Grounds Maintenance Information System

The GMIS system, developed in conjunction with our Local Government clients, uses Microsoft Access and MapInfo Professional to aid in the storage, management, recall, analysis and display of Grounds Maintenance information. Standard reports and Bills of Quantity are produced from the Access database which can easily be enhanced by the user for specific or ad-hoc reports whilst the mapping is held in MapInfo for geographical storage, manipulation and output. The data is an open format which may be exported to third party software packages.

Access to the multi-user GMIS system is fully protected by a self contained password system that works in addition to any network imposed security restrictions.

"Our experience with CDR Group has proved them to be highly professional and competent in the development of bespoke MapInfo-Access solutions to Local Government needs."

Simon Seal, Leisure Development Officer, North Lincolnshire Council
