Bloor Homes drives nation-wide transparency and efficiency across 80 sites

Bloor Homes is one of the UK’s largest, family-run, house-builders, with operations in seven regions around the country. With thousands of home plots to manage, spread across up to 80 sites at any time, it needed both transparency and confidence in the accuracy of its progress information from across the business.

It has chosen Powerproject coupled with Site Progress Mobile for that, specifically with the goal of achieving tight integration with its existing Eque2 ERP financials. A custom integration and close working relationship with Elecosoft delivered on that aim. The benefits have included significant administrative time savings, planning efficiencies and reporting accuracies, and helped the company to hit a record level of homes delivered.

Whenever a company decides it is time to shake up and improve a fundamental process with new software, selecting that solution carefully is essential. So, when Bloor Homes realised it needed to significantly change its programme and process management, it evaluated its options very carefully. The company had previously used Project Commander to run each of its housing development projects individually.

The desire from the top for better transparency and visibility across the business is now being fulfilled with the help of Powerproject. Bloor Homes now has 36 standalone Powerproject licences and four network licences, as well as 100 Site Progress Mobile licences. Construction directors in each of its seven regions are trained on and using the software, as are several contracts managers. Site Progress Mobile is also being used by site managers on all sites across the country.

The significantly easier progress reporting and management that was enabled by coupling Powerproject and its Site Progress Mobile app was a welcome revelation: “The introduction of Site Progress Mobile’s field data capture ability was a massive bonus, saving time across the group.”
