Hanson wanted to make things as simple as possible for its field teams by finding a construction-specific tool that let them focus on their job instead of filling out paperwork.
Causeway Ermeo is a mobile workforce management solution that achieves this goal by connecting the site and office through digital workflows, with easy to use reporting functions.
The system integrates with external data sources, which can be synchronised directly with the forms, bringing all key data into one place.
As a result, Hanson Contracting has converted all paper forms into digital documents, but plans to go further by adopting timesheets, risk assessments, plant inspections, holiday requests, and other manual processes.
Chris Harrison, business manager at Hanson Contracting, said: “There is a lot of excitement from our business improvement team for Causeway Ermeo.
“We are always looking for any efficiencies and lean improvements to make in the business, and we see this solution as a key one. It’s also the back-end reporting.
“It is simple from the end user point of view, which is what we wanted. Basically, we can use it within the business itself to make us more agile and flexible.
“We want data and technology to be at the heart of everything that we do. It gives us better operational and commercial performance on site and also aligns us with our key customer’s vision for the future, such as National Highways Digital Roads strategy.”
Founded in 2015, Paris-based Ermeo was acquired by Causeway Technologies in April 2021.
