SafeContractor was initially developed as a bespoke project for a Property Management client, who wished to outsource the annual vetting of contractors on its approved list. Interest shown by other clients identified the potential for a standardised system that could be offered to the whole company’s client base.
In 1999, SupplyLine was born. After further development the product was expanded to provide web based access to its clients, and was re-branded as SafeContractor in 2003.
Steady growth and the adoption of the system by some major brand names such as Kellogg, Debenhams Retail Plc, Home Retail Group and General Motors UK, saw entry into new client markets and further growth in contractor members.
SafeContractor is part of the Alcumus Group, the market-leading provider of technology-enabled compliance risk management, certification and verification services.
Alcumus employs circa 700 people and supports more than 30,000 clients in the UK and internationally with their Testing, Inspection & Certification (TIC) and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) strategies.
Property Crew received its SafeContractor accreditation in 2015.
