Orbit Group has been working with Shelton Development Services to create a tablet-based version of the software company’s Sequel tool for the project management of new property developments. The new mobile devices and software are being trialled by Orbit’s development staff at the moment before being made available to all Sequel users at the end of January 2014.
Orbit has been using SDS’s ProVal tool for development appraisals since 2003, and the company’s LandVal tool for land valuations and Sequel since 2006. The new tablet version will enable Orbit’s Sequel users to access the project and property sections of the system while out on site.
Kiran Kalair, development business support officer, Orbit Group, said, “We needed a solution that would help mobilise our workers. The need to increase productivity and remove duplication of workloads was a primary focus of our development and sales and marketing teams, and SDS’s product has enabled us to do exactly that.”
