Record and report on site information to track project progress.
To manage large multi-million pound construction projects it was necessary to develop a system that would record site information, people and track expenditure. ConstructSys developed a new web based system from the ground up; streamlining processes and providing secure compatible access across platforms. During the development process new features were added, including the ability to record site photos and real time Subcontractor communications.
"The Site Information Management System (SIMS) has revolutionised the way Morgan Sindall manage site information. Increasing compliance in terms of using the correct forms for the job in hand and filing them in the right areas with the correct naming structure simply. The theory of inputting data once and using it many times has really helped to implement the new system with users realising benefits in time and effort from day one."Senior Business Systems Analyst Morgan Sindall
SIMS is a web application written to work on mobile devices as well as desktop allowing site managers to record and track data from site. The existing Project workbook management system was susceptible to frequent system crashes due to poor system design and development. In addition information about projects held in various other systems needed to be recorded in a central location. SIMS enables all information about a project to be captured in one place, therefore increasing efficiency through streamlining processes.
