The Challenge.

Counting inventory manually can be very difficult especially if the amount is big. Imagine the scale of errors, delays and distress that can cause. Counting material is a very time-consuming and hence not at all scalable activity but at the same time its requirement is high.

A Fortune 500 forestry company based in Latin America was using drones to capture images of the heaps of wooden logs which were spread over miles. These wooden logs are sold to various timber and furniture manufacturers and need to be counted to manage inventory and supply. The counting process was delaying the sales process. Not only was it time-consuming to count logs using drones but it was also prone to errors. Even though the drones were meant to improve the process but there were still some challenges faced.

  • This process still required manual efforts making it very difficult to scale it during the peak sales season. Which sometimes resulted in the loss of business.
  • There was still scope for human error.
  • Collusion between workers and vendor, led to dissatisfaction among the buyers

At AIndra Labs, we have a built a better way to count the inventory using artificial intelligence.

The Solution.

SmartCount™ is a Cloud-based solution with the capability to process all the images captured by the drones for the forestry companies in real time. This video analytics platform is capable of counting wooden logs, measure quality and volume of wooden logs by processing the images taken by drones.
