The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has partnered with content management provider Jadu to improve the performance of its online information resource for the property industry.

The Isurv knowledge base enables property professionals to access a library of legislative, official and practical information using any web-enabled device.

"Our aim is to provide professionals with the most useful and reliable information about property and construction practice wherever they need it," said Tim Robinson, director of strategic business development at RICS.

RICS partnered with Jadu to increase the speed and reduce the time and cost of updating the Isurv service.

The Jadu system enables RICS to access Isurv directly without having to go through a third party. This means legislative changes can be updated in minutes to provide the latest guidelines as soon as possible to surveyors working on site.

"Property professionals are experienced in using the web as a resource and they expect a certain level of service, which our previous system could not deliver," said James Robinson, electronic publishing project manager at RICS.
