Initiative aims to groom local talent and grow the Kingdom’s retail and manufacturing sector

Capillary Technologies, a leading SaaS based product company which helps brands stay ahead of the digital evolution, has signed a strategic joint venture agreement with Saudi-based Veda Holding to form Capillary Arabia.

It demonstrates our commitment to the local market and gives us the opportunity to onboard local talent to provide support to our customers in their preferred method,” said Aneesh Reddy, CEO and Co-founder Capillary Technologies. “The retail sector is on the cusp of transforming into a technology-fueled, consumer-driven industry. Capillary Arabia would be fulfilling the gap in the retail tech in the Kingdom. Our proven success record in the region and customer-centric solutions combined with Veda’s robust retail network and superior market knowledge will provide Capillary Arabia with an unparalleled advantage to develop and digitize the retail ecosystem. By providing superior AI-powered technology we are set to help brands tap the immense opportunities by redefining their consumer experience across platforms, improve brand loyalty, and always be consumer-ready.”
