Through the new partnership, John Deere construction and forestry equipment dealers will offer their customers Kespry Aerial Intelligence systems for use on job sites around the world. Kespry leases its drones but does not sell them outright. John Deere offers a mix of leases and sales.
Drones are being used as a vital tool, collecting data and tracking progress on construction sites in order to allow project managers and general contractors to make more informed decisions and operate more efficiently.
David Lloyd, a mine planning engineer for Oldcastle Materials subsidiary APAC Central, says the Kespry system has decreased the amount of time it takes to generate a survey of an area from nearly a week to just a few hours.
George Mathew noted that the “drone sector is strewn with broken toys. A lot of people have been suffering, because they cannot control aspects of hardware and software. Kespry delivers a fully-integrated hardware and software experience."
Garrett Smith, Director of Business Development at Kespry, will join guest speaker, Brad Hancock, CEO of Hancock Claims Consultants, in a discussion about how drone technology in the hands of inspection professionals will complement the way property claims are handled for their carrier clients.
“These drones save time, but they also show you how to be more efficient,” says John Davenport, construction surveyor for Whitaker Contracting Corporation.
The new Kespry Drone 2 boasts a high-performance ground receiver, and the Global Navigation Satellite System base station receiver serves as a single survey control point.
