Deepfinity was founded by 3 computer science students when they noticed how much time was spent at their student accommodation managing packages. Upon further investigating, Luca, Arthur and Alan, that in addition to student housing, parcels plagued co-working, residential, and office spaces.
Consequently, they build Parcel Tracker: an internal parcel management software. They have since grown the business to serve 35,000+ residents across 70+ buildings worldwide. (More on product: www.parceltracker.com)
