PrecisionHawk attended last year’s Develop with Deere conference and already, Business Developer Nat Hyde says, they see major changes.
PrecisionHawk is an ariel imaging company with a software platform called DataMapper. Last year they attended the boot camp to get started using Deere’s API. Now, 12 months later, all of their DataMapper files can be downloaded to the Operations Center as a shape file and rather than learning the system, PrecisionHawk is ready to move it forward.
At this conference Hyde says he sees John Deere moving from a one way message of pushing information about the Operations Center to a two way street for collecting new ideas.
“Our goal is that this is the first step, and they [John Deere] recognize that,” Hyde told Chuck Zimmerman. “It’s been really incredible. The feedback is they are grateful it is where it is and they are excited to see where it goes from here because they know it’s going to be a process, but they are ready to see it happen and they are excited for the next steps.”
PrecisionHawk is ready for its own ‘next steps’ as well. The company sees new requests for aerial imaging all the time. Insurance companies to mining operations see data as a valuable asset and PrecisionHawk is placing themselves in a position to meet those needs.
