He added, “We are now able to bring together rich solutions powered by our growing portfolio of IP and uniquely combining these with deep vertical specific domain expertise together with decades of Geospatial, Engineering and Enterprise IT experience. This long and arduous journey for transformation of close to a decade required significant investments while Rolta’s growing product portfolio was enriched and started gaining global acceptance. Going forward, I am confident Rolta will greatly benefit from nonlinear growth because of our IP led Solutions.”
