So you’ve had an idea, which could potentially save you money, decrease risk or improve efficiency of your task, but you’re not sure if drones will be the answer. aetha can help by utilising many years of experience across dozens of different applications, enabling you to refine your concept and start the formation of your drone programme.
The next step is to start working out the feasibility of deploying a drone programme company-wide. Can it assist other departments? Can it be easily implemented? aetha can help by clearly defining the required roles for successful implementation and how effective they can be across your business.
Once a plan has been formed, it’s then crucial to start budgeting for the programme implementation, so ROI can be calculated, additional employment required and so on. As an authorised dealer for many UAS brands, aetha can help with costings and by producing the most competitive packages.
Training is one of the most crucial elements to any application. With drones, more complexities can be involved depending on the intended use. aetha works with a number of industry leading training partners, to ensure every client has the most appropriate and comprehensive training – not just limited to the classroom.
Procurement processes can be long and complicated, often resulting in missed opportunities. Sometimes you have to go to many different suppliers to get all the items you need, which can only complicate it further. aetha can act as a single-source for all your UAV requirements – from software, to UAV parts, we’ll do the boring the bit. Once we’re setup on your system, you don’t need to go anywhere else.
