Bidcom Solution Used in £68 million Paddington Basin West End Quay Project Friday 12 January 2001 PDF Print Bidcom Ltd, a leading UK engineering, building and property e-business services provider, announces today that its web-based project management solutions will be used in the £68 million West End Quay Project. Part of the Paddington Basin Regeneration Scheme, a joint venture by Westcity, Wates, Rialto Homes and ING Real Estates, the West End Quay project will provide approximately 470 high quality residential and retail space. Bidcom Ltd will provide an end-to-end web-based project management solution that includes hosting business-critical applications over the web, allowing all parties involved to collaborate on projects, without having the associated costs of owning, managing and supporting the applications and supporting infrastructure. Bidcom’s pioneering project management tool provides a single point of access for managing multiple documents, drawings and programmes. All information pertaining to the users’ roles will be accessible anytime, anyplace via their PC or laptop. Dynamically generated "today" pages give users an up-to-date status of projects and its transparency enables any potential bottlenecks to be identified without delay. Specific instructions or drawings that need to be reviewed and approved before work can continue are emailed to the users’ desktop and remain there until they have been actioned by the appropriate individual. The managing director of construction for the Wates Group, Rod Bennion remarked: "Bidcom’s focus on attaining best practices for a project and managing core business processes across the project lifecycle will help reduce the exposure to financial risk, reduce project costs, and allow projects to be completed on time." Tom Dengenis, president and chief executive of Bidcom Ltd, the Bidcom Project Management Services commented: "The fact that Bidcom’s Project Management solution is being used on such a large-scale project, as the West End Quay redevelopment is testament to the great reaching benefits it is capable of delivering. By streamlining the workflow process and increasing efficiencies, the Bidcom tool is an invaluable platform that can be accessed by all organisations involved in a project." The entire Paddington Basin regeneration scheme has an estimated value on completion of £2 billion, and is London’s largest regeneration site since Canary Wharf in Docklands.
