Traverse PC - Testimonials

Traverse PC talks with some of our users about TPC Desktop.

Barbara Brewer Cooper, PLS in CA, OR, HI

" I celebrated my retirement from 33 years as a paid Land Surveyor by volunteering for a project in India with Engineering Ministries International. I was part of a nine person team that had to gather data on a 100+ acre missionary complex in only 6 field days, to create an as-built drawing of the site.

Traverse PC proved to be a true blessing by enabling me to aid in the creation of the drawing after returning to the US .  It allowed me to easily match the local Indian UTM datum and units used by the staff in India . I imported their CAD drawing sheets to use as an underlay while I created the surface contours from our field shots. I then exported the surfaces as a .dwg file for their review, feedback and inclusion in their drawing. I was also able to effortlessly import satellite imagery to help check locations of buildings, canals, etc.

“The TPC technical staff was always fast to respond to any questions or problems I was having with the surface drawing, and made finishing this project an absolute joy!”

Kevin J. McMahon, PS, CFM , Gulf South Associates, Biloxi , MS

' As a small business owner with no designated graphics or CAD person, I needed to learn a mapping program that could bring me from beginner to expert level quickly. I chose Traverse PC.  After only two hours of training with the TPC Connection, I am now drawing clean, beautiful plats and contour maps in Traverse PC.  Traverse PC and the TPC Connection technical service are worth their weight in gold! "

Voted Best Surveyor in East Texas by the Longview News Journal 2011 Reader's Choice Awards

"Traverse PC was an evident choice for me when I started my own surveying firm at my kitchen table.  As the projects came in the door, upgrading to professional was a great choice that paid dividends.  Having used several drafting and mapping programs, I champion Traverse PC as a viable standalone option for any surveyor.  Made for Surveyors, I have not had any conflict with CAD data and continue to produce amazing plats and export accurate topo data to my clients.  The tech support is incredible and the programming is high quality.  I am expanding my office to hire another drafter and Traverse PC was a clear winner for drafting software."

Keith A. Heindel, PLS MD, PA & Gary J. Ganjon, PLS MD, PA, Westminster, MD

" When opening our new land surveying business in the fall of 2007, we made the choice to go with a major survey software provider based on an AutoCAD engine. After a whole day of struggling to get a finished drawing out for our client, we loaded up a trial version of Traverse PC v8.0 (TPC) and within 4 hours, we were signing and sealing a final plan for delivery.

"Since that time, we have continued to grow our company utilizing TPC. Whether our finished product is a mortgage survey, septic plan, boundary survey, or commercial site plan, our clients have come to expect clear and concise drawings that TPC helps us produce. It is these qualities in our plans that are now being recognized by our local review agencies.

"Traverse PC has the ability to import multiple types of survey/GIS data and customize each type of data for independent drawings. We are able to use the software without months of training just to learn the basic "cadd" engine commands because the software makes sense. In addition, Traverse PC also includes the best, most personal, technical support we have ever seen in 26 years of surveying.

"If you need surveying software, we highly recommend TPC be at the top of your list. We have found the product and support to provide us with the tools we need to improve our efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness when working for our clients. "

Tony O'Rourke, LSIT, Willow Creek, CA

" The new release provided me with the tools for computing grid to geodetics in a matter of 15 minutes and my line work was plat ready. "You need to be careful, you don't want  get lazy" but this is efficient.  I compared geodetic bearings to our CMM project and " What can I say it's Poetry".  TPC's new BLM "PLSS" blocks, north arrow, scale, Title Bar and drawing template made a seamless entry for me to start my plat."

John Rutter, PS, Columbus, OH

"I am an owner of a small survey company. About five years ago, I purchased a copy of the Professional Edition of TPC. After using a variety of mostly CAD based survey programs, I was amazed at the short learning curve it took to adjust to TPC. In using TPC, I am able to create my drawings in a short time. And when I would run into a problem or have questions which were typically in the evening hours, I was always able to get a quick response from tech support. I recently purchased the TPC Desktop 2010 and am pleasantly surprised at the amount of great additions made to the program. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to purchase a surveying program."

Fred Haidt, PLS, Mobile, AL

"I have enjoyed using Traverse P.C. surveying software. It is very user friendly and produces high quality survey plats. Excellent tech support is vailable. Affordability of the program has been most helpful in these tough economic times."

David Hansard, PLS, Dover, TN

"This is the surveying software I have been looking for.  I have spent about two weeks playing with Traverse PC while I have been using my old surveying software to complete work already downloaded.  The drawing I have attached is my first completed drawing that took about a couple of hours to finish.  The problem with Traverse PC is finding a place to stop, I keep finding things to do to the drawing and finally had to stop and call it complete so I could get paid for the survey.  This is the first time I have been able to add calls to a drawing and a vicinity map I didn't have to draw by hand.

    I had been looking for new software for some time now and had just gone through four other trial programs before I came across your advertisement in POB. The learning curve to produce a complete drawing is short, but I realize that I have a lot more to learn.   The next drawing will be better than this one after I get further into the program.  I look forward to drawing now that I can do the things I have been wanted to do but couldn't with the old software.  The old software is no more. Thanks."

William N. Whye, PLS, Lower Burrell, PA
(Bill Whye, the survey guy), Triad Surveys

"I have been using Traverse PC for almost eight years now. Having been a surveyor for over 50 years & also having owned my own business for 15 years, I can say without a doubt this software is the easiest I have ever learned to use. As a beginner, with minimal training, you are able to produce basic survey drawings practically right out of the box. In addition, as you grow with the software the software kind of grows with you as you learn insights into some pretty slick stuff the software provides that kind of goes unnoticed until necessity motivates you to dig deeper. It is then you make some very interesting "discoveries" that produce awesome results that leaves you smiling. To top it off, they keep making great software even greater with continuing enhancement. The software writers are open to suggestions & the tech support is outstanding. I tried it & I liked it. I think you will too."

Bob Holtkamp, GNG Survey, Stony Plain, AB, Canada

"I'm working in the high Arctic on a project called the DEW Line Clean Up (DLCU). DEW is an acronym for Distant Early Warning systems and is a joint project of the Canadian and American military."

"The Department of Defense would accept only AutoCAD or Traverse PC. AutoCAD is not surveyor friendly."

 "The economics are simple. Without Traverse PC our company would not have this lucrative contract. "I could not do this job with such ease without the help of Traverse PC. "With Traverse PC I can survey in the field first or survey on the computer first and reconstruct in the field. Layout and volumes are a snap."

"Thank God for Traverse PC... It gives me time to fish!"

"Traverse PC is the most user friendly software that I've used.  I've been a user of this product for 20+ years and have used it in Cadastral, boundary, riparian, construction, lot surveys and plat reviews.  I highly recommend it and ...well, try it, you'll like it. "

Sergio J. A. Sánchez, SIR_GEO, San Pedro, CA

"Traverse PC is the most complete software out there.  It's cut my total production time down by making map preparation faster and easier.  I've also been able to please all my clients by being able to deliver quicker and in any format they want.  It's just made business simpler for me."

Guy Falconieri, Pequannock, NJ

"With all the on line training TPC offered, I was running the drawing program after several sessions. Topo drawings were even easier. Thanks. TPC!"

"I started using Traverse PC when it first came out in DOS (1984 I believe), and found it remarkable at the time.  The "spreadsheet" effect was light-years ahead of anything on the market in that price range, including much more costly software".

"The last 22 years I have previewed numerous COGO software programs, but have never found anything close to Traverse PC, and now with the full ability to draft maps, the program is complete".

"Over the years I have recommended Traverse PC to many of my Professional Land Surveyor acquaintances, and will continue to do so".

William N. Whye, PLS, Triad Surveys, Inc., Lower Burrell, PA

Bill has been surveying since August of 1959 starting out at 17 as a chainman for West Penn Power Co. (now Allegheny Power). He has surveyed in Ohio, Michigan, Texas & Pennsylvania.

Randy Green, Humbolt, TN

"Bought a popular "CAD" program in 2004.  After two months of struggling, tossed it and bought Traverse PC...I haven't looked back...This program does everything I need and much more".

"Tech support, if you should need it, is prompt, personal, and from the guys that wrote the program..By the way, they are surveyors also!"

 

Pete Jackson, Korbel, CA

"I am the sole Land Surveyor for a resource company who actively manages over 420,000 acres in Northern California. I do not have time to learn complicated CADD programs which were not designed specifically for surveying. I need a stand alone survey program that is intuitive, powerful, efficient, and is back by excellent tech support. TraversePC has been that program for me for the last 9 years."

"I took a semester long class on Land Development Desktop to see if I could benefit from such a program at work. Over the course of the semester, I learned how to import points, develop a contour map from the points, insert breaklines, insert text, and print. Using Traverse PC, I was able to teach myself in less than a day how to do everything I learned in the semester long class. Traverse PC is the way to go for all Land Surveyors."

"Traverse PC has been my stand alone survey program for the last nine years. I tried Land Development Desktop but came running back to Traverse PC."

David Holland, Glen Allen, VA

"I find Traverse PC very easy and efficient to use.  The applications are logical and the learning curve is very short.  I would highly recommend this survey software for all land surveyors."

Joel Kayser, Alfred State College, NY

"To the makers of Traverse-PC, Yu ROCK! I am a student... and have been using your program all summer. As a rookie to the survey profession I find the program to be very user friendly. Traverse PC is helpful with understanding how data is used to make decisions in a survey, as well as providing a visual image illustrating what the data collected is trying to show. Excellent product please keep up the good work!"
