Global property and construction consultancy, Gleeds, has successfully used Kykloud technology to conduct a detailed 6 Facet Survey on behalf of Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
Gleeds’ specialist healthcare team works with NHS Trusts across the UK to look at ways of extracting greater efficiencies from their property portfolios in order to meet increased budget pressures and is now using Kykloud as part of its targeted approach.
Kykloud was used as part of a project to conduct detailed 6 facet surveys of 50 health centres across Birmingham. Kykloud mobile technology enabled Gleeds’ in-house team of surveyors to conduct detailed surveys more quickly and efficiently and allowed them to produce client ready reports with far less administrative input.
Roger Pulham, Head of Healthcare at Gleeds said:
“The rapidly changing nature of healthcare services means we must help our clients find ever-more commercially driven solutions — both in the short and long-term.”
Having significant experience in both public and independent healthcare sectors, Gleeds is well placed to promote more effective ways of developing, reviewing or restructuring capital improvement program strategy.
Roger added: “Kykloud formed a key part of our client solution as it allowed us to obtain an accurate and up to date picture of our client’s entire estate quickly and efficiently. With the automated mobile software our surveyors could use their iPads to extract detailed information room by room which was then uploaded on to one single portal to create reports both of individual sites and across the entire property portfolio.
“Kykloud made it easy for our surveyors to capture the required data and create user friendly reports; it helped us to create a holistic picture of the condition of the estate, allowing us to look at how best to increase efficiencies portfolio wide.
“Without doubt it reduced the amount of time we would have usually spent on site and provided us with quality data in a format that we required.”
