Improving Productivity and Project Delivery In The Construction Industry

Last week we were pleased to take part in an online webinar event, OPEX Week Live 2019, discussing all things operational excellence and business transformation, hosted by the process experts at Process Excellence Network.

During the three day event, which covered a vast range of digital technologies being leveraged by businesses, we took part in the round of discussions on day two. During our session we highlighted the impacts and benefits received by the A14 Integrated Delivery Team by automating their business processes. After all, people want to hear real world stories which showcase tangible and achievable goals being reached.

I guess you're probably wondering what exactly we shared with attendees on the day then aren't you?

Moving Paper Online

Shay O'Connor, Head of Solutions and Paul Stone, Solutions Architect at FlowForma offered the audience an up close, real world insight into how the UK's largest road construction project, a £1.5bn joint venture, addressed construction site challenges around paper-based business processes and governance.

Improving Productivity and Project Delivery In The Construction Industry - Construction Chaos

Replacing manual processes has become a consistent challenge for businesses in this industry. As you can imagine, construction sites can be quite vast in size, meaning logistics in getting sign off on a process can become difficult for process owners. Logistical issues such as these often lead to project delays and even in some cases, documents being lost. To put it into perspective, in the case of the A14 IDT there are more than 2,500 workers across the site.

Step forward FlowForma Process Automation.

This tool is revolutionizing the construction and engineering sectors due to its no code capability, meaning business people can complete processes such as site visit requests without the need for IT to administer. Employees can deploy these processes on-site without internet access using FlowForma's clever mobile app to cache information, photos and other documents! This information can then be uploaded once they obtain internet access at a later time.

Webinar Highlights

Attendees of our session during OPEX Week were treated with additional use cases of automating construction business processes, such as labour procurement and targeted risk monitoring. Attendees also learned how other construction companies are using digital solutions to improve productivity and project delivery.
