Case Study: Focus Group Logistics

James Copperwait from Focus Group Logistics has been making use of Zone Manager to assist in the management of large-scale construction projects for a number of years and says that, by using Zone Manager, he and his team have benefited from better management of site congestion and their ability to better manage their planning function.

Focus Group Logistics handle construction projects with budgets up to £300million. With projects of these scales even the slightest slippage in costs or scheduling can have huge knock on consequences. It’s for that reason that the team at Focus rely on Zone Manager to support these projects with delivery management and site contractor information.

James says that his long-standing relationship with Zone Manager is a real asset when it comes to making the most of the tool.

Zone Manager’s development team have worked with James and his team to co-develop additional bespoke bolt-ons that tailor Zone Manager to further support the unique needs of Focus’ projects.

With people across the Focus team using Zone Manager in their day-to day roles James explains that the flexibility of the tool to work well across desktop and mobile devices is crucial to how easy it is to implement on new projects.

James describes Zone Manager as

“Clever kit which takes the old school whiteboard approach to project management into the modern day and utilises cutting edge technology to support today’s demanding construction projects.”
