The company currently has its presence in India, US and UAE, serving a global clientele.

The anomaly that existed in the IT space which Anvi Tech wanted to eradicate was that companies had problem areas which needed innovative and experiential approach. But most solution providers had standardized services which were not always constructive or pertinent. “Our motto at Anvi Tech is ‘We Are Listening’, and we hold true to that. In our opinion, solutions available in the market aren’t always suitable because of a lack of proper communication and understanding the requirements and deliverables between the clients and the providers. We want to change it, and deliver problem-oriented solutions, which may well be exclusive,” Shiva explains.

Initially, resource generation was a big challenge for Anvi Tech, as is the case with most start-up organizations. Also, being headquartered offshore had its own set of logistical and security problems. But, over time the company dealt with all the roadblocks and soared ahead. Presently, Anvi Tech is focusing on ERP support projects, and a sizeable percentage of the clients are doing repeat-business with them. With an emphasis on Oil & Gas and Utility sectors, the company prides itself on being a people-centric organization with a process-driven approach and following a globally-integrated delivery model. Among SAP services, the company provides consulting, implementation, upgrading, rollout and application management. Apart from these SAP services, theyalso provide testing services, end-user technology and enterprise mobility services.
Amidst stiff competition, Anvi Tech has held its own. The USP of the company which make it stand out are its highly specialized and motivated workforce, the customer focus intended at complete satisfaction and on-time delivery.

Among the most notable clients that Anvi Tech has worked with are Abdul Latif Jamil, TASNEE Petro, Saudi Electricity Corporation, Luberef FedEx.
The cash flow has been steady and Anvi Tech has been making gradual inroads in other industries. “Because we are in lot of repeat business, at this moment in time the margins are low. But, we intended to develop our industry verticals by expanding beyond Oil & Gas and Utility. We plan to penetrate the Data Migration & Analytics space over the next few years.
Also, we are planning to open another office in Rwanda by next year, and we look to generate a good amount of employment,” Shiva concludes.
