State-of-the-art geotechnical knowledge management

HoleBASE SI will help you stay in control of your geotechnical project data and streamline reporting throughout every stage of a site investigation.

HoleBASE SI Standard allows you to produce your logs, data and reports quickly and easily. Its multiple import formats and customisable data entry profiles allow your team to enter the data only once, whether onsite or back in the office. It’s scalable and affordable to both small independent contractors and large multinational consultants.

HoleBASE SI Professional extends the functionality of HoleBASE SI Standard with the addition of Integrated GIS, Sections, Data Triggers and a licence of the HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel. These additional features extend HoleBASE SI from a reporting system to a planning and analysis tool.
