On the other side of the partnership, Emertel stands as a gateway for innovative scale-ups from the United States, Israel, India, and the European Union aiming to penetrate the Indo-Pacific market. Their expertise in GTM acceleration is crucial for Jidoka’s successful introduction to the manufacturing sectors of Australia and New Zealand.

As manufacturers in these countries continuously strive for excellence, the demand for advanced quality inspection solutions has surged. Jidoka and Emertel’s joint efforts will cater to this demand by offering solutions that promise over 99% accuracy for cognitive quality inspection. Moreover, the technology reduces the defect detection rate and minimises false positives, thereby bolstering the overall efficiency of the quality inspection process.

Jidoka Technologies, founded in 2018 by technology leaders Sekar Udayamurthy, Dr. Krishna Iyengar, and Vinodh Venkatesan, has emerged as a notable entity in automated cognitive inspection. The company is also recognised as one of the three winners in Cohort 7 of the Maruti Suzuki MAIL (Mobility and Automobile Innovation Lab) Program for startups. Beyond India, Jidoka has made strides in Europe and inaugurated its operations in the United States, with an ‘Experience Center’ in Dallas.
