Challenges have always been a part of all journeys and when it comes to a business it play a vital role on an obvious note. One of the major challenges for the duo was to convince clients to work with them during the initial period. “The biggest struggle for us during the initial days was to create a brand, as clients were well versed with our capabilities but they were unsure of opting for us since we were a startup then,” expounds Sunil. Though it was a hard task but their optimistic view and endurance brought successes and almost 90 percent of the clients they are serving today are MNCs. The company’s clientele includes names from the manufacturing sector, IT sector and SEZ manufacturing sector.

Client satisfaction has always been the core area of concern for the duo and they want to keep their quality high in order to gain a bigger market share.
