Counting inventory is manually intensive, expensive and usually full of mistakes. The Countifi team has worked with clients such as Delta Air Lines, Iberia Air,The Emirates Group, Emirates Air, Duke Raleigh Hospital and North Carolina A&T Real Estate Foundation. Our team is very hands-on to ensure we understand the nuances of our client's processes and implement the Countifi Platform to add value almost immediately.
The Countifi Al platform uses computer vision and deep learning to take pictures of inventory to automatically and accurately identify the items inside the image, saving time and money associated with manual inventory counts. The Countifi Platform reduces counting time and costs by 30%-40% during the first 12-24 months of implementation alone. As more images are gathered, the deep learning processes ensure accuracy rates average between 97% and 99%. The Al-based Countifi Inventory Management Platform uses cutting-edge computer vision and deep learning models to simplify the inventory counting and management process by adding transparency and accountability.
