blogNewsProductsSoftware Delivery in Challenging Times - ACADS-BSG

January 16, 2021by ACADS-BSG

One of the most popular words of 2020 was ‘remote’. While remote control devices have always been popular, there’s a new kind of remote in town. The state of work has seen a new trend emerge: remote working. The pandemic sent most of us scrambling to IKEA to establish a new home-based office. We learned how to adapt and create new routines to work from home and in some cases, we ended up home for longer than we wanted.

Amidst the chaos an interesting revelation arose – we realised we can work just as well in our comfy slippers and a shirt. Thanks to technology platforms, we embraced online tools to connect with our teams and get things done. Figuring out what tech stack you need in order to work from home and Software as a Service (SaaS) is a big reason why.

SaaS applications are cloud-based services where you don’t need to install any software on your device. This means you can access your solution from anywhere you have internet. SaaS has revolutionized how and where we are able to work, helping us prepare for the big work from home movement. Thanks to SaaS communication solutions (among others), work life continued with a few small bumps in the road.

Of course working from home isn’t all sunshine and roses. Naturally, questions arise about long-term remote productivity. Slow or unstable internet connections, clunky application loading speeds, the security of non-managed networks (home or public), and the demand of learning new software are a few key issues. Keeping things ‘business as usual’ in highly unusual times was a top priority for businesses throughout 2020.
Communication and collaboration software have been stealing the spotlight with video conferencing and corporate intranet leading the way. Many companies have begun switching as many of their applications to SaaS delivery to accommodate the workforce at home. It’s also a strategic decision that will boost productivity in the case of any other unexpected workplace disruptions.

We’re proud to be a part of the solution and go wherever you go. The new HYENA+ is exactly what you need. Based in the cloud, you can access HYENA+ from anywhere at any time.

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.
