There seems to be a split when it comes to remotely working from home. For many businesses, lockdown has proven to save time and money. That’s because there are no long travel periods for staff to get to and from the office. What’s more, travel subsidies are no longer needed.
Beyond this, accessible communication and planning tools are largely available as requested. Even when working with complex as built 2D drawings and 3D BIM models, our team has been able to keep in touch and produce your deliverable in any requested format. That means we can effectively transfer more savings onto our customers, and continue delivering high-quality 3D point cloud, as-built 2D drawings and 3D BIM Revit models!
Time saved in travelling to and from the office means that some firms are in prime positions to take on more projects. It also means that, through digital working, they can apply more time and scope to existing projects. That, of course, is only ever going to be beneficial for consumers!
There may still be occasions where in-house or on-site working are required. For example, at Cambridge Measured Survey, we still need to physically access client sites for 3D laser scanning.
However, much of the digital working we undertake (i.e. the finer points of a measured building survey) is flexible enough to travel off-site. This is largely thanks to technological advances made available to 3D content studios. We’re able to transfer measurement data via laser scanners into the cloud, before accessing, editing and scaling off-site.
This is hugely beneficial to our clients and customers, too. As a responsible 3D laser scanning company, we want to ensure that our contacts have access to all they need for future planning they can rely on.
The best technology for working remotely can help to break down timing and cost problems that may sometimes choke productivity. While not all businesses or managers may adjust to such tech immediately, it’s clear that trends are going to continue far beyond the coronavirus being suppressed.
In the post-COVID world, you won’t necessarily need to have a team on-site at all times to help prepare your building project. At Cambridge Measured Survey, we are always more than happy to help ensure you get accurate measurements and support remotely – in line with the safety measures we’ve all learned over the past year.
