Malaysia’s Aerodyne expands to Europe via pact with Quanto & Taku International

New Straits Times – January 5, 2021.

KUALA LUMPUR: Aerodyne Group, a Malaysia-headquartered international DT3 (drone tech, data tech and digital transformation) solutions provider, is expanding to Europe.

Aerodyne said it had signed a partnership agreement with Germany-based Quanto AG and Taku International LLC, through its Europe-based Aerodyne Europe UAV Ltd.

“The aim is to expand Aerodyne’s pioneering drone solutions and services to potential customers in Austria, Switzerland and Germany,” the company said in a joint statement today.

Quanto is a leading IT and management consultancy in the DACH (comprises Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region.

Quanto has extensive expertise in large-scale project management, SAP solutions, cybersecurity, IoT (internet of things) and AI (artificial intelligence) solutions.

Taku International, as a technology strategy and implementation company, brings to the partnership its expertise in IoT, AI, and aviation-based sensor technologies for both manned and unmanned aircrafts, as well as related services.

“Quanto and Taku will offer Aerodyne’s smart drone solutions and innovative data analytics technologies to businesses across industries. This includes the DT3 company’s AI-powered, end-to-end cloud-based asset management solution, ‘vertikaliti’,” Aerodyne group chief operating officer Rossi Jaafar said.

The partnership reflected Aerodyne’s deep-rooted spirit in harnessing mutual synergies with reputable tech solution providers within our geographic markets, he added.

“This strategic collaboration will benefit our German, Swiss and Austrian markets with optimum value proposition for drone services with cutting-edge intelligence and analytics that are second to none.

“I am very much looking forward to the partnership with Aerodyne. We observe a clear market trend for DT3 solutions, integrated in the backend systems of our customers,” said Quanto managing partner Jens Brakhage.

“Advanced systems, like SAP S/4HANA, offer the chance to handle information delivered by drone solutions,” he added.

Karin Hollerbach, managing member of Taku, said the collaboration was an exciting example of what is possible when organisations with complementary skillsets came together.

“It enables us to bring drone data acquisition and integration solutions to our customers that no one of our three companies could do on their own,” Hollerbach added.
