Want to Improve Site Investigation Productivity?

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Is it more important to cut costs, or to provide innovative solutions? Stop and think about it. You need to make your operations more cost effective to get through this lean period, but at the same time, you want to improve your competitive edge by offering more and better services to your clients. You might be forgiven for thinking that these two objectives are mutually exclusive: “Surely we can’t offer a better site investigation without increasing our running costs?”
Well, yes actually, you can.
Firstly, by making sure you log your data directly into an electronic database, and then having in place applications that can directly consume the data for output and analysis, you immediately improve workflow, working practices, quality control, and staff morale. Your productivity improves many-fold, and you free up valuable engineers to do the task for which you employed them, saving possibly thousands of pounds every month.
Secondly, because you have fully automated the data process, you can produce high quality, sophisticated output at a fraction of the cost of doing so manually, giving your end product a consistently professional look and feel, no matter how big or small the job. If you perform that well on a small job your client will confidently award you the big one waiting around the corner. And if they need digital data to import into their own applications, or special 3D graphics and on screen visualisations, you can feel confident in your ability to deliver quickly and with minimal extra effort.
So you see, making the business case is easy. Now you just need to act to make it happen. If not you, who? If not now, when?
