ZS and Quartic will collaborate to help drive resilience, increase adoption of Industry 4.0 and improve predictive decision-making across manufacturing
The global professional services firm ZS is making a multimillion-dollar investment in and partnering with Quartic.ai, an enterprise-scale AI platform that advances autonomous manufacturing. This partnership aims to improve how manufacturers in life sciences and healthcare use technology, data and artificial intelligence (AI) to speed up the launch of products and meet sustainability goals. ZS and Quartic will collaborate to help drive resilience, increase adoption of Industry 4.0 and improve predictive decision-making across manufacturing.
“Industry 4.0 requires interconnection of manufacturing systems and AI-enabled predictive and prescriptive real-time decision-making tools. Our vision is to bring integrated AI solutions to our clients that will accelerate their journey to Industry 4.0,” said Pratap Khedkar, CEO of ZS. “The investment in Quartic is a strategic and important step in that direction.”
ZS and Quartic will partner to develop an end-to-end supply chain and manufacturing analytics cloud to help manufacturers in life sciences and healthcare connect data across the entire ecosystem, enhancing how they use AI to improve real-time decision-making. ZS and Quartic will also offer a manufacturing digital design studio—a single place where ZS clients can access the manufacturing information, insights and data they need to improve operations and better serve their customers.
“We are pleased to continue to grow our manufacturing AI and Industry 4.0 capabilities,” said Anshul Agarwal, head of global supply chain and manufacturing at ZS. “In partnership with Quartic, we will develop AI solutions that will transform manufacturing analytics, allowing clients to get their products to market faster and in a cost-efficient, reliable and environmentally sustainable way.”
Quartic’s platform enables subject matter experts without extensive data science or programming backgrounds to build AI applications. The platform connects manufacturing systems and brings data into a contextualized form, making it easy to use for clients with varying skill sets and experience.
“Pairing Quartic’s manufacturing data and automation capabilities with ZS’s expertise in manufacturing strategy, planning and advanced analytics will allow us to offer manufacturers in life sciences and healthcare a set of innovative business applications,” said Rajiv Anand, founder of Quartic. “Our team is thrilled about this partnership and acceleration toward smarter decision-making in manufacturing.”
