FieldGenius Releases

Postby Darcy Detlor » Wed Feb 12, 2003 6:40 pm

Hello Chris,

FieldGenius is undergoing a massive upgrade right now.

Functions written and finalized:

Alignment Staking, plus much more
DTM Calculations in real time
Contouring
Volumes
GPS support for all major brands
Many, many more features

These options will be shipping in March.

With the large increase in functionality, we are increasing the prices.

The basic product will still be $995, but there will be three modules available at additional cost:

1. Robotic Control
2. Roading/DTM/Contouring/Volumes
3. GPS support

The modules will be available in any combination you desire. Prices are not set yet.

Anyone who currently owns FieldGenius will be upgraded to the Roading/DTM/Contouring/Volumes & Robotic Control for no additional charge.

GPS will be a chargable item.

More information will be posted to our FieldGenius pages soon. If you are thinking of buying, now is the time. We are going to have the best data collector on the market soon, and the extremely low price is no longer justified. We will be competitively priced.

Darcy
so if our company purchases feild genius before the contour/road program comes out.....the upgrade to road will be free???....
if we purchase field genius after the road program comes out....will it be included with the new field genius program or will there be a addition cost for the road program.

if there is going to be a additional cost for road ....do you have any rough estimate on the cost, so i can try to justify to my boss to purchase the program now and get road later for free???

FieldGenius Pricing

Postby Darcy Detlor » Mon Feb 24, 2003 12:41 pm

Hi Chris,

We will be pricing the product to make it easier for a company to get exactly the features they need.

The basic FieldGenius XG product will remain at $995US

Three additions will be available that can be ordered independently:

1) Robotic Controls - full control for Leica, Topcon, Trimble/Spectra/Geodimeter, and Zeiss robots for both surveying and stakeout.

2) Advanced Design - includes road alignment staking, slope staking, surface modeling, contouring, DTM staking, LandXML surfaces/alignments/parcels etc., volume calculations between surfaces or between a surface and a datum

3) RTK GPS Mapping - interface to Leica, Trimble, Topcon/Javad, Ashtech/Thales, Sokkia, Novatel systems

The FieldGenius we sell today will be updated to include options 1) and 2) at no charge. Option 3) will be additional. Pricing for options 1) 2) & 3) has not been set yet. I can say it will be more than $250 US and less than $500 US for each option.

I hope this helps. As I stated, it is a good time to purchase FieldGenius XG.

DARCY

JUST TO CLEAR IT UP ALITTLE FOR MYSELF.......IF WE WAIT TO PURCHASE THE BASIC FIELD GENIUS UNTIL THE SEPERATE PROGRAM ARE AVAILABLE, WE WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE ROAD/CONTOUR PROGRAM SEPERATLY???

IF WE BUY NOW WE GET THE ROAD/CONTOUR UPGRADED FOR FREE????

THANKS

Options

Postby Glen Cameron » Tue Feb 25, 2003 7:37 am

You are correct in what you have asked.

If you wait until the 3 options are available then you will need to purchase the 3 add-ons at that time. Each, at the price set, when they are released.

If you purchase the FG XG right now, before they are available, then you will get option 1 and 2 as a free upgrade. Option 3 will still be a purchase at that time.

So as Darcy said - it is a good time to purchase now so you get the free upgrade options when they are available.

Cheers,
