Alok Jajodia: An Industry Stalwart with an Eye for Perfection

CIO Vendor IT consultancy and chartered accountancy aren’t two industries that many people will see in the same bracket. This is exactly what Alok Jajodia, a chartered accountant by qualification tries to correct. With his immense understanding regarding the importance of ERP and business processes, Alok realised that rather than getting into a normal audit, accountancy or taxation profile it is a better option to get into IT Consulting. Starting his career as one of the big four chartered accountant firms in systems implementation, Alok gained rich experience in IT solutions sales and implementation, process consulting, and SOP documentation. He also has diversified industry experience by working with clients from various verticals like Hospitality, Financial Services, Insurance, BPO, ITES, Manufacturing and Trading, Healthcare, Textile and Apparels, Media, and Power to name a few. Soon enough, he zeroed in on the inception of MONDIAL IT Consultants along with couple of his friends, a firm that was incorporated with the aim of diversifying IT Consulting to the CFOs of the organisation and the company brands themselves as ‘bridging the gap between the CFO and the CIO’.

Committed to Offering the Best
Standing apart from the rest has always been a priority for Alok and in order to achieve this status, he has taken every possible measure to be a one-off IT consultancy service provider. “In MONDIAL, I concentrate on all the consulting business which includes software evaluation, project implementation management, business process transformation and improvements including lean implementations, implementation reviews, SOP documentations, change management, enterprise risk assessments, controls and automations, and integration of solutions to name a few. One of my KRA in MONDIAL is existing client relationship management. I also concentrate on the operations taking care of all the solution implementations and the operational strategies of the organisation”, shares Alok. As a unique strategy, Alok is specifically offering consultancy services with major concentration on RPA, ML and AI for controls and automations including identifying probable risks, mitigating them and compliance controls, which eventually helps the clients to save on the cost and also increase customer satisfaction.
Along with generic consulting, at MONDIAL, Alok started to implement the CFO Solutions. This helped the company to understand a lot more about IT which later helped them to stand apart from the rest of the competition. Being the COO of the organization, Alok’s main aim always has been to groom the resources to become consultants, rather than just being product experts. At MONDIAL, the strategy has always been to work closely with the clients and match customer expectations. Alok also understands that in order to achieve sustained success in todays dynamic business environment, investment in technology, regular change management workshops and timely reporting using analytics is crucial.

Passionate about Improving Consistently
More than just a business, consulting has always been a passion for Alok and this has helped him to strive for consistent improvement. “I can’ttend to ignore, if I see a lot of duplication in processes, lacking controls, or the companies doing a lot of manual activities, which all can be solved with the help of technology. I believe a lot in giving back to the society. I am associated with the CA Institute (through Western Indian Regional Council (WIRC) and various study circles) and with the Chamber of Tax Consultants (CTC). I do participate in various seminars organised by these bodies to disseminate the knowledge. I am a strong believer of the saying the more you share, the more you gain”, says Alok.

Acknowledging the fact that the ‘one size fits all’ approach will not work in the consulting industry, Alok and his team have always prioritized on offering tailor-made solutions to their clients

Acknowledging the fact that the ‘one size fits all’ approach will not work in the consulting industry, Alok and his team have prioritized on offering tailor-made solutions to their clients. While many other product companies who intend to concentrate on the CFO solutions but rarely have a CA or a Financial expert in the team of product management or implementation, MONDIAL IT Consultants remains authentic to its core about offering expert consultancy services. In this complex market environment, Alok urges companies to take the experts on board, who can proactively suggest the best practices of the processes and help in the roadmap of the products, which would help them reach greater heights faster. Different from his competitors in the industry, Alok concentrate majorly on the CFO of the organisation, and being a CA himself. His functional knowledge related to the systems, business processes, controls and automation understanding, and reporting requirement understanding are proficient. This combined with his impeccable eye for perfection and vast experience in the industry makes Alok Jajodia one of the most versatile business consultants in the IT consultancy industry.
