LGS logo web REVIEW: Leica Geosystems ScanStation C10 and Cyclone 7On Sepember 1, 2009, Leica Geosystems and Point of Beginning Magazine hosted a webinar titled The Business of Laser Scanning — hype or competitive advantage? Presenters Michael Harvey and Frank Hahnel along with Kristi Grahl discussed using laser scanning technology to:

  • Submit more competitive bids — and win more jobs — for both high-end projects and routine surveys.
  • Meet the requirements of customers who increasingly incorporate HDS into their project specifications.
  • Lower your labor costs and increase profit margins on every job.
  • Increase customer satisfaction with more accurate and detailed surveying reports.

During the webinar, the presenters also announced the availability of Leica’s new ScanStation C10 self-contained time-of-flight 3D laser scanner along with Cyclone 7, Cloudworx for SmartPlant3D and Forensic Map.
