Cogneau Systems

The minds behind the VERDIS Mind

The cognition your business needs for Value Creation, Innovation and Building Scale

Who are we?

Cogneau Systems is an Indian Decision Sciences startup, conceptualised in the early days of 2015 by founder Sunil Mehta. Having worked with tier-1 businesses, solving complex problems using best-in-class technology solutions, Sunil realised the degree of complexity residing in large enterprises. To simplify and solve these complexities, a never-tiring cognitive presence is needed. This gave birth to the VERDIS Mind, a patent-pending brainchild of Cogneau Systems, the ‘Intelligent Virtual Data Scientist’.

Why do we do what we do?

Why do we do what we do?

Every decision comes at a price. Price, that is calculated not just in terms of the money spent but also the human effort invested and resources spent. Today, when we are making a concerted effort to be conscientious towards the planet and people through our actions, we, at Cogneau, believe that the work begins at the decision level itself.

The Cogneau Code

To create value in the world, whether for clients, partners, or society, we stay true to our business and culture code. We are driven by a core belief in R&D-driven value generation, customer-centric Design Thinking, and a startup’s agility and responsiveness to deliver every solution with the highest value. To this end, we are guided by the chief business tenets of Learning & Innovation, Excellence, and Value Centricity.





The Journey ahead

The Journey ahead

Today, thanks to a series of successes in the last couple of years, and backed by a team of supply chain experts and a team of strategists, techno-geeks, creative masterminds, and customer service professionals, we have been growing strong partnerships and rapidly developing our wide portfolio of the VERDIS Mind solutions.

The VERDIS Mind is learning from the day-to-day complexities and growing the branches of its Intelligence everyday. The VERDIS knowledge models spread across verticals and we are extremely bullish about the VERDIS Mind being at the very center of the Decision Sciences wing within organisations, at each of the operational, tactical and strategic levels.

Inside the Cogneau Code of Culture

Excellence comes with Motivation. And we provide loads of it!

As much as we love building a Virtual Mind, we believe that our people and the company culture are of utmost importance to us. Our focus is on employee growth and learning since we believe in building a relationship with our employees first before we go out building a relationship with our customers. We practice what we preach! The focus on learning extends to all, even the leadership team members who have their own specific and evolving learning trajectories.

Though we move at a fast pace, and it might seem that we don’t have time to sit and do things together, every employee at Cogneau loves sharing, helping and encouraging others. We love our water-cooler conversations, tea-time discussions, and out-of-office parties as these help us to build sustainable relationships and understanding. VERDIS is the ultimate innovation of the mind and hands. The mind ideates, the hand crafts!

At Cogneau, we are a family and this family is growing.
