Consilium Technical Services is proud to present their brand-new app, The Highways Toolbox. With technology constantly updating, smart phones and tablets are day to day tools on which Consilium have created an application that can help save time, money and even the environment.
Consilium provides clients with detailed traffic management drawings, complete with QR Codes to get their clients to their desired location quickly and efficiently, the clients then download a third party QR code reader full of unnecessary adverts and features.
So Consilium set about creating a more user friendly, ad-free app. They brainstormed for months thinking what other conveniences were not available to the industry yet as part of the hunt to add additional features to their app in order to add value.
The highly innovative Highways Toolbox gives access to all the tools that used to only be available to office based staff. However, whether locating and routing marker posts on the M6 or reporting a pothole on a rural road – this app has you covered.
Some outstanding features of the Toolbox include:
SCAN YOUR QR-CODE
Consilium provides their clients with detailed plans, and additionally adds a QR Code enabling their client the navigation and guidance to their desired location. With the latest weather and real-time traffic reports, Consilium gives the user time to plan their journey, reduce congestion and lower emissions.
LOCATE MARKER POSTS
Covering various parts of the network, with future areas currently being worked on, the app gives the user the ability to route their desired location, plan their journey, reduce congestion, lower emissions and view weather conditions. It gives operatives access to marker posts which previously they couldn’t access. ”
Information is key in the industry, so with the use of the site visiting tool the user can pin point their exact location, allow them to take a photograph of the work area/ POI and fill out a report which is then sent straight to Consilium Head Office for analysis. Great for emergency jobs that need that quick turnaround!
The Toolbox test tool is perfect aid to help you prepare for future refreshers or even just grow your knowledge of the industry.
In this tool, Consilium house all relevant up to date documentation relating to the Traffic Management Industry. Whether you need to look up permitted variants of signs or study a topic you are not sure about to complete our multiple-choice test we have it.
Speaking of the Toolbox, Consilium Director Daryl Gordon told us:
“We’re really happy to launch this app and feel it’s going to be a massive hit for the TM industry. Currently, unless people are office based there is a whole host of information that they don’t have access to, or can’t get access to. Our market research found that most TM companies are working from an android platform for their paperless systems, so we have developed this app to work alongside and fit seamlessly alongside the systems they already have in place. Often this information is vital, so being able to bridge this void is a really proud moment for us as a company as we continue to innovate.”
