Industry recognises Banyards Insite as Product Innovation of the Year
We are delighted to announce Banyards Insite, our custom built, web-based, commissioning tracking portal won the product innovation category at this year’s Commissioning Specialist Association award ceremony, beating some very stiff competition!
As a Building Services Consultancy undertaking Commissioning Management and Client Verification, we felt the need to have a bespoke web-based portal that can provide our clients with live and accurate reporting on commissioning status and programme progress. Our research found our clients wanted simplicity and ease of clear reporting so they could see in real-time where the commissioning process is at.
We also wanted a system that standardised and regulated the ways we report across all our projects from a quality assurance perspective. Our operation managers needed a system that provided them with direct and instant access for monitoring their own performance and projects.
‘Banyards Insite’ provides our clients with friendly graphical information and system / asset tracking pages via web access from the Microsoft platform enabling real-time review of commissioning progress.
We use summary graphs for commissioning progress, documentation progress and witnessing progress. Summary graphs are complemented by tabled tracking schedules covering all MEP systems and assets. The graphics and widgets can be changed to make the system bespoke to a client’s requirements. And we generate commissioning programme progress “S” curves from the project commissioning programme progress droplines, showing actual progress against planned and for predicting what progress targets should look like for project completion. This means there is no longer any need for our clients to wait for progress updates to be emailed out.
There are hyperlinks in Insite pages to Banyards SharePoint for access to copies of all commissioning documentation relating to the tracking schedules, method statements, commissioning reports and handover documents. And each project can be shared with multiple users and can also be used by ongoing FM teams for post occupancy reporting and information.
