How do you rate India’s readiness to technology like AI, ML? And what are the technologies you are using for your services?
India ranks third in the South-east Asia market on readiness with technology like AI and ML. Current dynamism and trust towards innovations are making it tough for companies to get completely automated, but I’m sure it’s changing at a good pace. Startups have adopted AI and ML quickly than an enterprise company, which is very promising.
We’ve built our own platform which is AI and ML enabled, due to APIs, Toolyt can get integrated with any of the third party enterprise applications. We’ve successfully done the integration with SAP, sales force, Oracle and Zoho books and have readily available plugins.
Technology is changing rapidly so is the risk quotient. How are you expanding your offerings in alignment with this?
Though it’s very costly, we only partner with tested technology, for Maps we are using Google Maps, for data storage we are using AWS Cloud which is RBI compliant. Our existing clients include GE Healthcare, which has one of the best due diligence teams across the globe. This itself proves a lot.
What innovations have you planned for the rest of 2019?
We are actively working on making the user interface more better and smarter. Sales representative using Toolyt should spend more with customers, not with Toolyt App. Our plans are to increase AI-based 300 KPIs and suggestions by 2x which are created especially for Non-banking Financial Companies, Bank and Insurance companies.
