Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

CogsThis year’s user group meeting will be one of the most exciting user group meetings for HoleBASE SI users and we urge you to take this last opportunity to register if you have not already done so.

Every year the event gets bigger and better.  This year we are expecting more delegates, have more exhibitors and have a day that ensures that all areas of your business are covered.

So if you use HoleBASE SI why should you attend the User Group Meeting?

Here are our Top 5 reasons for HoleBASE SI Users to attend.


1) Try Two Amazing New Beta Products

The User Group will be the first opportunity to see previews of the latest Keynetix technology and product enhancements before they are released.  For HoleBASE SI users the two big previews being run all day long on our new Beta Bar are the replacement for our onsite logging system Pocket SI and some great new enhancements to the way 3D modelling will be done in the future.

There will also be plenty of discussions and demos during the day of new features that have been added to HoleBASE over the last 12 months and some exciting demonstrations on what is coming up in the next 12.


2) Catch Up and Make New Contacts

Since we combined the regional User Group Meetings into a single central event it has become one of the UK’s largest Site Investigation conferences and the only conference that includes the whole supply chain.  With plenty of time to meet new people and catch up with existing clients the UGM gives you an ideal opportunity to learn from others and we will even help to introduce you to any of the companies below.  The companies in bold are also exhibiting

3) Free Training

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn about data management best practices and Geotechnical BIM.  By being aware of industry trends and technology enhancements which will feature heavily throughout the day, you will be able to maximise the value of your Geotechnical data; by learning new skills and understanding how to get your software to work more efficiently, especially if you take advantage of speaking to our experts at the Software Advice Bar.  With speakers covering the day to day improvements you can make to your processes as well as the bigger picture there is something for everyone in this year’s UGM.

4) Be Inspired and Motivated

Sometimes it can be difficult to see the way forward when you are working on your own.  At the UGM you will have the opportunity to share experiences, transfer knowledge, generate ideas and see how other organisations are utilising our software, especially through seeing who’s up for awards and why; in the Keynetix Geotechnical Data Management Awards.  Not only this, but there are also dedicated Workshops covering Data Collection, Report Customisation, Sub Surface Modelling and Challenges of Sharing Data.

5) Provide Feedback

This annual event is your opportunity to suggest where you believe improvements should be made, discuss product enhancements with the team and get any of your questions answered by Keynetix staff at either the Software Advice Bar or Beta Bar.  Finally you’ll get the opportunity to influence the priority of the future of our products and services.
