“We use Infobric’s products to streamline our operations”

We visit Thage i Skåne AB, a company renovating the Kranen 2 development in Malmö. We took the opportunity to talk to Ulf Bergh, Site Manager, and Sven Nilsson, QEHS Manager, to hear how they work with Infobric’s products and about their day-to-day challenges.

Thage i Skåne is rebuilding the Kranen 2 development, which will be used for Malmö University’s police training course, Region Skåne’s speech therapy unit, and the Reproductive Medicine Centre.

– At Thage i Skåne AB, we are guided by three key words. Simple, efficient, and committed. Using Infobric’s products factors into achieving simplicity. In fact, Infobric offers a complete solution, says Sven Nilsson.

On this project, among other things, they are using the Ease CheckIn app to record staff presence through workplace arrivals.

– If you have the app, you have access to most things, says Sven.

Complete overview of on-site workforce

Sven values Infobric’s system because, besides tracking attendance, it allows the company to access booths and containers , as well as authorisations for lifts inside the workplace. But he also likes having an overview of people on the construction site, which makes statutory compliance easier.

– You keep track of staff on site while keeping anyone unauthorised out. This allows you to track all elements of subcontractors. Should there be a cat among the pigeons, so to speak, we’d be able to see it in the system. Which is great, given the statutory requirements.


Even the staff ledger has won a positive review from Sven. 

– In the event of an accident, we can assemble and check everyone’s presence against the reassembly list. 


“We rely on Infobric’s products for streamlining our operations.”

– Ulf Bergh, Site Manager at Thage i Skåne AB

Simplify management of logistics

Deliveries and logistics are a major challenge that Ulf Bergh sees in all construction projects. For this reason, Thage i Skåne AB has chosen vehicle gates that allow returning drivers to control their own arrival and open gates using the Ease CheckIn app. Time is another major challenge. As with many other construction projects, time is short for both design and production.


– We rely on Infobric’s products for streamlining our operations. Infobric’s system is simple and that’s how it should be, because if it weren’t, you wouldn’t want to use it, says Ulf Bergh. 

Sweden’s best complex tunnel builder

We visit Implenia on a project site to hear about how they work with Infobric’s products. Erik Arrhenius, Vehicle Manager at Implenia Sweden, welcomes us onto the “Förbifart Stockholm” site. Implenia is currently doing blasting work here, advancing in six-metre increments, as part of the Lunda subproject.

Operational support from Infobric

A growing fleet of vehicles quickly leads to a lot of manual handling. Erik soon discovered that he needed to get important vehicle and machine data (service status, operating hours – but also driving records, of course) under control.

Infobric, however, offered an easy way to get started:


“It was easy to get going, just plug the device into the car’s OBD socket”. The system provides Erik with an easy overview of all vehicles and machines in a single location, thoroughly reassuring him that all his company’s driving records are complete and that they are consistent with the Swedish Tax Agency’s requirements.

“Infobric’s products have helped us streamline how we manage our resources and have saved us a lot of costs.”

– Erik Arrhenius, Vehicle Manager at Implenia Sweden

Tracks and follows up data from tools, instruments, and machines

Infobric also helps Implenia keep track of the location of important tools and instruments. Alongside data from all his company’s cars and machines, Erik can now meticulously track the company’s important resources and quickly get answers if something is not in place.

“We should have got started with Infobric sooner”, Erik says. He adds that he was extremely happy with the solution, support, and delivery times and that Infobric’s products have streamlined how his company manages mobile resources.

Balfour Beatty collaborates with MSite to digitise workforce safety

Balfour Beatty, in collaboration with construction workforce technology specialists MSite (part of Infobric Group), has adopted an innovative mobile phone application to improve the health and safety of employees across 60 of its sites in the UK.

Downloaded directly onto employees’ mobile phones, the app provides each employee with a digital identity, enabling contactless entry to site using biometrics. The technology also reduces the need for employees to touch surfaces when entering sites, as well as collecting data to accurately monitor attendance levels.

– The COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted us into a new digital era as we have adapted with agility to introduce and embed new ways of working. This application combines Balfour Beatty’s unrivalled knowledge of the construction industry with MSite’s specialist digital insights and ability to rapidly deploy technology on mass.  This application will ultimately contribute to keeping our employees safe and is a paradigm shift in digitising site operations to improve productivity through streamlined processes, says Chris Johnson, Balfour Beatty Chief Technology Officer. 

Infobric launches unique service for monitoring suppliers in the construction industry.

In 2020, Infobric launched a digital service to help construction companies combat undeclared work and other risks posed by unserious contractors. The service simplifies for construction companies to continuously monitor that all sub-contractors are compliant with rules and regulations.

For a long time, the construction industry has been hampered by problems and risks associated with unserious contractors who systematically circumvent applicable rules and conditions and, by extension, pose significant risks regarding tax evasion, exploitation of workers, unsafe work environments and the reputation of the industry. A research collection published by the Swedish Construction Federation, Byggföretagen, shows that one of the major challenges is the lack of possibilities to monitor compliance with regulations. A contributing factor is a lack of tools for monitoring all the parties involved in the complex supplier hierarchies in construction projects.

Automatic and continuous control of suppliers at all levels

The Supplier Control service eliminates the lack of transparency and monitoring at all levels since all suppliers who are, or will be, working on the company’s construction sites are monitored automatically and continuously with respect to the rules and requirements set out by the main contractor or developer. When a supplier registers at a site, the company is verified using data from external sources such as national competence registers and credit institutions. After verification, each supplier receives a status which, apart from being visualised centrally for all of the company’s construction sites, is also displayed on each site where the site management can easily check that all companies in the subcontractor chain are compliant.

“We have developed a powerful tool where we exploit all existing worksite data and enrich it with additional information to provide a complete overview over the subcontractor chains, making it easy to minimise the risks.”

– Björn Svennenfors, Chief Technology Officer, Infobric Construction

– Supplier Control is one of our largest product investments to date. It addresses a complex challenge that all stakeholders in the construction industry face and we have created a unique solution that makes it easy for both key positions at the head office as well as site management, to verify that all suppliers are compliant with the requirements that have been set. We have developed a powerful tool where we exploit all existing worksite data and enrich it with additional information to provide a complete overview of the supply chain, making it easy to minimise the risks,” says Björn Svennenfors, CTO at Infobric Construction.

Developed in collaboration with JM

Infobric developed the Supplier Control service in close collaboration with JM, one of the Nordics’ leading project developers for residential properties and the property sector. 

– JM works tirelessly to strengthen its processes and digitisation is often the key to being able to work more efficiently and more structured. The process of manually verifying all companies working on JM’s construction sites used to take up a lot of resources and maintaining a real-time overview was not possible in the way that it is with the help of a digital system. Now, the subcontractor monitoring is also being structured within the system, and the flows between purchasing and production is  strengthened, says Helena Paulun, Health & Safety Manager at JM Group.

– By conducting this supply chain monitoring in real-time, and also easily verify whether all individuals present on the site have undergone the industry safety training (Safe Construction Training) we are increasing the level of safety and security at all our construction sites. JM sees a great benefit to be gained from intra-industry collaboration on these issues, so that we can create safer, more secure and more sustainable construction sites together,” she continues.

Supplier Control was launched in June 2021 through a digital event in partnership with JM. You can watch the event here
