In recognition of climate and industry changes, Excalon has continued to invest in its Information Technology Strategy, with a goal of using cutting edge technology to support our delivery of utility infrastructure solutions. Using the latest mobile devices and cloud technology we are able to provide ourselves, our clients and ultimately our customers with real-time status updates of work instructions along with real-time management and monitoring of performance and safety levels.
A core part of our IT capability is our E-Track Works Management System. This system consists of a number of modules that support the delivery of our work instructions and projects from start to finish.
The Job Dispatch and Management module of Excalon’s Works Management system, used by the planning team and operatives, enables the business to carry out work instructions more efficiently, ensuring the operatives have all the information needed to carry out the work effectively and safely.
Each field operative receives the job details on their mobile device, including address, job attachments, drawings and workflow for completion.
The system also provides Dynamic Routing, where the system identifies the most efficient route for operatives on their way to a job based on their GPS location, route maps and up-to-date traffic data at the job location.
The system enables instant feedback from operatives and real time visibility of work progress.
The Job Dispatch and Management system also has intelligent notifications configured that will automatically notify the next stage in a work instruction. For example, once the excavation stage of a work instruction has been completed, a notification is sent immediately to the jointing team and the jointing workflow is initiated.
Excalon has intelligently invested in its IT systems to support its health and safety commitments. The Works Management system health and safety module ensures that we meet regulations and that staff follow the correct procedures to increase safety and reduce workplace risk. For example, the system ensures that all risk assessments are filled in on site. Any significant risk involved is highlighted and if this risk is deemed too high then proceeding with the job is prevented and requires contact with the Supervisor or office who can assist with eliminating the associated risk.
The Health and Safety module allows Excalon to track how safely on site work is performed by our employees and makes sure they work in a safe manner and react to any unsafe behaviour.
The system allows Excalon to have visibility of what is happening on site in real-time. Through the use of live site safety audits containing multiple images along with logical routing of health and safety issues as they occur.
Before, during and after any works are carried out, multiple photos and site safety reports take place. A trained individual in the head office then carefully inspects the photos and reports to ensure compliance and safety, and if necessary, take action to rectify any concerns.
Any non-compliances or concerns are logged in the Compliance Database and relevant management / supervisors are automatically notified.
The information that is inserted into the Compliance Database is then used as management information to highlight any trends or areas of concern that need addressing.
