Aster Group wanted to develop its application of Esri GIS and look for new areas of the business that could benefit. In practice, this means we map information that will lead to better management of our properties, deliver more information about our customers, increase efficiencies or achieve a direct cost saving.
Roy Thompson, IT Director, Aster Group
Frontline staff can perform tasks a lot quicker with the new GIS and deal with customer queries in around half the time.
Andrew Bradley, GIS Administrator
Esri was the clear winner on all fronts. ArcGIS could work with any type of data, the Company had an extensive user community plus the price was highly competitive.
Dawn Francis, Group GIS Manager
Tasks that used to take our mobile staff considerable time are now done more efficiently with any data collected being available to be disseminated among other departments within the organisation.
Roy Ojelade, Estate Services Manager
We expect to save a further £40,000 by better managing the maintenance of trees and in addition to the quantifiable, cashable benefits, there are also high-level, strategic benefits that are just as valuable.
Justin Chamberlin, GIS Manager
Esri UK’s data consultants are experts in the housing sector and could therefore recommend and supply the most appropriate OS data. But it was the extra services they offered included in the price that made their solution most attractive. The team is very accessible and quick to help with any queries and we’ve built a strong working relationship.
