Introducing Progress Photos, Construction Accuracy Package, and Drone on Demand pilot partnership with Uplift Data Partners

Construction is the fastest growing industry adopter of drone technology — and now the top sector using DroneDeploy. Last year, we saw a 2.4X growth in construction customers on our platform, and there is no sign of a slowdown anytime soon.

Construction companies worldwide leverage drones to manage, measure, and communicate project progress. That’s why we’re excited to share our latest construction solution that helps builders put a drone program on every job site.

Progress Photos Streamline Site Documentation and Reporting

It’s never been easier to report job site progress to stakeholders, customers, and collaborators. DroneDeploy’s newest feature — Progress Photos — saves time and creates a visual timeline of your job site in minutes. It’s the first tool that allows you to intuitively plan photo flights, automatically capture corner images, and generate a progress report that can be replicated every week.

“Progress Photos from DroneDeploy opens a whole new environment to efficiently and effortlessly capture the deliverables our clients have been asking for.” — Grant Hagen, Beck Group

Progress Photos makes it easy to capture consistent photos of your job site every week.

Not only does this new feature simplify the data collection workflow, but it makes it possible to store all of your drone data (photos, maps, and 3D models) in a single, easy-to-share platform.

“Say goodbye to multiple apps and programs; now you can manage all your images within DroneDeploy.” — Jono Millin, Chief Product Officer at DroneDeploy

The new feature makes it easy to capture precise and consistent corner shots of your project over time — and export them into a digestible report to keep stakeholders and clients informed of a site’s progress. Just plan the photo mission, set your boundaries, and let the drone do its job.

“In the past, other tools have proven difficult when onboarding new pilots and supporting my team. Progress Photos makes adoption and reporting site progress easy across McCarthy’s entire team.” — Ryan Moret, McCarthy Building Companies

Drone on Demand Pilot Partnership with Uplift Data Partners

We just launched Drone On Demand, a simplified way for companies to collect aerial data with drones. The new solution lets customers plan a flight mission in the DroneDeploy platform, then request a certified professional pilot from Uplift Data Partners — the leading data capture pilot platform for enterprise construction businesses. An Uplift pilot will travel to the site, perform the mission, and collect the aerial data. Afterwards photos, maps, and 3D models appear in your account within 72 hours.
