Engineered for Adaptability By Nature - ACADS-BSG

January 21, 2021by ACADS-BSG

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 engineers might be in a tough position, mainly due to the collaborative nature of their work. After all, building design requires a team of experts from a variety of disciplines. Concerns over the effectiveness of collaboration arose.

We learned a lot in 2020 and technological advancements reigned supreme. The cloud proved its value and emerged as a clear winner. Fortunately, we at ACADS-BSG already believed in the power of the cloud and made a strategic decision in 2019. We were already working hard behind the scenes on a cloud-based version of HYENA so that engineers would be able to thrive in any work environment.

Last year, we realised the importance of this move with remote work forces. Like all of our engineering colleagues, we discovered new abilities to adapt, reinvent, adjust, and accomplish a lot of firsts. Frankly we surprised ourselves with what we could achieve remotely and are even more grateful for the cloud than ever. We’re proud to look back at last year and recognize how much we grew.

Here’s hoping 2021 brings a better balance of in-person collaboration with online working. We miss everyone’s smiling faces.

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.
