DroneDeploy unveils "sweeping updates" to its enterprise software; announces new partnerships



According to Unmanned Aerial, DroneDeploy, which is a San Francisco-based UAS software platform provider, has unveiled “sweeping updates” to its enterprise software.

Acknowledging the need for large organizations to be able to keep track of the data they are generating, along with 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.” Additional enhancements will be offered as well.

Through these new rollouts, DroneDeploy says that it will be easier to track hundreds of pilots and collaborators at a glance, as these features will make it possible to see where they have flown, what routes they have mapped, and the data that they have collected and analyzed.

“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,” says 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.”

The new updates are available to all mapping professionals or organizations looking for UAS capabilities, no matter what size they are.

“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,” Winn adds.

DroneDeploy has new also announced collaborations with three entities: DARTdrones, GeoCue and Droneinsurance.com—all of whom bring something different to the table.

DARTdrones offers enterprise-level UAS training. GeoCue offers its Loki direct geopositioning system, which allows customers to create extremely accurate UAS maps in record time, and lower or eliminate the need for ground control points or traditional surveying. Droneinsurance.com offers customers comprehensive insurance.

Lastly, DroneDeploy has announced support for the DJI Matrice 200 series, which Jan Gasparic, head of enterprise partnerships at DJI, commented on.

“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,” Gasparic says.

“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.”
