“We are very proud to form a joint venture with a world-renowned tech giant like SoftBank. This will significantly enhance our visibility to the marketplace and our ability to continue offering innovative solutions to our growing customer base,” said Anand Mahurkar, Founder and Chairman of Findability Sciences. “SoftBank’s selection of Findability Sciences, first as an ecosystem partner and subsequently as a joint venture partner, speaks volumes about our people, processes and technology, Findability Platform®“ added Mr. Mahurkar.

Our mission is to improve the decision-making capabilities of our customers. We have conducted extensive research and worked closely with various partner companies to provide our customers with optimal solutions to support their increasingly complex needs. The Findability Sciences’ platform, which emphasizes automatic analysis, self-learning, is very innovative. Additionally, the Findability Platform® offers functionality that until now has commanded a premium and has required significant capital expenditure. Together we are bringing to the market, out of the box solutions that are still versatile enough to meet the needs of a range of industries."

The joint venture will serve Japanese customers in various verticals including Human Resources, Insurance, Banking & Financial Services (BFSI), Retail, and Manufacturing.
