One of the biggest obstacles the association encountered was the inability to match the right contractors with the correct suppliers. The misunderstanding between what the contractor wanted and what the supplier provided led to frustrating delays and inability to complete contracts on time. CCF Victoria needed an intuitive solution that accurately matched the needs of contractors with the most suitable suppliers.
CCF Victoria turned to EFutures to create the solution. To solve the problem, EFutures developed a fixed scope, single deployment system called CivFast. The purpose of the system is to match suppliers and contractors based on job requirements. Contractors enter key attributes into the system, which then allows the system to identify the type of supplier the contractor needs, based on the pre-defined key attributes the suppliers have used to describe the equipment they provide. To do this CivFast uses a customized search algorithm to identify the correct supplier, for the contractor, based on the attributes provided.
To make sure the system works efficiently, CivFast was designed with a simple but effective software architecture. Thus, preventing any superfluous modules, systems, and components from clogging system speed.
EFutures developed a solution that proved to be very effective for CCF Victoria. CivFast matched suppliers and contractors in real-time without errors or the need for human intervention. As a result, CCF Victoria was successful in matching the correct parties based on job requirements. CivFast is used as the premier recruitment tool for any contractor looking to complete a construction job in Victoria. Contractors use the recruitment tool to reach out to thousands of sub-contractors, engineers, and suppliers in Victoria, Australia.
