Development of our new ToolKit CS™ product is on track. The signs are looking very good and the evidence is mounting too! We recently started another of our ‘large projects’ for the implementation of a Construction Design and Management solution. This time, it is across the many departments in a large London based authority. Helped by our partner, Callsafe, CDM training of the pilot group is well under way. Implementation of the database across a large number of working teams is going well and providing tangible benefits for the customer. CDM compliance is now an auditable entity within the organisation; those managers that need to know, are now able to retrieve CDM documentation and progress reports ‘on demand’ and electronically. Our CDM ToolKit™ training has led the way in prescribing the method for that.
As asbestos deaths continue to rise above the rate of deaths on the road in the UK, we are stepping closer to new legislation to help manage this terrible cause of disease. Our Asbestos ToolKit Compliance System will be the first full release of the new ToolKit CS™ product and will be remodeled from the Asbestos ToolKit Lite product available now for standalone databases. Already in MDHS 100 format, the application software is about to be modified to account for the feedback we continue to receive from our customers all over the UK. The new release has already created some significant interest amongst our corporate customers looking for a multi-site multi-user compliance system running on a large database engine. Our initial version will be SQL based with web-enabled intranet options as a follow on.
The next Construction Industry Seminar will be held on 11th April 2002 in Milton Keynes. This is our ‘in-house’ seminar for customers and other interested parties who want to meet with like minded attendees. It is an opportunity to share in how we and our partners are continuing to provide focussed IT solutions for Health & Safety issues in the industry.
We are currently finalising our agenda for the event which already looks very interesting. We have confirmed that our speakers will include a representative from the HSE to discuss the forthcoming Asbestos Regulations, a H&S news update from Mouchel Consulting, a case study about project management from Pcubed and, of course, a preview of our ToolKit CS™ product.
This is likely to be another well attended seminar with some of the key players from our chosen sector both taking part and attending the event. Please make sure you are available by making a note in your diary now. Full details of the event with a registration form will be in our next newsletter; so make sure you are on the list!
Our customer visit programme is underway. We are achieving targeted meetings with key strategic directors and managers across our wide customer base. Our objectives are to work with our customers to see how we can enhance their position in the management of health & safety with our now fully audited compliance solution. If you have not yet responded to our invitation for a meeting, this would be a good time to contact us.
We are continuing our series of open training sessions for CDM ToolKit™ users at our Leighton Buzzard headquarters on:

Folowing on from last month - how to use version control within Print Preview.
When you are ready to print or save a document to file, try this;
From within Print Preview, you have the option to save a copy of your document to the 'Printed Documents' folder. This folder is on the tree for the selected project. Alternatively, if you are in a non-project document, you will find the folder under Tools.
Having saved your copy, this 'read only' image of the document will be stored for you to use as a non-editable version control copy. You can look back at anytime to see what was actually printed, and then reprint that version as required. Unwanted documents can be deleted, but their contents can never be edited.
