Fountech is pleased to announce it has partnered with London-based management consulting firm Bloktide. Through this partnership, both companies will be able to offer a host of new products and software that fully integrate their existing AI and emerging technology toolsets.
Based in the heart of London’s Tech City area, Bloktide is a consultancy firm that advises organisations on digital transformation consultancy, helping to implement transformative technologies (including, but not limited to Blockchain/DLT and IoT capabilities) and realise strategic, tactical and operational aims. Leveraging a vast network, they have built a formidable team of professionals and visionaries in the area of emerging technologies, which they combine with a solid commercial grounding and innovative approach.
The partnership comes at a pivotal moment for Fountech. Our mission for 2019 has been to show organisations how they can benefit from the technologies that are collectively responsible for the fourth industrial revolution. Fountech is committed to ensuring organisations can reap the full benefits of these new technologies, specifically AI.
By working with Bloktide, Fountech will now be able to include specialist DLT and IoT solutions into its portfolio, giving clients access to even greater opportunities for competitive advantage. What’s more, the partnership means that Bloktide will be able to broaden its existing capabilities – the company can also provide advice and guidance around innovative AI technologies.
Fountech’s CEO and Founder, Nikolas Kairinos, commented on the partnership, acknowledging that it will not only benefit clients, but also provide the opportunity for Fountech and Bloktide to experiment and explore new ways of implementing innovative technologies and practices.
“Businesses are aware of the advantages emerging technologies can offer them, but there is a great deal of confusion when it comes to understanding how to effectively integrate AI toolsets with blockchain, distributed ledger and IoT capabilities. It is common to assume that AI exists in a vacuum when there are significant advantages on offer by integrating it with other technologies.
“By sharing our knowledge and expertise, we will explore the full potential of this new tech. Most importantly, it also ensures our clients do not need to consult with multiple developers. We will handle everything, right from the initial enquiry through to the final delivery of the technology we have created, which will be tailored to the needs of each client.”
Bloktide’s Managing Partner, Babar Shabir, also welcomed the advantages the partnership would bring to businesses seeking digital transformation consultancy services.
“Blockchain and IoT can be difficult technologies to understand, and part of our mission at Bloktide is to create greater industry awareness of their practical benefits. What’s more, with new advances being made in the space, there is huge potential for collaboration. That’s why it seemed only natural for us to partner with an industry-leader in the AI space. I look forward to drawing from Fountech’s expertise and seeing how we can use this to support the needs of our growing client base.”
