Task:
Personnel Relocation Planning
Plus or Minus specialises in providing fee based spaceplanning services centred around the principle of Spatial Organisation - the discipline of defining and managing an accommodation model that is appropriate for the capital investment, culture and operational performance of the client’s workplace.

The Problem

Plus or Minus required a means of calculating travelling time and distance from various locations, defined by Postcode, to a number of prospect locations.

The output was required in support of client projects, particularly in line with logistical support for personnel relocation, reconfiguration projects and day-to-day churn support.

The data and processing needed to be completed quickly and use a reliable travel-time and distance methods formula.

The Solution

Plus or Minus first contacted Geoplan in 2009 with a requirement to provide a set of travel time and distance calculations from a number of base Postcodes to a number of potential locations.

Geoplan GIS Consultancy service was used to process the data and provide the output in a tabular format.

Since 2009, Plus or Minus regularly use Geoplan Consultancy services to produce similar travel-time analysis output in support of client projects.

The service is provided on a ‘by the hour’ basis giving Plus or Minus the flexibility to send work as and when required, for quick processing and delivery.

The Benefits

  • Flexible by the hour service means costs are kept to a minimum.
  • Reliable and fast quote and supply process resulting in confidence of results and service itself.
  • Right first time, to budget and to schedule- every time ensuring high confidence for Plus or Minus and associated clients.
Use of the Geoplan consultancy service for the required outputs means we can be confident in not only the results, but the speed in which they are quoted and delivered. We have worked with Geoplan for nearly 3 years and find the service and support to be of a consistently high quality.
