SODA (Sona Digital Analytics) is a term coined by our CEO, Mr. Thyagu Valliappa. It is a term coined after careful consideration of the evolution of digital processes — the practicing of process engineering, process automation, robotic process automation for software-based repetitive tasks, semi-automation with mechanization using sensors, and many more — in the 100+ years of legacy business with four generations of entrepreneurs from the Sona Family.
The SODA team believes that any process can be reengineered based on the outcomes we expect; any process can be automated based on the repetitive tasks & complex tasks that we come across as a routine. When this process is automated with software in the backend, it becomes robotic process automation. These scenarios are quite evident in industries where all the stages can be visualized and relative & relevant processes can be automated without disturbing the workflow. However, this will be achieved by a sure & steady improvement of productivity and a reduction in the non-value added areas and operation costs. The end results are savings in time, money & effort, and thereby a direct increase in profitability. We call it the ARM (Automation, Robotics & Mechanization) Process of SODA.
The SODA team has many projects to its credit wherein the clients have saved immensely due to process reengineering & automation methodologies. One such accomplishment was the construction project executed for Bosch Rexroth. This project was executed in 120 days flat — a record time in the history of the construction industry. This was possible due to our expertise in process reengineering, ARM, data analytics, digital transformation using lean methods, 5S, process audits, and many other innovative techniques and technologies.
SODA is empowered by an astute team ably guided & directed by our CEO to take up any problems that any establishment or industry might have. We happily use the tagline, “Your problem, our challenge”. By understanding the pain points of our clients, we diligently break up the stages of operations and then fabricate an apt solution which is built on the concept of EODB (Ease of Doing Business). The digital landscape not only solves the problem that the client has. but also contributes to the reduction in pen & paperwork, which is the larger objective of SODA.
With India heading for global leadership in digital transformation, SODA surely plays a very small but pivotal role in this direction to enable solutions that are competitive. They can be easily used by anyone irrespective of their technical prowess, in real-time, with 24/7 access anywhere. These solutions are ideally suited for businesses ranging from MSMEs to large corporations to reap the benefits. All our solutions are outcome-based with customized goals to achieve.
The SODA team has built a culture of asking for more when it comes to projects and has become habituated to taking on challenges upfront. The team brims with confidence & assimilates the best talent in the industry. It also breeds young minds from academia that come up with disruptive ideas to solve the most complex problems of today and tomorrow.
