Explore the key challenges businesses typically face with data capture and the solutions Ctrl Hub provides.
With Ctrl Hub data is captured and entered into the platform at the point of work, where it is then reviewed and processed in accordance with customised workflows that follow your own business requirements.
Time Wasted on Form Access
Lack of visibility as to whereabouts of paper forms, and lost time in manual transportation of forms between locations.
Ctrl Hub stores all forms electronically within the platform, accessible at any time for users to capture data. Submitted forms and their status are visible in the platform for authorised users to view and track.
Struggling with Sustainability
Paper forms and fuel transportation costs directly contravene the drive for sustainability in our work and our lives.
No paper costs, no fuel costs, Ctrl Hub supports you in your drive towards net zero.
Inputting Repetitive Information
Operatives in the field having to write in the same details on multiple paper forms when completing multiple forms on the same street or project.
Ctrl Hub provides electronic forms which can be pre-populated with information from elsewhere in the platform, such as the site or project, the task type etc. Drop down menus with pre-populated options make it quicker and easier for operatives to complete forms, saving valuable time and generating efficiency in the field.
Physical Information Issues
Illegible handwriting and rain damaged and/or torn forms causing nightmares for back office staff who have to make sense of what is written, or spend time chasing up specific confirmation from operatives who have long since forgotten.
Ctrl Hub’s digital data capture removes issues of legibility and damage to forms, with data held securely in the Ctrl Hub cloud, to be accessed and processed at any time.
Wasted Time Inputting Data
Duplication and even triplication of time when administrative staff have to manually input data from paper forms into your back office software or into an email to go to the client.
Ctrl Hub allows data to be electronically captured at the point of work, and is automatically stored in the system. Customised workflows process it in accordance with business requirements, so it is reviewed, stored and/or sent to relevant third parties as necessary.
Handwritten data - and even free text data on electronic forms - has very limited value other than the specific purpose for which that item is written.
Ctrl Hub allows electronic meta data to be stored, queried and interrogated to give valuable business insights.
Location of Information
In the unfortunate event of an accident or a regulatory investigation, it can take days (if not weeks) to locate all relevant paper forms. The administrative burden on the back office is huge.
Ctrl Hub contains a full and readily accessible log of all actions undertaken by each operative - induction, toolbox talks, risk assessments, training courses, qualifications, safety briefings - every single data capture form submitted.
Access to HAVS Information
Lack of visibility of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome exposure for individual operatives and across the business in general - scrambling to find information when it is too late and notification of a claim has been received.
Ctrl Hub provides electronic monitoring of daily HAVS exposure, takes operatives seconds to update, providing proactive, real time picture of exposure through reports and dashboard, and a complete digital record to present in the event of a claim.
The Data Capture feature integrates with other Ctrl Hub tools for maximum effectiveness.
- Forms and workflows for management of people, stored against each individual operative
- Forms and workflows for management of assets, stored against each individual vehicle or item of equipment
- Data capture forms stored against the relevant project or site
- Dashboard links directly to an operative’s own forms, or those of his/her team or organisation
- Captured data fed into reports and dashboards, and via API into other management reporting software
- Form, process and dashboard to manage HAVS exposure
