Plant

Mobile technology supports three key areas of importance in the Plant sector:

  • Utilisation and costing
  • Protection
  • Safety

Plant and equipment used on site is often large and often expensive. A major objective in the management of contract cost is to ensure that the equipment is there when it is needed, utilised effectively, and then returned as soon as possible. Time is money. 

Utilisation

COINS-mobile applications can keep track of when plant is on site and can help identify and process plant to be taken off hire. For example, the app can be set up to show an alert if the plant has exceeded the expected on hire period. 

COINS-mobile apps provide a level of visibility for plant that can easily be lost on large complex construction contracts. The mobile app can also set and amend cost codes so that the cost of plant is charged to the right element of the contract.

Protection

Hire companies have been known to incorrectly charge for damage to plant used. Photographic evidence can show the condition and damage to equipment when it is received, dispatched, and returned off hire. What is more, the application can be used to correctly identify serial numbers and retain photos so that there is no confusion as to the assets on hire.

Health and Safety

It is important that plant users are given the proper safety information and guidance. This can be delivered using mobile technology. By accessing HR records, the technology can also be used to ensure that the employee is properly qualified and has had the training to use that plant.
