, segmented by banks and credit unions as well as demographic groups. The study findings will be reviewed in a webinar to be hosted by Market Rates Insight on June 18.

This study is the only one of its kind to measure consumer attitudes about banking fees and services and was conducted nationwide to help banks and credit unions better understand consumers and identify new revenue sources from fee-based services and service bundles. Banks and credit unions are facing new challenges from non-banking competitors offering banking services, and they need to identify new ways to attract and keep customers. This study provides empirical data on the importance and value of emerging services to help financial institutions create service offerings that attract and retain customers while building revenue.

Some of the preliminary findings reveal that identity theft alerts (70.8%), credit score reporting (71.4%), payment protection services (64.6%), and same-day bill pay (58.7%) currently ranked with the highest consumer demand. Other services such as eldercare services, prepaid reloadable cards, and location-based coupons showed the greatest growth potential with consumers.

This study also reveals for the first time how consumers value certain combinations of services. Consumers typically value service bundles more than individual services, and will pay a premium for bundled services. The study reveals which combination of services command higher fees because of increased consumer demand.

“For the foreseeable future deposit rates will remain flat and loan demand will stay soft, so financial institutions will have to rely in fee revenues for income growth. But to convert services from ‘free to fee,’ banks and credit unions will have to identify new services that consumers want and are willing to pay for. Our new study shows banks and credit unions how to use service fees to expand profits and penetration with both existing and new customers.”

The “Growth and Revenue Potential lf Emerging Financial Services” study is being offered in both an Essential and Premium package. The Essential package includes copies of the complete 150-page study and a competitive survey of 10 financial institutions and their adoption of the 13 emerging financial services. The Premium package includes the survey and competitive data, as well as an optimization analysis of service bundles, an online optimization consultation, copies of the Emerging Trend Spotlight quarterly update, and access to trend analysis and service integration online seminars.
