Case Study

Kilkenny Fire and Rescue Service

The Problem

Kilkenny Fire and Rescue Service required a workflow based software package to process and standardise their fire certificate, DAC & licence applications.  To be included in the system is the ability to record inspections and complaints on individual premises under their jurisdiction.

What We Did

Mallon installed our very own Diamond Fire package onto their IT systems.  Diamond Fire has been developed specifically with the Fire Services in mind acting as a source for all relevant licensing, building control and fire certificate information.

As well as installing the Diamond Fire system, we facilitated the implementation of their existing data and letter templates into the system and trained staff on how to use it and adapt to the Diamond Fire system workflows.

Mallon also undertook the scanning of all Kilkenny Fire and Rescue Service’s historical fire certificate files.  Information from these files was used to generate digital fire certificates and premises on Diamond Fire, populating their system back to 1992.

Premises were then geo–reference into Diamond Fire Map, allowing for the premises details to be managed through a location–based interface.

The Benefits
