We are into the business automation. In today’s world, everyone is going through paperless companies and automation is because they want to optimize their time. Everyone wants to optimize manual efforts to reduce the manpower as well where computer can do a small minimal work. If we talk about, manufacturing and IT industry, if we can create a project directly transfer to someone and they can handle complete task automatically then why do we need any manpower for that. So, definitely our objective is to make businesses automated and streamline to be very precise.

In between to that part, there is an inventory management. Currently, everything is going through excel. They are managing a lot of paper work. But there is an engagement of time, manpower. So, we are helping them to reduce their time to optimize their time and to give them, around 86-90% of complete streamline of business.
