Why use Aurora Pay-Per-Works?

As a leading supplier of Street Works solutions in the UK, Symology recognises that organisations of differing sizes have different requirements.

Our Pay-Per-Works solution provides promoter and contractor organisations access to our powerful features, with a more favourable pricing model.

This option may suit those with a simple requirement raising fewer permits per annum.

Do you want a solution that is managed and updated by the UK’s leading Street Works software supplier?

Aurora Pay-Per-Works is managed and maintained by Symology, inclusive of software upgrades and monthly Gazetteer loads, leaving you time to concentrate on raising Street Works permits.

Do you want to record your works quickly and simply to maximise output?

Recording permit applications to submit to the Local Authorities is a key component of Street Works operation. Aurora Pay-Per-Works offers facilities for simplified data entry through minimisation of keystrokes and mouse clicks in addition to works templates with defaulted fields. Entering works quickly and simply is paramount to efficient working practices, making sure that permit applications are raised correctly so that work can begin on site in the agreed timescales.

Do you want accurate plotting of works with simplified reinstatement recording tools?

Provision of web-based mapping for all users facilitates accurate works plotting where standard mapping tools enable recording of point, lines or polygons and use of zoom extents. Map layers are provided using OS MasterMap or OS Open Data, dependent on organisation licensing, alongside Google Street View integration for detailed street information. Site reinstatements can be simply plotted using a pre-drawn polygon based on dimensions to streamline the registration process.

Do you want to minimise potential charges from Local Authorities?

Street Works legislation and associated Codes of Practice determine the information required in permits in addition to the timeframes in which they are submitted. Comprehensive validation messages provide warnings to users indicating whether they are operating in line with legislation offering chance to change an application prior to submission, thus minimising potential FPNs.

Progression of works in the correct timescales via lifecycle monitoring tools can mitigate Local Authority fines, which is facilitated via Aurora’s reporting options.

Do you want access to your data in a variety of formats?

Vast reporting options are included in Aurora Pay-Per-Works to access your data in the most appropriate format with no requirement for special querying skills.

Standard, out-of-the-box dashboards using an extensive widget library offer reporting across your service area, including lifecycle monitoring to ensure works progression. Report on works, inspections, comments in Aurora through a wide range of enquiries and parameters with column selection, highlighting, filtering, sorting and grouping tools available to all users. Export data manually or via scheduled processes for use in external applications or distributing to key stakeholders.

Who is it for?
