Looking for the right management software package is no easy task. After spending three years researching the options, R Collard concluded that RedSky’s Document Management, Forms & Workflow and Email Archiving system was the pick of the bunch.
R Collard is the South of England’s leading provider of Demolition, Waste Management, Skip Hire, Metal Recycling, Scrapyard and Car Scrapping services.
Director Phil Wilding recognised that the Demolition side of the business needed a new management software package that would boost operational efficiency in three areas: filing emails, accessing information remotely and reducing paperwork.
Phil has signed up for the Summit Email Archiving module, which will provide a much better filing system. He said: “We have also taken on the Summit Document Management module. If our supervisors arrive on a site to carry out demolition work, they must prove the competence of their team.
“With Summit, they’ll be able to access individual training records and certificates on their tablet or laptop at the touch of a button. They’ll also be able to email these documents to whoever needs them.”
The Demolition team currently fills in timesheets and diaries by hand, on paper. It’s not ideal, because some sites are a long distance away from the North Hampshire-based head office where the documents are processed.
However, Phil is confident that things are about to change for the better: “Once the Summit Online Forms module is up and running, the people working on the Demolition side of the business will switch to electronic timesheets and diaries, which should simplify things.”
RedSky Sales Director Rob Weir said: “We are delighted to welcome a new member to the Summit community and we will be working closely with R Collard to make sure the company gains maximum benefit from the system.”
