With the Kespry Drone 2s now available across the John Deere network, customers can easily create a mission with the touch of a finger, then capture, analyze and share survey grade data and insights.
Kespry develops all the hardware, software and cloud services that deliver a solution from field to finish. It is a leading aerial intelligence platform provider and is transforming how organizations capture, analyze and share business insights.
“The data gathered from the Kespry system will help our customers and equipment operators make decisions that reduce costs and improve productivity as they optimize the jobsite and spend less time on jobs.”
The partnership will immediately roll out to John Deere’s dealer network. As part of the alliance agreement, Kespry will conduct certification with all the John Deere dealerships so that each has certified and knowledgeable staff on site.
“This technology will help our dealers offer a seamless workflow to site development and road building contractors from project planning through grading dirt,” said Andrew Kahler, product marketing manager, John Deere WorkSight™.
The equipment manufacturing giant said Tuesday it’s partnering with drone technology startup Kespry, a deal that will involve John Deere’s sales teams selling drones and related services to the construction industry.
Two big names in the construction industry have joined forces, as equipment supplier John Deere (NYSE: DE) and CA-based drone solutions company Kespry announce an exclusive global strategic alliance.
“Our relationship with John Deere will accelerate the adoption of drone solutions in industrial markets and will rapidly change how business is done in construction, road building and other industrial sectors,” said George Mathew, chairman and CEO of Kespry.
As part of the deal, John Deere’s network of more than 400 American and Canadian dealers will “introduce customers” to Kespry’s various drone services, while the startup handles customer support and flight training, said Andrew Kahler, a product marketing manager with John Deere.
