Actyv.ai is an easy to adapt Enterprise SaaS low-code no-code platform. It is used by large enterprises to transform their supply chains and to empower their supply chain partners. Enterprises can scout for partners via the platform and appoint/onboard them digitally. During the onboarding process, Actyv.ai checks for errors and frauds in the partner’s documents and then analyses the data extracted to create the partner’s Financial Health Report and Actyv Score. Based on these, the partner gets access to closed-loop bank credit – BNPL for B2B – which it can use as working capital.
Actyv.ai counts Raghunath Subramanian (Raghu) as co-founder and CEO. Prior to joining Actyv, Raghu was Chairman India for NYSE listed UiPath.
