Following its success as first runner up of Sri Lanka’s premier business funding platform Venture Engine 2014, OMAK Technologies (Pvt) Ltd. is poised for growth. The tech startup provides bespoke software covering all aspects of running and managing a restaurant. OMAK’s continuously monitored, function rich Software As A Service (SAAS) solution VDine, provides incredible efficiencies to the hospitality sector and is already making its way beyond Lankan shores. As a scalable solution that can be operated on the go, the product covers the widest range of options currently available in the Sri Lankan market. It also provides the fastest return on investment in its field.  The solution covers restaurant floor management, kitchen efficiency and productivity, ordering, customer satisfaction and CRM operations, human resource management, inventory and supply management, remote access and even monitors your social media presence. Speaking on the main benefits of the solution, Managing Director Ehantha Sirisena explained: “Our solution is essentially a rented software that is constantly monitored, upgraded and maintained.  Its cost-effective monthly payments do not burden a restaurant’s Cap-ex budget, making it an attractive option even for smaller scale operations. VDine is cloud hosted and tailored to work perfectly on devices such as iPads and iPods.”  By participating in Venture Engine, OMAK received exposure to several potential Angel Investors, both from Sri Lanka and India. Through the program OMAK was successful in gaining the funding and contacts necessary to expand into international markets. Well-known entrepreneur, Vice President of Google Inc., Managing Director of Google India and Indian Angel Network investor Rajan Anandan, is also set to invest in OMAK while assisting with regional growth.  As Co-Founder of Blue Ocean Ventures, Anandan is also responsible for initiating the Venture Engine competition. OMAK’s impressive portfolio of clients already covers popular local establishments such as Ministry of Crab, Keama Sutra, Silk, Sopranos, Ministry of Crab, the Colombo Fort Café, Siam House and Steam Boat. The company is well on its way to revolutionise how restaurants are run in Sri Lanka. The solutions have been so well received that OMAK is set to expand its operations within the South Asian region.
