Podcast: How to Get the Construction Technology You Need Without Breaking Your Budget

Laser scanners and robotic total stations are essential tools in construction today as the industry transitions to digital workflows. But how can you invest in the technology you need without adversely affecting your company’s budget? “One of the things that kills a construction company faster than anything is a cash flow problem,” says Matt Wheelis, global business development lead for Building Construction at Leica Geosystems. “So whenever you’re thinking about any investment, whether it’s a hammer drill, tractor, laser scanner or total station, it’s important to look at the additional revenue or cost savings it will give you and then compare that to ways of paying for it. Paying upfront might not always be the best option.”

In this ConTechCrew podcast, Wheelis outlines several smart strategies for technology financing. He also shares why contractors are so intrigued by the new Leica iCON iCR 70 and 80 total stations, iCON build 4.0 software, and the Leica RTC360 laser scanner. Additionally, he provides insights on how Leica Geosystems and Multivista fit into Hexagon, a global leader in digital solutions that create Autonomous Connected Ecosystems (ACE).
