CHC Navigation and Surveyour expand their presence on the Dutch market
CHCNAV GNSS solutions for surveying and construction have been used in Europe for more than a decade. Their popularity among surveyors in the Benelux is supported by CHCNAV's distributor, Surveyour, which offers reliable and high quality GNSS solutions at a proper price point. The Surveyour team speaks the language of the user, which enables them to provide solid support and expert advice on the product.
Read below the full story of The People Group which has selected CHCNAV GNSS receivers for use in their projects.
The People Group confidently chooses Surveyour GPS measuring equipment!
The People Group's growing Geo & Data department employs specialist surveyors with years of experience. Accurate surveying and optimum quality control are essential, especially in complex infrastructural projects. The People Group is therefore switching to Surveyour's advanced GNSS solution.
Danny Wouters, director Geo & Data of The People Group, gives as main reasons the possibility to check measurement data directly in the field using an open system. In addition, he is very satisfied with the level of support from the company.
Ease of use and precision
Barend Hermans, project and team leader at The People Group | Geo & Data: "We have tested the Surveyour GPS extensively and are very satisfied with its quality. In addition, the very familiar Windows system makes all operations of our field specialists extremely easy and accurate to perform. We also have the possibility to design our own applications, which enables us to provide the highest quality to our customers. Good GPS reception is very important to work efficiently.”
Eddie Dekkers, surveyor at The People Group | Geo & Data, can confirm that: "The Surveyour system starts up easily and the GPS rover with CHC navigation receiver quickly provides a reliable fix position as well as good reception. As the software uses different satellite systems, we have an extremely accurate position.”
Dekkers says about the ease of use: " Using the tablet, we have the drawings and measurement data at our fingertips. We can even measure multiple features simultaneously in the same session." adds Hermans: "Quality control is very important to us. As all the data appears clearly on the screen, the surveyor can immediately check the measurements made.”
Everyone is very pleased with the fast and efficient service: "Surveyour can - if necessary - take control of all units from their workplace and directly supervise or take actions. It gives them a real advantage over their competitors". Wouters is enthusiastic about the associated software: "Creating, editing, managing and presenting the geo-information can easily be done on various computer systems thanks to Surveyour's software.”
Currently, two Surveyour systems are in use and Wouters has decided to purchase five GPS robbers and a total station early next year. " We are now participating in inner-city projects in Rotterdam and The Hague. Demanding high profile projects where the combination of a good RTK fix and speed is a must. " Surveyour's equipment comes extremely useful in these projects, because we can also count on a fantastic GPS positioning accuracy in the city centre," concludes Wouters.
