About Smart Picture Technologies
Smart Picture Technologies is disrupting the home and commercial field sales process by taking the traditional truck and tape measure estimation process and replacing it with a Computer Vision powered SaaS measurement platform. Fast and accurate quotes, estimates and proposals can now be accomplished virtually by simply snapping a picture with any smartphone, uploading the picture to the cloud and taking the required 2D or 3D measurements. The solution is device agnostic with no added hardware, special camera or measuring tape required and is accurate up to ¼ of an inch. This technology allows for faster response times and new ways to increase quality control, while avoiding the inefficient and costly practice of sending personnel back and forth to job sites. In addition, because Smart Picture leverages the device every consumer has in their pocket, the solution opens up countless direct-to-consumer business models. The patented and patent-pending technology powering Smart Picture has been in development for over three years and leverages the latest “Computer Vision” technology.
