“If I buy it, I might not be able to use it”
From my experience, the stigma attached to upgrading or even starting to use new technology is often the fear of not being able to use it. New technologies emerge regularly that we feel we need to master to succeed and at times it can be intimidating.
At Hitechniques we want to turn the tide when it comes to companies deciding to move on to the next level in measurement technology by guiding them through each step of the way.
If you want to learn we will get you there.
How can we do that?
Well, let me show you a real-life example.
This week an engineer from a site in Galway called me up and said that he has been looking into setting out his site himself and wants to have a look at what kind of equipment we can offer him.
After asking a few questions on what he is building, I picked a unit and went through what he needs. Based on his site criteria we made the choice between GNSS Rover and Robotic Total station work.
I suggested we use the GeoMax Zenith35 PRO TAG GNSS Rover since he was just starting to set out foundations and groundworks around his site. It is our flagship GNSS rover and the most popular system to learn with all the up to date technology at your fingertips, quick connection and great accuracy that cuts the stake out time down to minutes rather than hours.
Our demonstration was an introduction to the various functions and guide through the workflow. I showed the customer how to record and save data, stake-out and even create surface for volume calculation. The tutorials explained how to get through all the different functions, navigating through the site and the software. I also demonstrated how to create and choose from the code list in X-PAD software to start the customer with the important discipline of coding and essentially creating the right layer for the right survey description.
We finished up with answering the questions that came up during the demonstration.
With all that the customer was able to make a well-informed decision and opted to purchase a unit straight away, knowing he could now execute the basic functions and was able to transfer the survey from tablet to his PC and forward to his design engineer for further site development.
After a 2 hours demonstration on a Tuesday morning the customer was able to choose his new equipment with the confidence that he’ll be able to use it and it will suit his immediate needs as well as long-term goals for his own and company's progression.
A someone who has worked in the construction industry for over 15 years myself, I know how important it is to be able to utilize the latest technology. And I believe that with proper guidance, you can successfully pick the instrument that will be the best fit for you and your company.
