Studio Survey V1 Official Release
We are excited to announce that our open pit surveying solution, Studio Survey has now officially released! After realising a gap in our underground suite of products, our Survey Product Manager Ben Vagg and the development team have worked tirelessly to build it from scratch to now finally releasing version 1.1 to the public.
Building the solution on top of the robust Studio platform gives Studio Survey great advantages as it leverages existing technology that is used and trusted in many mine sites around the world. Working alongside many test sites, we took all user feedback very seriously and aimed to make sure the solution was well-rounded enough to meet industry standards but also unique enough to cover acute problems on-site that Surveyors realistically face every day. Studio Survey now sits within our underground solution suite and integrates with many of our other products such as Studio OP to give the most seamless and undisturbed technology experience.
What was the development process like?
In order to maximise the functionalities and efficiencies of Studio Survey, we first had to look at our existing solutions and see which existing functions Surveyors used on a daily basis. This would form part of the solution’s foundation. With this foundation set in stone, our team could then step back and take a further look at any gaps in the software that need to be filled to get it to an industry-wide standard. Once we had a robust and solid product that we knew could hold its own within the market, we then continued to perform comprehensive research and brainstorming to define functionality that would not only solve our customers’ pain points but is also not available on the market today. The whole process had its ups and downs but we believe that through strict quality assurance processes and working closely with test sites, that Studio Survey is truly in a league of its own.

What are Ben’s personal thoughts on Studio Survey?
“I really believe Studio Survey is the complete package for all open pit surveyors as it has the ability to go from start to finish of processing your survey data on one ribbon without having to search through a massive tool box of icons to find the ones you need. It’s refreshing to see a dedicated, standalone package that has been specifically customised for open pit surveyors and not just some add-on or another menu in a much larger package.”
What are the next steps in 6-12 months like?
Ben will be working very closely with the developers and clients to continuously refine Studio Survey and build a pipeline of upcoming features and enhancements to improve its ease of use and speed of processing survey data. We do not believe in the stagnancy of technology, and are always finding new and improved ways to make our clients’ lives easier! This is only version 1.1, and with each iteration, we rely on our clients to bounce back ideas with us and tell us what their pain points are and what would make Studio Survey their on-site best friend.
