The package comes with a screen in the cab as well as a survey pole, allowing users to make simple site surveys and then load data directly into the machine. John Downey from the firm commented, “It’s aimed at use with small contractors or for utilities works.”

Productivity and quality can be improved using the system as operators can work closely to job specifications, allowing jobs to be completed more speedily and without a need to carry out reworking.

The system allows work data to be recorded accurately from jobs such as repairs to utilities, meeting the latest requirements for digital records of work carried out. Downey commented that digital workflows are mandatory in Japan for all construction works, for example.  

The system has been available for six months in Japan and he said that it is proving popular with smaller contracting firms due to the need for accurate digital recording of job data.
