Leading Earthworks Contractor D&T Excavation Chooses Kespry for Inventory Management and Topographical Analysis

Oregon earthworks company selects Kespry drone-based aerial intelligence platform in partnership with John Deere dealer Papé Machinery

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 22, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Kespry, the leading aerial intelligence solution provider, today announced D&T Excavation, an Oregon-based earthworks company serving commercial, residential and government agencies, has selected the Kespry aerial intelligence platform to perform comprehensive inventory management and worksite topographical analysis, and help ensure the safety of its employees. D&T Excavation conducted a comprehensive survey of available industrial drone options and chose Kespry following a recommendation and demonstration from their strategic equipment partner Papé Machinery, a member of the John Deere dealer network. Kespry and John Deere have an exclusive global strategic alliance to provide the Kespry aerial intelligence platform through the John Deere Dealer Network worldwide.

"Everyone's biggest nightmare is to bid a job and then find out that it's something different than what you're expecting," said Dan Liechty, Project Engineer, D&T. "A lot of times, the existing contours or elevations we're getting from an engineer could be outdated or based on some inaccurate, not detailed survey techniques. There's supposed to be all this dirt there and then it ends up not being there. With Kespry, we can go out there and verify it without spending two or three days doing a topographical analysis with a GPS base and rover."

D&T also keeps its customers informed about worksite project progress through the Kespry aerial intelligence platform's comprehensive analytics and reporting capabilities.

"We saw the benefit of being able to invite customers to look at specific jobs and their progress, as well as orthomosaic photographs from the cloud," said Liechty. "From our research, we saw Kespry was the most complete, end-to-end solution. We think this is the future. Everyone's going to be using something like this."

Perhaps most importantly, Kespry is helping ensure D&T employees can pursue inventory management and topographical analysis without putting themselves in harm's way. With the Kespry aerial intelligence platform's autonomous drone technology, the operator simply selects the survey area and sets the flight parameters on a user-friendly iPad application, and the autonomous Kespry Drone and Kespry Cloud do the rest.

"Using Kespry means more safety and saving time," said Liechty. "It's a huge pain to send somebody to the top of a rock stockpile and come down two or three hours later to end up with 15 topographical points, compared to the hundreds or thousands we get with the Kespry Drone."

D&T exemplifies how construction companies can benefit from a comprehensive drone-based analytics solution that goes far beyond traditional mapping applications.

"Our earthworks-specific aerial intelligence tools are designed with companies like D&T in mind that require granular, accurate and on-demand inventory management," said George Mathew, CEO and chairman of Kespry. "With Kespry, they're able to gather the insight that drives successful and profitable earthworks projects without having to compromise the safety of their employees. We're extremely pleased to help make the work lives of D&T's employees easier, safer and more productive."
