Companies operating in the in Highways Maintenance sector are under increasing pressure to demonstrate best value by providing a quality service, on time and within budget.
Term Maintenance Contracts are notorious for generating large volumes of paper transactions, often resulting in time-consuming manual processes and the re-keying of data between numerous systems. Causeway Maintenance Management, a module of Causeway Project Accounting, has been specifically developed to offer detailed works order management and financial control of term maintenance contracts.
Causeway Maintenance Management electronically links contractors and clients for the purpose of managing the business processes associated with asset management and maintenance. Through integration with clients’ asset management systems, Causeway Maintenance Management electronically imports defects allowing the creation of works orders and estimates for electronic transfer to contractors.
Once received, contractors are able to allocate works orders to depots, supervisors and then gangs, consisting of either direct labour, subcontractors or a mixture of the two. Once defects are completed, dates and times are captured and can be electronically transferred to the client for approval.
Measures are entered against works orders and again can be electronically submitted to the client for approval, clearly identifying financial discrepancies between works requested by the client and works completed by the contractor.
Monthly valuations are automatically generated and include all interim and completed works. Causeway Maintenance Management facilitates the electronic transfer of applications for payment from contractor to client and approved payments from client to contractor.
As works orders progress through their life cycle within the system, Causeway Maintenance Management automatically tracks their status from creation to completion. A simple yet powerful report writer, available to both client and contractor, allows user-definable performance reporting across the project monitoring performance by status, location and budget codes as well as your contract specific KPI’s.
Causeway Maintenance Management can be used as a ‘stand alone’ module, however when used in conjunction with Causeway Project Accounting, the combined solution facilitates accurate cost and value analysis of defects, activities, gangs, works orders, schemes and projects.
In summary, Causeway Maintenance Management allows you and your client to proactively monitor project performance, work smarter, reduce cost and ultimately increase the profitability of your projects.
