The Silicon Review
" Using technology developed over the last 20 years by measuring and drawing thousands of locations worldwide, the LaZerCAD team measures, draws and deploys As-Built CAD and 360 Photographic data directly to your desktop or mobile device – accessible, anywhere, anytime, online.”
Headquartered in Agoura Hills, CA, USA, LaZerCAD LLC does as-built surveys & 360 photography programs direct for clients, their architects, design teams, real estate teams and construction professionals from industries that include retail, banking, restaurants, quick-service restaurants, grocery, education, utilities, hospital and other sectors.
Knowing that there was a void in the market for accurate and quality as-built CAD services with 360 photography, as well as a Cloud delivery system, Michael Axon started LaZerCAD in 2011 to fill that void and help retail clients across the US and internationally. The company provides as-built surveying services with a unique client delivery via a “Cloud” based solution, the only On-Demand, Cloud Based delivery system in the market.
“We specialize in measuring/data collection in busy retail space environments for all industries including banking, retail, restaurant, utilities, education, big box, fashion, and other sectors, big and small,” said Michael. “Our data collection includes completed as-built floor plans, architecture elements, RCP, elevations, 360 degree photos and fully dimensioned Auto CAD drawings. All of which can be accessed anywhere, anytime via the internet utilizing a PC, MAC, Android, iPhone, iPad or any mobile device,” he added.
The Differentiating Factor
Most survey companies are regional or do not have the resources nationally and their delivery systems are very traditional. With a large national network of surveyors, LaZerCAD ramps up quickly and efficiently for any size survey program and ensures faster turnaround times than its competitors with complete CAD and PDF deliverables. The company’s Cloud delivery system offers a unique and organized way to manage your CAD.
In fact, LaZerCAD’s custom, secure As Built Cloud™ program is head and shoulders above any other secure delivery system available in this market and is fast becoming a standard for Cloud CAD delivery systems. And it’s why national and international brand name retail clients are identifying LaZerCAD as their premier As-Built data collection partner.
Continuous Research & Development
The company is continually researching and investing in the latest as-built technology. Its survey teams have their kit updated to the fastest most effective hardware every 12 months. Software updates for the survey team and its cloud based solution come every 6 months due to client feedback and the ongoing commitment to invest in technology by the CEO and executive team.LaZerCAD has grown to be one of the largest as-built survey companies in the US.
The Client Spectrum
The company’s target customers belong to verticals such as Banking, Restaurant, Grocery, and Retail sectors. LaZerCAD works with many national retail clients such as Bank of America, McDonalds, Kroger, Visionworks, Chick-Fil-A, Chase, Ruby Tuesday and many others. It also works with their architects and management companies such as Gensler, CallisonRTKL, CBRE and JLL, and many others.
For the future, Michael, with his IT team and Infrastructure Director, will continue to work on better client facing Cloud processes as well as their own CRM and VRM (Vendor Relationship Management tool) and other areas of interest. The company is also ramping up its international UK team.
