iMerit provides quality data services to serve the data needs of organizations investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI). iMerit offers annotation and enrichment solutions that power algorithms in Machine Learning (ML), Computer Vision (CV), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and e-Commerce, while creating positive social change through employment in the digital economy. Our customers are able to focus on the algorithms that drive their company forward, while our teams of trained specialists handle the data work. With an output accuracy above 98%, iMerit is recognized as the leader in delivering quality, cost-effective projects on time and on budget. iMerit is focused on the impact sourcing, and this begins right from the initial stage of operation, i.e., the selection of candidates. Around 80% of over 3,600 full-time staff (average age < 25), come from an impact background with family income under $200/month, often from an agrarian or religious minority, or tribal communities. For more than a decade, iMerit and its sister organization, Anudip have been working to establish an innovative solution to the economic challenges in India by offering employment in the IT sector for populations that are economically and socially disadvantaged and were not previously exposed to the technology industry. Gender inclusiveness is also a cornerstone of employment in the organization. Over 50% of the total employees are women, particularly from the peri-urban and the rural poor in India. iMerit is also an active part of the Global Impact Sourcing Coalition (GISC), which aims to further ethical sourcing in supply chains, and has shared its model and learnings on varied platforms initiated by GISC.
