The application's conceptual site design capabilities are unmatched. SITEOPS helps decision makers compare multiple "what if" scenarios by delivering design options and cost data months earlier in the land development process. Single Pad 3.0 adds more drawing tools, making conceptual drawings that much easier to generate.

New features include:

-- Ability to import conceptual design sketches as underlay images for design reference

-- Added security options to make project sharing easier

-- New drawing tools for instantly adding pre-cast objects in basic shapes

-- New quick add tools for drawing drives, landscape areas, out-parcels, etc.

-- Improved importer filtering to remove garbage data and flag problem areas

-- Enhanced certified LandXML support to improve interoperability with other applications

Every SITEOPS customer already has access to these new features thanks to the SaaS model.
