In their journey to become a SaaS leader, Capillary Technologies believes the vast capabilities of AWS have pushed them to explore deeper and come up with innovative products. Some of the key benefits that they have been able to power through AWS in the last few years are:
- Simplifies expansion to global markets: AWS’s global presence has allowed Capillary to offer our solutions in 30 countries in a short span of 10 years.
- Scaling while controlling costs: During peak shopping seasons or campaign periods, the traffic can be up to 50 times higher than usual fo retailers. Capillary has leveraged AWS solutions to stay resilient to this demand and be scale-ready for some of the largest retailers. The company has formed an AI/ML innovation lab dedicated to adding more AI capabilities to its products to enhance ROIs for their customers. Capillary has maintained an availability rate of up to 99.97 percent despite a soaring customer base.
- Boosting Innovation: Capillary has also used Amazon Rekognition to drive an effective customer engagement solution powered by smart IoT sensors deployed in the stores. The technology captures information about visitors such as how much time they spend in a store or if they are a returning customer with products – VisitorMetrix and VisitorSense. Capillary is also experimenting with Amazon SageMaker to simplify the development and deployment of ML algorithms across its product portfolio. Leveraging the power of AWS has also reduced the time to market for new products.
- AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
