"Mouchel, the major consulting engineering group, and Ai Solutions, developers of the CDM ToolKit™ 2000 software, have teamed together to provide a new e-commerce service for everyone involved in the HSE's Construction (Design & Management) Regulations. The new service will use a newly developed version of the CDM ToolKit™ currently installed throughout the UK with many local authorities, large corporates including Mouchel and other organisations providing planning supervisory services. The new service will be delivered through a new company, cdmUK.com which will 'go live' on 2nd October 2000 following a month of testing and evaluation by Mouchel, Ai Solutions and selected customers.
There will be 4 key elements to the new service:
Further information is available from the online site cdmUK.com."
As many of our customers know, we have been finalising our plans for our new online trading company for some months now. What we can now reveal is our new partnership with Mouchel, the major consulting engineering group. The Press Release above is our first 'public' announcement and will be backed up with publicity material specially written for the launch as it becomes available through our marketing partners.
I would like to add a personal note to say how excited we are at Ai Solutions, that after a very long period of software development and consultation with a number of our key customers including Mouchel, we can finally get the new venture under way.
Our aim is to provide all the services that our customers need on-line in the first instance. The familiar and very successful CDM ToolKit 2000 product has been expanded with an e-commerce Option to allow customers to link their projects to the web based CDM ToolKit online automatically. This will allow their customers to view project details and documents via their web browsers, and to download copies of those documents should they wish to do so.
The DocUstore facility will allow long-term storage of all those files that you need to keep available for your projects in a store that will be accessible by a number of references including by postcode. We have the ability to become 'the' document store on-line for any project document!
Ai Solutions and Mouchel will be making presentations about each of the cdmUK.com key elements at our next User Forum and would like to see representatives from all our customers there. Please email us for a registration form or register online as soon as possible please. This will be the main launching platform for cdmUK.com to our customers so please attend if you possibly can.
The Working Well Together London Conference takes place in this year's European Week for Safety & Health on 17th and 18th October. Mouchel will be promoting their new partnership arrangements with cdmUK.com at this event by sponsoring a new award for 'Communications' in the UK construction industry.
