Gather AI Offers Warehouses the First Drone-Powered Inferred Case Count and Location Occupancy Capabilities


Today, Gather AI, the market leader in computer vision-based AI for warehouse inventory monitoring, announces two new capabilities - inferred case counting and location occupancy. The industry-first capabilities enable warehouses to get automated, digitized counts and location utilization reports, unlocking higher on-time shipment rates while reducing dedicated counting labor.

Warehouse operators must know the correct inventory levels in each location to ship on time and optimize space utilization. According to the Warehousing Education & Research Council (WERC) 2023 DC Measures Annual Survey & Report, the average warehouse meets shipping deadlines only 96% of the time and has a cube utilization of 81%. Counting cases and monitoring inventory inaccuracies manually is slow and aggravates these challenges.

With the Gather AI solution, warehouses can scan up to 900 pallets per hour. Drones take pictures of each location. The AI analyzes the pictures, reading multiple barcodes and text and detecting empty locations. With today's release, the solution will show inferred case counts for full and partial pallets and location occupancy percentages on the customer web dashboard, reducing the time and labor of verifying case counts. It will also help warehouses find space to consolidate inventory, avoiding honeycombing.

"Several customers require us to count cases as part of our cycle counting program," says AJ Raaker, Director Of Warehouse Development at Taylor Logistics Inc., a leading third-party logistics provider. "Using Gather AI's drone inventory monitoring and the inferred case count feature is 87% more efficient than having our team do physical cycle counting. The efficiency gain enables our team to prioritize revenue-generating direct labor activities."

New Offerings:

Gather AI CEO and Co-Founder Sankalp Arora, Ph.D., says, "Our mission is to bring unprecedented real-time inventory insights to warehouse operators. Our computer vision and AI analyze inventory images offering warehouse operators access to a richer source of information than barcodes. Our new inferred case counting and location occupancy capabilities push the art of what's possible while solving for error-prone, labor-intensive tasks for our customers."
