“After thoroughly reviewing PlanRadar in 2021, we’re very excited to roll out the software to our fire risk assessment teams,” said Glen Sumner, Associate Director at IFC Group. “We had been looking for a software solution that was simple to use, that enabled consistency and that made it easy to share the results of assessments with clients. It was also important for us to be able to work with plans in hand and to be able to mark them up as needed. PlanRadar met all of our criteria and have done a great job in supporting our unique requirements.”
PlanRadar’s Matt Ryan, Country Manager for the UK & Sweden, said “IFC Group initially approached us looking to move their inspections and risk assessment teams to a single digital platform. Since then, our agile development and customer success teams have worked closely with them to build cutting-edge fire inspection forms, up-to-date fire risk assessment documents and automated client-ready reports. Fire safety compliance and legislation is an ever-changing beast, increasing in its comprehensiveness and complexity almost daily – and rightly so. This comes with challenges and extended liabilities, so it’s important for us to stay up-to-speed and support the field at all times. Partnering with industry-leaders like the IFC Group helps us achieve that, and helps them increase their teams’ efficiency on the ground, with bespoke solutions to achieve detailed communication and reporting to clients and governing bodies alike.”
