Hamburg-based drone data and solutions provider, FlyNex, joins the EIT Digital Accelerator to reach new markets and expand their international foothold. FlyNex helps companies bring drones into their business operations to gather and analyse data in a new and efficient way.

Founded in 2015, FlyNex aims to bring automated workflows for drone data projects to any type of application in a number of industries.

Gaining business insights with traditional data generating processes is expensive, time-consuming and often dangerous. For example, workers risk their safety scaling a wind turbine to gather information, often ending up collecting data of poor quality that’s difficult to share between teams.

FlyNex’s corporate data mining platform is based on industrial business intelligence companies using drones in fully integrated processes. Their drone-based technology helps corporations save up to 90% of the costs that traditional data mining processes typically involve. The platform helps to significantly increase the quality of the information and business insights.

Helping Companies Collect & Manage Data With Drones

FlyNex helps companies in energy, waste, construction, and real estate run their projects by using drones to collect and distribute data quickly and accurately. These companies usually have over €50 million in revenue and a large number of distributed assets to manage.

To be as efficient as possible, FlyNex’s drones arrive pre-configured and fully compliant with any operational system, allowing teams to connect their digital planning process with the drones seamlessly. They can then systematically share and execute their operations, automate their drone flights and completely streamline the data generation processes.

With FlyNex, companies can have their sites closely monitored and surveyed, gaining valuable insights into site management and operations. They can then use the insights to make their processes more efficient, providing value to all project stakeholders.

An All-in-one Enterprise Suite to Streamline Drone Operations

To manage the drone projects, FlyNex offers a complete and fully managed enterprise suite for their clients. The FlyNex Enterprise Platform holds everything from planning drone flights, drone-based data mining, and AI powered analytics that deliver fast, reliable, and high-quality results.

The FlyNex Enterprise Suite allows corporations to manage any number of members, teams, partners, resources, and storage space. In addition, companies can use the platform to train their employees in order to enhance their skills, and to qualify teams to work more efficiently.

Companies can also connect suitable drones with the FlyNex Connect App to make use of automated flights with direct streams for object-based data management in their desired application. The FlyNex Connect App allows teams to connect the right drone to a specific use case, track and automise all flight missions and operations. The app also lets them store all data securely, giving them full control of their operations.

Boosting FlyNex’s International Growth

FlyNex currently supports several major businesses in Germany, including Deutsche Telekom and Mitnetz Strom. In 2018, they released their end-user solution Map2Fly, which was accessed by over 100,000 users, and has processed over 12 million location queries since its launch.

To further expand their business and accelerator international growth, Flynex has joined the EIT Digital Accelerator. The EIT Digital Accelerator’s team will help the German scaleup connect with new customers and move towards establishing their drone solution as a go-to choice for businesses.

Andreas Dunsch, Co-Founder and CEO of FlyNex, comments: “FlyNex is serving enterprise clients for the industry verticals of energy, real estate and construction to match the specific use case requirements with our established solutions for commercial drone projects. With EIT Digital we want to execute our mission on an international level, transforming corporations into digital organisations using drones for data mining and business intelligence.”
