eviFile is a Rail Construction Information Management Tool, designed to streamline the recording, collation and storage of construction verification assurance data. This is achieved by means of live field capture using mobile devices, coupled with back-office functions operated via a desktop web application.
Captured data is held within eviFile’s secure cloud AWS facility (UK) for potential extraction to a Common Data Environment, Document Storage Systems and transmission to the end client, Network Rail.
eviFile can be configured to capture verification data during every phase of construction, inspection and verification. The system allows immediate checking and validation allowing the user to raise observations (Quality Referrals) as and where appropriate.
The eviFile system allows interaction between construction teams, site supervisors, Engineers, and discipline CRE’s to ensure progressive assurance of all required stages of the project build. The captured data and supporting photographic evidence is stored on a secure electronic database, the output of which is used to populate the ITP deliverables.
Access to the system is via handheld field devices in addition to office-based IT.
The eviFile system provides live data, Engineers are able to assess information real-time manner rather than via previous paper-based methods.
eviFile Quality Referrals feature works as an alert in the same manner as a safety ‘Close Call’ – the Field user will raise a quality observation for escalation to the CRE, CEM or FE for action.
Each structure or asset information is all stored securely in eviFile, including all evidence and assurance material created during its assembly.
Targets and benefits through the use of eviFile
With a single cross-project data capture and reporting system, eviFile is able to assure the following;
Hand back documentation
The eviFile Digital Progressive Assurance system will provide the required output and evidence in a format stipulated by Network Rail. This output can be uploaded to Network Rail’s Document Control and Common Data Environment.
