We are proud to announce that FotoNow closed 3-million Euro seed funding from Join Capital and angel investors. It is an important milestone for our company and it highlights once again the importance of our solution.
We create powerful vision technology for quality assurance in manufacturing. Since 2019, when the solution was launched, we have fundamentally changed the industry of quality inspection. We combine deep learning and computer vision to provide production lines with robust and highly accurate quality automation technology. This sets new standards in the visual inspection sector.
FotoNow (now: 36ZeroVision) was developed by the world-renowned AI-engineer Zeeshan Karamat and manufacturing expert Florian Ziesche.
Zeeshan, as a leading software developer, created a robust and highly precise technology that did not exist on the market. Florians experience in the manufacturing industry has helped to analyze quality management in producing companies and to identify exactly what they need.
With proprietary algorithms, data processing techniques and libraries, FotoNow delivers above-human-level results and overcomes the biggest challenge of vision solutions. Working in real manufacturing conditions, like changing lighting, objects in movement and high-frequency vibrations.
Several European and global companies are already convinced by our solution. Thus improving quality management significantly and reduced the defect rate of their end products dramatically. The feedback from our customers who have already installed FotoNow in their plants is that our solution delivers incredible results and far outperforms any existing technology on the market.
We envision completely changing the way quality control is performed in manufacturing. With FotoNow, manufacturers can finally dispense time-consuming and error-prone manual inspections and relieve their employees from monotonous tasks. By fully automating quality control, manufacturers can improve the quality of their finished products and become more productive and sustainable.
With the funding, we want to invest more in Research and development and especially expand our Customer Success team to be able to respond to the huge demand we receive. This will bring us closer to our goal of ensuring quality increase in manufacturing plants around the globe.
