Pune, India, September 8, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Like many other products, this product story too has its roots in the dissatisfaction from the existing products in Market.
While Abhishek Pande & Ankur Gakkhar working in the Domain of Cloud & IT Orchestration, they experienced the pain of customers when it comes to the adoption of new tools/products. Customers were actually seeking simple solutions which can solve their problem utilizing existing skills and workforce with a lesser investment of time, money and specialized team.
They wanted to get this sorted while working as Architects/Consultants in premier organizations of the related domain. But Life had other things in store for them.
“We teamed ourselves and started working on an idea of a flexible & scalable platform which is simple to use and comes at low-cost for the customer. A product that doesn’t need specialized workforce for its implementation & use. The motive was to solve the problems that we have been experiencing while working with the customers.”…says Abhishek.
