“iON will enhance India’s global competitiveness by giving 35 million Indian SMBs access to simple-to-use and scalable technology tools. SMBs can use the product to build their business advantage and compete on the global stage,” Ramaswamy said.

To provide SMBs with seamless service, iON has created an eco-system of 90 cloud service partners across the country. Its industry solutions are available for manufacturing, textiles education, retail, quick service restaurants, wellness and professional services.
