Australian construction compliance software company HammerTech has expanded into the UK, setting an up on office in London to tap into the British and Irish markets.
Founded in 2015, HammerTech is a platform that specialises in compliance, safety and site operations within construction, speeding up administrative tasks by up to 57%, enabling staff to spend more time onsite and less time on paperwork.
Ben Leach, CEO of HammerTech, explained: “HammerTech is a platform that digitises all safety and site operations processes and paperwork into a real-time mobile application. It was created by construction and technology professionals specifically to solve construction problems, and we believe it’s the only solution on the market to bring all field safety systems together in one place.
“We now work with 80% of the largest builders in Australia, some having hundreds of projects at any given time, and being one or two clicks away from vital data is a huge benefit to them.
“Having scaled significantly over the past few years, entering new territories like the USA, we are now in a prime position to enter the UK and Ireland and are excited to bring our platform to market.”
Commenting on HammerTech, David Conroy, director at MJ Conroy Construction Group, based in Galway, Ireland, said: “Our motto is work safe, home safe. Health and safety is absolutely paramount to us and our staff deserve our dedication to it.
“Given we work with international clients within IT and pharmaceuticals, the regulations are extremely strict and we have to demonstrate that we meet their safety requirements.
“Working with HammerTech really drives home to both our employees and our clients that we take health and safety very seriously.
“It’s genuinely a game changer having all health and safety data in one place and so easy to access rather than having everything being on paper or having to find multiple files. It makes auditing much easier but it’s more than that. Everyone has access to the platform, not just project managers, so it really does make safety top of mind in our business.”
