Innovator Intelligence: Inspectorio—Building a Digital Ecosystem Through AI to Improve Quality Control and Compliance Monitoring
This report forms part of our Innovator Intelligence series, which focuses on emerging companies that are disrupting traditional retail and fueling innovation across the retail value chain.
Inspectorio is a technology startup that offers a solution to improve supply-chain inspections, by digitalizing the quality control and compliance monitoring processes across the apparel, accessories and footwear supply chain using mobile, web and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
- The company offers a cloud-based web and mobile Software-as-a-Service platform (SaaS) that allows retailers, brands, vendors and factories to improve supply-chain efficiency, visibility and productivity.
- Inspectorio’s technology is used by more than 2,800 organizations participating in supply-chain ecosystems of the world’s largest retailers, brands, vendors and factories.
- Supply-chain inspections—i.e., quality control and compliance monitoring— still largely rely on inefficient manual paper-based processes. However, more and more companies are recognizing the need to invest in digital systems to improve their operations, leaving behind those that fail to innovate.
- Inspectorio is planning to expand its platform capabilities to include production tracking, responsible sourcing verification and to integrate Internet of Things (IoT) for the verification of manufacturing locations.
