Plagued by operational inefficiencies and high costs, the $60,000 billion logistics industry provides a huge opportunity to FarEye. We are here to streamline logistics in all the industry verticals.”
Established in 2013 by Kushal Nahata, Gaurav Srivastava and Gautam Kumar, FarEye was launched with an aim to solve the complicated last mile delivery issues on a mobile platform. The aim of FarEye was to solve the critical problems faced by any business – real time coordination between employees on the go, job execution and customer requests; by moving operations on a mobile. Through FarEye’s automation software companies can schedule & dispatch jobs, monitor execution and analyze performance; all in real time – making enterprises more effective and streamlined. With this FarEye helps companies in selling the experience and not just the product.

On an average FarEye has been able to increase first time successful job attempts by 22% and save 2.3 man –hours per employee per day.
Mr. Gautam Kumar, Co-Founder, FarEye further adds “We don’t believe ‘one solution fits all’ mantra – we believe that each client has unique requirements and should be provided with a tailor – made solution to address critical operational challenges. In today’s digital age where brand loyalty is redundant, we ensure that our customers deliver on-time commitment and provide exemplary services to their end customer.”
According to the Mr. Gaurav Srivastava, CTO & Co-Founder “It is a known fact that logistics is both- the key to success and cause for failure. We understood that logistics segment required streamlining and restructuring to cater to the ever-growing e-commerce segment in India. Having foresight at that time, we decided to focus on logistics management with technology rather than logistics infrastructure. Business growth in the logistics sector would directly relate to improved service delivery and customer satisfaction across businesses.”
