Surveying companies often struggle with timely payments due to a slow approval process on the client's side. In some cases it might even be taking weeks to complete. They currently use Google Drive, WeTransfer, flash drives and mail to deliver their point clouds, orthomosaics, DSM/DTM, CAD drawings, geophysical data, PDFs, and Excel reports. The size of the projects can often be over 10 GB, requiring clients to first download the data, find compatible software, review, and provide feedback.
Another important aspect is that a surveying company may not need cloud storage all year long, but only during a project period of several weeks.
To address these issues, we developed ATLAS Cloud, which helps survey companies to deliver results to their customers easily and efficiently.
To speed up project approval by three times, the solution is to present all data to the client on a single, web-based platform accessible through a browser. This eliminates the need for downloading data or investing in expensive GIS/CAD software to view project results. Our clients, who primarily use Pix4D, Metashape, and Bentley for in-house photogrammetry processing, appreciate that we respect their choice and only offer data sharing, not cloud processing.
