Interview with Mr. Laurent Rabine, construction manager at Bat’Immo concept, BatiScript user
Bat’Immo concept is a company specialising in the construction management of reinforced concrete.
Q | To begin, could you present your position and the missions that fall to you?
Mr Rabine said “my job as construction manager for Bat’Immo concept is to ensure that work is carried out in accordance with drawings, materials and regulatory requirements.
In particular, I supervise construction management, quality control and so on…
Q | What motivated your search for a new digital solution?
Rabine went on to say “I started looking for a new solution because I wanted to save time in my daily tasks. I also wanted to make it easier to follow-up on works onsite, reduce the amount of paper involved and need to handle site documents.”
Q | How did you discover Script&Go and its construction management software?
He described how “in 2012, I came across an article in the press about Script&Go and its BatiScript construction management software. The article talked about Lamotte Group and the Giboire Group who were users of this solution and extremely satisfied with it. So I got in touch with the Script&Go sales team and started my trial period. The result was very positive and erased our doubts about the use of a tablet in our processes
Q | You have chosen to use BatiScript software in your organisation to answer precisely what needs?
He divulged that “Bat’Immo concept was looking for a way to optimise it’s working time: whether it was during defect survey or in report writing tasks. It lacked a simple tool to explain the defects noted to project partners.
I use the “Defect Management” modules on a daily basis to identify defects onsite.
With the help of the “Drawing Management” module, I can easily find all site drawings in an organised way.”
Q | What inspires you in BatiScript compared to other solutions on the market?
Rabine also said “I have not made any comparison with other software because I was quickly convinced of the merits of BatiScript itself. The simplicity and performance of the solution were instrumental in my choice.
The “Reports” module allows clear reports to be produced with the list of defects and associated drawings showing defect locations.
The “Document Management” module allows me to get rid of paper.”
Exchange and proximity to the customer are the main strengths of BatiScript’s developers, Script&Go. As soon as we have a request, we send it to the technical department which answers us quickly by telephone. This personalised customer contact is very important to us.
Q | How has the use of the BatiScript software and tablet changed how you work?
Rabine added that “using a mobile tool such as BatiScript for monitoring my construction site is a major advantage for my competitors: I save time and have simplified communication with my partners.
For example, I often use the photo editing tool to easily explain the various defects that I find on my site. These photos then appear in the various reports that I address directly to each company.”
Q | What are the main advantages that BatiScript brings you?
Finally, he said, “From now on, we go to the site with our hands in our pockets.” With BatiScript, there is no need for paper: everything is in the software.
We also saved 30% of our time for carrying out defect management onsite, which is important to note, when we know that “time is money.”
The “Handover/Warranty” module is particularly important to me as it allows me to track defects detected by a customer during the entire warranty period, after delivery. With a tool as practical as BatiScript, my site monitoring is now faster.
In summary, BatiScript is saving me time and simplifies communication.”
