Trimble VRS Now – no base station required!

19 April 2021

“Trimble VRS Now can be summed up in a single word – reliability.”

Neil Jefferies, Greenhatch Group Director



There are many reasons why KOREC customers rate Trimble’s VRS Now Service but in all the years since it’s release, the top four haven’t changed at all – accuracy, flexibility, reliability and availability – all without the need for a base station set up.

All surveyors want to maximise their time on site and need confidence in the data they are collecting and if these basic requirements are compromised, we understand that they will take fast and efficient measures to rectify any issues that could affect hard won and carefully nurtured customer relationships. That’s why many customers of VRS Now have come to us having trialled other services previously.

Trimble VRS Now subscribers range from the UK’s Police to large Civil Engineering companies, one of the UK’s busiest Ports and of course Survey Practices. We’ve rounded up four of our case studies that look at how each of these varied users have benefitted from Trimble VRS Now and just to be sure, in three cases we interviewed them when they first elected to use the service and again one year later. Each story confirms why this is a favoured solution.

Greenhatch Group

In 2015 Greenhatch Group’s 14 GNSS/GPS systems were linked to the Leica Geosystems SmartNet RTK Network via supplier approved ‘roaming’ SIMs cards. However, Greenhatch Group Director, Neil Jefferies, felt that although this combination delivered on many of the sites his surveyors worked on, he required a more reliable solution.

On arriving at an incident, a police collision unit’s main goal is to survey the area and collect evidence as quickly and completely as possible with a view to reopening roads at the earliest opportunity. Trimble VRS Now delivers the reliability demanded in these pressurised situations.

Under the guidance of Chief Engineering Surveyor, Mark Lawton, Skanska has been using Trimble VRS Now for over seven years and was one of our earliest users. Throughout that period, Mark reports that it has proved it’s reliability on all the road schemes it’s been used on.
