Drone-based ana- lytics are playing an ever-increasingly critical role in the construction industry and we're pleased to integrate Kespry's technology into our comprehensive portfolio for construction clients." The combination of the Kespry aerial intelligence platform's ease of deployment, cost- and time-savings, and its interoperabil- ity with John Deere WorkSight made it an ideal offering for John Deere dealers nationwide.
