3DR, the maker of Site Scan, a drone data platform for the architecture, engineering and construction industry, has announced a partnership with SoftBank C&S, one of Japan’s largest distributors of information and communications technology.
The 3DR sales team recently joined SoftBank C&S on its national Site Scan road show, demonstrating the product across Japan in collaboration with Autodesk and Shibamoto & Co., 3DR’s authorized distributor in Japan.
“Being in person with SoftBank C&S, Autodesk and Shibamoto made it clear just how big of an impact aerial data capture can have in the Japanese market,” comments Matt Harrison, head of sales at 3DR. “Aerial data software like Site Scan is already driving productivity for our customers in Japan. The partnership with SoftBank C&S will allow 3DR to meet the demand for drone data across the country.”
Site Scan collects aerial data and processes it in the cloud into 2D and 3D models. The data can also be exported into standard file formats to be used in various design tools, says 3DR.
The company notes that Site Scan’s key features and specifications – both hardware and software – are compliant with Japan’s i-Construction mandate, set by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) in 2016 to use ICT to increase productivity in construction and civil engineering.
“SoftBank C&S is an established, innovative firm with a strong track record of success, and it’s great to see their initial traction with the Site Scan road show,” adds Chris Anderson, CEO of 3DR. “We look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with them to help drive productivity on construction projects across Japan.”
