The Queen’s Award for Enterprise
For the second time in five years, we’ve won one of the country’s most prestigious and respected business honours – the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation
Following our success five years ago in winning our inaugural Queen’s Award, this time our innovative work in developing and launching our Gateway Compliance Matrix resource management system caught the judging panel’s eye.
For the uninitiated, the platform is unique in that it allows us to more accurately target and compete for contracts by automatically assessing the risk, management and compliance obligations for each project.
Jason Knights, Managing Director, Ground Control, comments:
Using the system allows us to target the right mix of work and to continually and accurately assess and manage the risk. It also allows our customers to see how we safely and efficiently control and manage complex compliance records at scale.
The platform is already proving its worth and played a central role in helping us win a complex, long-term contract with National Grid. Its use eliminated the need for lengthy consultations with senior management and instead, the complex compliance and training requirements were accurately assessed, cross-referenced and authorised in a matter of hours – rather than days.
The technology delivers another key advantage – a wider distribution of knowledge and decision-making. The use of the rules-based system will enable authorised experts from across the company to assess, act and make timely decisions whilst managing risk.
“It’s a classic ‘win-win’ situation’,” said Jason Knights:
