TouchForce was born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is our vision to empower companies through technology and solutions which will ultimately enhance productivity. The best way to do this is to bring in technologies from the rest of the world into the GCC region – and there has been a demand to bring in technologies that creates a lot of value-add for the enterprises located in the region, especially in the UAE”
We have a plethora of solutions that includes AI, drone technology and performance monitoring solutions. We believe that it is not going to be a case of work from home, but instead work from anywhere. However, I do think we need to be very cautious in terms of how we empower staff, clients and vendor partners to make this journey a seamless one, and that’s where TouchForce comes in and brings real tangible value to enterprises in the GCC region
Revenue leakage and productivity are major challenges for enterprises in this current business environment. For example, we are working very closely with some major banks, and if they are scaling from 25 million customers to 100 million customers in the next 2-3 years then one key priority for them is that every employee in their organization is top of their game in terms of performance, but how do you identify that. You need visibility on the entire landscape, and we have the technology to do that
