This tool sets up a level platform which can be leveraged to compare and rank brands, corporates, and industries, from the digital customer’s perspective.

Bearing in mind that digital experience is the key to strategic growth, Stax looks forward to recognizing digital excellence of Corporates in Sri Lanka, with a vision of inspiring Sri Lankan businesses to leverage cutting-edge technology and forge successful digital strategies to transform customer experiences.
