COINS - Project Update
Posted: Fri, 07 Sep 2018 08:30
Some of the current Barratt Commercial systems require disproportionate manual intervention, leading to far too much paperwork and administrative effort. The new COINS will consolidate several current systems into a single place and automate a number of processes, enabling everyone to focus on high-value activities.
This is a strategic investment in technology for Barratt, enabling people to work in a mobile, flexible fashion, exchanging dozens of sheets of paper for an iPad and creating an instant picture of a development's status. Surveyors can spend more time working with contractors, while buyers, suppliers and subcontractors should benefit from fewer invoice queries and administrative tasks – helping everyone to operate in a more efficient and effective manner.
Following successful testing, the High Rise pilot is now live in West London. Similar pilots this autumn in Housebuild will be followed by general deployment across Barratt from early 2019, as new sites are started.
