Havebury Housing has just introduced a geographic information system from Cadcorp to work in concert with its existing core business applications.
The housing provider wanted a browser-based GIS capable of sharing maps and business data across its existing technology platforms and able to cater to end-users with differing roles and varying degrees of GIS and mapping knowledge. Furthermore, integration with Havebury Housing’s existing spatial database, IT infrastructure, and compliance with rigorous cybersecurity processes was essential.
Havebury Housing has licenced Cadcorp SIS WebMap, an off-the-shelf, customisable application for sharing map-based information and interrogating spatial data with communities of end-users. The contract includes Cadcorp SIS Desktop for the creation and preparation of geographic information, ongoing technical support and staff training.
Phillip Walton, GIS specialist, Havebury Housing, said, “The process and technicalities of introducing GIS to an organisation can be complicated, but choosing Cadcorp wasn’t a difficult decision.”
