IT Visionaries

Jun 19, 2019

Everyone knows that drones are cool, but did you also know that drone technology is being used across industries to make work easier, safer and more efficient? Nicholas Pilkington (LinkedIn, Twitter) is one of the people help make that possible thanks to his company, Drone Deploy. Using Drone Deploy, anyone can send out a drone to map an area and then receive detailed imagery and data that can help with oversight, problem-solving, and even disaster relief. Currently, Drone Deploy is used on around 600,000 job sites around the world in more than 180 different countries and has mapped more than 60 million acres of ground.

On this episode of IT Visionaries, Nick talks about how he got into the drone business, the ways he thinks the industry will continue to grow, and what he’s doing to use drone technology to give back to the world.
