Tobias Mangerich started working for Fluido almost three years ago when he relocated to Finland from Germany with his Finnish girlfriend. He has accustomed well to the Finnish lifestyle and work environment and even speaks the language a little. However, some things took more time to get accustomed to than others: “once in the beginning I found it weird when customers asked me to go to the sauna with them”, Tobias now looks back and smiles.
Back in Germany Tobias studied classic applied computer sciences. He worked in e-health sector for three years, mainly with radiology and clinic management software. This was until his friend called that a company in the financial sector in Frankfurt needed more staff. Tobias then worked there for three years as a Project Manager. Around 80 % of that work was salesforce.com related and that is how Tobias got interested in the salesforce.com ecosystem and later decided to apply for work at Fluido.
In order to connect the quadcopter to Salesforce we created a data acquisition functionality into the quadcopter controller which is an Android application communicating via WLAN. The original Android application supplied by Parrot is provided open source and this made the data acquisition customization very easy. All the flight data was delivered to Salesforce and stored in a FlightData object.
