Cisco in digital transformation deal with Akshaya Patra Foundation

Cisco and Akshaya PatraCisco announced its agreement with Akshaya Patra Foundation for digital transformation of its kitchens across 7 locations in India.

Akshaya Patra Foundation serves food to over 1.66 million children from 13,958 schools across 12 states in India.

Digital transformation of Akshaya Patra kitchens and key offices will help them realize significant gains in productivity, scalability, and cost-efficiency.

Cisco will deploy an enterprise-grade network and collaboration suite connecting their kitchens and their offices by enabling end to end IT & process digitization.

The Akshaya Patra network will connect their offices in Bangalore, Gurgaon, and field kitchens across 7 locations (2 kitchens in Bangalore, one each in Lucknow, Vrindavan, Bellary, Guwahati, and Jigani) on a single network which will enable them to efficiently track their kitchen production, distribution, supply chain and logistics.

The investment in digitization will enabled Akshaya Patra to ensure faster and better connectivity in their field offices to enhance operational performance.

Cisco said Akshaya Patra can now analyze, and operationalize data in near real-time to improve the overall speed, security and responsiveness of the program.

This digitization effort is expected to increase Akshaya Patra’s operational efficiency by about 5 percent in the initial phase, which will help them extend the mid-day meal program to over 28,500 students everyday immediately.

“Using the power of the network to digitally enable nonprofit organizations such as Akshaya Patra is an example of how technology can help solve the world’s most challenging problems,” said VC Gopalratnam, SVP-IT and CIO-International, Cisco.
