Scaffold Management System
Brock's Scaffold Management System (SMS), designed to improve scaffold utilization and on-site management, reduces scaffold expense and improves response time in meeting customer’s scaffolding needs. As a management tool, SMS provides data on inventory status, scaffold utilization and age, GPS locations, ownership, and cost tracking that allow facilities to reduce scaffolding expense and Brock to more efficiently respond to the facilities’ scaffolding needs. In addition, customers can verify status of their scaffolds, or requests, by use of a Web Portal that provides a direct interface with SMS.
Brock’s SMS utilizes Quick Response (QR) codes to communicate information on scaffolds, readily available at the scaffold access point with any smart device with a QR Reader app. The Scaffold Tag information includes PO #, WO #, Priority, Customer Requester, purpose of the scaffold, and Build Date. QR codes are also used to set the location of scaffold builds with GPS coordinates, which are then added to the Scaffold record in the Brock proprietary scaffold inventory management software. The mapping data is used by customers as well as Brock supervision and inspectors, allowing the scaffolds to be ‘seen’ on Google Maps or Google Earth.
