ehicle tracking systems are becoming increasingly important in larger cities and are more secure than other systems. Vehicle trackers not only provide location-based service but through this the realtime performance of the vehicle can also be monitored.
Nowadays, as soon as one gets out of the house, the most used word is to send your location. Just as the location comes on the phone, you click on it and your mobile starts showing the way. All this is done through amazing GPS. GPS service is a satellite-based service that provides the location, position, and timing of the device along with other information. It is also used for protection. When someone is in trouble, the person’s location can be detected using GPS and transmitted to get help. You will be happy to know that India has also got its own GPS. Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) is the name of Indian GPS, which consists of Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) and GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation (GAGAN). Together, it consists of 11 satellites. It provides completely accurate information about 1500 kilometers from the borders across the country —it also has an extended service area which covers the equatorial region. The ‘NavIC’ system launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has been recognized by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). This recognition was received in 10 June 2021
November 2020. According to ISRO, the Maritime Safety Committee of IMO has given the green signal to NavIC to help it navigate the sea while meeting all operational needs. It is fully functional from June 2019 and has been approved by 3GPP for wider commercial adoption.

Pillars for Elena’s long-standing success The company’s vision of continuous innovation through R & D and dedicated focus in this domain are the reasons that have made Elena stand out among the rest. Innovation is one of their four pillars and is the core of the company’s business model. Elena Geo Systems is focused only on this niche domain of NavIC based monitoring. Of NavIC, By NavIC, and For NavIC. It is important to understand that navigation is focused on geography and not on IT/Communications/Electronics. This orientation helped the company to achieve its status as a leader in a short time frame. The company customizes the solutions based on the requirements of the users, which is not the case with other vendors. Elena’s products are indigenously developed through research and development. Others use a mix of components from various vendors to provide a solution. The errors in one component may lead to errors in other components of the system. Their systems cannot be extended to support NavIC and will have to be replaced.

“The requirement for having an Indian system can be fulﬁlled only if ground-based electronics and solutions are available what we call as a downstream application developed for utilizing our satellites. This is where we were focusing and we started Elena Geo Systems. The Indian Government launched its satellite system commencing from 2008 after realizing the importance of the Satellite-based Navigation System.
During the Kargil War, as per information available on social media, the American GPS was denied to India. We found that we needed to have someone dedicated to work in the navigation domain”, Lt Col V S Velan commented. Elena: someone who shows the path, someone who throws light on the new path.

Now or Never - Sky is not the limit
The Anchor of Elena Elena Geo Systems’ status and respect in the navigation industry is exceptional with their plethora of unique, innovative, and custommade services, which not only speak highly of their handpicked team of industry experts and masterminds but also their unmatched leader, company’s founder, Lt Col V Shanmugavelan.
Lt Col V Shanmugavelan, an Army Veteran, is a subject matter expert in Satellite-Based Navigation. He has four PG degrees, and six diplomas/certiﬁcate courses linked to this domain. He was a sponsored research scholar of MoD to IIT Kharagpur. In 2012, he was trained by GIZ of Germany to understand German technology and to bring it to India. Being a founding member of the Integrated Space Cell (ISC), he is involved in NavIC from the inception stage since Jun 2008. He was part of the ISRO team for trial evaluation of the GLONASS-based Multi-GNSS receivers and simulators. He was a member of the committee to draft the IndoRussian GLONASS signal sharing agreement of 2010, this was signed by the Prime Ministers of India and Russia in Dec 2010. He was System Manager for the development of monitoring systems and GIS for the armed forces, from Jun 2003 till Jun 2011, when he moved to IIT Kharagpur. He is
involved in the induction of GPS /GNSS products from 1998, into the Indian Armed Forces. He admires Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam the most. “A soldier’s life is dedicated to the country; this cannot be compared to any other service. One has to experience it to believe it. In the Kargil war, more than 100 soldiers’ death can be directly attributed to the GPS denial by the USA. This made me resolve to do something for them in return so that his situation does not arise in the future”, Lt Col V Shanmugavelan stated. The Key Achievements From an early entrant in the market to a leadership position in the NavIC-based monitoring solutions domain, it was truly a satisfying eﬀort. Elena is the only company on a date to have NavIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation) processor on a commercial basis. Its B2D module has no equivalence internationally. It provides the complete spectrum of ‘Locating and Monitoring Devices’ with absolute reliability and an extremely high degree of accuracy. The range and depth of Elena’s presence are unmatched and can be demonstrated. Amongst many great customer experiences, their project for JSPL, Patratu plant, in 2013, where the project changed the way they
perceived this technology is a special one as team Elena implemented many ‘ﬁrsts’ in the monitoring domain. The Driving Force Elena is a group of numerous creative, highly-skilled, and passionate professionals. Talents from diﬀerent social foundations with comparable interests and enthusiasm for innovation in navigation make the Elena group remarkable. Everyone in the team is excited and consistently looking for cutting-edge innovations to help users in running their tracking processes easily. It’s not about the Ideas, it’s tied in with getting thoughts going and that can show just with the cooperation. Elena has a core team and technical teams which focus on a speciﬁc part of development. The technical team is hired based on their technical capabilities. The core team is taken up after a long process and ﬁltration of suitable candidates. The company looks for interest in the candidates and gives them a free hand on developing their skills.

• What were the initial challenges you faced? As I started the company after leaving my job as a system manager in Logistic company and after a gap of year in 2006 started small setup to cater initial lead of GIS solution. So at that time, everything new and working in town lack of technology people as mostly went to metro cities for a better opportunity. But being having software development exposure of logistic company solution and with few team members started the journey with some ups and downs initially. Belongs to small-town middle-class families without any business background, being recently married at the time of job left. it’s my wife’s courage and support which made me to startup .. parents and friends support made my mind to
start the Indtrack. So the journey was not easy saw many hurdles and lack of fund initially.. when own people shows trust on you and supports you, then sail it. • How were the ﬁrst few years of your Indtrack Technologies? The journey from the very ﬁrst day is interesting and we keep getting interesting projects in B2B and B2C segments. Our expertise is utilized in some good projects, which was supposed to be done by some other company but due to delay in deliveries and their pressure to demonstrate the feature and start monitoring the vehicle movements by authorities, so our team was able to do so. in B2B initially, we provided a GIS map viewer so the Company used it in their solution with its GIS data, we able to provide a garbage collection solution by integrating own map
engine and customizable functionalities for one oﬀshore client, in B2C we provided GPS Vehicle Tracking Devices with a customized software solution for coal mines carrier vehicles. There were learning phase for developers as well due to a new type of requirements and adapting multiple technologies and using it eﬀectively. • Which was that point that triggered the growth of the company? As mentioned above, we kept getting interesting and challenging projects so it helped us to learn and the market started keeping faith in our capabilities and deliverables. So we growing slowly and steadily. As our services are economical and we do not do many things at the same time so growth in all terms with slow pace. www.theenterpriseworld.com 19

ONLY TO SEE HOW FAR YOU HAVE COME.
• How have the Indtrack Technologies graphs changed since the foundation? Can you share a few statistics? We are growing slow pace as we managing B2B mostly Software solutions of various verticals and volume as well B2C GPS tracking Devices installations on vehicles in pan India level with customized tracking solutions. So we growing in both segments. In the last 8 years, prior changes started in the industry as the government was started enforcing the policies in vehicle movements monitoring and various organization also started adopting vehicle tracking Solutions for their ﬂeets. So all these helped Indtrack to grow as well, as we having capabilities and we proved that as well. • What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success? Team serious dedication towards projects and clients And not a small degree deviation from the core domain. • What inﬂuenced you to start Indtrack Technologies? I was on job in Transport & Logistic company as System 20 June 2021
manager. Was developed Transport management experience for that company in the 90s. And all its branches were connected with HO through Dial-up internet. The Company owner was technocrats himself and was keen to adopt technology but their main business was transportation. So after spending good years with the company and successful product. There was only maintenance work left. And wanted to do something advanced and challenging so I left my job was back in my hometown and spent a year without anything then started GPS and GIS-based solutions. Being an entrepreneur can take risks for adopting new technology and challenging projects. And it’s pleased to share we successfully faced the challenges. As well INDTRACK is a good launchpad for sincere and fresher developers, proud to share many ex-employees switched to big IT companies in a good position, and it’s a pleasure being a mentor for them and seeing them grow. • What are the products/services the ﬁrm focuses on? How are your services diﬀerent from those in the market?

emergency. There is some product coming free for citizens and transport industry in a couple of months. • How do you decide to take the ﬁrm a step further in terms of your products/services? There Is not any such big deal, I am very clear for this have to fulﬁll clients requirements without failure, which we promised to them. If we able to do then only says yes to clients and then there is no escape plan for us before delivering. • Can you please brief us about your professional experience? I started a job as an oracle and developer in 2000 software developer in a small company where I got the opportunity to work on one of the university pre and post-examination software projects and another transport system management project. That transport logistic company inducted me in their company as they wanted to make it ERP for their all branches and anyhow it company in the process of shutting down. I got good management and platform to design and develop software for transport management systems. I developed a solution single-handed by grooming 2 local computer operators into software development. As management trusted on me and got freehand so was able to deliver the product. And connected their all transport branches, on dial-up internet, most of them were located in remote areas. We developed the system on a monochrome desktop with MB rams. It was a quiet learning phase. We developed many big projects of
various verticals ♦ Smart city bus transport management system ♦ State-owned public bus transport management system ♦ 108 Ambulance monitoring and management Solution, ♦ Solution for 1000s vehicles monitoring and management for state government. ♦ Police dept. Petrol vehicle monitoring solutions. ♦ State government food public distribution systems ♦ Apart from these, many in past and currently doing interesting and challenging projects. • What are the key achievements of your entrepreneurial journey? We worked on many B2B projects when they were stuck due to nondeliverable by clients due to their incompetencies of them, and we successfully rescued them. Without taking any credits we successfully run the projects most of them were crucial in terms of govt. authorities. There were some interesting projects for the authority we did. We providing complete solutions for big steel company raw material carrier vehicles from railway yards to the plant with automized controlling vehicle movements outside the designated area. Diﬀerent types of map engines for the solutions using diﬀerent technologies. We develop our gis data by web crawling and other tools, these data we use for our applications. We use many open-source robust and proven technologies to design our solutions depends on project requirements. All these eﬀorts and planning make solutions economical and we make solutions security checks and all testing by internal resources and third-party
agency. We almost covering solution oﬀerings to all major and critical GPS/GIS projects. • How do you look after your employees? What makes your team unique? We have given many novice software developers a chance to be part of our development team and due to project requirements, their hardworking and learning zest made them ﬁne developers after passing months, and all they doing good in respective MNC IT companies. As they get freedom and a free hand they able to explore many technologies and skillets. I am happy to see them grow professionally. I keep myself engage with the team in all development processes, as being a software professional and having debug skills I can’t keep myself out of the project scene. We celebrate small events together; we do not keep the junior-senior line in our fun time. I keep showing trust in the team members and assign them interesting use cases to develop, which makes them think and explore more. My team works dedicatedly and accomplishes their tasks. To take care of their personal and professional I am always there with them. We keep revolving around ourselves, technologies, and infra. After 15 years we coming out with some Free solutions on the cloud and changes in the environment and team. • Is there any special experience with your clients you would like to highlight? There Are many but one is a special one, which stills revolve in mind, project prototyping asked by one big international giant company for
its one of Indian based big company. That was something GIS, Multimedia, and some component of GPS all together with real-time monitoring, it’s some 10 years back. We demonstrated them ﬁrst prototyping and how it’s going to function. They were happy and wanted to see real-time but neither client nor the company wanted to invest for them and as we were not in the position to spend such a huge amount for prototyping, so we were not able to do that time. But I am still hopeful to develop such a product so it can be demonstrated to any such companies and it will be a challenging and interesting product. In another B2B company project, there was a project discussion and some big IT ﬁrm team were on the board with their senior team members. And the project was so big and critical, the company came out with some solution proposal and budgeting after spending lots of hours and days on discussions. And at the same time before their presentation we oﬀered the solution from us in the very economical pricing and almost we oﬀered what they were supposed to and they shocked to such solution with economical way. unfortunately, that project not started due to some genuine reason. Still hoping to have such a project in place. • One person who you admire the most? I have not seen other than Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Architect of many things of independent India and knowledge powerhouse. He has done for all those classes and genders who have not had the rights to do so, and all he did when things were against him with big power. www.theenterpriseworld.com 21

NEW MACHINE LEARNING ALGORITHMS IN 2021
22 June 2021
achine Learning is becoming the future of mankind. Machine Learning algorithms are changing the deﬁnition of manual tasks, allowing computers to perform menial jobs such as responding to emails, right down to performing exhaustive and diﬃcult surgeries, and much more. Machine Learning algorithms help computers to perform the assigned tasks in the most precise, and fastest way possible, along with the ability to learn, grasp and adapt accordingly. These algorithms not only make the computers intelligent and smart but also adaptive, so they can perform their tasks even if there are changes in the data, responses, etc. Machine Learning and its applications are picking up rapid pace as the possibilities are endless and the beneﬁt that it brings to a plethora of industries is astounding and unbelievable.
- Decision Tree This is one of the most popular machine learning algorithms, which is a supervised learning algorithm, built to classify problems. It works for categorical as well as continuous dependent variables. This algorithm involves dividing the population into two homogenous sets based on the most signiﬁcant independent variables or characteristics. - SVM Algorithm This is a classiﬁcation algorithm where one can plot raw data points in an n-dimension space. You can select the value of n depending upon the number of features one has of a particular point/data, making it extremely easy to classify and study the data. Further, classiﬁers can be used to split and present the data on a graph, making it easier to present and map the information in a precise and accurate way.
The commandments of tomorrow Let us look at the new Machine Learning Algorithms in 2021, that are gearing up to hit the markets and revolutionize the way we work, function, and perceive the world. - Linear Regression Imagine arranging identical wooden boxes in the increasing order of their weight, but the catch is you cannot weigh each box. This is where liner regression comes in, mapping the height, width, etc. (visual analysis), and arranging the data accordingly with the help of parameters. This is done by establishing a relationship between the independent and dependent variables, and ﬁtting them into a line (Y=a*X+b).
- KNN Algorithm This algorithm can solve classiﬁcation as well as regression problems, but the former being widely used in the Data Science industry to solve problems. It stores all available cases and classiﬁes new cases by the majority of its kneighbor. To simply understand, if you wish to know more about a person, you talk to his acquaintances, friends, neighbors, family, etc. - Dimensionality Reduction Algorithms Today's world is generating insane amounts of data each day by diﬀerent organizations both private and public. Data scientists know the importance of this data, but it is a tedious task to identify patterns,
trends, etc. Dimensionality reduction algorithms like Missing Value Ratio, Decision Tree, Factor Analysis, and Random Forest can help them ﬁnd those hidden patterns, trends, and much more. - Random Forest Algorithm The name comes from the Decision Tree algorithm as it is a collection of decision trees. Each tree is classiﬁed, and votes, which helps classify new data into its rightful place. The forest chooses the class of the new data concerning the maximum common features it shares with the existing decision trees, making classiﬁcation precise and easy. De-Coding the Future! These Machine Learning Algorithms are bringing a dynamic change in the working and functioning of enterprises, in turn leading to more advanced and productive products and services for the customers. Since new machine learning algorithms and their applications are being developed and discovered, it becomes an exciting wait to see whether it unfolds tremendously or goes down as the biggest hype of the century! These algorithms are just the beginning of a new world, where tech is much more than just a gadget or some tool to help us, but a means to achieve something that we could not earlier due to fewer resources and technology – The Future!

inField Solutions A leading technology company transforming lives!
cience and technology are a beautiful gift for humanity. As we were moving from the Stone Age, science-ﬁlled us in the set of features of the present era. It simpliﬁes our lives and inspires us to ponder the wonders of technology. Many modern technology inventions made our life easy and enjoyable and innovation is still in process across the globe. Technology has a very important contribution to our life. While the world is on the cusp of the economic revolution, the pandemic hit a lot and businesses struggled to survive. In all this scenario, there was technology that came forward as a messiah for businesses to run their daily operations remotely. In this context, today, if the business still relies on the traditional business processes it might be holding its growth back. To transmogrify the lives of people and businesses, a leading company, inField Solutions provides technology that enables safe smart cities. inField Solutions has developed an integrated technology 24 June 2021

We listen to our customers, competition, and the market in general and then evaluate our next course of action based on our ability to satisfy future requirements. Our ability to act includes our available resources time and skill set, ﬁnances, and market access (can we acquire clients who would need this capability or feature). • How do you think is the GPS tracking sector evolving?

We have had numerous clients who doubled their revenue within 12 months of using our inField Clipboard platform while realizing an ROI on their investment with inField Solutions within 5 months. These are examples of what motivates us to do what we do. • What are some of your largest inspirations? My parents, children, and wife have taught me how to dream and accept the risk to pursue these dreams. • One person who you admire the most?

SensiWise Solutions Bringing Visibility, Assurance & Efﬁciency To Specialized Supply-chains.
PUNEET JETLI FOUNDER & CEO 38 June 2021
o be competitive and enhance eﬀectiveness, keeping up with the particular latest technology is important. The Logistics industry is reaping helpful beneﬁts immensely from the almost all advanced technology and may continue to grow some sort of a lot more advances are usually made. The breakthroughs within technology will carry on and drive the boundaries for a long time to be able to come. SensiWise Solutions is an Emerging Tech (IoT, Analytics & Blockchain) focused venture creating Enterprise solutions for specialized supply chain logistics. In a candid talk with Mr Puneet Jetli, Founder and CEO at SensiWise solutions let’s get known to their journey since inception and their quality oﬀerings. • Tell us about the company. We are a 2 years old company. In our deﬁnition, a specialized supply chain includes any product that requires careful handling during its storage and/or movement through the supply-chain journey. Though our ﬁrst solution is targeted at Cold-chain, which deals with temperature-sensitive products, it has been designed in a way that we
would be able to address other specialized product categories with little incremental eﬀort. • What were the initial challenges you faced? Being an IoT focused company, our biggest challenge upfront was to create a ﬁne balance between the need to quickly hit the market and the need to have full ﬂexibility and control on all the building blocks of the solution. We were always clear that we would not try to compress the go-to-market cycle time by leveraging third-party IoT devices readily available in the market. While that would have allowed us faster access to the market with our solution, we knew that in the longer run, it would hinder our ability to enhance/customize our solution for new use-cases, and also lower the threshold for competitive diﬀerentiation. The other signiﬁcant challenge for a start-up is always winning your ﬁrst customer. • Which was that point that triggered the growth of the company? I think there have been about 3-4 growth inﬂection points till now. The ﬁrst was obviously when we released the solution for undertaking POCs/Pilots in Q3 of
2018. In a few months, we were able to start converting the initial POCs into commercial contracts. The second was when we ﬁnetuned the solution for slow-moving assets like Ice cream push-carts. The third was when we adapted the solution for ﬁxed assets involved in Cold-chain like the freezers, chillers, cold-stores, and visicoolers. Each of these, are large opportunity areas by themselves. • How have the company graphs changed since the foundation? Can you share a few statistics? I think the 2 most important metrics that calibrates our progress are the number of customers and the number of assets for which our solution has been deployed. On the former, we now have 5 paying Customers, and several others in the pilot phase. For the existing customers, we have the go-ahead to cover over 4,000 assets. • What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success? Frankly, we are still very young and have a long journey ahead before we can look back and admire our achievements. Yet, SensiWise is being built on a few fundamentals that we believe will hold us in good stead:
| Interview with The Enterprise World
a). Global & rich Industry experience of the core team b). A clear understanding of the technology landscape and engineering best practices for digital solutions c). Building and harnessing the right ecosystem for growth • According to you, which are the factors that aﬀect logistics industry processes? The logistics industry has traditionally lagged other processes/functions like manufacturing, ﬁnance, customer experience, etc. when it comes to Information Technology adoption. The complexity of high market fragmentation, several stakeholders, multiple product hops and handovers, further adds to the issue. All of this eventually manifests in the following challenges: 1). Lack of visibility into the product’s location and its condition 2). Inability to monitor whether deﬁned operating processes and SLAs are being adhered to 3). Cost, damage, theft, asset utilization, and turnaround related ineﬃciencies 4). Inability to establish end-to-end traceability of a product’s journey with accountability for lapses, if any • What are the products/services the company focuses on? How are your services diﬀerent from
40 June 2021
those in the market? Our mission is to bring Visibility, Assurance & Eﬃciency to specialized supply chain logistics operations. Our ﬁrst solution is for the Cold-chain – the supply chain for temperature-sensitive products before we start addressing other adjacent areas. While most stakeholders believe that Coldchain involves monitoring of temperature & location, we are disrupting this space through some of the following: a). Addressing the need for all stages of the product’s Coldchain journey – right from the time it is manufactured until it reaches the customer, and not just during transportation and warehousing. b). Providing stakeholders granular visibility & assurance of their operations by providing access to over 40 parameters c). Enabling end-to-end traceability of a product’s journey and its quality even when multiple service providers are involved in handling the product d). Going beyond monitoring – allowing stakeholders to close the loop by allowing them to remotely operate and control the assets deployed in the Coldchain. Ex – switching on/oﬀ the AC unit of a Reefer. e). Allowing stakeholders to monitor multiple product condition parameters and not just temperature.
• How do you decide to take the company a step further in terms of your products/services? Our product roadmap is typically inﬂuenced by the following two factors. Firstly, it is based on our understanding of the market needs that we are trying to address. The moment you start acquiring customers, there is always a steady ﬂow of features and functionalities that get added to your to-do list and needs to be prioritized. Secondly, how you want to diﬀerentiate vis-àvis the competition also plays a major rule in evolving your products & services. • Is there any new addition to the list of products/services? Anything exciting you would like to share? Given our Cold-chain focus, it was imperative for us to look at the needs of the Ice cream market. Our newest product is called iTREATS – Ice cream Trikes Revenue Enhancement & Tracking Solution. We realized that Ice Cream Trikes/Push-carts are an important sales channel in many parts of the country. So while Brands were investing heavily in making thousands of these push-carts available to their trade-channel, they had very little visibility into their utilization, operations and sales eﬃciency. While some brands had tried adopting a GPS based track and trace solution, some of the needs
W H AT
We are very happy that Govt. of Karnataka supported us in this endeavour by covering the iTREATS development under its ﬂagship ELEVATE Idea2PoC Grant program. • The new era demands new methods. How do you cope with that? Thankfully today SensiWise is amongst the disruptors rather than having fear of getting disrupted. But the real danger for any organization, especially the successful ones, is to get comfortable with the status quo or continuing to follow what has worked well for them in the past. • How much has the logistic industry evolved with rising technology over the years? Aspects of Logistics industry particularly warehousing has deﬁnitely beneﬁted a lot in the last few years through technology adoption. However, all aspects of the industry will need to plan the leverage that newer technologies
like IoT, Robotics, AI and Data Science will bring. • Can you please brief us about your professional experience? Over the last 20 years, I have been associated with 3 start-ups. In 1999, I was amongst the ﬁrst to join Mindtree. In the 12 years that I spent with them, I played various roles. This experience gave me tremendous insights into building & nurturing a company through its formative and high-growth period. In 2011, I co-founded Happiest Minds and ran its Digital business for 6 years as a CEO before moving out and starting SensiWise in 2017. The common thread across these three ventures has been helping Global Enterprises leverage newer technologies for business Value. • What are the key achievements of your entrepreneurial journey? Building organizations or institutions is never one person’s work. But to be part of teams, and seeing companies like Mindtree and Happiest Minds evolve from being an idea to becoming successful global Brands, has been the most fulﬁlling and cherished moments of my career. • Is there any special experience with your clients you would like to highlight? The whole purpose of our products is to act as eyes and ears and help
customers get detailed visibility and assurance on their assets and their operations. In a few instances, Customers were taken by surprise when our solution highlighted that fuel was being pilfered from their vehicles or when the distance travelled by some vehicles was being over-reported by 40%. The value of this kind helps establish credibility and conﬁdence with Customers. • One person, who you admire the most? Having had the opportunity to see and work with several Industry leaders from close quarters, I realized that every good leader has his/her strengths that you can try and emulate. At the same time, no leader can be the best at everything. So, I have followed a hybrid approach of admiring multiple leaders for speciﬁc areas, and have been able to learn from each one of them. • It’s a rat-race out there. How do you cope with that? I have seen that as you mature and get more experienced, you are able to balance the pulls and pressures of the rat-race much better. For me, the 2 non-negotiable pre-requisites are whether I am enjoying what I am doing and if the business is being done with the highest levels of integrity. Compromising on either of these is not worth the while.
R E A L I T Y.
and on-the-ground issues were totally diﬀerent. This is why we created iTREATS. Based on some POCs that we have undertaken, we are conﬁdent that Ice Cream Brands will now be able to not only have improved and real-time visibility into the asset’s operations but will also be able to increase the sales realization per capita from the assets deployed in the market.
