How much does the system cost?

IMIS is a system that can be supplied at a basic technical data entry level or at a comprehensive fully integrated automated business solution level.

Every client has a different mix of needs and priorities. They also have different numbers of land parcels, or infrastructure items. Some of the data they have is in a clean useable condition, and some of it is not and needs a lot of work to get it ready

The price can differ hugely from one client to the next, and is calculated specifically for each client, based on a number of factors that must first be investigated. Such as the specific needs and requirements, the capacity and capability of the client.

How long will it take to implement the system?

Again this is a client specific issue, and TGIS first needs to know:

  • Which modules and sub-modules will be implemented?
  • What data is available and useable?
  • What data must we create or capture or clean?
  • How many people will be trained on each module and to what level?

As a rough guide a comprehensive implementation of multiple modules will be phased over a number of months, or possibly even years. This is decided by discussion and agreement with the client.

Is the IMIS system applicable to the private sector?

Yes the IMIS system can and is used by the private sector. Depending on the nature of your industry only certain modules will be of use to you. The system was built to be scalable to enable the system to unlock value in all enterprises. All enterprises require document management, a central communications hub, as well as a work flow process being followed based on the organisational structure, while some will require the land management aspects.

Is IMIS user friendly?

IMIS is totally user friendly. IMIS has been refined over many years, to simplify not only the interface but also the process used. With the proper training in place all users should be capable to perform the required functions in order to speed up and simplify their work.

My place of employment already has the best of breed applications, why should we get IMIS and effectively own two of each type of software?

The answer to this question is a three part answer. Firstly best of breed applications are targeted at a specific action/process, these are useful to only those who need this function or whom know how to make it work. They require specialists to operate them and special training is needed. They are also more expensive than integrated solutions once factoring in training and licensing.

Secondly the silo effect is exasperated by each department using their own software running on unique platforms. As knowledge transfer now requires additional licences to move information between departments this is seen as a hassle. There are a variety of issues with compatibility, ease of use and licensing to mention a few. Integrating enterprises to work as a whole by removing internal barriers is essential to effective performance and service delivery. 

Thirdly once a integrated system such as IMIS is in use, the specialists are able to perform their specialised roles while still providing basic usage to general users, which circumvents many licensing issues. Once a user is trained on the use of the system, they can intuitively begin to use other functions/modules as they understand how the interface operates. This does not exclude specialists from using the best of breed applications where necessary as long as they can then merge their data sets back into the system. IMIS has been developed to easily integrate additional software suites.
