A TAS Unity can be as simple or complex as you require. Implementation can range from:

  • From a 1 user cloud-based system with online and mobile access
  • Desktop GIS only, behind-the-firewall system
  • Hybrid implementation with a number of desktop GIS users and dozens, hundreds or even thousands of cloud-based online and mobile users

Best of all, you can start simple and grow over time.

To achieve maximum effectiveness, efficiency and security, TAS Unity:

  • Is configurable to support your existing real estate processes
  • Can integrate your own analytics and models
  • Allows control over who can see, do, and edit particular data and reports
  • Can connect to other systems behind your firewall to provide access to the business intelligence people need
  • Scales from one user to thousands
  • Let’s you use only the technologies you need - online, mobile, and/or desktop GIS
  • Let’s you define roles and assign users to them so people can see and do only what they need to
