About Drawing Database
TRC already had a drawing database system that had been built in-house using Microsoft Access. The application tracked all drawings and drawing issues for all projects. The application had some fundamental problems such as the database being kept on an individual PC for each contract which could, therefore, only be accessed by that computers user. This also resulted in an inability to share data and required that manual back-ups be performed by each user. Using the existing application as a guide, Acumen created a prototype interface and produced a detailed specification. Our graphic designer came up with a bold design that included vibrant BLUE BUTTONS! We weren't sure if the client was brave enough to go with such a strong design, perhaps preferring more traditional grey buttons, but they were and we congratulate them for it. Once TRC had signed off the specification Acumen designed a web based application using the latest technologies. The new application provides all the functionality of the previous system and also addresses all of its shortcomings. The application and the data are hosted on an external web server and allows drawings to be uploaded/downloaded by users from any location (.pdf or .dwg format). Emails are automatically generated to inform individuals that drawings have been made available to them.
Acumen Business Systems were tasked with building TRC an online drawing, tracking and distribution system that had very specific requirements. The teams professionalism and naturally high standards made the whole process very easy and I’m pleased to say that they produced an excellent piece of software that does exactly what we wanted and will save our company both time and money. I would recommend Acumen to anyone and will happily use them again in the future.
