About Spot On Solutions

Order is fundamental to the process of measurement: representing objects by numbers presuppose we can arrange them in order - Peter J. Cameron

Spot on Solutions (Private) Limited (abbreviated as Spot-on) is a company incorporated under the Government of Sri Lanka Department of Registration of Companies Act no 17. Spot-on work initiated in April 2005 out of my home in Mount Lavinia. A lab was setup on December of 2005 in the Amsler building at No 25 Rotunda Gardens, Colombo 03 with 3 software engineers and myself doing the work. The lab was later shifted to 42 Deseram road, Mount Lavinia in March of 2006 and continued to function there for 14 months until May 2007. Now Spot On functions on the basis of a virtual organization working out of Kunming, China.

Spot-on aims to provide affordable technology solutions for progressive enterprises. Today's world requires organizations to be at the top of their game. Planning is one of the most vital aspects in keeping cost and wasted resources down.

The first work of Spot-on was developing an innovative optimization tool for the purpose services planning; hence the acronym SPOT - Service Plan Optimization Tool, which was absorbed in to the company's name. Moreover, planning solutions must be precisely on-the-dot, i.e. Spot-on: an age old Sinhales (Sri Lankan language) phrase insinuating the same - "thi-tha-ta we-de".

Spot-on has now diversified in to the arena of Information Communication Technology (ICT) with an aim of designing affordable ICT solutions, pilot testing the solutions, and conducting operations research analysis on the pilot system in collaboration with national and international partners for the purpose of public sector ICT policy research.
