SAKS Analytics teams up with AntWorks

SAKS Analytics, a subsidiary of one of Sri Lanka’s largest and oldest conglomerates, has entered into a partnership with global artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligent automation company, AntWorks, in a bid to introduce disruptive innovation in automation, in Sri Lanka.

Leveraging AntWorks’ global automation expertise, the two companies are now working to introduce hybrid technological solutions in Sri Lanka, that seamlessly blend multiformat intelligent data ingestion with cognitive abilities and code free Robotic Process Automation powered by artificial intelligence to automate the back office and middle office seamlessly.

SAKS Analytics Managing Director, Jeevan Gnanam said, “Sri Lanka’s tech industry continues to develop at a commendable pace, but unfortunately we are yet to see the same kind of disruptive innovation on the same scale as advancements in most developed and emerging economies – particularly in relation to analytics and research capabilities.

This is why SAKS Analytics is now working to establish global partnerships that will serve to introduce such disruptive technologies to the domestic market. “The agreement with AntWorks represents a bold and vital step forward in this vision that promises to usher in the same kind of hard-nosed, data-driven approach to business that we see taking hold across the region,” he said.

Head Business Development, SAKS Analytics, Hariharan Padmanaban said, “Part of the real attraction with the services that SAKS is now able to offer is the unprecedented level of flexibility and adaptability that are the hallmarks of what AntWorks is doing with its cognitive and AI tools.

“Whether it is a large multinational or a micro-enterprise, we provide the capability to process large volumes of documents and perform advanced analytics that are usually very difficult to tease out of raw data.

This is information that will support intelligent and agile decision-making that provides optimized returns to the enterprise,” he said. Co-Founder and Group CEO of AntWorks, Asheesh Mehra said,

“Driven by the principle of ‘customer first’, we strive to be at Zero Distance to our customers to enable fast and fearless delivery of fresh technologies, this partnership with SAKS Analytics enables rapid adoption of our solutions in Sri Lanka, while maintaining Zero Distance from our customers.

“Autonomous operations are a vital part of how AntWorks approaches new markets and so in Sri Lanka, SAKS Analytics will utilize their knowledge of local dynamics, in creating unique products and solutions to address the needs of enterprises in Sri Lanka to enhance productivity, reduce time to market and increase customer delight. I am excited at the potential that lies ahead with this partnership,” he said.
