Interview: Fernando Moncayo Castillo
October 12. 2018

Fernando and his start-up are using machine learning, artificial intelligence and disruptive cloud-based platforms to revolutionize the inspection industry. What used to be done with pen, paper and maybe a camera is now done with an app and security that involves hackers. They are easily one of the most innovative and consequential companies in the supply chain.

 

+ What makes Inspectorio unique?

Frustrated by the slow and manual process of quality inspections, we created software to speed up the process. Our platform allows clients to chart out and speed up the productivity, transparency and efficiency of their whole supply chain.

+ What is one hurdle to innovation and how do you combat it?

Although we have seen an incredible response from the industry at large, the hurdle to innovation is the speed at which the organizations are willing to adapt. Organizations are thrilled with what Inspectorio brings to the table, but change can be difficult, especially within a large, highly-structured organization. Given this hurdle, we have made significant investments in our implementation and services to ensure a smooth and timely transition from old methods. We are confident that in the coming two to five years, every major retailer, vendor and factory will be powered by the Inspectorio network platform.

+ Who is an innovation leader outside of the denim/garment industry and why do you find them inspiring?

Bill Gates has been someone who has been an inspiration to me. In the 1980s, Gates created a vision for a one-platform-approach to office tools. To a certain degree, Inspectorio is doing the same in the production chain process, and much of our inspiration and vision came from Bill Gates.

+ Give us a book recommendation that speaks to the idea of innovation and tell us briefly what you like about it.

I highly recommend the book called Platform Revolution. It delivers a comprehensive analysis of how platforms use technology to match producers and consumers in a multi-sided marketplace.
