Fractal, (fractal.ai), a global provider of artificial intelligence and advanced analytics solutions to Fortune 500 companies, announced the acquisition of Samya.ai, one of the fastest-growing Revenue Growth Management (RGM) companies, for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition strengthens Fractal’s RGM offerings and expands its reach across industries to help its clients make better decisions to drive sustainable growth.
Companies face significant operational blind spots and value leakage in the form of lost sales, reduced margins, low ROI on promotional spend, missed growth opportunities, and excess inventories. It is estimated that CPG companies alone lose revenue growth opportunities of up to 9 per cent and carry an excess inventory of 10 per cent-15 per cent due to these operational complexities and inefficiencies.
Pranay Agrawal, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fractal, said, “We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead of us with Samya. Supporting our mission to power every human decision in the enterprise, this acquisition will expand our footprint and enable us to create greater value to our clients across industries.”
“Samya’s RGM offering leverages deep learning, reinforcement learning, and other advanced probabilistic methods to deliver a 10X advantage over traditional approaches. We are excited about joining Fractal. Our combined expertise will enable us to help Fortune 500 clients drive sustainable revenue growth,” said the founders, Shailendra Singh (CEO), Deepinder Dhingra (Chief Product Officer), and Pavan Palety (Chief Customer Officer).
Fractal has been powering decisions in 100+ Fortune 500 companies with AI, engineering, and design. Fractal’s Ideas2Business program currently includes over eight software solution platforms and four AI companies. Samya.ai will be the fifth company under this program.
