Case Study: Duffy Contract Services

Duffy Contract Services have been utilising Zone Manager on a range of projects for several years now and continue to reap the benefits that this flexible tool has to offer.

From office refurbishments to multi-million pound external developments such as executive homes in Duxbridge and state of the art medical facilities, the management at Duffy’s say the efficiencies and benefits derived from the use of Zone Manager come in by the spadesful.

Duffy’s Logistics Managers cite the leading benefits of Zone Manager as; safety, congestion management, time saving, resource planning and clear up reporting.

Zone Manager support project managers, construction managers and the site workforce alike allowing them all to view the same live information. This means that equipment, like cranes and forklifts, are in the right place at the right time and no time is lost.

Using Zone Manager on mobile tablets supports traffic marshals on site, providing instant visibility of scheduled authorised deliveries. Marshals can then quickly process these deliveries and flag missing deliveries.

The crucial matter of site safety is well supported by the insights the tool provides. Being able to plan the location of site personnel and manage any requirements to barrier off areas when equipment and deliveries are expected keeps sites running smoothly and safely.

On top of that, the ability to live report on site tidiness and clear up areas supports transparency of issues around a site and means clear ups can be managed in a timely manner before they inconvenience, or delay, ongoing work.

Managers at Duffy’s have concluded that the cost savings of using Zone Manager are clear to see given that its use greatly reduces the strains on project management teams and frees up resource for other project priorities.
