Founder and CEO Richard Jelbert is an experienced technology Entrepreneur with a long track record of creating disruptive companies and products. With a background in big data analytics, Richard has spent much of his career commercialising emerging technologies.
Richard founded Vzzual in August 2013 because of the realisation that many businesses need to be able to understand their photographic and video content in order to deliver useful and compelling services. The trend towards cloud-based services is well understood but when combined with the spread of camera enabled phones, causing a tidal wave of images and video in every aspect of daily life, it was clear that no single company could deliver image-based big-data capability. Enter Vzzual, the first company to offer all of these facilities through a cost-effective easy to consume web services API.
Previous companies include co-founding Argogroup plc that was later sold to American testing company Ascom. In 2006 Richard co-founded the company that became MyDrive Solutions that operates in the emerging field of insurance telematics. Here Richard designed the underlying profiling methodology. He holds five patents in the data analytics area.
Vzzual now offers cost effective and scalable image processing in diverse markets such as government, brands and media, social media, insurance, consumer photo, photo library and more.
