Drone Safe Register CEO Mark Boyt rounded up an incredible year in what he described as a challenging market in a live audience session this week.
The regular live sessions are aimed at being great opportunity for Boyt to update DSR members on changes in drone regulations, new business deals and pipeline opportunities.
The company has planned more throughout 2020 and guest speakers are lined up to take part.
Mark commented on how it has been a tough year for not only the drone market but across many industries due to Brexit uncertainty and future government.
He said: “I honestly thought we would go backwards in 2019. But through hard work and ongoing support of our members we have been able to generate hundreds of drone jobs. Now is the time to turn this into thousands.”
Adding: “The drone industry is still new, and there have been bumps in the road, but there are real signs that the commercial value of drone services is now being recognised. Drone Safe Register are positioned to make the most of these opportunities into 2020.”
In the live member update, many new products were announced with launches scheduled for Q1 of 2020 with one being a new customer online portal providing a one stop shop for private and commercial businesses looking to enjoy aerial imagery at competitive prices, a fully online service.
Boyt went on: “Making aerial photography and video available to all is one of our goals for 2020, and our new portal will make this possible. There’s nothing like this out there and we’ll be the first to market.
“Over the past year we’ve realised that aerial imagery from drones is just a part of what our members can offer. Between them there’s a wealth of experience in all sorts of photography and videography. I see DSR as the ideal platform to market, promote and distribute a whole range of services.”
In addition, DSR will also strengthen their relationship with insurance business Qlaims to support the launch of a new insurance product.
In wrapping up, Boyt touched on the new EASA regulations coming next year and said now at four years old, DSR is looking forward to what 2020 has to offer.
