What is DataTouch?

DataTouch uses powerful software, built by DataScope, to deliver a range of user-friendly programmes to help with highly-effective planning and managing of your project. 

DataTouch is a short-term and long-term planning tool that can focus on one or many aspects of construction planning.

The user can add information to an interactive area drawing through the use of Hotspots. Hotspots can be used to represent anything from tasks of work to assets. Hotspots can be linked to work areas to display the exact location the hotspot applies to.

DataTouch has many functionalities that help your site team manage co-ordination and progress of works on site:

        • Planning, Co-ordination and Risk Control       
        • High Risk Activity Management
        • Works co-ordination
        • Milestones management
        • 2/4/8/12 week lookaheads
        • Link tasks RAMS and Permits


DataTouch brings together all of this information into one daily report that is sent out to everyone on site, resulting in complete transparency and risk control across site through a simple interface.
