New Delhi | 19th June 2020: ATechnos, a fast-growing digital transformation company, unveiled its marketing-tech vertical, ALMOND. Leveraging technology and data-driven insights, ALMOND offers customised ways for brands and organizations to engage with the last-mile audience in internet-agnostic ways.

Our last-mile engagement solutions are made for scalability; easy and simple tech-platforms built on four pillars – measurable mediums, digital communities, hyper-local content and e-gratifications. Our solutions have traversed metros, villages and the dark mile of India, addressing every stage of sales and marketing funnel.
As the economy recovers, businesses will be challenged to find new ways to engage and influence customers, consumers and communities. Brands and organizations will need to boost the reach, engagement and purchase intent. The founding team at ALMOND expects industry-wide partnerships to resolve these challenges. We shall also be creating SaaS products for international markets.”
