Streamline Inspection & Quality Assurance
On any job site, things will sometimes go wrong. How quickly an issue is detected and resolved can make the difference between a lost hour or a lost week in the schedule, between hundreds of dollars in repairs or millions, between a health or safety risk and a catastrophic incident. But walking a jobsite takes time -- it's dangerous, and it's hard to be sure you've seen everything. The DroneDeploy platform offers a better way -- to save hours of manual inspection time, give workers the information they need to make repairs, and give managers peace of mind with an up-to-date view of open issues. Find out how enterprises in construction and energy are using the DroneDeploy platform to streamline their inspection workflows, reduce risk, and promote a culture of quality and accountability on their job sites.

DroneDeploy Design Workshop
DroneDeploy wants to collaborate with our customers to better understand their use cases and build solutions that solve broad problem sets. We want to create a structured conversation and brainstorm that attendees of DDC19 can join to share and collaborate around a specific set of topics.  Join this design workshop to yield valuable and actionable insights that the design team can use to make better solutions for collaboration, analysis, or flight.

We will provide a prompt to help guide people to find problems they currently face in their organization, share it with a small group of other participants, discuss the pros and cons of each issue, select one issue from the set that each working group has uncovered, and then go through a mini design sprint to assess possible creative solutions to that problem. If time permits, each group will present their user problem and proposed solution to the group at the end in a lighting style presentation.

Take the Guesswork Out of Earthmoving
When it comes to earthmoving, there's a lot at stake. As one of the earliest and most expensive parts of any project, it determines whether you're on schedule or behind, making money or overbudget. Estimating earthmoving costs well can make the difference between making money and losing money on a project, between winning or losing a bid, or between choosing a great subcontractor or a terrible one. It's just as important to measure earthmoving while it's underway to track subcontractor work, plan logistics and manage the schedule. And yet much of the time, important decisions about earthmoving are made by guesswork, because traditional methods of volumetric measurement are too time-consuming and expensive to be done more than once or twice a year. Now, you can say goodbye to guesswork. Find out how fast and easy it is to accurately make whatever volumetric measurements you need when you need them-- whether you're managing stockpile volumes, planning the next phase of mine development or tracking earthmoving on a construction site.
