Dear BEIMS User,

For centuries men and women have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer.

So it is with great cheer that we bring you the holiday edition of BEIMS News. Wrapped up in this edition you will find fresh insights into BEIMS through the first of our HowTo guides and our latest developments, the BEIMS Visitor Registration System and pocketBEIMS Remote Request.

Also worthy of great attention is the 2010 BEIMS International User Group Meeting (IUGM). Packages and Schedules for the IUGM have been released, and bookings will commence shortly.

On a final note BEIMS has, on behalf of its clients, donated a gift to those in need through OxFam Unwrapped. Families of ducks, goats, water purifying jars and a reticulated water system were selected as a substitute to sending out printed cards this year.

All the very best for a safe and enjoyable season and new year,

The BEIMS Team.

BEIMS is on Track
Recently, BEIMS has been privileged enough to be selected to work with a very exciting and prestigious organisation.

Yas Marina Pit Complex

Earlier last month BEIMS helped the island of Abu-Dhabi and the Yas Marina Circuit hold their first Formula One Grand Prix, the seventeenth and final race of the 2009 calendar. The US$1.3 Billion Arabian version of the glamorous Monaco is based around a marina, and includes a theme park, water park, as well as residential areas, hotels and beaches.

The circuit is the largest permanent sports venue lighting project in the world, thus relies heavily on BEIMS Material Management System (MMS).


Keeping track of visitors with BEIMS Visitor Registration System
BEIMS Visitor Registration System (VRS) is a web based module that provides an easy way to keep track of visitors and contractors moving throughout a site on a daily basis. The VRS easily captures whether a visitor is onsite, records their details and brings up a list of buildings to see where they will be carrying out work.


Along with Flinders University (SA), BEIMS has given the system a thorough field test. Mark Moses of Flinders University discusses the design, developmental challenges and resulting outcomes of the initial VRS implementation:
