Interview with Mr Denis Paing, technical director at Kermarrec Promotion, BatiScript user
Kermarrec Promotion designs and builds property developments (in the housing and commercial sectors) for individuals, companies and communities in Western France.
Q | To begin, could you present your position and the missions that you have?
Mr Paing explained, “my job as technical director at Kermarrec Promotion is to organise the operational part of the construction sites: from issue and defect management onsite to the pre-delivery and delivery of the property to our clients. Good communication with project managers and customers is essential: I need to provide reports that are reliable and easily understandable. Batiscript’s simple and clear reports are a major asset in information transmission.
Q | What caused you to search for a new professional software solution?
“At Kermarrec Promotion we needed to save time in our construction management processes and greatly reduce the use of paper that is an extremely time-consuming and inaccurate way of working. We were looking for a simple, high-performance construction management software to interact with project stakeholders, final customers and end users,” said Paing.
Q | How did you discover Script&Go and its construction management software?
Paing described how “in 2013, after one and a half years of searching on the internet and comparing various construction management software solutions on the market, I contacted Script&Go directly from the BatiScript website. The sales department was very responsive to my needs and I quickly made an appointment at Kermarrec Promotion’s premises to discover the software. We wanted to test the solution with the field teams, accustomed to preparing defect or snag lists on paper. The result was very positive and helped to remove our doubts about the using tablets in our processes.”
Q | You have chosen to deploy the Script&Go software in your company to answer what needs precisely?
Paing went on to say “Kermarrec Promotion were looking for a way to facilitate our exchanges not only with the prime contractors but especially with our final customers and end users. The BatiScript solution speeds up site management and simplifies our exchanges. With the “delivery” module, the customer easily understands the various reports submitted during the course of construction and on completion of the work.”
Q | What inspired you in using BatiScript compared to other solutions on the market?
Paing said that the “simplicity and performance” of the solution inspired Kermarrec Promotion including the :
- Stylus use and handwriting recognition,
- Rapid issue / defect management on drawings
- Proximity of the Script&Go team who provided a permanent exchange
He added “all these elements have reassured me that BatiScript is the right choice for construction management software. What’s more, the “service to price” ratio of the solution proposed by Script&Go was a decisive argument: the economic model of license (unlike a subscription system) and fixed maintenance fee per year allowed me to have a clear vision of the cost and have a controlled budget.”
Q | How has the use of Script&Go’s BatiScript software and the tablet changed the way you work?
Paing further explained how, “the daily use of the tablet and BatiScript was implemented naturally. My team at Kermarrec Promotion quickly appreciated the ease-of-use of the software and the ease of generating reports on a tablet compared to the old paper format. The “drawing management” module makes all site plans available at all times in an orderly manner. BatiScript allows us to send quality information to our subcontractors as well as ensure accurate issue correction of construction work thanks to the “defect management module””
Q | What are the main advantages that BatiScript brings you?
He added, “BatiScript saves time, money but also brings clarity and credibility to our customers and subcontractors through the formatted reports. Confidence gained by our customers has also been felt notably through defect lists on site through the ability to attach photographs. Beyond this, the monitoring of issues throughout the construction site, coupled with the possibility of consulting statistics of the progress of defects managed by our subcontractors optimises our construction management.”
In summary, BatiScript saves time and improves construction report clarity and readability.
