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 Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

gotoplaceAnother man year of development has been completed on HoleBASE SI since the last release 4 months ago and although most of the development resources have been directed into the new Template Studio and Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D upgrade, the team at Keynetix have again managed to include a whole host of features and functions that make this exciting product even more valuable.


“This is another major step forward for our vision for HoleBASE SI” said Roger Chandler, Keynetix Managing Director “the inclusion of the additional mapping functionality and the project management features will enable even more organisations to benefit from the new project management capabilities and use HoleBASE SI more for the tender and desk study phase of their projects.  With the inclusion of the Template Studio package and the upgrade to Civil Extension due out very soon it has been a busy period for the HoleBASE SI team and we are all very excited with these important upgrades.”

As always new releases of HoleBASE SI are available free of charge to all our current HoleBASE SI Maintenance Agreement holders.  If you do not currently have a Maintenance Agreement, contact Sales to ensure you get the exclusive benefits our Maintenance Contracts provide.

Project Management

The project metadata can now be extended to include user definable fields and pick lists.  This allows users to extend the capabilities of the HoleBASE SI project management system to include internal variables that are important to them, such as project value or invoice date.

The Data Entry Module

The new features in this release are integration of bulk update with automatic column selection, integration of document management including Shortcut Key Support [CTRL] + [D] for adding documents and streamlined workflow including retaining previous document selections.

Mapping Enhancements (Professional Version Only)

Geo-location services integration including zoom to co-ordinate, search/zoom to place (Town, POI, Street, Postcode etc); a site plan generation (template drive) with user defined scaled output and title.

Configuration Management

The new build has better pick list and trigger level management as well as the ability to import and export all components between installations.  This allows users to set up configuration elements on one installation and then transfer these elements to any other installation.

As well as the features listed above, you can also bulk import project data to include all default AGS project meta data from the PROJ group.  The .CSV input now accepts .ZIP files (in addition to individual .CSV files) containing multiple HoleBASE SI compliant .CSV files.
