5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Fire Risk Assessment Software

17 July 2020

When it comes to choosing fire risk assessment software, there are a range of options available, and it’s essential that you choose the right solution for your organisation. Choosing the right option of course requires careful consideration. 

With this in mind, we’ve identified 5 key points for you to think about before making a decision on fire risk assessment software…

Refine your requirements

Make sure that you dig a little deeper when choosing fire risk assessment software. Really consider exactly what your organisation needs from the software. As this will help to increase productivity, decrease your costs and ensure better overall efficiency within your business. 

Take the time to check whether or not the organisation providing the software is credible. Check their experience, expertise and make sure they have a high technical capability. It’s also important to check that the software has all the features you need, and you could even go a step further and check for features you will want going forward. 

Make use of a demo

The organisations providing the software will likely have options for a demo. Contacting them regarding this is a great way of testing and reviewing the applications yourself, before you decide to commit to any contracts. 

Any organisation that is confident with the software they are offering should offer you a trial, so that you can make a more informed decision. 

Ensure it’s secure

Cyber-attacks, loss of data and the threat of hackers are unfortunately always going to be factors that you need to think about. As well as assessing the organisation’s credibility and knowledge, you also need to verify that they use a trusted secure platform and have a strong commitment to protecting data.

Check it comes with training and support

It might be the case that a sudden error occurs, or you need assistance quickly, in which case there needs to be a fast and efficient support line available to you. Check that this is the case before committing. 

Ask yourself about ROI

Fire risk assessment software requires investment, and therefore it’s not always about selecting the cheapest option on there. It’s about your return on investment, and ensuring that you’re getting quality over quantity. 

If you only opt for the cheapest software, then it’s likely to be cheaply created, low-managed, and will be at far greater risk of failure.
