To infinity, and beyond
Omobio recently announced the acquisition of eimSKY Business Solutions. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the company, eimSKY is a product of ICTA’s Spiralation Program for the year 2010/2011. Founded by Technology Entrepreneur, Viranga Kekulawalato, eimSKY’s primary focus is on RFID, IOT and NFC solutions in Sri Lanka and the Asia Pacific Region. They were also one of the top 10 IT companies chosen by the ICTA to represent Sri Lanka at the Gartner Symposium IT Expo in 2014 and 2015 that took place at Gold Coast in Australia. eimSKY too has had their fiar share of recognition both nationally and internationally such as the e-Swabhimani award for superior products and innovations and have also bagged some International clients.
What does this Acquisition imply?
eimSKY’s product portfolio includes products such as Smart Office, a complete solution to make any business a smart business by bringing automation, self-management and digitization and other RFID, IoT and NFC solutions for various clients to implement system automation and to increase productivity. These products also help to reduce costs, enhance time savings and elevate operational standards of their business processes. The partnership between these two companies would further help utilize Omobio’s innovation in design and market reach with the engineering expertise of eimSKY that includes artificial intelligence and Internet-of-Things (IoT) with Real Time Virtualization.
Speaking about the acquisition Eranga Weeraratne, CEO of Omobio explained how the company’s vision is to become the leading telecom digital service solution provider in the region. Since eimSKY is already doing IoT with their Smart Locker and Smart Document and Asset Tracking products, any advancements in these technologies would complement Omobio’s lineup of products and solutions. Further, in these times of high competition among businesses, any company that offers automation, smart and lean business processes along with self-services will decides the winners and losers.
