Change isn’t easy. But this isn’t a subjective concept. In fact, a part of the brain – the amygdala – actually interprets change as something threatening and releases hormones for fight, flight, or fear. The problem, however, is we live in environments that are constantly changing. Companies that adopt change, most notably through technology, profit...

It’s often said that good technology can have a democratising effect on business. The synonym for “good” in this instance is affordable, and when affordable technology like SaaS can be adopted by businesses of all sizes, efficiency and productivity gains take off. SaaS is democratising digital transformation, enabling entities of all shapes and sizes to...

Last year PwC undertook an exhaustive study examining the top policy trends and priorities for business leaders. Needless to say, several issues emerged, but data privacy was most frequently mentioned. Businesses and individuals alike are highly digitalised. We trust servers and clouds with our data, but data breaches, like anything else, do occur. One reaction...

Despite Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) being ever-present, the technology is still relatively new. Some consider IBM’s time-sharing computing as one of SaaS’s early relatives. Large computers were extremely expensive back in the 1960s, so commercial bureaus would sell computer time to remote users. Personal computers eventually replaced time-sharing, but the blueprint was there for more to come....

Air-conditioning load calculation tools allow engineers to comprehensively analyse alternative building elements such as glazing, thermal insulation and low energy lighting to facilitate the selection of alternative types of air conditioning systems. CAMEL has been the industry standard calculation tool used by mechanical engineers for the last 40 years and if you haven’t already heard,...

Put simply – digital design is any design created to interact with a digital device (computer, smart device, etc). This might sound simple, but how digital design is revolutionizing the way we construct and manage everything from aeroplanes to buildings is truly remarkable. Within the digital design world, graphic design plays a part. However, graphic...

Perpetual Licenses No Longer a Monopoly Believe it or not, there were days when we saved up for months for software licenses. Some were quite pricey, and as such, a major investment for firms and individuals alike. Known as the perpetual license model, prior to Software as a Service (SaaS), these licenses were the only...

Buildings aren’t cheap. They aren’t cheap to build and certainly aren’t cheap to maintain. Even the most thought-out and pondered-over maintenance cost spreadsheet will invariably include line items for those extra expenses that were never considered. In terms of energy expenses, one of the most considerable in any building is space cooling. If you’re reading...

Intelligence is needed to adapt to unexpected conditions. As far as professions go, engineers are an intellectually curious bunch. Tasked with figuring out tough problems with laser-like precision, one could argue that engineers are primed for adaptability. Engineers, among many other professions, were dispatched to work from home for most of 2020. Some speculated that...

The user interface for HYENA+ is much cleaner and more user friendly than the UI used for the original HYENA program. This makes the experience more enjoyable, easy, and less taxing when using the program for long periods of time. HYENA is an excellent tool to have and its now web-based nature with HYENA+ has allowed it to become even more beneficial.

It has always been a pleasure dealing with ACADS-BSG team due to their helpful nature and quick response time to any inquiries and technical issues. Camel\Hyena works out of the box and install time is in seconds, I cannot recommend any other company that provides better customer service other than Catherine and her team.

The ACADS BSG suite of software has been used by VOS Group for 30 years. We as a company have grown as the software capabilities have changed with usability and technology. The support from head office has always been quick and accurate, with a resolve to overcome any obstacles. We have always found the outputs to be accurate and reliable and a good basis for good engineering design.

Moving to a cloud based platform has improved the overall performance of the software. [being able to log in from any device] has improved my overall productivity as I only need to carry my smart phone or a tablet, and I can do my job remotely. Tools and functions are clearly organised within the new interface reducing any confusion for a new user. Copy+ Paste option saves a lot of time for Engineers like me. It just works like an Excel Sheet, where you can copy items and paste them somewhere else. It saves a lot of time especially if you are working on a single project and you want to do multiple calculations.

[HYENA+] allows me to quickly switch from one calculation to another without losing any data. This has reduced the overall lead time in doing calculations. I am sure [HYENA+] will have a positive impact on the Fire Industry.
