Why do you need a land survey drafting service?

Land survey drafting is the creation of technical drawings that precisely map out land areas and features based on land surveys. Land surveys provide detailed measurements of property boundaries, topography, and various other elements. Surveyors gather this field data, and land survey drafters convert it into drawings for legal, engineering, construction, and other applications. Therefore, any land survey firm needs a team of land survey drafters.

Having provided land survey drafting services for five years with a team of over 50 members who complete thousands of projects each year, we have identified several issues and reasons why land survey drafting services are necessary:

Difficulty in Hiring Land Survey Drafters: One of the main reasons for the shortage of land survey drafters is the lack of interest among young people in pursuing careers in this field. Surveying is not a well-known profession, and many students are not aware of the opportunities that exist in the field. Clearly, the supply of personnel in this industry is decreasing. Therefore, it is very difficult to recruit land survey drafters when needed.

High Costs for In-House Land Survey Drafters: The cost of salaries and benefits for an in-house team is too high, including training, recruitment, office facilities, equipment, management, taxes, software licenses, and insurance—all of which are increasing rapidly. Business owners are forced to look for cost-cutting solutions. So, what is the solution to reduce costs for in-house land survey drafters?

Management Burden and Employee Retention: The shortage of land survey drafters has caused significant difficulties for business owners, but managing and retaining employees is even more challenging, stressful, and costly, from project managers to land survey drafters. The work style has changed significantly. Nowadays, workers are more interested in more autonomous, flexible jobs. This, to some extent, affects management and performance evaluation. If there is a solution to this problem, business owners in the land survey field will be more confident and secure in developing their businesses sustainably.

Bulky Teams: For larger companies, operational issues such as costs, benefits, insurance, taxes, office facilities, work efficiency, activities, corporate culture, processes, and systems are very cumbersome and resource-intensive. The current trend is to optimize the workforce, focusing on core values such as sales, marketing, customer care, and optimal design solutions, while basic tasks like land survey drafting should be outsourced.

Desire to Expand Business but Uncertain How: Currently, you are doing an excellent job, from client interaction, consulting, and drawing implementation to editing to satisfy clients and meeting city government requirements, along with many other unnamed tasks surrounding you. You might be thinking, “If I keep working this way, how can the business grow?” or “How can the business develop?” So, what is the solution here?

Wanting More Land Survey Drafting Service Providers: You have been outsourcing land survey drafting and have seen significant benefits from this service. However, to prepare for expansion, reduce dependence on the current provider, or replace them with a better provider, you need additional options.

However, as projects increase, you will become overwhelmed with work, and you will need to hire support. Recruiting land survey drafters in the US, Australia, Canada is not easy, not to mention the costs and other factors such as office space, benefits, policies, etc. Therefore, outsourcing some of the current tasks is a necessary solution with many benefits.
  • Small and medium-sized business owners: At this stage, even with staff, you still have a lot of work from customer consulting, marketing, training, setting up work systems, standardizing forms, styles, etc. Your main task is to build a core team with important members who have the skills and experience to deliver the best project quality to clients. Outsourcing non-core tasks not only saves costs but also frees up a large workload for the core team, allowing the core team more time for core tasks towards sustainable business development.
