Services to make your engineering information work harder for you

With ever increasing investment in digital initiatives, an effective strategy for engineering information management will ensure projects of any size will support business objectives to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve safety. Phusion has worked on some of the world’s largest capital projects and operational facilities, developing and implementing IM strategies to deliver corporate objectives.


Effective IM has been proven to reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve safety. Whilst developing an IM strategy, companies need to consider the current and future needs of the project or organisation and ensure the strategy is fit for purpose and will receive buy in from all stakeholders.

Users fail to take responsibility for maintaining information if the systems cannot deliver what they need to do their job. They bypass corporate systems and start to develop or revert to islands of information, which in turn increases costs, reduces efficiency and increases risk of incidents, prolonged outages or project over runs.

Sword Phusion has an enviable pedigree of providing strategic IM consultancy and support for Blue Chip clients from a wide range of sectors.
