The arrival of quick commerce, micro-mobility and no-contact services has reshaped the way businesses manage operational challenges. Business leaders relied heavily on location technologies to adapt to the pace of change that the world is witnessing since 2020.
There’s one major caveat: Informed decision-making in the face of operational disruptions needs enterprise-focused location solutions. And the existing traditional mapping providers don’t offer that.
The strategic intent of NextBillion.ai and Dista’s partnership is to fill this critical gap, and transform mobility and field operations by offering better location technology solutions.
Strengthening delivery and field operations with enterprise-grade map tech
NextBillion.ai’s enterprise-grade geospatial platform will power Dista’s location intelligence framework and core product components. The aim is to design an efficient system for businesses to streamline and automate their complex workflows.
From computing accurate ETAs to pinning exact entry/exit gates, from getting detailed apartment maps to incorporating customer-specific routing preferences, the map data + AI company’s spatial infrastructure can enable unique business-specific use cases. Dista’s customers will use NextBillion.ai’s mapping solutions for optimizing operations and scaling their businesses.
Shishir Gokhale, CEO and Co-Founder, Dista, said, “We are pleased to partner with NextBillion.ai and look forward to delivering cutting-edge solutions and making a significant impact on our customers. By combining our forces and expertise we can accelerate business deals and expand the reach of our location intelligence product suite.”
Applications for mobility and field operations
Dista, the low/no-code AI-enabled location intelligence platform builds customized products and solutions for businesses with mobility and field operations at their core.
NextBillion.ai will leverage Dista’s enterprise application development capabilities for its customers across industries like mobility, banking, delivery, ride-hailing and logistics. The mapping platform’s customers will get access to Dista’s array of AI/ML-powered products like field service management, delivery management, sales productivity, and more.
“This collaboration is an excellent fit with our goal to help global operations leaders manage mobility and field activities accurately and effectively. Our expertise in the enterprise map tech space complements Dista’s location intelligence products and solutions. We are excited about building pioneering solutions for our joint customers,” said Ajay Bulusu, co-founder of NextBillion.ai
This partnership will enable Dista and NextBillion.ai to expand into new geographies and enhance strategic positioning in the global market.
Both the organizations are driven by a common goal — help global businesses leverage map data and location intelligence to improve their business operations. With real-time operational visibility and AI-driven insights, the platforms’ joint customers will be able to design smart, integrated and seamless workflows.
