In the Estates & Capital Developments Team at Aston University, we employ Insite for project snagging, ensuring all aspects of construction and renovation meet our standards. It’s also instrumental in cleaning performance inspections and general campus issue detection, aiding in maintaining high standards of cleanliness and safety across the campus.
While I have limited experience with other systems, Insite distinguishes itself with a straightforward and data-rich interface. This design significantly speeds up inspection completion times by making the process easier for both those who assign tasks and those who execute them on site. Its user-friendly nature ensures tasks are completed efficiently without feeling overly burdensome, contributing to overall satisfaction and productivity.
We’ve implemented Insite both internally and externally. Internally, it’s a key tool for our Cleaning and Maintenance teams, streamlining their operations and enhancing communication within these departments.Externally, we’ve been using it extensively in snagging projects, particularly with contractors. This dual approach has significantly improved our communication efficiency, ensuring smooth coordination and timely response across different teams and with external partners.
