Ware, a San Francisco-based company recently acquired by Gather AI, combines the smartest Skydio drones with their powerful software to deliver accurate inventory reports, straight into customer's WMS. It works at the intersection of drones and cutting-edge artificial intelligence. Take indoor drones and combine them with proprietary AI and you've got Ware — the first scalable solution for warehouse inventory automation.
When there are drones flying around indoors, one thing is certain: there’s no room for error. Like every project that works within the pre-established limits, looking for innovation and creation of new ways of making things, the biggest challenge is that there’s no one to copy, and nowhere to learn from - you have to create, design, define, and make your journey.
We had to deliver value in real time, in an accurate and trustworthy way that would allow warehouse operators to have a clear picture of their warehouse’s status - usable data that could allow them to make logistic, stocking, and distribution decisions. We used React.js for the front end which allowed us to create a modern interface with an intuitive user experience that adapts to a warehouse user’s profile.
At present, Ware is a resounding success in the facilities that acquire it, and it’s one of the startups in which we, having seen many go through our offices, have great expectations of enormous growth. The constant feedback that we get from Ware users always refers to usability, the value of the data, and how it has made their operations much easier, given that traditionally they were done manually. We have also been told that even from a marketing point of view it’s a great asset because... let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to see drones flying inside a warehouse?
