Business leaders want to understand how much they spend running their buildings. For extensive property portfolios, visibility of business-critical performance is no mean feat; but visibility of the performance of suppliers is what our business intelligence reporting brings.
At Atkins, we have the right mix of technical and accounting performance-specialist expertise which not only demonstrates past and current performance, but shows vital return on investment information.
Whether it’s to support a change process, business case or simply to gain better understanding of what’s happening in a particular area of your estate, Atkins’ business intelligence reporting (BI) team – a specialist technical team of IT developers – provides a bespoke reporting and information service to help our clients make better-informed decisions.
Our performance management systems allow you to see and understand performance of key processes and activities across your estate, putting you in control of your facilities management (FM) operations so that you can take steps to improve them where necessary.
To monitor, translate and understand data, the experts in our BI team use three key systems:
- Atkins Intelligence (Ai), our bespoke web-based asset and work management system into which all data is fed
- Our operational real-time reporting tool Actuate
- Industry-leading software Cognos BI for producing dashboard reports, which features a self-service reporting function to give you ad hoc, as well as scheduled reports
Detailed analysis enables diverse comparisons to be made, and data-mining gives access to very specific information including performance reports, balanced scorecards, dashboard and cost/finance reports - all at the touch of a button.
Our clients access reports by simply logging onto Atkins Intelligence via email or web browser and, should the need arise; our helpdesk is only a telephone call away.
Ultimately, we monitor performance, identify trends, provide transparency and present this information in a digestible form, so you can ensure that your property suppliers – including Atkins – comply with their service level agreements.
