Bellway employs more than 2,000 people across 19 regional divisions in England, Scotland and Wales, and supports thousands of sub-contractors. Bellway has been awarded 5-star status by the Home Builders Federation, confirming the developer’s position as one of the country’s top housebuilders.
Bellway required a single platform for all divisions to use when issuing drawings and RFI’s. Their IT team wanted to standardise the process so that each division was on the same page, improving productivity and information flow.
BuilderStorm is a user-friendly, cloud-based system, which offers an excellent drawing and RFI solution for Bellway, its sub-contractors and designers. Our drawing solution manages revision control, audit history and drawing approvals, so it is ideal for Bellway’s requirements. The RFI system timestamps every action and shows the status of any given project in a colour-coded view, providing instant feedback on the state of the RFIs. Bellway will also be taking advantage of our other 20+ features as it progresses with the system over the coming months.
The key feature was the usability of the software: having a system in place that anyone could use with minimal training was a huge advantage. Bellway also liked that BuilderStorm does not have a limit as to the number of possible users or projects, the company can invite sub-contractors and designers to use a cloud-based platform without increasing costs. Our support has been instrumental in bringing Bellway’s divisions up to speed so the whole group can benefit from the investment.
“BuilderStorm offered a robust, easy-to-use solution that ticked all the boxes. We looked at many other solutions, but BuilderStorm suited our requirements, at a competitive price point.”
