The Causeway Scaffold Management Suite is a market leading suite of software designed for Scaffolding and Formwork contractors and hire companies. The easy to use multi-depot stock, hire and sales and contracting software is designed for businesses specifically engaged in hire and sales and/or the provision of contracting services relating to scaffolding, access, formwork, falsework, trenching & shoring.
In their activities, scaffolding and formwork contractors provide a combination of equipment, people and services as a solution to their customers, and as such require a specialist solution to manage these resources. The Causeway Suite provides a contracting business with all the tools to manage costs around equipment and labour, accurately bill based on utilisation of those resources which includes the ability to capture charges for extra hire.
A key component of the Causeway system is the integrated asset management that caters for the special nature of scaffolding, access and formwork equipment, managing items that are stocked and hired in lengths (and potentially returned to stockholding in adjusted lengths), composite lengths (i.e. fencing) or items that are made up of many components such as alloy towers, staircases, drag boxes and trenching systems.
The Suite comprises :
The account hierarchy structure facilitates segregation of revenue, associated costs and both capital investment and liability in a manner that separate revenue streams (eg., hire, sale & contracting) can either be viewed on their own or consolidated. A separate departmental hierarchy allows analysis of the above dimensions across an infrastructure of locations such as regions and depots. The system can be configured to treat separate parts of the business as separate legal entities (eg., separate contracting from hire) whilst maintaining the ease of operational use by allowing say one invoice to be part analysed to an asset and part to a speculative contract.
Contract Costing Ledger
The Contract costing module provides an organisational contract hierarchy, a resource based cost and revenue structure and an activity structure that allows interrogation and reporting along several non-conflicting lines.
This multi-depot contract invoicing module is designed to deal with
- Contract scaffold items – Erect, Dismantle, Adapt, Expenses & Extra Hire
- Housing Plots – billed on a predefined stage basis
- Call Off of a pre-scheduled measure
Integrated purchase order management from requisitioning through to order placement, GRN entry, invoice matching and ultimately supplier and resource spend analysis.
