As our company has developed, our target clients have also developed towards the ‘Tier 1’ contractors. Due to this, management, health & safety and quality monitoring and recording is becoming crucial to complete the projects we are now targeting.
We have experienced consistent growth for the last 3 years, and set to double in size this year. This growth will result in new roles and further employment within the company. However, we have identified that we need to rapidly professionalise our software systems. We have already done the preliminary work and identified what we believe to be the best solutions to our needs. Although there are numerous other software like this, As a brief overview, our requirements are around an online software which is monitored by CCAP management and office staff to track the progress of all projects at tender stage and on site delivery. This software should allow CCAP to create the below:
- Daily logs
- Capture, share and report all data
- Safety observations
- SHEQ inspections
- Defect management
- Site diaries
- Invoice and material tracking
Once all these items have been tracked, the software will create a dashboard of all progress using a software like Microsoft Power BI.
Our requirement is to have this fully set up and operational by an external consultancy.
A software programme called Field View has been recommended to us, however, we are open to suggestions and advice to similar programmes as we know there are numerous like this on the market.
