Amicus Horizon grounds maintenance data capture project pays for itself in year one!

Data Insight (GIS) has recently completed a data capture and cleansing project with Amicus Horizon Group, one of the largest RSLs in the UK with over 28,000 homes under management across London, the South and the South East of England.

In order to let new grounds maintenance contracts it was essential that detailed, accurate and up to date ‘bills of quantities’ were prepared for use within the contract specification. Data Insight (GIS) captured, digitised and geo-coded all land and property asset data from multiple office locations and in a variety of legacy formats such as microfiche, paper maps and various electronic databases.

The result is a comprehensive and accurate record of what is owned and what should be maintained, including a single, consistent record of ownership for the whole region shown visually on up to date maps and an accurate bill of quantities for letting and managing the grounds maintenance contracts.

In addition significant cost savings have been achieved in maintaining the estate and the cost savings identified provided an immediate return on the cost of the data capture project.

Amicus Horizon and Data Insight (GIS) are now pursuing a similar approach across the rest of the group.
