WHO WE ARE
Our people love to talk about valves, fittings and the best way to drain storm water. And that’s exactly how we like it. We come from over 100 years of public sector experience so we know the challenges you face. And that’s exactly why we came together to form Beehive Industries—to create a solution that simplifies your world.
Before our software geeks wrote a line of code, we sat down with people like you who do what you do. We watched, we listened and we asked questions. The outcome is a business that works for your community, built by people who live in the public world of maps, GIS, assets, infrastructure, data, public works and public utilities. And that will never change.
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT
We’re all about making your life easier, so as we wrestled with the details of how to best tell you our story, it came down to three little words: Simple. Powerful. Flexible. Why? Well, because it defines our approach perfectly. Read through our reasoning—we think you’ll agree.
Simply put, we’ve built a simple solution for a complex world. That’s always been our mission and it holds no expiration date.
We don’t want your first experience with Beehive to be a long, painful implementation, so we do everything we can to share the risk and take over the heavy lifting.
You need to get work done no matter where you are, and you don’t need to worry about counting users or licensing. Done and done. You can access Beehive from a PC, laptop, or mobile device.
You and your team wear multiple hats and your software should look good in all of them. Regardless of what you explore, Beehive remains the same. So, learning curves are, well, straight.
You make the best judgment calls, not your software. Beehive gets the information you need to make those calls and then document them. Adapt us to your needs, not the other way around.
Our framework is built to handle the most complex asset management challenges. We designed it to accommodate anything–large or small–so regardless of application it can do what you need it to do.
Slow software makes you want to scream. That’s why we designed Beehive from the ground up for performance, regardless of size.
We won’t get into the details too much, but we will tell you Beehive is built on multiple cloud-based technologies to deliver performance and consistent availability so you don’t need to worry about downtime.
IN THE FUTURE
Our solutions were built, and continue to be refined, on the latest technology so you never need to worry about getting stuck in the past. Your experience and our innovation equal ongoing improvement.
IN PLAYING NICE
You don’t need to be pushed around by data. Too many vendors hide your data from you or trap you in proprietary formats. By using open standards, Beehive ensures that ALL of your data, including GIS data, is available in defined and open formats. This means you can access it with the best tools, even if those tools don’t come from Beehive.
TO YOUR NEEDS
Our software allows for simple configurations to mirror the way you work. We can provide master lists of materials, standard diameters, permit types, fee formulas, etc., but as things in your community change, Beehive will adapt with you.
There are times you need more users and times you may need less, and that’s OK. We won’t limit users or access and we certainly don’t count seats.
We want to make purchasing Beehive easy so we packaged up licensing, hosting and support into one price, then we threw large upfront fees out the window and went modular. So you can buy only what you need and want to use when you need it and want to use it.
TO SIZE COMFORTABLY
To us, size doesn’t matter. From the largest community to the smallest department, Beehive works. We want to ensure you have exactly what you need. No more, no less.
TO OTHER DATA SOLUTIONS
We don’t close doors or hold you hostage. Beehive uses open standards like SQL and OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) to ensure you get to control your world. You can access data from general use tools like Microsoft Office to more specific use applications like ArcMap, AutoCAD and others.
