No matter how good a software solution is, if it's only being used by a few people or one team - its value is quite limited. The most indispensable solutions are those that provide tangible value, but do so for a range of use cases across departments. These solutions tear down silos, while building communication and efficiency - crucial considerations in industries that have numerous dependencies across teams.
The complexity of projects, the numerous stakeholders, and the tradition of siloed work environments make integrated solutions crucial in construction. A seemingly small design change or mistake in measurement can have significant ramifications for the physical and functional design—impacting project scope, schedule, and budget. BIM was designed to give architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure with a comprehensive view of the project. BIM provides a valuable and tangible view into all facets of the construction design.
If planning is integrated in one solution, so too should the platform that captures reality. The solution that creates drone maps, models, and analytics should likewise be able to capture all facets of reality on the job site. To that end, DroneDeploy drives visibility across all facets of the construction lifecycle, from pre-construction to handoff, and delivers both aerial and ground-views of structures. Moreover, it serves drone pilots as well as the administrators of drone programs.
DroneDeploy unifies aerial and ground-based visual data, bringing together different data sets to provide the smartest and most comprehensive insights for any team. These teams can collaborate anywhere with DroneDeploy, as they annotate, comment, and connect through an interactive and up-to-date visual record of projects. Colleagues can likewise annotate and give feedback and direction viewing maps, models, or reports.
DroneDeploy also takes automation a step further, letting teams automate detection and counting of objects such as stockpiles, trees, cars, and more -- optimizing efficiency and insights. The accuracy of measurements is unprecedented compared to antiquated methods, as teams can precisely measure volume, slope distance, analyze cut and fill, and report materials inventory. The result is that your teams have more accurate data accessible in a fraction of the time it used to take to collect it.
