In addition, Salesforce Ventures has invested in Kespry to fuel its growth trajectory, with a focus on its AI-augmented insurance claims management capabilities which complement Salesforce Financial Services Cloud. Together, the companies will enhance the end-to-end digital experience for insurance clients and their customers by delivering accurate risk and damage assessment, loss adjustment expense reduction, and rapid claims payouts.

"Kespry is pleased to be extending our claims management solution to complement Salesforce's industry-leading financial services solution," said George Mathew, CEO and Chairman, Kespry. "Providing sensor-based aerial insights as a cloud service aligns perfectly with Salesforce's mission and approach. We're also enabling people with AI-augmented tools in other industrial sectors, including mining, aggregates and construction. This new funding will enable us to further accelerate our innovation into those sectors as well."

Kespry enables users to capture, analyze and share critical analytics about their businesses with a complete drone-based solution. Purpose-built for industrial use, yet simple enough for any user, Kespry's fully-integrated, cloud-enabled platform is a critical part of the everyday operations of hundreds of companies across North America, Europe, and Australia.

"Kespry is delivering industry-focused solutions by providing advanced AI, analytics, and autonomous drones that are easy to use and accessible to all," added Mathew. "We're applying that technology to solve important challenges in capturing and analyzing data in industries that are significant users of Salesforce products—especially in the insurance industry where our customers have led the way in integrating drone inspection data into their claims, risk, and underwriting processes."

Kespry is now leveraged by some of the largest insurance companies in the U.S. to resolve residential and commercial roof claims in as little as an hour. Kespry also reduces policy risk and drives preventative maintenance for commercial property inspections, while improving underwriting processes.

The Kespry solution includes a fully-autonomous drone, cloud data processing and analytics, and rapid integration into organizations' existing workflows for damage assessment and estimating. It is offered on a "drone-as-a-service" basis, with insurance, mining and aggregates, construction, and pulp and paper companies purchasing yearly drone, software, and services packages.
