Customer Reviews

See how digital layout solutions have enhanced traditional workflows for your peers

“The very early return on investment on the equipment is being able to find conflicts within the drawings. If I find potential clashes that can impact cost and the schedule months in advance before our guys even get out there, it pays for itself. That in itself is worth the investment in the hardware and software.”

“On one of our most recent projects, a 30,000 square foot building, had a total of 1,027 points to set and one man working with the robot was able to do the work in two days. With our previous methods, that would have taken three days with a two-man crew. Especially on large buildings, that’s a very clear return on investment.”

“Our survey costs are lower because we’re not onsite as long, and the risk of rework is practically eliminated because of our high accuracy. Plus, our ability to provide the layout in a timely and accurate way enables the trades to do their work and stay on schedule. We all win.”
