the challenge
Before integrating BuildPass, FORA faced several challenges common in the construction industry.
Inefficient OnboardingTraditional paper-based onboarding processes were time-consuming and error-prone, leading to delays in getting subcontractors and workers on-site.
Documentation ManagementManaging and tracking various documents, such as SWMS and insurance forms, was cumbersome and often resulted in data silos.
Real-time InformationThe lack of real-time data hindered the ability to make quick, informed decisions on-site, impacting overall project efficiency.
the solution
FORA adopted BuildPass to address these challenges, benefiting from its comprehensive suite of features designed to enhance construction management processes.

Document ManagementFORA utilises BuildPass's document management feature to maintain and track critical documents such as SWMS and insurance forms. This ensures all documents are easily accessible and up-to-date.
Toolboxes and SMS CommunicationRegular toolbox talks and SMS communications ensure all team members are informed and up-to-date with the latest site information and safety protocols.
Pre-starts and Site DiariesDaily pre-start meetings and site diaries are managed through BuildPass, enhancing coordination and record-keeping.
Defects and ActionsThrough the actions feature, tasks were assigned to specific team members, creating clear accountability and enabling efficient resolution. This real-time tracking and assignment system minimised delays, enhanced communication, and ensured that no defect went unresolved. As a result, FORA maintained high standards of quality and safety across all their projects, boosting overall client satisfaction and operational efficiency.
