our data is now far more powerful. It automatically takes our figures and presents them in a way that makes it possible to quickly spot trends, or areas that need addressing.”


“THE KEY BENEFIT FROM INFO


EXCHANGE IS


THAT OUR DATA IS NOW FAR MORE POWERFUL.”


EFFECTIVE DATA SHARING In addition to this, IE2 is making significant improvements to data management on Ferrovial Agroman’s joint ventures. Now customary practice for the UK’s large scale infrastructure schemes, Ferrovial Agroman will often partner with other leading contractors. In such instances, the sharing of information between partners can be a challenge. Each partnering company not only requires access to any data collected, but they also need it to be reported with their specific terminology and analytical preferences.


Before the installation of IE2, Ferrovial Agroman would need to manually update the database two or three times, depending on the number of companies involved in the joint venture. Data sharing in this way can be an extremely inefficient use of resources, leaving margin for human error and reducing effectiveness of operation. On understanding the challenge faced by Ferrovial Agroman and indeed, the industry, Alcumus was able to create a bespoke piece of software that allowed the data collected to feed all parties directly, whilst meeting the individual analytical and terminology requirements.


Declan added: “We knew there must be a more resourceful and timely technique to share data, so when we started utilising Info Exchange, we quickly sought advice from Alcumus as we were confident this was something they could resolve and deliver. Sharing data between

two or three different companies is an extremely common process in the industry these days, especially with the increase in British infrastructure. So it’s important to have software that allows companies to do this.”


ZERO INCIDENT GOALS Since the introduction of IE2, Ferrovial Agroman has also noticed an increase in near-miss reporting, and improved quality of reports from employees. The fact that IE2 clearly results in process improvements and incident reductions encourages employees to report, whilst also making key elements mandatory and ensuring all reports are accurate and correct. In addition, Alcumus has launched a user-friendly mobile app, which helps to reflect real-time reporting and ensures a far more accessible approach for employees.


Declan commented: “It’s vital that near misses are recorded so we can prevent them from happening again. Our goal is to achieve a zero incident environment for all of our sites and we’re hoping Info Exchange can help us succeed. We have implemented a number of improvements to how near-misses are reported over the years. IE2 has been instrumental in driving this change and we can now see one near miss report for every 700 hours worked. ”


JOINING FORCES Alan Neill, SVP of Software Solutions at Alcumus, commented: “The reporting of health and safety and

risk management is often not seen as essential, however, as Ferrovial Agroman has demonstrated, preventing more serious accidents from occurring is largely down to how the smaller incidents are reported.


“The ability to share reliable, accurate data is becoming increasingly important and those demands will continue to place pressure on firms like Ferrovial Agroman. The future of the construction, engineering and manufacturing industries is likely to require increased business collaboration through joint ventures, which places further demand for systems that enable streamlined data sharing in real-time. At a time when the government is calling for an increase in British infrastructure, it’s vital that sharing data and effective communication is made simple and hassle free, encouraging companies to join forces on large-scale projects.”
