How to justify the use of 3D laser scanning for your business

When investigating new tools for our business, the first thing that we are asked by upper management is “What is the justification for the cost?” The capabilities of laser scanning technology have come a long way since their birth. Now, 3D laser scanning technology can be used on a whole host of projects from small to large. Companies can take advantage of 3D laser scanning technology to provide accurate and high-definition data that can be used for renovations, pre-project planning, measurements of hard to reach areas, and much more. At Hive Virtual Plant, we take great pride in the state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning equipment and software by Leica Geosystems that we use to serve our valued clients.

Consider the question

As a  business owner considering the use of 3D laser scanning for your project, you must ask yourself, “What is the cost of not accomplishing the goal?” Can you lose customers because you can’t respond to the market? Will downtime impact your sales because you can’t meet your demand? When you find the answers to these important questions, chances are, you will find a reason to use 3D laser scanning equipment to help complete the project. 

Assess your situation

As a business owner about to undergo large projects that will affect operations, it is important to understand the situation at hand. Firstly, assess your need for 3D laser scanning. How will you apply it? Some common applications for 3D laser scanning include reverse engineering, pre-project planning, land surveying, measuring overhead clearances, measuring material piles, and much more. Secondly, identify what your turnaround time is for your project. Do you need the project completed as soon as possible because you will have to shut down your operations, or can you keep your operations running at a lower capacity in order to accommodate the project at hand? 3D laser scanning provides accurate data very quickly, so depending on what type of business you are running, the use of this technology can be justified more or less. 

At Hive Virtual Plant, we can provide your company with high-quality 3D laser scanning for your project. If you are looking to learn more about this innovative technology and how you can justify the use of it, then we encourage you to get in touch with one of our representatives today.
