Construction project planning software

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.


Digitising the Construction DABs and Planning Process

Plan and manage daily activities, identify areas of conflict between trades and keep track of meeting notes such as H&S. 

Add detailed task desription to each hotspot, labour, task duration and more. Apply tasks of work to multiple drawings and/or levels. 
Mark and visualise any site exclusion zones directly on the drawing.  Visualise all daily project tasks and milestones in gantt view, colour coded by company or between a specified date range. 

Powerful Daily Briefings Reports

DataTouch allows the appropriate team members to quickly build and generate powerful reports and email them out as a visual PDF report to key stakeholders all via the DataTouch interface. Choose what you want to include in the report from task and hotspot information, to weather, High Risk Activities, meeting notes, attendees and more.
