Land and Property Information (LPI) is a division of the Department of Finance, Service and Innovation, and the key provider of land information services in New South Wales. LPI connects individuals, businesses, government agencies and non profit organisations to a comprehensive package of land and property services including land title registration, property information, valuation, surveying and mapping.
LPI introduced flat-screen monitors as an occupational health and safety measure for those staff members who had special requirements. LPI engaged Atdec to equip its Sydney-based head office with single-arm mounts for the monitors and continued to use Atdec’s solutions for various fit-outs over the following decade due to its reliability and competitive pricing.
More recently, as part of a refurbishment and to meet the changing needs of the business, LPI upgraded all workstations in the dealing and plan examination areas with dual screen configurations.
Andrew Brooks, team leader of Administration and Support in Document Registration Services said,
“Workstations in the dealing and plan areas were originally fitted with single-arm mounts of a competing brand, however they were not stable enough to support the two flat screens required for each workstation.”
“Staff now need sufficient screen space to view a high volume of graphics and the flexibility to change the orientation of the screen when required, particularly in the plan examination area.” Mr Brooks continued, “Staff who directly serve the public and professional clients require an open, transparent feel and staff need to appear available. LPI needed a solution that would lift the monitors off the desktops so they could be seen by and shared with customers.”
LPI installed 125 of Atdec’s Visidec Focus Articulated Arm Double and 15 of Atdec’s Visidec Focus Articulated Arm Single at the start of 2008. Atdec’s Visidec Focus Articulated Arm Double is an ergonomically designed product that enables monitor flexibility, glare control and more efficient use of workstation space. Its configuration options include side-by- side or back-to- back, and feature portrait/landscape rotation.
Mr Brooks said,
“The flexibility of the double arm lets staff have more direct eye contact with customers and share on-screen information easily, creating a more transparent office space. The portrait/landscape rotation also enables greater flexibility and productivity in the plans area of the office.”
LPI also installed the TELEHOOK TH-3070- CTW Back to Back ceiling mount in its reception area following its purchase of two Samsung 40” LCD flat screens. The Back to Back unit supports two displays up to 91kg (200 pounds) each and features horizontal and tilt adjustment, a telescopic pole that enables adjustable distance from the ceiling to the centre of the display, and 360º rotation.
Mr. Brooks concluded:
“The sleek, modern appearance of the Atdec mounts reflects LPI’s status as a technologically advanced world leader in land information and management.”
