A New Dimension in Business: Drone Technology Meets Centerpoint Connect

A New Dimension in Business

Drone Technology Meets Centerpoint Connect

Together with GSI, Centerpoint Connect Roofing Software is happy to integrate drone footage/3d modeling to its platform. 

Drone footage has become an invaluable tool in the roofing industry. Many companies are finding drone footage beneficial due to its ability to provide a comprehensive aerial view, increased inspection efficiency and accuracy, time and labor savings, and the ability to document project evidence. Providing 3D footage to your client can also aid in simplifying client communication.

Adding this type of footage has previously been problematic due to the nature of the files. 3D files typically are quite large which can be difficult to manipulate, store, and share. 

With Centerpoint Connect, you can now copy the interactive URL that is provided by the GSI software and paste it into your property’s data, which will house the file within Centerpoint.

Simplifying the Process

Working with our partner at GSI, Kerrick Willis, there are several ways to adopt the drone process and obtain the footage. One of the most simple ways to do this, is to assign someone with a roofing background in house to learn the drone-flying process. Kerrick recommends this process as it is the easiest way to get going and most cost effective and GSI will train your assigned teammate to do this. 

You can also hire a videographer/drone pilot to complete the footage for you, however,  it will be a little more costly ongoing. The pilot can connect with Kerrick as well to understand what is needed, but, keep in mind that it may be harder to train a drone pilot to understand roofing rather than a roofer to understand how to operate the drone. Regardless, GSI can provide the flight path directly to the drone operator if utilizing a contracted individual.

Traditional reports typically require workers to climb onto roofs, which can be dangerous and may lead to accidents. Drones can eliminate the need for individuals to physically access the roof, reducing the risk of injuries and ensuring the safety of both workers and clients. Through the drone footage, different deficiencies can be identified directly through the detailed footage.
