Embracing Drone Tech and AI-Driven

Virtual Asset Inspection


Harnessing the Power of Drones in Facility and Commercial Property Inspections

Drone technology has revolutionized facility and commercial property inspections. By leveraging drone images and data capture, property managers can gain unprecedented access to inaccessible or hazardous areas, conduct thorough inspections with greater speed and accuracy, and generate rich visual data for analysis and decision-making.

  • Enhanced Safety: Minimize the need for manual inspections in high-risk environments, boots-on-the-roof, and long-distance travel, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Time and Cost Savings: Streamline inspection processes, significantly reducing the time and resources required for comprehensive assessments and lowering the budget, allowing for more frequent inspections. 
  • Improved Accuracy: Capture detailed imagery and data from various angles for the entire property, enabling more precise measurements, take-offs, hazards, identifying issues, and potential maintenance needs.
  • Proactive Maintenance: Detects potential problems early, allowing for proactive maintenance interventions to prevent costly downtime and repairs.

Optimizing Insights with Automated Drone Flight and Virtual Asset Inspection Software

Pairing automated drone flights with Pointivo’s AI-driven asset inspection software platform takes facility and commercial property management to new heights. The platform creates virtual replicas of physical assets, allowing managers to see the entire site from their desks with up-to-date imagery for monitoring performance and optimizing operations. Combined with automated drone flights, AI-driven virtual assessment and measurement software offers unparalleled insights and actionable, scalable intelligence. The use cases range from roofs, facades, and parking lots to the HVAC systems, foliage, lighting, signage, and more.

  • Asset Monitoring: Continuously monitor asset performance and condition, facilitating proactive decision-making and optimization.
  • Predictive Analytics: Leverage historical data to anticipate maintenance needs, optimize resource allocation, and mitigate risks.
  • Remote Accessibility: Access virtual replicas of assets from anywhere, enabling remote monitoring and management, which is handy for geographically dispersed portfolios.
