Four Tips to Select the Best Software for Geospatial Surveying & Engineering Professionals


We often hear from geospatial survey & engineering professionals that they’re still using spreadsheets and paper to keep track of projects, surveys, customers, create quotes and more. Does this sound familiar to you, too?

In a world where you can order anything to your doorstep with a couple taps on your phone, it’s time to take your business to the next level and upgrade your geospatial surveying & engineering software.

In a conversation with Kompass BMS, a comprehensive business management software platform built for geospatial, engineering, and construction companies, Briana Lorber-Winget of Texas Professional Surveying provided her top tips for selecting the best software for these professionals:

  1. Do your research: Understand the challenges you’re trying to solve and look for a solution that addresses as many of them as possible. Make sure the new software is created for your specific business and industry, is easy to integrate and intuitive to use.
  2. Plan for change: Create a transition plan and appoint an internal person or team to champion the project internally. Create a timeline for implementation that provides the least amount of disruption to your business and serving customers. Conduct a test run, take time to train employees, and get rolling!
  3. Prioritize: Determine which systems and processes should be moved to Kompass BMS first. Collaborate with your implementation team to determine the most pressing or costly issues and tackle them first.
  4. Educate and inform:  Ensure all team members – from office to the field – understand the value of a new system and the full potential of what they do to improve how people work together and communicate every day. Focus on training and education to get the most out of Kompass BMS – and rely on that point person and the Kompass team to lead the way.
