Kempsey Shire Council recently purchased a Robotic Total Station from CR Kennedy. The service from Nathan Thompson was exceptional in providing Council with the right equipment at a competitive price. The instrument was delivered on site within a week and Zoot Ngui gave a comprehensive rundown of the operational features of the machine. Zoot also worked to provide Council with a file that has Councils preset coding to import into Captivate software. We could not be happier with our purchase and service.

“I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate CR Kennedy’s, and in particular Tony Richards, support over the past few weeks. We have had some trying issues lately and it is great to know that we can call on such a responsive service. It is unrivalled in the industry.

Keep up the good work!”

"Hi Ross
Now is the perfect time for us to say a big THANK YOU!
And so the CR Kennedy/Leica reputation rumours are true such that the quality and product support is second to none! No request was too great or too weird (start-up cheat sheet that now lives in the total station case) and your endless patience is appreciated as we phoned you on speed dial when learning how to use the TS15 Robotic Total Station. 
You are a great asset to CR Kennedy and Leica…. But they probably already know that!”

A little over 12 months ago, Telstra began looking for a machine control system to provide guidance and data recording for our rural optical fibre cable laying machinery (rip and plough bulldozers). After initially trialling with a competitor, we made contact with CR Kennedy and trialled the Leica Icon system on a project in Exmouth, Western Australia. 
We were impressed by the high quality of both the machine control systems we trialled. We were drawn to the Leica Icon range due to the simple user interface, cross slope sensor functionality, simple wiring and automatic data recording feature. 
CR Kennedy have provided fast and reliable service and support, both in person and over the phone, during the purchase, installation and training, which is ongoing. They have been very accommodating of our schedule, and assisted the construction crews in all possible ways. A particular mention must go to Jon, our sales contact, and Anton and Jeff, who between them have been involved in most of the installations.

I run an owner-operated excavator hire business on the Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia. In 2013 I contacted C.R Kennedy our local Leica agent to enquire about a 2D power digger system for my 8 tonne excavator. Following a prompt and professional on site demo by our local Leica representative, Jon Richmond, we purchased the system. This was then fitted to the excavator by the installation team from C.R Kennedy.

I have been enormously impressed with our power digger system and now would not contemplate running an excavator without one. The level of service we have received from Jon and the Leica team had been outstanding. From the initial demonstration to the quality installation (thanks Andrew and Anton) and after sales support had been second to none and the excellent training had made the power digger simple and easy to use to its full potential.

Summing up, ten out of ten to Leica and their team.

"We received the long awaited MS50 yesterday. 
Rob gave us an excellent introduction, thank you very much. We are already getting productive with it and scanned some pipework on a vessel this morning. What is good about it is that it behaves like a conventional theodolite, resecting of our standard control points without going through the process of setting up scan targets to fix the point cloud, with the added bonus of on board data processing. 
A general comment I've picked up a few times from the boys is that the gear just feels more solid compared to what we have been using. 
We’ll try and give you as much feedback as possible, as our construction sites are very full on, what happens in a normal small survey company in  a year takes place here in a week. 
The Nova will be an excellent tool for us"

 "...Just a quick email to thank yourself and your staff for the friendly and professional manner in which CR Kennedy handled negotiations, delivery and training in relation to the Viva TS15 and CS15. Our field staff are loving the new gear and the only issue which we face now is who gets the TS15 and who gets the old gear when we hit the field.
We have high hopes for a good year next year with a few big things already in the pipe line, hopefully we can convince the partners in the next few months that the TS15 is the way to go and we can then move on to replace the other jiggers. I have set up a system to help map the productivity/ cost savings and tendering competitiveness which the TS15 gives us and intend submitting this to the partners in 3 months time when there is adequate data to determine the forementioned. 
Omar is a fantastic addition to your team there and his friendliness and knowledge played a large part in the decision making process."

"...I would like to thank CRK and Andy Burrell in particular for all the help and support he has provided Vekta in regard to the monitoring of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC).  I also understand that Neil Ashcroft from Leica Geosystems has been providing valuable back up to Andy as well, and again we are very appreciative of his contributions.  The responsiveness and backup in hardware and software support has been exemplary and often provided at all hours of the day.
It just goes to show how well the Vekta/CRK/Leica collaboration is working and what a benefit it is to our clients, in this case Grocon. 
Please pass on our thanks and comments to your senior management and we look forward to a continuing excellent relationship."
Mal McCoy, Managing Director, AAM Victoria (formerly Vekta)
