Vijay Yalamanchili — Keka founder and CEO, commenting on Keka Series A round, said: “Business today means serving both customers and employees.

“While there have been plenty of tools to cover the customer experience, employee experience has taken a back seat.

“Businesses can no longer afford to do that.

“We want to help organisations focus better on their core asset – the employees.”
