With Spring just around the corner we have to remind ourselves that Easter is at the end of the month! We have much to tell you about and new product to deliver. Our Construction Industry Seminar is an excellent opportunity to get to know what we are all up to and help you facilitate all those legislative changes that the HSE are encouraging you implement.
Our next Construction Industry Seminar is scheduled for 11 April in Milton Keynes. This is an open seminar for all industry professionals including, but not limited to, our ToolKit™ users. We continue to look for interesting topics to present to our attendees and believe that the outline below will be of interest to a wide audience. We hope you agree and can join us. Please register now, using the form provided, so that we can ensure you a place.
Our Spring customer briefing programme is under way with presentations to our major customers on our new strategic direction for integrated databases and applications. This is a major opportunity for users and their management teams to review and redefine the direction they need to take to ensure compliance to health & safety law. Our plans to facilitate this are in place and we welcome the opportunity to present our case along with our users’ requirements to their corporate teams. Please contact us if you feel we can help you in this important area.
We often hear from our customers that they wish their contractors / sub contractors could use our software as well. They want to use the inbuilt routines to import and export project documents and information including contact list, messaging and letters. Well now they can!
ToolKit™ licensees with more than 1 concurrent license are being offered additional licenses for contractors on a maintenance only basis. For £299 plus VAT, nominated contractors can have free use of our software including free access to our cdmuk.com web site for the next 12 months.
Case studies are always of interest to show would be users how others have benefited from system installations. The latest paper from Seeboard is of particular interest in that it reviews the process that has now taken place over many months and led to some really great results. See the following link for a copy now: Seeboard Power Networks Case Study
Project management continues to bring a focus to our development activities with more and more customers wanting to know about our integration plans for MS Project and ToolKit CS™. We are collating some information for that development with our partner Pcubed and ask that if this is an area of interest to you, you give us a call please.
We thought you might be interested to note the content of the following single page document forwarded to us recently by a respected planning supervisor and customer. The document was received by the planning supervisor in response to his request for a copy of the contractors Health & Safety Plan.
We leave you to draw your own conclusions and send us comments if you have any!
With construction industry fatal injuries continuing to rise sharply since 1998 on a worsening trend, the HSE have provided some advice and guidance on their current priorities to improve matters. We have provided a copy of their leaflet for your information.
Please see the recent Asbestos Campaign News for more information.
Have you ever had a problem getting documents to fit on pages easily, and ended up spending time trying to put carriage returns and page breaks into your sections? The ToolKit™ uses the 'Section Split' function in Print Preview to make this easier for you.
When previewing your document
If a previous section finishes 80% or more down the page, then the following test is applied;
If the next section will not fit in the remainder of the page, then the new section will start on the next page.
The 80% can be adjusted to suit the user's requirements.
We are continuing our series of open training sessions for CDM ToolKit™ users at our Leighton Buzzard headquarters. The date for our next session is Tuesday 26th March 2002 at 2:30 – 4:30pm. Places are strictly limited, so please call us if you are able to take up this offer.
