Agent Factory Announces Collaboration With Microsoft To Enable Smart Logistics Solutions With Advanced 3D Vision Technologies

Tel Aviv, Israel /PRNewswire/ - AGENT FACTORY LTD., based in Israel, announces its collaboration with Microsoft's Azure Depth Platform program, aimed at democratizing cloud connected 3D sensing. In this collaboration, Agent Factory leverages advanced 3D sensing technologies by Microsoft in its AI solutions, to advance automation, digitalization and optimization of logistics operations.

Building a fully automated warehouse and logistics solution from the grounds-up is rarely an option for many companies. This is where Agent Factory's Smart Logistics solutions come in - allowing companies of all sizes to harness the power of AI and 3D sensing. This solution is deployed without a significant up-front investment, and integrates seamlessly with existing workflows.
