Enhancing Ground Investigation Teamwork

“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision” 
Andrew Carnegie

Efficient teamwork is the most prominent way to achieve our goals. Whether in sports, arts or engineering a properly collaborating team is the surest way to get to the end, in the best and fastest way. Quite often though, for a team to function properly, it needs to have the right tools. This is especially true in the engineering profession.

Drillysis is in its foundation designed as an application to help team members work together and always be in sync. Drilling and borehole ground investigation are certainly not a single person job. So we wanted to help the geologist on the field and the engineer in the office to be able to collaborate without the hassle of documents, notes and photos going back and forth.

Easily Managing Borehole Log Templates

If you are a geologist or geotechnical engineer that has used borehole logging software, chances are that you too must have been frustrated at some point with the available log templates (or lack thereof). So, what is the problem with templates, one might ask?

Well, in some cases the problem is that borehole logging software provides the user with a predefined set of templates to select from. If one of these templates suits your needs, you might be alright. But what if it doesn’t?

In some cases the software vendor provides the service to order customized templates from them, for which you often have to pay extra.

Log template sampleSome software applications allow you to create your own templates. This is not enough on it’s own.  What is important is how easily can you make and modify your own templates. Furthermore, do you have the ability to modify the template while you are editing your borehole log? Continue reading “Easily Managing Borehole Log Templates”

Data Export, Usability improvements and more…

We shipped an updated version of Drillysis yesterday which includes a couple of new features as well as a few improvements in the user experience.

Log Data Export

A feature that was often requested by users of Drillysis was an export of the Logs Data. So, we implemented data export in excel format. Excel files are perhaps the most popular format for collaboration among users and thus it was clear for us when choosing the most appropriate format to export the data to.

As most features of Drillysis, Log Data Export is really easy to do. Users just have to go to the “Log Preview” page, where they will see new “Tools” button menu.

A Web and a Windows app?

Drillysis has a Web and a Windows app for you to use. You can work on whichever one you prefer, or even both and the data are saved in the same place. So people often ask us “Why two apps?”

The reason behind this is that when designing Drillysis we wanted it to be both accessible from anywhere while being convenient for all types of users. Furthermore, we wanted to focus on the ease of use. So we decided to implement it on both platforms. Continue reading “A Web and a Windows app?”
