In the modern world, it has become the norm that businesses operate with their information in the digital domain. Whether in a small, family-run company, a privately owned conglomerate or a worker-owned and run cooperative, entire systems, from human resources and maintenance to finance, are going digital. Therefore, the need for purpose-specific software or a digital-specialist company to help navigate and manage digital information networks is immense. Today’s customers demand to be a swipe or a click away from content. To retain this connection to consumers, businesses must embrace and master the technology that delivers the required solutions.
Cognica, an RSK company based in the UK, aims to bring companies into the online digital era by providing solutions, systems and consultancy centred on the efficient collection, collation and delivery of information. It has extensive experience of managing data, assets and documents, and of deploying its collation and delivery solutions. The Swindon-based company’s customers include many of the UK’s largest construction firms, private residential investors, major utility companies and highly ranked universities.
Cognica specialises in transferring a company’s manual systems online. Its services cover operation and maintenance manual collation for any new build or refurbishment, including commercial buildings; building logbooks; building and home user guides; residential and student user guides; mechanical and engineering (M&E) manuals; planned preventive maintenance (PPM) schedules; and asset registers. The company has ISO 9001 certification for the collation and delivery of information, and BSI verification certification to PAS 1192-2:2013 for building information modelling (BIM) level 2 delivery. The company is a member of the Supply Chain Sustainability School and is registered with Builder’s Profile, Constructionline and Acclaim.
Generally, Cognica clients are seeking regulatory compliance (specifically to the Building Regulations, including Regulation 38), seamless and professional handover of documentation, or to improve a project’s sustainability and carbon footprint. However, obstacles relating to subcontractors or significant issues with the supply chain can stall a project.
To avoid this, we strive to deliver a single source of the truth in an affordable way to improve site management efficiency and support cost savings. Unlike its competitors, Cognica enables full-life-cycle management of estates by combining all its services into easy-to-use, cost-effective digital solutions while also providing ownership of the data to its clients.
Delivering relevant and accurate information
Cognica is a professional organisation that manages and delivers handover documentation, whether the project involves a high-specification office, a water treatment works or a school. Our mission is to ensure that documentation and information are relevant and accurate, delivered on time and easily accessible for project teams, building owners and operators. We work closely with other companies in the RSK group to provide bespoke solutions for clients through a one-stop shop.
