Our first Quantum Spatial Acquisition Partner summit got off to a very successful start today. We planned for about 40 participants. In the room today, we had 76 participants from all over the world.
The energy level of the partners – many of whom had flown overnight from Europe and Australia – was electrifying. Technology partners like Hexagon, Riegl, Trimble, Teledyne, Precision Hawk demonstrated their latest and greatest products in the areas of data acquisition cameras and sensors as well as UAVs (drones). There were some great presentations on the scientific and manufacturing advances made in the area of geospatial data capture.
All the 20 large operating partners who primarily help QSI capture data were present to share their strategies, their plans and their visions. There were some great discussions around some common industry challenges faced by all the partners and how to get ahead of the curve in those areas.
I talked about a future where we could move from a “transactional” level of partnership to a truly “strategic” level and what those words meant. I know this will take some time but, after having seen this in other industries, I am convinced that such partnerships are required to help partners as well as our customers.
