Nearmap is a no brainer for us. Its frequently updated imagery and intuitive measurement tools helped us gain the accuracy we required for our solar business. Google Maps is simply not a serious competitor.
Darren Vonthethoff, State Sales Manager

Before Nearmap, NRG Solar had no access to reliable imagery to prepare information before site inspection

By adopting Nearmap for project planning and quotation processes, NRG Solar Services gained ability to plan and inspect locations remotely, saving at least 25 hours per week for site visits. Furthermore, the company enhanced its credibility and improved sales conversion rate by ensuring the estimate accuracy and increasing customer confidence with Nearmap’s high quality images.
