ALS, P.ENG, Pinpoint Geomatics
" We implemented Cyanic Job Book about 6 months ago, and am delighted with the functionality, ease of use, and support we received from Cyanic. This is the first time in my career of over 35 years in the geomatics industry that I have been able to create accurate and detailed reports in real time.
In the past, I have always relied on reports generated from accounting staff, which are days or weeks behind. Having Job Book makes managing jobs so much easier and I have no idea how lived without it. "
