You can do an initial quick as is model for a rough early design work with a 48 hour turn around (in most cases). Iterate your on Architectural designs faster, cheaper and accurately for way less than a high end lidar scan or start the initial rough design work while the highly accurate measurements are being surveyed.

With cutting travel and saving time, of course you would save money as well. Imagine you have a 20 unit condo or apartment building in the construction phase. The floor plans are the same or very similar to an existing building you or your partners own. Show the virtual tours of the several floor plans you offer in your new complex. This allows the potential buyers to narrow down which floorplan they like best, reducing the time needed to book time with your sales agent to view the suites they have no interest in because they already viewed the suites online and narrowed their list to the top 2 or 3 suites they would like to see. These potential buyers could be out of town, state, country or continent. This also allows your sales team to spend less time with each buyer allowing them to book time with more buyers.
