In our specific area of specialism within the world of aviation and support, we meet many interesting professional business people and teams. All are enthusiastically involved in technology, aviation equipment and aero capability delivery for a wide range of applications.
These businesses are often procuring systems selected based on a wide variety of reasons, including: brand preference, politics, trends and even the level of technology packed into it; often sadly not based on a logical procurement strategy.
We have many years of experience in supporting businesses that are developing optimised aviation based capabilities. We assist with initial concept and strategy development through to integration and in service commissioning.
You may have heard advice like:
1. Never go shopping without a list!
2. Never go food shopping on an empty stomach!
Why is this advice given? Because if we do not follow this advice:
1. We over spend against our budget.
2. We come back with purchased items or services that were not essential.
3. We purchase items or services that we will never use.
In our opinion this advice is just as relevant to Drone equipment capability procurement, as it is to domestic procurement whilst admiring the Drone sales and marketing machine that is successfully focused on the client’s attraction for new technology and gadgets.
Our recommended “best practice” is not to focus on a solution (Drone System) before you know your requirement and understand when you will realise a return on the investment. Our advice is develop a shopping list first, before you go shopping, or before you engage with a salesperson.
