COPTRZ, a U.K.-based commercial drone specialist, has released DRONE-FLX, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) leasing solution.
With costs spread over a three-year period, the latest drone hardware can be bundled with training and software to enable an effective drone strategy that can be paid for on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, the company explains. After three years, the equipment can be exchanged for the latest technology or handed back, or the agreement can be extended at a reduced rate. COPTRZ claims DRONE-FLX is the first program of its kind in the U.K.
“The commercial use of drones has skyrocketed over the past 12 months as businesses have realized their worth in providing faster, cheaper and safer operations,” comments Steve Coulson, founder and managing director of COPTRZ. “Despite this, there are still many organizations who cannot access the benefits due to the upfront investment required. COPTRZ have developed DRONE-FLX with the aim of making drone technology accessible and cost-effective for enterprises. Some of the most advanced commercial drones on the market – including the DJI M210, WIND series, GRIFF heavy lift, Wingtra, Aerialtronics, Acecore and various thermal cameras – are included in the DRONE-FLX model for as little as 200 British pounds per month with no upfront cost.”
The company recently announced it would be supplying UAVs for the Devon & Cornwall Police and Dorset Police.
