Type: Industry Activity of partner: Facilities management or water hygiene consultant Specific role of partner sought: Implementing of the software solution with adaptation support to local requirements from the UK company, via commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Description

It is still common practice in the legionella/water hygiene sector to try to maintain and prove compliance via the use of paper record keeping. This is not only inefficient and prone to gaps/input error but is also difficult, if not impossible, to analyse the data into any meaningful information, such as basic trend reports. Where operators recognise the requirement for a software solution to record the outcome of works activity or hazards identified they are often let down by investing in expensive CaFM solutions where emphasis is on the task allocation without the understanding and nuance of health and safety compliance, and they still end up with gaps in their system. This UK company has developed an established and proven step-forward with their software solution. The system enables the user to track the status of all scheduled and un-scheduled tasks, review up-to-date water risk assessments, reflect on specific ‘written schemes' and strategically monitor a planned preventative maintenance schedule and key performance indicators. The user is able to retrieve any data that is produced as a result of activities on the contract such as certificates, analysis reports, water risk assessments, and job sheets. It enables complete record keeping and audit trail on all works activity and is an aid to contract decision making by analysing data to reduce risks for both the building owners and operational facilities management providers. Most importantly it communicates the identification of any hazards, for example positive bacterial samples or faulty system assets, to key stakeholders in real-time. The management system is also used for keeping and conserving job information, task allocation and completion, reporting all aspects of contracts, including schematics, and transmitting reports. They are seeking facilities management or water hygiene specialist providers to adopt the solution via commercial agreement with technical assistance - the UK company can adapt the system to meet local compliance requirements.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
