What we do and Why we do it?
Welcome to our Small Business Division Page
Our small business division has been established to serve businesses with 1-50 employees. Thanks to cloud revolution in IT, business apps have become ubiquitous, there is no one right answer and a plethora of options. Large enterprises are not the only companies which can afford to implement the applications like email, CRM, ERP etc.
We started this division to serve a specific need which our clients have. Our contact with clients starts mostly with a request for a website, mobile app or a store site. As we engage more and learn about our client and their process, we observed that some critical pieces are missing from their infrastructure and with a little bit of help their productivity can be boosted many folds over. Some of these include a backup strategy for their digital assets, a simple CRM to track and follow up on leads or just automating information collection from client thus avoiding many hours of back and forth email.
As you read further you will see various business apps that can be implemented. Please keep in mind that you do not have to implement them all. We start a with a simple interview to understand your business process and your pain points and recommend a tailor-made plan that can be executed incrementally, we want to ensure that you are get value out of system which is implemented.
We are not re-sellers for a particular company who is pushing their solutions on you. Think of us like your own person CTO or advisory board who you can help you with the best practices which were solely available to large enterprises. We leverage our experiences with large enterprises and the previous work we did with many small business to ensure that you get best value. We are vendor agnostic and will help you pick and implement best solutions that suit your business. We work all major products and cloud providers. We are not here to break your bank, we will recommend solutions only if we believe they generate value for you.
