DroneHive Shares Top 10 Reasons for Corporations to Use a Drone Services Company for Aerial Data Collection
As Corporate Use of Drones for Aerial Data Collection Increases, Using Professionals to Fly the Drones Provides Better Compliance, Safety and Efficiencies
Seattle, WA—March 22, 2018—DroneHive, the leading provider of expert services for aerial data collection, sees firsthand daily how corporations are integrating aerial data into their business strategy. The company is also acutely aware of the many ways corporations can get into trouble when they try to navigate the complexities of drones on their own. To help guide corporations in this new area, DroneHive today unveiled a document that lists the "Top 10 Reasons for Corporations to Use a Drone Services Company for Aerial Data Collection." The guidance document covers everything from indemnification and safety, to various cost savings and the ability to use diverse drones based on the specific task at hand. Drone services companies also help to ensure a corporation is collecting accurate and unbiased aerial data, enabling the corporation to make better and more efficient operational decisions.
Aerial data collection is especially useful in construction, energy, security, insurance, civil engineering, agriculture, real estate and property management - all industries that regularly do inspection, surveillance or other aerial data collection. DroneHive has been working with a major global technology company, a national industrial equipment firm, the worlds second largest solar company and even a well-known brewery.
"Drones are here to stay and corporations are rapidly increasing the number of flights for aerial data collection in 2018," said Paul Huish, CEO of DroneHive. "The problem is that corporations are often like a fish out of water in this new realm and they put their companies at great risk. DroneHive takes away this risk, enables these corporations to breathe more easily and make better and more strategic business decisions than ever before."
