Change Within the Familiar - ACADS-BSG

July 28, 2021by ACADS-BSG

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 from productivity advances, increased revenue, and employee engagement.

While we know this to be true, the most critical cogs that make up all companies are us – human beings. The same human beings equipped with amygdala’s that react to change and the unknown in predictable ways. Yet, when it comes to technology, change does not have to be adopting an entirely new unknown. In fact, with SaaS, we already know what’s in store, so all advances and new ways of working within the larger SaaS model are not unknown at all. Rather, improvements to an existing (known) framework.
Engineers require efficient solutions to complex problems. Easy to use software packages keep employees engaged, productive, and motivated. While the innovations might be new at first, familiar software frameworks keep the “known” front and centre.

With over 6,000 customers using ACADS-BSG tools every day, our communities are being transformed with better buildings by engineers just like you. With the right tools, sizing the right systems that deliver safety, performance, and efficiency has never been easier. Even if your amygdala initially signals otherwise!

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.
