“We might not be the cheapest service provider (although we are very competitive) but we provide benefits much larger than what we charge”, quotes Neville about the value proposition they ensure to the clients. Whilst their peers portray ‘Low Cost’ services to the clients, on the other hand, they offer a cost versus benefit proposition to their wide customer base. Moreover, an experienced team of annotators specializing in multiple verticals renders end-to-end customer-centric solutions by offering ease of scalability and unlimited flexibility from their end. Customization and Professional communication help the team to identify the pulse of the customers and be in tune with them.
Insights on making a positive impact on the lives
Neville exemplifies that as AI has invaded and transformed our lives in the most sophisticated manner, a myriad of data has been accumulated and processed in the last decades. This crucial data needs to be re-processed and tagged with a 100% accuracy label as there is absolutely no scope even for the minutest of errors in this domain. Such processed data is commonly used by data scientists and specialists to train the AI models and machines.
“While manual annotation tools remain the most commonly used, we are geared to expand our skills in the automatic variants. Video/image annotation remains our primary focus as it plays a critical role in the market – more now than ever”, states Neville, about how automation will help them be more relevant in the respective sphere.

At Qualitas Global, the individual efforts of the employees are well- recognized and rewarded by the management.
