Blog: Featured finalist - Multiplex and Profinda

10 May 2018

Digital Construction

Number of staff: Profinda 40

Company turnover: £5 million - Profinda

Multiplex has a vast range of skills across the business, with 1200 staff nationwide, some of these skills may not have yet been discovered. Multiplex wanted to prevent ‘silo’ operations and required a system that would not only connect all staff, regardless of where they were working, but also to track their different skills and match them to projects they were best suited to. Profinda offered a solution to the skills challenges faced by Multiplex. 

By creating a complete digital overview of all talent within the company, anyone within Multiplex can now discover colleagues that could help with specific projects allowing employees the opportunity to advance their career in a different field or to gain new experiences. In this way, Multiplex has been able to optimise its project teams, considering different talents, working styles and who would work best with the many stakeholders involved in the project. 

Within 4 weeks of the launch, Profinda had achieved 100% adoption across Multiplex, not only within HQ but on site and Multiplex has reduced the average time spent looking for help on projects to under 20 minutes.

The winner in the Digital Construction category at the Constructing Excellence SECBE awards will be announced at the awards ceremony and gala dinner on the 28th of June at the Royal Lancaster London. For more information or to book tickets click here.
