Smartsheet Solution for LEV Checklist Dashboard

Customer: EMCOR UK

EMCOR UK is the country’s leading authority in high-performance, sustainable integrated facilities and workplace management delivering service and innovation to their clients.

Operating with a track record of success in some of the most complex and regulated workplaces in the UK – delivering services to industry sectors including life sciences, defence, nuclear, hi-tech manufacturing and central government.

The Challenge

Working in partnership with a key pharma client to deliver an App solution for a weekly check to all LEV assets in order to increase visibility and compliance of over 1200 assets, in real

time. The client required increased checks with accessible, auditable data to allow them to understand their asset base more comprehensively going forward. Their current format, held within their CMMS system, has limited reporting functionality and does not allow any analysis of key data such as failure by fault type or by manufacturer or highest use by location.

The Smartsheet Solution

After analysing the current data collection and understanding the additional data points required in building the weekly schedule, a Smartsheet and AppSheet solution was created to collect and hold inspection data for all LEV checks across all sites. AppSheet forms are used to update the LEV asset data with the inspection results, which then feeds to a set of Smarter Dashboards driven by data held in Smartsheet.

The dashboards give drill down capability to individual sites, allowing targeted analysis on risk data, inspection progress and failure statistics on assets.
