Baby steps. That’s what analysts term the patient yet nonetheless progressive movement of any market’s acceptance of new technologies, tools and services.
To provide detailed information on trends in laser scanning among surveying professionals, BNP Media’s market research division again worked with the staff of POB magazine to develop and conduct an annual market study. And just who did we learn from? Again with our 2015 study, the overwhelming majority of respondents — 70 percent of laser scanning equipment users and 82 percent of non-users — either approve or recommend their companies’ equipment purchases. These levels are consistent with those in 2014. Of these study respondents, 83 percent of users and 94 percent of non-users have at least 10 years’ experience. In others words, it’s a good group … responsibly taking baby steps.
