CEO Message

 

Greetings and Welcome to FIRtech.  I am Ugan Maistry, the CEO of FIRtech.

Today we find ourselves, as countries, governments, companies and individuals operating in a “new normal”.  What we once took for granted, a handshake, an embrace and a welcoming smile – we now treasure and look forward to experiencing again.

This is the time for us to pull together, support each other, make the right choices and re-evaluate what’s important in our personal and professional lives.

When we started FIRtech, our intention was to create a business that would help us, as a country, leapfrog into the fourth industrial revolution.  As such, our purpose is to help our customers and society leverage the opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution.  Equally, our aim is to help them navigate the challenges of this industrial revolution.

No-one could have foreseen the devastation brought about by COVID in 2020.  The number of lives lost, the number of businesses closing down and the long-lasting socio-economic impact – especially in our country.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all that have been infected and affected by this pandemic.

In 2014, Klaus Schwab said “In the new world, its not the big fish which eats the small fish, it’s the fast fish that eats the slow fish”.  Undoubtedly, this vision was based on the role of technology in business evolution.  Today though, his words could not be more true.  The tectonic shift created by the pandemic has forced businesses to consider a digital transformation programme or to consider adopting digital business models, instead of the traditional brick and mortar models.

This is exactly what we do here at FIRtech.  Staying true to our purpose, we help Customers transform their businesses through the use of measured and appropriate technologies.  Whether Customers are trying to create internal efficiencies and undisrupted supply chains or they are trying to pivot their businesses to new digital business models, we have the skills, experience and technology to help you realise your strategic goals.

Our specialist skills are in 5 key areas:

  1. Cloud computing for the modern business – be it ERPs, business analytics or creating business insights
  2. Robotic Process Automation and Chatbots – automating your back office and your front office, ensuring efficiency, productivity and 24/7/365 operations
  3. Streaming Analytics – in this business we manage your Customers perceptions, expectations, loyalty, retention, and churn prevention
  4. Internet of Things and 5G – here we are building edge computing solutions that leverage off 5G networks. IoT and 5G is going to revolutionise the way you engage with your Customers
  5. And finally, 4IR Skills Development – this part of the business addresses some of the challenges created by the fourth industrial revolution. This business unit focussed on upskilling and reskilling your employees – so that you can repurpose them within your organisations

At FIRtech, we are a group of like-minded individuals, who are driven by innovation and solving tomorrow’s challenges.  I’m sure we are all boastful of having the best people, but I’m boastful about having the best people that are humble, hardworking and driven by excellence – with the utmost accountability and integrity, and I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the team.

We look forward to helping you with your digital transformation.

Until then, stay safe, stay healthy and take care of each other.
