February 15, 2019

Whether your organisation intends to be an early adopter of drone technology or a cautious follower, mapping how this technology can be incorporated, with an element of ‘future proofing’, is complex. And getting company-wide buy-in isn’t easy. We've highlighted considerations for five key players within an enterprise.

At BIRDI we’re proud of our expert knowledge and broad experience across industries and departments. Our teams are perfectly placed to work with key stakeholders within your organisation to define and seamlessly integrate the right products and services for your needs. Our Drone Enterprise Readiness Assessment Tool is a great place to start.

Here are considerations for the five key players within an enterprise:

For The Executives Or Strategists

We encourage leaders to consider the competitive advantage that drone technology could provide your business such as: increased safety, operational efficiencies, cost reductions or even a new competitive product offering.

Drones are already revolutionising many industries and introducing services that haven’t even been imagined yet. Innovative organisations are getting ahead of the game, developing strategic plans and in-house or outsourced capabilities.We have often found that drones have been tested, or at least considered, by the teams on the ground but to see the full benefits of this technology it must be coupled with the support, commitment and leadership of the executives.

For The Risk & Compliance Managers

We appreciate that adopting drone technology can mean changing the risk profile of your organisation, which is daunting, but every innovation is daunting at first. We’re experts in mitigating that risk by ensuring our customers adhere to necessary compliance factors and join us in putting safety first. The reality is that drone technology often contributes directly to improving safety by removing the need for staff to expose themselves to dangerous situations.

For The Operations Team

We’re always hearing from operations teams looking to achieve the same time and cost savings benefiting the early adopters of drone technology. However, building a business case and an initial proof of concept is often a challenge. Our specialist teams can guide you through finding the most compelling applications for your organisation.

For Finance & IT Procurement

We recognise that budget constraints serve an important purpose for organisations and investing in new and unfamiliar technologies is a decision not to be taken lightly. We like to remain platform agnostic so we can offer impartial advice and support in sourcing the right solutions for your objectives.
