“Multiply the turnover 5x in next three year”
Since inception 3 years back, we have achieved building a stable, consistently growing start-up company crossing a revenue of 10 Cr. Now is the phase to accelerate growth. We plan to achieve this by means of well-planned organic growth and by inorganic growth as well.
“Simulate future with Innovation and be one step ahead of customer's expectations.”
Working “Smart Way” is the culture we wish to cultivate within the organisation and encourage applying innovation in anything & everything we do. In today’s scenario where complexity of the chip and the product being developed has scaled up in non-linear fashion, the cycle time however has not changed, but rather it has shortened. Therefore, there is strong need of creating innovative solution, and develop intuitive tools to meet challenges.
"Our Goal is to work relentlessly for success of our customer."
