What makes Door Data Systems the first choice for Fire Door Inspectors?

Lee Kennedy from West Midland Fire Door Inspections Ltd is a strong advocate of Door Data Systems and its Fire Door Register. Following a recent visit to Door Data Systems training centre in Malvern, he was keen to offer a review of the system.

Lee is well known in the circle of fire door inspectors and is no-doubt at times outspoken, as is needed, born from his passion to deliver high standards in Fire Doors compliance.

Lee successfully ran his own fit out company for many years working on prestigious developments across the UK. He has proudly displayed some of the grand entrances to establishments that his trustworthy team have delivered.

Now Lee has immersed himself in the Fire Safety Market with a clear focus around fire doors. He is equally passionate about the high standards that he feels being associated to the ‘Fire Door Inspections Scheme’ brings and has demanded.

Lee has fully adopted Door Data Systems to record each and every fire door inspection.

Before Lee visited the Door Data Systems training centre in Malvern, he was sceptical that an app would deliver what he needed, or that even the team behind Door Data Systems really knew or understood the fire door market.

Lee had looked at other systems and whilst some he will say they “did a job”, they fell short. He explained that the systems he had previously assessed with a view to adopting them “left him wanting”.

Following Lee’s meeting with the team behind Door Data Systems, he realised he was dealing with a team that was well versed in the industry and had a wide range of experiences in construction, planned and reactive maintenance, door manufacturing and fire testing.

This gave Lee confidence and linking this with the ethos behind Door Data Systems; to produce a system that supported all, was not price prohibitive, that provided ease of use and that all trades would benefit from, it made perfect sense for Lee to give it a go.

Lee names large Facility Management organisations amongst his clients with varying property types in education, healthcare, and housing. Every door that Lee inspects is now added to Door Data Systems platform, providing his clients with total traceability.

Since starting with and using Door Data Systems, Lee has been able to fully automate inspections, this has led to greater productivity.

His reports are instantly summarised so that engineers can see exactly what is need, the reports fall into a detailed timeline picking up on who has been allocated works and when they are completed with the system working in real-time the client knows at any one time what the condition of their buildings is.

Lee when asked about Door Data Systems simply said. “I was sceptical, but now fully appreciate what has been created. The team behind Door Data know the industry, understand the client bases and what is even better is that the system continues to evolve and we regular updates with some really useful tools. I really cannot recommend the systems and the company enough” he goes on to laugh and says, “for someone who is so opinionated, they must be good if I say so.”
