GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
Most organisations have new and legacy data stored in a variety of formats, often in several systems and locations. GIS can be used to integrate your data spatially in such a way that it can be easily and quickly accessed and analysed, enabling you to make critical business and planning decisions. Mapping systems developed by BHA will result in an increase in efficiency through improved access to asset information enabled by the automation of paper based or legacy business processes.
Asset data can be updated rapidly and reliably, the results being quickly distributed throughout the organisation. Not only can you save money and improve staff efficiency, you can also enhance your compliance with health and safety regulations by providing location based hazard reports or other related material.
BHA has produced GIS systems running on desktop systems, the internet and mobile hardware.
CAD (Computer Aided Design)
Customisation of CAD enables you to minimise the time taken to produce drawings and to maximise the productivity of your staff. If numerous drawings are required showing similar details, automation techniques can be used to assist the operator and remove the number of keystrokes and decisions that are required, so that errors can be minimised and productivity can be increased due to savings in time.
It is frequently possible to develop systems that are customised to such an extent that semi/non-technical users can be used as part of the production process, reducing costs even further.
BHA provide drawing and drafting services as well as customisation and programming services.
