SwIMS is an intuitive and easy to use system that enables all jobs and associated tasks to be effectively and efficiently managed from start to end. It can manage multiple contracts, different works streams, planned works and emergency works.
Tasks can be managed intelligently, improving the management of resources and time taken to complete works.
Teams are to benefit from real time updates, improving communication and providing full job data including photos, geotags and key job history.
Real time updates enable a faster and more efficient workflow at all stages of a job.
SwIMS also includes specific auditing tools for in progress and post job checks – ensuring quality and compliance.
Full job history data is captured throughout the works management process, enabling better management of liabilities and valuable reports for ongoing assessment of productivity and performance, budgeting and planning.
We have created a intuitive system with bespoke modules designed for your street works and utilities contract needs.
SwIMS is defined by its core system tools and functions which represent key roles and responsibilities within the utilities industry for works management. The four main tools are Planning, Scheduling, Job Management and Reporting and these include a wide range of functions. The SwIMS core system can operate with or without the SwIMS Mobile Application which is available as a module, along with other additional modules that can be licensed to provide additional system capabilities. A summary of the tools and modules is provided. More detail is available in our product brochure which can be downloaded.

From first receipt of job data, our software starts to capture and organise information. Using initial client data feeds to identify specific tasks associated with a job and categorises them, providing an indispensable set of tools for the planners and schedulers to use.
The scheduling tools are designed to sequentially manage every aspect of a job from initial task allocation through to completion.

As the software is highly configurable to cover a range of different contracts; schedulers can access and manage all work streams and can allocate tasks from their scheduling screen. It is easy to see all tasks available for allocated and also the status of those already allocated. Each task includes icons and colour codes to help prioritise and manage risk, monitoring task completion throughout the day.
