Our clients are happy, our sellers are happy, we are happy. We achieved a fast pace of growth last year and tripled our revenue with Velou.

About Kashew

Kashew started in 2022 in San Francisco, California and is dedicated to reducing the 10.8 million tons of furniture waste that end up in landfills every year in the U.S. They quickly grew into an online marketplace for quality second-hand furniture. Kashew provides a marketplace platform for consignment stores that connects the seller to the customer. In addition, with features like inventory management and shipping, they offer essential tools for sellers to digitize their entire business.

Kashew’s business faced a critical challenge due to the time consuming nature of product uploads, which deterred sellers and more stores from selling online. Recognizing the critical need to streamline their operations and enhance the quality of their product listings to better serve their sellers and customers, Kashew sought a robust solution that could automate manual inputs and tailor product listings to meet the unique demands of a furniture-specific marketplace.

The Challenge

“Once you find yourself with an inventory that's over hundreds or thousands of items, it becomes so cumbersome that the sellers would rather keep their stores and their sales fully in-person rather than trying to digitize their business.”

What Velou brought to Kashew

AI Image Recognition

Without Velou: Manually entering product data is a time-consuming and error-prone process. Sellers often struggle to accurately describe their products, leading to inconsistent and incomplete listings. This manual approach not only consumes valuable time and resources but also hinders the growth of resale marketplaces like Kashew by deterring potential sellers.

With Velou: Velou's AI Image Recognition revolutionizes the product data enrichment process by automating the extraction of valuable information from uploaded product images. With Velou's AI Image Recognition, Kashew's sellers can simply upload images of their products. Leveraging advanced artificial intelligence algorithms, Velou intelligently analyzes product images with remarkable accuracy, extracting key attributes such as product type, dimensions, materials, colors, and more.

This level of precision and customization not only accelerates the listing process but also enhances the quality and consistency of product information across Kashew's platform.
