Cansel to Distribute Microdrones Fully Integrated Drone Systems Throughout Canada

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QC, March 28, 2018 – Cansel is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement to distribute Microdrones integrated systems. This agreement furthers Microdrones’ distribution throughout Canada and helps customers to adopt drone technology for geospatial applications.  

“We were looking for a reliable and accurate UAV solution to expand our offering. We took a careful look at some existing customers who were already working with Microdrones. All were impressed by how fast, accurate and reliable the systems are- so we decided to make Microdrones systems available to all of our customers,” says Martin Trudelle, Vice President for Geospatial Business at Cansel. “The mdSolutions lineup from Microdrones meets the needs of busy professionals who demand field to finish productivity and provides a huge benefit and cost savings to our clients in the field. Take the mdMapper1000DG system, as an example. It uses direct georeferencing to improve processing workflow. Plus, Microdrones systems are compliant with Transport Canada; that makes it easy to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate.”

Phil Kern, Trimble Distributor Manager for Microdrones, added “Cansel is a highly respected leader, with a growing and dynamic organization. They work hard to offer a complete, end-to-end solution. Cansel is exactly the type of distributor that we want to have representing Microdrones.” 

Sebastien Long, Sales Manager for Microdrones in Canada, said, “Cansel is highly regarded throughout the industry. I’m thrilled to work with the Cansel sales teams and their customers. By helping customers realize the benefits of this technology, we’re improving the way work gets done.”
