5 reasons why you should gift your business some fire risk management software this Christmas

17 December 2021

Fire risk management software can revolutionise how you complete fire risk assessments, allocate jobs, prioritise and complete actions. Here are our top 5 reasons why fire safety software may well be the best gift you could buy for your business this Christmas.

1. Better communication and coordination

Fire risk management software is a surefire way to streamline communications between you, your assessors, and your clients.

Any business owner knows that managing employees in the field can be difficult, but field service software can help with this significantly. Fire safety software such as Aurora has a dashboard which provides a global view of all your fire safety assessors and their workloads, allowing you to view in-progress and overdue assessments. The assessor/auditor dashboard allows you to see at glance the number of assessments and audits assigned to each individual and where deadlines for completion are overdue.

And it’s not only communications between the office and assessors that can benefit from using this type of software. The software allows the fire risk assessment process to be managed in one place by assessors and clients too, meaning that communications with clients also become more transparent and streamlined. 

2.Happy clients

Surely this is what everyone wants for Christmas- happy clients!

Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) are an essential part of health and safety in the workplace, and comprise a detailed examination of the building in order to identify any potential risks, as well as the necessary actions to keep people safe.

Good fire safety software should be user-friendly for the client and should take the stress out of FSA. Clients should be able to holistically manage their property portfolio and actively document remedial action taken against findings highlighted in the FRA. Features such as interactive plan and photo features can assist the assessor in completing the FRA and pinpointing key items for the client’s attention.

Some fire risk assessment software will allow clients to log in to the system and assign actions from the FRA to internal or external contractors, allowing them a full audit trail. Furthermore, a client dashboard gives an overall view of all fire risk assessment actions/assessments completed and outstanding.

Fire risk assessment software should help a client conduct and manage Fire Risk Assessments with ease and accuracy, ensuring that their workplace is as safe as possible.

3.Operating in real time

Fire risk assessment software creates a real-time link between fire risk assessors and client systems, meaning that any new FRA actions are uploaded automatically. This allows the client to maximise the available time to complete their actions from the FRA. The software also ensures that a client has access to the full FRA at the earliest opportunity, and helps them to understand the key risks across their portfolio. The fact that everything is immediate and in real-time helps to save valuable time when it comes to actioning points from the FRA.

Some fire safety software also allows clients to use a dashboard to re-allocate and distribute FRA work, and will also automatically send emails when work is allocated, reducing admin time.

Fire risk management software can also save time for assessors out in the field. For example, if an assessor needs to access historical customer data on the job, they can look it up in their app, rather than calling the office for the information. The real-time nature of the software speeds up and streamlines numerous processes.

4. Quick and Accurate

Fire risk assessment software can revolutionise the way fire risk assessments are conducted, allowing assessors to perform on-site assessments quickly and accurately.

Some fire risk assessment software, such as Aurora, offer a combination of custom and bespoke templates. The custom built PAS79-based templates mean you can get started quickly and easily, or alternatively, it is simple to create bespoke templates in the template editor should you need to.

Aurora is also compatible on any device: it is a web-based app which means assessments can be completed on any device, making the assessment end-to-end process 80% more efficient.

Another of Aurora’s efficient features is that you can tag a fire risk assessment finding to a floorplan to show the precise location and finding image to the client.

Fire risk assessment software really will give your business the advantage when it comes to ease, accuracy, and speed.

5. Better for business

Of course, as a business owner you need to consider your bottom line, and this is where fire risk assessment software can really come into its own. 

Fire risk assessment software can help fire protection companies to consolidate field and office activity into one tool, which in turn promotes greater accuracy in cost analysis, data refinement, and decision making.

The software makes it possible for your business to go properly mobile, and respond to orders and requests in real-time. It helps to streamline your scheduling, billing, and your business’s efficiency and cost management, all of which can have a positive impact on your bottom line.

So give your business a treat this Christmas and invest in some fire risk assessment software. We guarantee you will thank yourself for it this time next year!
