AAJ Technologies, a global digital consulting, services and solutions leader, announced that it has changed its name from “AAJ Technologies” to “OZ”. With the name change also comes a new focus for the company, and the addition of three new executive leaders to the organization.
“We are thrilled to announce our new direction and fresh new company name.” said Amjad Shamim, CEO of OZ. “In the last 10 years Customer Experience (CX) has rocketed in importance, with 90% of companies competing primarily on this basis. This, coupled with the fact that companies that are CX leaders are growing six-times faster than CX underperformers, has driven ever increasing demand for this core capability from our clients.”
Amjad continues, “CX is powered by disruptive digital technologies such as RPA, AI and AR. OZ consulting services and solutions pull these together by utilizing Design Thinking, to drive the innovation required to deliver superior CX for our clients. I’m also excited to announce three additions to our leadership team who have proven track records in driving CX and digital innovation. This talent will help guide our clients’ success in this new direction”.
