Adit Chhabra: Physical monitoring of businesses is inefficient and expensive – the cost of monitoring compliance is approximately $ 500 per employee per year.

It’s important to have a solution that can make the most of this data and do so without disrupting your current operations or setup. This is one of the reasons why we decided to create a video intelligence platform that can integrate with the existing infrastructure.
