This engine is completely automated, and requires very little in the way of training to use. Today, more than 70 hospitals and diagnostic centers are using Niramai, and their investors  have invested in $6.1 million (₹45 crore) into the startup so far.

Ai-powered delivery management platform FarEye

Noida-based Ai-powered delivery management platform FarEye. The idea for FarEye came to Gaurav Srivastava, Gautam Kumar, and Kushal Nahata while they were studying at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology. These were the early years of Indian e-commerce, between 2005 and 2009, and logistics was a huge headache for customers. You would get multiple calls from drivers, asking you for directions and sometimes if they couldn’t find your house, they’d just give up. Things only got worse in the coming years, and so in 2013, these three founders started FarEye as a SaaS-based solution to some of the problems they had seen.  Today, FarEye helps e-commerce and delivery companies manage their supply chain and logistics from single platform. Using AI-powered algorithms, companies can use FarEye to make real-time decisions on how many drivers they need in any given area, the most efficient routes for those drivers to take, and which packages should be bundled together for multiple deliveries in a specific area. Today, more than 150 companies across 30 countries are using FarEye, and their investors have invested in $150.7 million (₹1,110 crore) into the startup so far
