The initial rollout of PlanRadar proved to be a success for HCIP. The first major project where the software was in use resulted in the best quality finish that the team had ever achieved. Luke credits PlanRadar as being a major part of this achievement, serving as a tool that allowed HCIP to deliver the highest quality results for their client.
Following this, HCIP rolled out PlanRadar to all new projects and then to all existing projects across the company for snagging and other project management tasks.
One of the unanticipated benefits seen by HCIP is that contracts managers now easily have oversight of the projects that are further away from the main office in Yorkshire. With active projects in southwest England, the Midlands and near London, PlanRadar gives HCIP the ability to actively monitor progress on those sites even when not physically present. This was especially relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic when social distancing measures were in place on sites.
PlanRadar has proved to be an effective solution for snagging, documentation and communication, enabling the team to provide their clients with comprehensive snag lists and other reports. Moreover, the increased digitisation of HCIP’s internal processes is enabling them to reach new heights of best practice.
