DroneBase purchases Betterview’s aerial inspection software
Written by staff reporter
Drone services company, DroneBase, has acquired Betterview’s drone roof inspection software and services, establishing the company’s first foray into analytics. The new software aims to help insurers and property managers assess damage and mitigate risk for commercial properties, and gives customers access to years worth of aerial data.
“DroneBase’s mission is to provide businesses with fast, affordable, and reliable data to make better informed decisions, and we’ll continue to fulfill that mission by providing drone services to our analytics partners and an end-to-end solution for Betterview’s clients,” said Dan Burton, founder and CEO of DroneBase. “Having worked with Betterview for almost two years, we have been impressed with their platform and its solutions. We will continue to enhance the technology by pairing our trove of aerial data with analytics and artificial intelligence.”
“Since late 2017, DroneBase has been a trusted partner of Betterview and they have consistently proven to be reliable, fast, and customer-centric,” said David Lyman, Co-Founder and CEO of Betterview. “One of the benefits of this transaction is that it will allow P&C insurers to triage their drone inspections by quickly identifying high-risk properties via Betterview’s platform or API. When carriers need to dig deeper, they can order a drone inspection from DroneBase and receive a detailed roof report that contains analysis along with high-resolution imagery.”
The new software is currently in use by Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies.
