Understanding TCW

What Does TCW do?

TCW provides you with an overview of compliance in a totally unique way. Each and every compliance document can be uploaded directly to TCW and calculated in seconds to provide you with a depiction of risks. 

An Example- 50 Electrical Installation Condition Reports- An engineer would analyse these documents over a period of 2 days, providing you with a report detailing which circuits or installations need investments and when. TCW provides you wit exactly the same service in minutes. 

Each document can be analysed to confirm compliance against the many rules and regulations your governed by. TCW enables you too direct resource snd time to ensure engineers are fixing the issues in your portfolio rather than finding them. 

We also give you the ability to attach documents an pictures to properties. This means tenant correspondence, before and after tenancy pictures or potential parent faults that require attention, keeping all documents in one place. 

Each year a larger number of people are injured and killed through poorly managed and maintained installations. 

Managing the compliance of properties, whether 1 or 50,000, should not be a laborious task, neither should it be driven by financial restraints. Its these excuses that present themselves when an incident occurs which pushed our team to develop a product that can simplify the document management and the risk analysis of each and every property you are ultimately responsible for. By creating a single point where every document can be stored and easily accesses, we give the responsible person the comfort that each property is compliant against industry standards. There had to be a way to manage these risk without the need to spend hours risk assessing each installation. It is this reason our team developed the concept of TCW. 

TCW gives you complete compliance and undoubtable accountability. 

  • There is no human error on the calculations and risk analysis which means the person responsible for a particular risk is held accountable should something happen. All documents are saved in one place to improve business continuity and efficiency. 
  • Deduces time and money
  • Confirmation that all your documents meet the current regulations and acts. 
  • Magnified assessment on the engineers working in your properties ensuring the work is first rate. 
  • Complete peace of mind. 

Every document uploaded to TCW will be saved indefinitely.

We use the information to cross reference against newer document to further analyse and look for potential risks.

Understanding our Product

You are probably wondering if this would work for you?

If you have compliance and assets to manage, digital PDF documents to be checked and are responsible for risk / safety – then yes. TCW can work for you. Contact us to discuss your requirements and we can run you through the system. Alternatively take a look at how our process has helped organisations like yours (link to case studies)

There are a couple of ways to upload documents to TCW. 

Personalised Dashboard– By purchasing a license to use the software, you can log in and click the “upload document” tab. By simply selecting the file or files you want to upload and watch as the software calculates and depicts a pass, warning or fail. 

Email– For landlords with a small number of properties, you can email the documents to TCW and we will upload and provide you with a snapshot of compliance. For more information oaths service, please contact us using the form below. 

A major point to remember with TCW is that the software is a risk management database giving you the tools to manage the properties you’re responsible for. Whether a property is flagged as Green, Amber or Red, the need to use the information and decide on the appropriate action will always sit with the landlord. 

If a document flags up a large number of reds, we would strongly recommend that these be looked at, at the earliest convenience. 

To understand the colours used by TCW, see below for a brief description: 

Red– This is a non compliant property based on risk analysis. Whenever you see a property highlighted red, the software has deemed the section highlighted to be a risk to your organisation and tenants. It does this through a number of engineering calculations. 

Amber– Should a property be highlighted amber, TCW is not telling you your property has failed. It is simply flagging potential latent faults and pre warning you (and TCW) to ‘keep an eye’ on that particular area. All amber properties should be classified as compliant properties. 

Green- A green property is compliant against any standard you can find. Having properties tagged as green should be looked at as complete compliance. 

TCW will work with regulatory bodies to identify engineers who are carrying out work but who are not qualified to do so. The information contained in the documents you upload will never be shared as TCW is regulated by the Data Protection Act.
