A few comments from your arboricultural colleagues about OTISS.
“Ecus has used the OTISS tree survey modules for the past three years. We were initially attracted to the system by its simplicity and functionality. The OTISS system is highly customisable and simple to use and allows for efficient handling of large date sets with minimal fuss. OTISS Support provides excellent support with the use of the software and additional services such as uploading old survey data.”

Principal Arboricultural Consultant
“I have been using Otiss now for 3 months and this system has transformed the way I survey trees in terms of project set up, site assessment and report writing. The customizable screens allow you to gather the data that you require, and unusually with 3rd party software, you can change just about anything – on site the free text fields are especially useful. Support is 2nd to none with Paul showing how customer care should be delivered, he is currently working alongside a client’s GIS team with a view to importing in excess of 1.2k tree records into Otiss for me. Can’t believe I spent 6 months deliberating – just get it guys, you will not regret it!”

“OTISS is a flexible, efficient and easy to use system that has become an essential asset in the day-to-day operation of my company.
The customisable templates help create surveys tailored to my clients requirement and varying levels of required information and can be presented in multiple ways to make the essential information clear and easy to access. Should it be required, support is always quickly available.
I find the system extremely cost effective for the amount of time saved on and off site. I regularly recommend OTISS to my colleagues and associates in the industry.”

“RJ Tree Services Ltd have been using the OTISS tree survey app for 6 months or so now. It has really changed the way we work. The time it takes between carrying out the site work to submitting the survey has decreased significantly much to the delight of our clients.
OTISS is easy to use, and Paul is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and always willing to clarify points when asked.
RJ Tree Services Ltd uses the OTISS app on a weekly basis and would definitely recommend it.”

“We have used OTISS for years now and can gladly testify that it is a complete and very cost effective means of field data collection; entirely fit for planning or tree safety reports. There is sufficient customization built in to the data collection templates to accommodate individual client requirements. Data collection in the field is as easy as sending a text. The finished product is high quality and could stand alone or easily be incorporated into other report styles. Technical support has always been first class and exceptionally quick – it is like Paul is one of the team. We have never looked back or elsewhere.”

“Since moving all of our arboricultural survey work over to OTISS our workflow has improved. The flexibility and ease of use is a great asset in the field and the final plans and data output is excellent.
The main things for me is that if I ever need support, Intrinsica will work quickly to address it and with clarity. Above anything else it’s clearly designed by people who really understand trees and the needs of arboricultural surveyors without overloading and complicating matters when accuracy and efficiency is so important.”
