Local Tech Start Up wins big at NASSCOM AI Gamechangers

South African start-up Carscan has been named winner of the Transport & Logistics category at this year’s NASSCOM AI Gamechangers awards.

Carscan is a B2B SAAS computer vision platform for self-inspection in which their AI captures the accurate condition of a vehicle, detects damages, and obtains instant competitive quotes from suppliers for repair. Carscan have developed a world-class, low-cost, self-assessment platform that allows for full transparency throughout a vehicle’s life span.

Carscan works closely with businesses across the insurance, fleet management and vehicle repairer industries to help bridge the gaps that arise when dealing with 1.4 billion vehicles globally. Carscan ensures that insurance claims are accurately processed, in a secure environment which is tamper proof. Fleet managers know the exact state of every car, and where every piece of data about a vehicle generates insights to connect the owner with the right service provider at the right time. Another real benefit that their App provides is the real-time competitive quotes they can generate from workshops, repairers, tyre fitment, service centres and the like.

Carscan creates an easily accessible space for collaboration between all vehicle related industries.
