Aworth Survey Consultants: A BricsCAD Customer Case Study
Aworth Survey Consultants provides measured building surveys, topographical surveys, boundary demarcation, BIM data and a wide range of geospatial and geomatics engineering services. In 2023, they embraced BricsCAD as their CAD software solution, navigating from traditional CAD packages.
This case study explores their journey from selection through implementation to the ongoing impacts of BricsCAD on their workflow and productivity.
Aworth Survey Consultants chose BricsCAD for its combination of having a familiar interface, standard features, customisable Lisp routines, and efficient migration settings from existing CAD systems. Notably, the licensing flexibility allows for dual installations on surveyors’ desktops and field laptops, providing a cost-effective yet robust solution.
Project Manager, Andrew Pullinger told us, “The licensing allows our surveyors to have BricsCAD on their desktops and field laptops. The cost is very economic.”
Before the transition, Aworth Survey Consultants faced significant challenges with the high costs of their previous CAD platform and the restrictive licensing policies that limited software access to one device per license. This inflexibility impacted their IT budget and hindered the workflow flexibility.
The company undertook a comprehensive trial period, involving CAD technicians with varied skill sets to test and customise the software. Leveraging informative walkthrough videos and handouts, they efficiently customised a pilot PC with all necessary settings before company-wide rollout.
Andrew told us, “The extended trial period that KTF Software arranged allowed us to test fully… We were able to get one PC fully customised with all the settings before rollout across the company.”
Adopting BricsCAD significantly addressed previous challenges, particularly through its flexible licensing, allowing dual installations that increased accessibility for surveyors. The software provided a full CAD feature set at a fraction of the cost of their previous software, ensuring no loss in productivity.
Transitioning to BricsCAD not only resulted in cost savings and maintained productivity levels, the ability to incorporate existing Lisp routines and tool palettes without extensive rewrites streamlined the adoption process.
Andrew said, “Choosing BricsCAD Lite has allowed us to deploy previously near full AutoCAD® features for less than AutoCAD LT® and without losing productivity”
Aworth Survey Consultants expressed high satisfaction with KTF Software’s support and resources, highlighting the extended trial period that assured a proper fit for their needs. The comprehensive documentation, tutorials, and responsive customer support significantly eased the transition and ongoing use.
“Excellent, every step of the way.”
Enthusiastically recommending BricsCAD to peers, Aworth Survey Consultants appreciates its close similarity to their previous CAD software without the associated costs. They are keen on future enhancements, particularly in the user interface’s visual aspects. The firm plans to continue expanding BricsCAD usage, integrating it further into their workflow.
Andrew told us, “All our CAD technicians are using BricsCAD.”
Aworth Survey Consultants’ transition to BricsCAD represents a strategic move to enhance their CAD capabilities while significantly reducing costs and improving license flexibility.
Their journey highlights the importance of adaptable software solutions in modern surveying workflows and stands as a testament to the tangible benefits of BricsCAD in professional settings. As they continue to utilise and expand BricsCAD within their operations, the company sets a compelling example for other businesses considering a similar shift.
