Material Deliveries to Projects

  • Software as a SaaS
  • Versatile but easy to use
  • Scalable

Materials represent the largest expense in capital projects, with substantial investment projects having even hundreds of suppliers. Purchase order and delivery information is often transferred manually by emails, Excel spreadsheets and phone calls within the project network. A vast amount parts and equipment are sent to a remote construction site from all over the world. Expediting is labour intensive and highly dependent on individuals, as information about a delivery might only be known to a small handful of people. This leads to situations where no-one knows where the goods are and limited resources are too often used to track the lost products. Large trucks queue to drop of deliveries at the construction site and thousands of containers are stored on open air to wait unloading and parts assembly.   

The Material Handling System (MHS) has been developed to resolve these issues. MHS is modern tool for managing material deliveries in capital projects. It covers the whole logistic chain from procurement to site installations. The software has been developed for project managers, project engineers, material suppliers, forwarders and project warehouse managers. The system is cloud-based and doesn’t require any software installations. MHS can be used on desktop and mobile-devices and it is equipped with QR-code and RFID-tagging capabilities for automatic product recognition. 

Improved efficiency. When all the parties involved in the project have access to real-time data on the materials in the project network, deviations are detected on time and corrective measures can be taken at the right time to ensure the construction deadline isn’t compromised.

Users say that the system is flexible, easy-to-use and intuitive. It includes all functionalities and information needed for efficient materials management.

The Material Handling System has been in use in international capital projects since 2003. The features of the software have been developed with the latest technologies based on collaboration with leading Finnish heavy industry companies.
