Five Rivers Environmental Contracting Ltd. is a family owned Small / Medium Enterprise (SME) based in Southern England. Founded in 1994 Five Rivers provides specialist contracting, consultancy and ecological services to a range of clients across the UK. We pride ourselves on providing a professional, pragmatic and innovative service as well as ensuring we get the best possible environmental gains on each project.
Five Rivers wanted to streamline their processes and after talking to them we were able to present them with features within BuilderStorm that would make their operational activities run smoother and much more efficiently. The team wanted an easy way to be able to access all the forms that they require on site, which once completed could be easily stored and retrieved. To assist in project planning, Five Rivers were keen to have a feature that would work as a daily planner, so they could see, at a glance who was working where and doing what. We also worked with them to set up an induction process which would be site specific to share with people before they came on site.
Our Digital Document feature provided the perfect solution, enabling their teams to complete documents on mobile devices. We worked with Five Rivers to turn each of their forms into a digital version, ensuring every team member could have access to the relevant forms at the touch of a button. This reduced waste lost and damaged paperwork.
Allocations were used to provide a solution to the challenge of daily planning and tracking of project tasks. Allocations provided them with the opportunity to see at a glance who is doing what and where. Our User Induction feature allowed us to create Site Specific inductions completely tailored to Five Rivers requirements. We were able to capture and upload to the BuilderStorm site relevant documentation such as CSCS cards and create a Health and Safety slide-show which the user could watch before entering onto the site, saving yet more lost time.
As with all our clients, we worked closely with Five Rivers to ensure we matched their requirements and provided full on-site training and on-going support ensuring that it delivers value as quickly as possible.
“Since taking on the project of integrating BuilderStorm into our daily company practices I have spent a lot of time speaking to and learning from the BuilderStorm support and training team. We had a short period of time to integrate the software into working practices and during this intense time the team were and continue to be fantastic. No matter how many ‘stupid’ questions I fired at them, the whole team answered in a timely and professional manner and always make sure we have everything we need to resolve and challenge. The Implementation Manager, has a clear and concise communication style making the learning process that much easier for training both over the phone and in person. She been out to the office and spent days training us which has resulted in such a solid understanding of what is possible as well as how to use the package for current requirements, that we have now been able to fully implement BuilderStorm into our project management”
