Hallam cuts build time with eScript

Hallam Land Management has shaved a third off development time for a web-based workflow application by using a modular framework.

The land management workflow application was developed using Progress Software's eScript Quick Start programme, which is based on modular code and consulting services. The application was built in-house by Hallam, a subsidiary of construction company Henry Boot.

It provides information and alerts about options, purchases and planning permissions on land acquired for development. Staff can access the application via a browser on their laptops, and the firm is working on PDA access.

IT project manager Alan Ward said, "After initial training in how to use the framework, Progress helped us to build the application, returning on-site to check progress, impart more expertise and ensure that we achieved our project goals."

"In addition we have integrated the application with the accounting system to associate costs with the different stages of purchasing, taking options on land and overcoming the difficulties of site development."
