Drone software platform provider DroneDeploy has rolled out what it calls “sweeping updates” to its enterprise solution.
The San Francisco-based company has announced new collaborations with DARTdrones, offering enterprise-level drone training; GeoCue, which provides its Loki direct geopositioning system, allowing customers to create highly accurate drone maps in record time and reduce or eliminate the need for ground control points or traditional surveying; and Droneinsurance.com, offering comprehensive insurance to customers.
“More and more companies are moving past early drone technology adoption to roll out larger, enterprise deployments – and their software platform needs to expand with them,” comments Mike Winn, CEO of DroneDeploy. “We’re passionate about providing these team-oriented features to all our customers. Drones are transforming workflows, and every company deserves software to help them make smarter decisions with aerial data.”
DroneDeploy has also announced support for the DJI Matrice 200 series.
“DroneDeploy’s latest expanded software offering will enable enterprises to truly reap the benefits of the DJI Matrice 200 Series and provide more insights into their decision-making,” says Jan Gasparic, head of enterprise partnerships at DJI. “These expanded features and collaborations showcase their commitment to helping companies of all sizes utilize the power of DJI technology in today’s rapidly expanding commercial drone industry.”
Because large organizations need to keep track of the data they are generating, as well as safety issues and data breaches, DroneDeploy is now offering Security Assertion Markup Language-based Single Sign-On; user roles (administrators, view only, etc.); a dashboard that allows administrators to see every map ever created with DroneDeploy; an audit trail view to track exactly where drones have gone; and folders to group related maps and projects, along with other enhancements. According to DroneDeploy, these rollouts make it easier to track hundreds of pilots and collaborators at a glance – seeing where they have flown, the routes they have mapped, and the data they have gathered and analyzed.
The company notes that the new updates aren’t just for enterprise customers; they’re available to all mapping professionals or organizations seeking drone capabilities, regardless of size.
“We’re putting enterprise capabilities into the hands of everyone with our latest release – from small organizations just getting started to international teams scaling operations,” adds Winn.
