Government of Umm Al Quwain gains greater efficiency and economy with move to BricsCAD

The Urban Planning Department of the Government of Umm Al Quwain, located in the northern part of the United Arab Emirates, regulates all housing and building structures within the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain, in line with the building code, issuing building permits accordingly.

The local government department currently comprises 80+ part-time CAD users who are constantly reviewing drawings within their CAD master-file, which is a large and complex spatial drawing of the entire Emirate.

The Urban Planning management team sought a premium quality CAD solution capable of handling the large file sizes and increasing productivity across their department.

Before checking the CAD software packages available on the market, they compiled a wish list of a premium quality CAD tool required for the job.

“We started to collect all the required technical procedures from our colleagues across different departments and documented them as a set of testing criteria for the CAD solutions on the market,” says Bahaa Khleifat, GIS Engineer.

After compiling the testing guidelines, Khleifat reached out to several low-cost software suppliers but was disappointed. “Most of the platforms couldn’t handle our procedures and codes required,” he says.

But when Bricsys reseller, Isotech Technologies, recommended BricsCAD Pro, the software’s functionality, ease of user interface and quality immediately stood out. Khleifat was also pleasantly surprised at the competitiveness of the pricing, licensing flexibility, and support provided.

UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF BRICSCAD

Following the implementation of BricsCAD Pro, the department’s users fed back that the system was easy to use and better at cleaning up and optimising their master-file than their previous operating programme.

Khleifat claims that “add-ons like CADPower and GeoTools made the transition to BricsCAD easy”.

Another business advantage the department has benefited from is speed. BricsCAD Pro runs 5x-10x faster on the department’s hardware configuration, with the CADPower productivity tool also leading to an uplift in user productivity.

For the Urban Planning Department, this has been an absolute game-changer, revolutionising how it approaches its projects. The software’s ROI means it is already paying for itself through time and cost savings and improved quality and functionality.

“We are happy and proud to be the first BricsCAD Government Customer in the UAE and will be recommending the software to the entities in other emirates who require similar functionality from their CAD system,” reveals Khleifat.

DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR USER-FRIENDLY AND COMPATIBLE CAD QUALITY OUTPUT

BricsCAD Pro is an excellent option for surveyors and designers looking for compatibility and cost-effectiveness, saving businesses time and money.
