A commercial unmanned aerial systems (UAS) operator authorized by the FAA for aerial services in the United States, Southeast Drone Technologies (SEDT) provides rapid response aerial mapping, videography, photography and 3D modeling solutions for businesses in the real estate, construction, agricultural and energy sectors.
Southeast Drone was running their operations on excel spreadsheets and faced a significant problem when it came to scale and multi-program installations. When a new project came in, which is a collection of sites (cell towers and other properties), it took several hours to plot the sites on a map and assign the sites to the pilots to go out into the field and inspect. Once the work was passed to the pilots, they then had to go out and find the locations one by one.
SEDT needed a solution that:
Reduced the time needed to plot sites on a map
Automatically and efficiently assigned sites to pilots in the field
Provided location GPS data and other project specifications via mobile devices to streamline information sharing between the office and the pilots in the field.
VALiNTRY was able to build a Sales Cloud installation with a Salesforce Maps solution added to manage the full life cycle for each program.
Additional elements included:
Google sheets integration for clients to maintain / update site information. This allowed pilots and management to view each site’s status in real time.
Site Management system to review each site report before it went to the client that lowered site failure rates.
VALiNTRY was also able to provide SEDT analytics, monitoring, and reporting for KPIs including:
How much time their pilots spent on-site
Where the majority of their sites are located
Project sites’ current status
4-8 hours of administrative work saved on each project
improvement in pilot productivity
on every project
VALiNTRY was great to work with. [They] listened to our ideas and helped to turn them into a functioning product. [They were] available for questions and calls when we needed input. Thanks to their expertise, knowledge and skills, we now have a new tool that is already saving us time and helping to make us more productive.
