Construction, infrastructure, and public works service providers use fleet management and health and safety solutions to support and finesse a range of functions such as job planning, costing, logistics, and driver and lone worker safety.
Operating in a highly competitive environment, and working within the constraints of contracted projects is generating increasing pressure to make informed decisions backed by insightful data.
Operators realise that Infrastructure personnel and services engaged or mandated for single contracts can prove costly and difficult to match with contracted periods, and therefore ensuring these projects are running lean but efficiently minimises the risk of budget overruns.
This improved and more effective project oversight also provides opportunities to exceed contractual requirements, delivering more effective ROI and improved outcomes. By capturing auxiliary information and activity effective project accounting is enabled and overall value to the client increased.
Health and safety are also core requirements for many contracts, with lone worker and driver safety being aspects where significant risk mitigation is required. Achieving this, for staff across multiple roles, and if necessary during interactions with the public, requires comprehensive solutions. The use of personal safety devices and appropriate policy and compliance initiatives all have a role to play in improving safety, which ultimately delivers better contractual outcomes and reduced disruption to projects.
In a highly competitive marketplace, organisations will discover that metrics on contract performance, health and safety, and historical insights can all provide ways to differentiate their offer.
