Balfour Beatty wanted to bring a fully integrated mobile workforce management and scheduling solution to two areas of its Gas and Water business. Kirona worked with Balfour Beatty to configure its leading field service software; Dynamic Resource Scheduling (DRS) and Job Manager Software to enable them to enable them to achieve their business objectives.
Kirona were selected by Balfour Beatty to enable improvements in two key areas of their Gas and Water business; Purge & Relight and Reinstatement. For the Purge & Relight business they set out to streamline the process of raising work by having jobs created by the operatives in the field. Using Kirona’s Job Manager Mobile software, the operatives raise the requirement for a Purge and Relight Job from site, which is immediately visible to their back office team who interface with the Job Manager Control Centre. Kirona’s Dynamic Resource Scheduling application ensures that the requirements of each job are met in accordance with their SLAs.
Kirona have also delivered a solution which not only replaces their legacy systems, but brings the best of Mobile Working and Scheduling technologies to the delivery of their Reinstatement business. The introduction of a fully integrated Work Management and Scheduling solution is set to bring the back office team much closer to the mobile workforce who are armed with Kirona’s Job Manger mobile to guide the delivery of their work. DRS enables us to ensure each task within a line of Reinstatement is fulfilled in time and in sequence of any related or dependant activity.
"We worked closely with the Balfour Beatty Business to understand their requirements, and then deliver a fully integrated solution that is both flexible and scalable."
