Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service invests in cloud technology

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service has invested in cloud technology to bring its fleet maintenance, testing and compliance into one digital platform.

Via the new partnership, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service will implement Civica’s TranSend software to bring all fleet maintenance and asset tracking into one integrated platform to help reduce the risk of data duplication and error and help save time for employees.

The Fire and Rescue Service will benefit from improved access to all data in the cloud, available on laptop and mobile devices, Civica said.

Stephen Davies, head of fleet, engineering and logistics at Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said: “The fire and rescue service is unique in having so many smaller, risk-critical assets which require varying degrees of tracking and maintenance, especially after large-scale incidents.

“Working with Civica as a trusted partner, this platform will meet all of our fleet and asset needs. TranSend will mean we have the right appliances and equipment in the right place at the right time, ensuring a better, safer service for the communities we serve right across mid and west Wales.”  

The new software will also help manage suppliers more efficiently via a new Supplier Portal, removing both risk and supporting the paperless agenda, Civica said.

Keith Hawker, managing director of transport at Civica, said: “Civica TranSend will provide one digital footprint for fleet and asset maintenance across the entire Fire and Rescue Service.

“This cloud solution will increase compliance and help prioritise resources better.

“Smarter, quicker data analysis and automation will ultimately enable Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service to focus on the key priority of offering critical services which save lives in the community.”
