Introduction from Phil
I got involved in the development of engineering survey software as graduate civil engineer. After working as Site Engineer on my year out for O’Rourke’s on the Blue Water shopping centre, my final year project at Loughborough University was focussed on virtual reality software and its uses for construction applications. This inspired me to take a slightly non-conventional career path which led me to Apps in CADD, where I have since lived out my ideal career.
Although I am now the Managing Director of Apps In CADD, I am still heavily involved in supporting our customers directly. I don’t think I’ll ever let go of this part of my work. This direct contact with our users is what gives me a constant source of feedback so that we can adapt our products to meet the needs of the industry. It’s all the more satisfying for me because I know what it’s like to be on a construction site with a practical need to use software to make the job go more smoothly.
I love the fact that when a customer comes to us with a new problem to be solved, we can solve it. Instead of saying ‘computer says no’, it gives us an opportunity to create a solution which will not only solve the customer’s immediate problem but will then be available for everyone in the industry to benefit from. Our software means that site engineers, and in fact anyone involved with ground modelling or digital models, can be more productive and efficient and in many cases accomplish tasks which are not possible with industry standard drafting and drawing packages.
We are excited to be part of the Digital Transformation through Leaders project and are looking forward to raising awareness about the power and flexibility of engineering surveying software and working with Industry Partners and other Expert Partners to support the industry through the digital revolution which has already gathered momentum over the last few years. This project is an opportunity for us to make sure that no companies are left behind because of their size or current capabilities or level of awareness of digital solutions.
