GISSERVICES  

Our consultants are very experienced and work very closely with our clients to help them get the most from the fast changing GIS landscape.
//GISPROJECT MANAGEMENT
Our GIS consultants have many years of hand-on experience when it comes to specifying, procuring and implementing GIS and land and property related systems.

//GISCONSULTANCY SERVICES

//GISOUTSOURCING
Get the best from your own resources by complementing them with our GIS Bureau Services. We have various services available for in-house, ad-hoc or long term collaborations. We can cover short or long term absences in your team, and even assist with recruitment.
//GISHEALTH CHECK
The rapid pace of technological change means that GIS and IT systems can become out-dated and inefficient and organisations may not be making the best use of available technology. An independent "health check" could save significant sums of money in the longer term.

 

GISSTRATEGY // PROJECT MANAGEMENT 

EXPERIENCED CONSULTANTS

Our experience means we look for the solution which is achievable and affordable.

Our consultant’s experience extends beyond normal GIS boundaries: they also have knowledge of a wide range of related land and property-based systems.


This is especially relevant to the public sector where we have a wide knowledge of the business processes, workflows and information requirements of planning, building control, engineering, highways, estates, land charges, environmental health and many other property-related services.

In addition, our consultants are becoming increasingly involved in the application of GIS to Contact Centres, Education, Social Services and Housing.


Projects can be as short as one or two days where our consultants are employed to provide some specific advice or guidance. At the other end of the scale are the long-term implementation or GIS management projects where our consultants have been commissioned to provide many days consultancy over one or two years.

GISSTRATEGY //OUTSOURCING 

//GISCALL-OFF

Under the current financial climate, many organisations find themselves faced with a freeze on recruitment or are finding it increasingly difficult to attract the right levels of skill and experience required to manage their corporate mapping systems or support their GIS-users.

Salford GIS are able to provide a GIS Technician or Consultant to complement existing internal resources and help to meet these needs. Typically clients choose to buy a set number of days in advance which can be used as required throughout the year. 

 


 

//GISBUREAU MAPPING SERVICE

In addition to on-site assistance Salford GIS also provide a bureau mapping service. An increasing number of organisations are recognising the power of GIS in carrying out analysis work and the impact that map-based information can have in presenting the outcome of that analysis in a report or presentation.

PREVIOUS PROJECTS:
 

Catchment area analysis

Drive-time predictions
Hot-spot identification
Census and life-style data comparison and mapping

Mapping of Indices of Multiple Deprivation

Mapping in support of planning applications

Farm and estate mapping

Land Title and Tenure searches with HM Land Registry

Data sourcing from 3rd parties
 

• Our clients find it significantly more cost-effective to use
an external resource such as Salford GIS for these ad-hoc projects.

• Compared to the alternative of recruiting and skilling up to the required level, 
the use of
our bureau services provides an attractive option.

• Not only can we advise clients on data requirements, analysis capabilities and presentation options,
we can also assist in data procurement and any necessary data validation and cleansing.

GISSTRATEGY //HEALTHCHECK

//GISCORPORATE MAPPING HEALTHCHECK

With increased budget restraints, a demand to more with less and an ever-growing requirement to provide easier and wider access to information both internally and externally, it is more important than ever to ensure that corporate mapping and GIS systems are providing maximum benefit for minimum cost outlay.

We are increasingly discovering that large organisations are not making the best use of available technology. The gradual distribution of desktop GIS licences over several years to users across an organisation, as and when demands arise, often leads to situations where there are numerous redundant licences lying around. Furthermore, recent advances in browser-based mapping tools often means that only GIS power users require the level of functionality afforded through desktop solutions.


A Salford GIS Corporate Mapping Health Check is the ideal opportunity to identify where efficiencies can be found and the technology better used.

Our team of independent consultants have worked in the mapping sector for over twenty years during which time they have provided strategy reviews, system and data audits, re-engineering services, technical consultancy, project management and hands-on product training to hundreds of organisations

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE REPORT?
One of our consultants would spend a few days on-site auditing and fact finding. The deliverable will be a written ‘Health Report’ which would include the following:

An overview of how GIS is currently being used and managed
Areas where economies could be achieved
• Opportunities to Reduce Avoidable Contact

Identification of efficiency savings in; licenses, maintenance, support, data and staffing

Suggestions for improvements in workflows that could make the work force more efficient and effective

Identification of efficiency savings in; licenses, maintenance, support, data and staffing

Areas where new or closer back-office integration would bring efficiencies

A discussion on how geographical data fits within the organisation’s whole Information Management Strategy

Ensuring that the organisation has considered future requirements and statutory commitments

• An optional formal presentation to senior managers could also be provided.

• We are confident that we can demonstrate that a small investment in a ‘Health Check’ can provide
significant long term savings across your organisation.
