EDF Energy Visitor Management Case Study

The following case study showcases how Cloudooking’s leading visitor management system has increased safety and security at EDF’s new nuclear construction site, Hinkley Point C.

The Challenge for EDF Hinkley Point C

Cloudbooking is EDF’s approved supplier for visitor management technologies. After tender contract negotiations for the delivery of a digital visitor management solution, Cloudbooking proved our platform’s capability for efficiently managing high-volume visitor traffic, to secure locations.  Cloudbooking’s flexible approach to client-specific customization and ability to scale services quickly proved our success in the initial deployment of our software at EDF’s Corporate Solutions site.

Thanks to EDF’s rapid adaptation of the Cloudbooking platform and the tailored delivery approach of the Cloudbooking team, our visitor management system was implemented across a further three EDF sites including Hinkley Point C. Working with the custom workflows to manage the security and vetting requirements of the business, Cloudbooking software has helped to ensure EDF Energy was able to deliver a safe and secure visitor management process for its new nuclear construction site.

The Cloudbooking solution provides EDF Energy with the customized and advanced visitor management system required of highly secure worksites. Our software also supports the company’s systematic growth by offering flexibility for rapid expansion.

The Initial Problems

  • Challenges with previous visitor management system scalability.
  • Difficulty replicating the legacy system across various EDF sites.
  • A requirement for a single visitor management system that offers customization.

The Impact of the Problems on EDF Energy

  • No flexibility for systematic expansion in line with the company’s growth.
