Yembo, a software startup that uses deep learning technology to inventory items, landed a partnership with JK Moving Services, a Virginia-based moving company.
Sorrento Valley-based Yembo builds software that can survey items in advance of a move. Users can take a short video of each room that needs to be packed, and Yembo uses deep-learning technology to identify each chair, table and bed, then providing a quick quote from moving companies.
“Being able to survey a house or office by simply pointing and clicking a smart phone using the Yembo interface helps us instantly develop an inventory and estimate,” JK Moving Executive Vice President David Cox said in a news release. “Yembo’s product is now our virtual survey tool of choice.”
After testing Yembo’s product since the beginning of the year, JK will offer its software to its commercial, government and residential customers. JK estimated that the software can increase the number of visual surveys its team can complete in a day by up to 50 percent.
"JK Moving Services has been a great partner for Yembo since January,” Yembo CEO Siddharth Mohan said in a news release. “We are excited to enter into a deeper partnership with such a well- respected and premium brand.”
Mohan and Chief Technology Officer Zach Rattner founded Yembo in 2016. Both previously worked with robotics at Qualcomm Inc. before starting their own venture.
Last year, the company won second place and $20,000 at the John G. Watson Quick Pitch Competition.
