Interview with Mr Denis Paing, technical director at Kermarrec Promotion, Batiscript user
Kermarrec Promotion designs and realizes real estate programs (housing and offices) for individuals, companies or communities in the Greater West.
To begin, could you present your position and the missions that you have?
My job as Technical Director at Kermarrec Promotion is to organize the operational part of the worksites: from the management of punch list on the site to the pre-delivery and delivery of the property to the client. The communication aspect with the project managers and with the customer is essential: I must provide the reports that are reliable and understandable. Batiscript’s simple and clear reports are a major asset in this information transmission.
What caused you to search for a new professional solution?
We needed to save time in the management of our site and greatly reduce the use of paper that is very time-consuming and unreadable. We were looking for a simple, high-performance construction management software to interact with our stakeholders and end customers.
How did you discover Script&Go and its construction management software?
In 2013, after one and a half years of searching on the internet and comparing various construction management softwares on the market, I contacted Script&Go directly from the software website www.batiscript.com. The sales department was very responsive to my needs and I quickly made an appointment at our premises to discover the software. We wanted to test the solution with the field teams, accustomed to realizing the punch list on paper. The result was very positive and helped to remove our doubts about the use of a tablet in their process.
You have chosen to deploy the Script&Go software in your company to answer what needs precisely?
We were looking for a way to facilitate our exchanges with the prime contractors but especially with our final customers. The BatiScript solution brings us both a speed in the management of the site and a simplicity in our exchanges. With the “delivery” module, the customer easily understands the various reports submitted during the course and at the end of the work.
What inspired you in BatiScript compared to other solutions on the market?
The simplicity and performance of the solution:
- Use of pen and handwriting recognition,
- The rapid management of things on the plan,
- The proximity of the Script&Go team with a permanent exchange
All these elements have reassured me that BatiScript is the right choice for construction management software.
In addition, 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 allows me to have a clear vision on our costs and have a controlled budget.
How has the use of Script&Go’s BatiScript software and the tablet changed the way you work?
The use of the tablet and BatiScript every day was implemented naturally. My team quickly realized the ease of use of the software and the ease of generating reports on a tablet compared to the old paper format.
The module “plans management” makes all site plans available at all times in an orderly manner.
BatiScript allows us to transmit quality information to subcontractors as well as to ensure that a correction of issues on the work site thanks to the module “punch list management (OPR)“.
What are the main advantages that BatiScript brings you?
The more you use it, the more fluid it becomes!
BatiScript saves time, money but also brings clarity and credibility with our customers and subcontractors through the formatted reports. Confidence gained by our customers has also been felt notably through the punch list on site and the ability to attach photographs.
In addition, the monitoring of issues throughout the construction site, coupled with the possibility of consulting the statistics on the progress of nonconformities managed by our subcontractors this allows an optimized management of the site.
In summary, BatiScript saves time, gain in clarity and readability of our reports.
