Drones. You might think of them only used for military purposes or hobbyists capturing aerial videos over their favorite campsites, but drones have been revolutionizing a variety of industries with their numerous commercial applications.
Botlink provides an end-to-end drone software system designed to help people use drones, especially in construction and agriculture. This allows users to automate flights from takeoff to landing, capture sensor data from a bird’s eye view, plan missions with the touch of a finger, and processes actionable data for smarter business decisions.
During flight, drones capture anywhere from hundreds to thousands of aerial images that need to be stored securely and shared quickly with colleagues to be put to good use. In the business world, time spent manually downloading and sharing drone results is time and money wasted.
This is where the Egnyte + Botlink integration comes into play.
Egnyte and Botlink partnered to help users quickly and safely share data with colleagues. Drone data, such as processed aerial maps, are automatically synced by Egnyte, keeping the data safe while allowing file sharing in one easy-to-access location. There are many benefits of the integration:
● Sync data automatically into the Egnyte platform
● All files can be accessed anywhere, on any device
● Organize files using the familiar and intuitive Egnyte user interface
● Users are able to safely share files with colleagues to improve collaboration
● Saves time and increases productivity
How Egnyte + Botlink improves your business workflow:
Construction project managers use Botlink to capture aerial imagery and process maps of worksites. Drones make regular flights to monitor progress from initial survey to project closeout. It’s important that managers have the ability to share their drone data with project estimators to give accurate bids, provide crew members with more purposeful planning and safety meetings, and inform investors of progress updates, and other stakeholders.
The Botlink + Egnyte integration makes it easy to share captured drone data with others. Users can make annotations, share comments, and mark up maps.
Egnyte provides Botlink users a central location to securely store their drone imagery, easily organize it by date and location, and quickly share it with collaborators to make more informed and unified decisions. Egnyte + Botlink helps professionals and industries streamline their workflows and improve bottom lines with more actionable drone data.

9 Tips to Improve Drone Flight Time
Drones are the talk of the town these days. Everywhere you go people are buzzing about them. They’re cool. They’re fun. They let you see the world from a spectacular bird’s-eye view. As great and revolutionary as these machines are (we may be just a touch biased), we’re going to go ahead, lay it all out on the table, and address one of their few shortcomings: flight times. As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour (which is probably the vast majority of pilots) so we wanted to give you some helpful tips (nine of them to be exact!) on how you can keep your drone in the air longer:
