“With the close of our recent round, we look forward to delivering even more value to our customers by expanding our product offering to include deeper analytics, mystery shopper and employee training,” said CEO Hazman.
“We will continue to invest heavily in our technology, developing a better experience and further automating routine tasks by leveraging computer vision and machine learning,” he revealed.
