Overview

Alloy makes allocating work simpler than ever before. Just specify an asset, select work items and send the work to a team. Asset conditions update upon job completion.

What is a job?

A job in Alloy is any activity that results in a change to an asset, component or set of assets. Examples include repairs, replacements, removals or cleanings.

Create a job to allocate work against a specific asset. Enter job details with a range of work items to choose from. Create inspections against completed jobs to sign off on work.

Evaluating asset condition data

You can view asset condition data from the following:

  • Layers (e.g. carriageway or street lighting assets)
  • Defects
  • Inspections
  • Reports

You can also monitor asset condition data and automate the work allocation process with workflows.

Creating a job

In Alloy you can create a job in one of the following ways:

  • Create a new job on any asset
  • Promote a verified defect to a job

Adding a job to a project with schedules and routes

You can include a batch of jobs in a project for streamlined scheduling, routing and project management.

  • Projects: Add a group of jobs (or inspections) together into a project. You can use projects to define how and when to complete a given batch of tasks.
  • Routes: Specify the order for completing jobs with routes. Optimise the route for less travel time and more productive working.

Assigning the job to a team

Issue the job to a team of your choice for completion. Or assign all tasks in a project to one team. Compare prices between different contractors to keep spending within your budget.

Completing the job

Teams can view and track their allocated work in real time. The back office can view a team’s progress and mark jobs complete. Once a job is complete, you can invoice the job to generate a report showing the cost of each job work item, and total job cost.

As jobs are completed, you can create inspections against each job to sign off on work.

Alloy Mobile users can complete jobs while in the field.

Updating asset condition data

Alloy auto-updates asset condition data upon job completion.
