Pittsburgh, PA – December 12th, 2016 – Identified Technologies, the leading provider of automatic commercial drone mapping and tracking for industrial job sites announced today it has been selected by Keystone Consultants, Inc. to support their energy client base. Established in 1991 Keystone is a rapidly growing multi-disciplined consulting firm which solves the issues of the energy business in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. Historically, it would take a survey team about half day to survey each well pad. By using Identified Technologies, Keystone was able to survey 6 well pads in a single day and received their data in near real-time, increasing employee productivity by over 70%.
Currently, Keystone is working for a number of major energy companies, and will use Identified Technologies fully-integrated mapping and measuring systems to survey energy sites quickly, reduce capital expenditures, and avoid technological obsolescence. David Stewart, Vice President at Keystone said, We had been investigating commercial drone solutions for some time, and Identified provided the quickest and most cost effective point of entry into the market. We considered doing this in-house, but we would have had to hire people who were used to processing this kind of data, and legally set ourselves up to do the work. Identified provided a very attractive mechanism to be up and running in a short period of time.
Dick Zhang, CEO of Identified Technologies comments Speed, simplicity and safety are the key reasons were the leading provider of automatic commercial drone mapping and tracking for industrial job sites. In a highly regulated industry like energy, drone mapping can significantly reduce injuries as the drone can go places your crew cannot. Generally, clients see survey savings of 70%-90% on their projects, and when you factor in avoided personnel injuries and early detection of problems, the value per job is often in the millions of dollars.
