As a company, where is Agrex.ai positioned in the industry today?
Agrex.ai has reached a point where the product has been built in the form that clients desire. Currently, a large number of consumers are using our products and providing us with regular feedback. We're taking that feedback and using it to add a lot of new features, address some bugs, and generally improve the product. The customers who use our product are the ones that promote it in the industry. And, unlike most of our competitors our solution is the most comprehensive in the video analytics area.
What are the latest challenges that Agrex.ai identifies for its clients and how do they help the clients cope up with the challenges?
The most typical thing we assist with is lowering supervisory costs and, as a result, increasing compliance with their own SOPs. Clients face huge difficulties in terms of personnel shortages. They must engage more supervisors to supervise each manpower they hire. So we automate a lot of monitoring to reduce the amount of staff necessary and, as a result, the supervisory costs. Because some of the SOPs that they have established inside the organization may not have been followed effectively our solutions assist in the compliance of the SOPs, which improves resource utilization and, in some cases, increases revenue all while lowering expenses.
What is the USP that sets Agrex.ai apartfrom the rest of its competitors?
Our USP is that we have vertical integration across all of the industries and services. Everything is done inhouse, from hardwaredesign, hardware fabrication, software design, software development, to maintenance, and support, which includes both remote and physical on ground help. We don't usually employ outside vendors or partners everything is done inhouse, which means we can have a lot tighter grip on product quality and handle problems much faster. We also have a very short turn around time from the time the client requests to the time it is completed.
