Congrid and Derigo co-operate to achieve synergies in occupational safety management
The ICT service providers Congrid and Derigo have launched a cooperation initiative. The goal of the cooperation is to promote the further development of the sector by improving the overall quality and occupational safety management at all levels from the construction site to the top management.
The solution created by these two Finnish companies promotes the quality management processes in the construction sector by offering a quality and safety reporting view tailored according to the sector’s needs. The solution combines Derigo’s Pro3 project management tool and the Congrid systems through open interfaces.
The traditional construction sector has moved on to a phase where operating processes are being digitalised rapidly with the aid of modern ICT solutions. Congrid and Derigo want to serve the sector by creating new solution models to help companies in internationalisation.
“The digitalisation of the sector enables the systematic collection of information from different sources to support decision-making. The problem is that information is fragmented into separate systems. This is where we and Derigo want to help. Our cooperation provides our customers with a unique overall system for quality and safety management,” says Congrid’s CEO Timo Makkonen.
The end user benefits yielded by the cooperation include improved occupational safety and customer satisfaction, better cost efficiency and data-driven management. When up-to-date information is available and in an easily understandable format, the safety levels of different locations and construction sites can be compared. This makes it possible to address deviations immediately and, as a result, enhance the transparency of situation information at all levels.
“For years, we have been involved in some cooperation, sharing some of our customer base, so it is a natural option to further deepen this cooperation in order to offer our customers an even more comprehensive project digitalisation system. The cooperation also opens up new opportunities to grow international business in both companies,” says Derigo’s CEO Jukka Vornanen.
The construction software company Congrid has developed a digital platform for quality and occupational safety management and supervision on construction sites. The company, founded by a group of construction professionals in 2013, promotes the data-driven quality management of construction projects, which allows different parties to understand what has been built and why. Derigo is an expert company specialising in information management and process development.
It offers digital solutions for the smooth deployment and practical implementation of operating models throughout the organisation. The company’s main product, the Pro3 system, provides its users with an electronic dashboard for project execution, with the goal of integrating the company’s procedures, documents and background systems into a functional whole.
