Following Derek Whatling’s retirement and a financial review of the Flintshire office, the directors of tsaADVET have decided to close the Flintshire office. Administrative functions will now be undertaken by the Stokesley office.
We see significant cost savings and administrative efficiencies in this move and therefore a better service for our clients. We don’t envisage any disruptions to the smooth running of the business and we look forward to continuing our strong working relationship with all our clients.
All telephone calls and post will automatically be redirected from Flintshire to the Stokesley office, but please take note of the following details for use in all future correspondence.

Tata Steel order more CAB-i-NET Browser licences so additional employees located around the large integrated Scunthorpe site can easily search, view and print their drawings and documents. Fast access to these are a vital for the 24/7 support and maintenance activities for steel production on the site.
Tata Steel has now deployed several thousand CAB-i-NET licences across the whole of the UK and has been a customer of tsaADVET for more than twenty years.
Derek Whatling, one of the founders of tsaADVET, will retire on 31st December 2012 after several decades of service. He took a step back from the commercial side of the business at the end of June 2012 leaving it in the hands of his son Andrew.
We wish him well in his retirement and hope he enjoys the free time to persue hobbies including flying, travelling and spending more time with his family that is spreadout around the globe.
tsaADVET have been working with Atkins Rail to make the assembling and tracking of bid documents easier. These tend to be made up of many different documents but need to be assembled into one PDF document for client handover. Currently this is a time consuming manual process and has to be repeated for each document revision.
By working jointly on ideas a specification has been developed and CAB-i-NET is to be developed to streamline this process by changes to the core code for both CAB-i-NET Explorer and Workflow modules. These changes will be included in a future release scheduled for Q2 in 2013.
Signalling Solutions order more CAB-i-NET Explorer licences and Workflow Servers as part of the expansion of CAB-i-NET across the UK. CAB-i-NET is being implemented for managing documentation and design data across their various offices allowing fast and efficient use of the resources available, ensuring control of standards and implementing standard workflow practices.
tsaADVET have been invited to attend the annual BIPS Conference in Denmark on the 10-11th September where we will be demonstrating and presenting the CAB-i-NET Suite of products to the conference attendees.
BIPS develop common digital structures and standards for language, concepts, methods, exchange formats and other tools and supports the implementation and use as de facto standards in building and construction.

CAB-i-NET already supports the same keyword or attribute being updated on all drawing sheets in a MicroStation™ or AutoCAD™ file. This is particularly useful for completing drawing title blocks saving designers time manually completing them.
Atkins Denmark has requested that CAB-i-NET handle multi-sheet files having different titles on the CAD drawing sheets. The development will be along the lines of a document record being able to have a number of child records similar to the principle of a book containing a number of chapters etc. The development will be done in the core CAB-i-NET code base and therefore be available to any customer through simple configuration at no extra cost later in the year.
Many CAB-i-NET customers use Microsoft Visio for simple drawings like sketches, network diagrams, flow charts etc. CAB-i-NET now supports the linking of keywords / attributes from the database directly into the drawing. Automatic publishing to a PDF file through a CAB-i-NET Workflow and optional stamping of the Approvers details into the file, is also supported. tsaADVET have worked with Atkins UK on developing this functionality into the core of CAB-i-NET.
