A successful Series A-1 fundraising round of $17 million has been announced by Gather AI, a leading supplier of AI-powered inventory management systems for warehouses and superior computer vision. Bain Capital Ventures led the round, and Bling Capital, Expa, Dundee Venture Capital, and Tribeca Venture Partners also participated. With this new round of funding, Gather AI has now raised $34 million, which will be put toward the company's expansion plans.

Conventional inventory control techniques frequently depend on labor-intensive manual procedures, including cycle counting via barcode scanning, which can lead to errors and inefficiencies in operations. The creative solutions from Gather AI take on these problems by using computer vision technology on autonomous drones to deliver deeper data insights than traditional techniques. This helps warehouses to minimize revenue loss from improper inventory management and streamline their operations.

Partner at Bain Capital Ventures Ajay Agarwal praised Gather AI for its innovative technology and broad commercial adoption, which set it apart from other venture-backed businesses in the industry. Along with other outstanding firms in the sector that are utilizing AI and software in the real world, he expressed excitement about the company's addition to the portfolio of Bain Capital Ventures.

When compared to conventional techniques, Gather AI's solution dramatically speeds up the inventory monitoring process by using drones with artificial intelligence (AI) to roam warehouses independently. By extracting important data from photos, including barcodes, text, and empty spots, the system gives warehouse managers access to an easy-to-use online dashboard where they can view real-time inventory insights. Clients have reported significant returns on investment, including a discernible decrease in errors in warehouse inventory.

The smooth integration of Gather AI's solution into NFI's warehouse operations led to a notable boost in productivity, as noted by Cody Merritt, Director of Solution Design and Innovation at NFI. The CEO and co-founder of Gather AI, Sankalp Arora, highlighted how AI-powered cameras are revolutionizing supply chain traceability and compared it to the 1980s use of barcodes.

Bringing together a team with deep learning, autonomy, and computer vision experience, Gather AI was founded in 2017 by Sankalp Arora, Daniel Maturana, and Geetesh Dubey. The company has grown quickly; last year it served twice as many warehouses and had a 2.5-fold rise in bookings. Gather AI, which plans to increase its activities this year, is well-positioned for future growth due to the robust market demand and customer expansion
