Hunting elephants, not rabbits to drive next level of growth for IT services SMEs at Compulink House

March 21, 2013 from 7pm to 8pm
Indian IT services space has a long tail of entrepreneurs. The interest in the space and the relative ease of starting up has resulted in a thriving base of IT services SMEs. There are thousands of such companies in the IT services space with less than 300 people. The reason they were successful in starting up was they used a customer acquisition model which was based on a single direct and strong relationship (could be a relative or a past customer) and then generating leads through the Web…See More

Profile Information

Are you an Entrepreneur?
Yes - I have my own Startup
About Me:
An IITB alumnus and 20 years into software, I run Acism Software Private Limited. We are doing some cool things here:

(1) We got interested and studied the area of business communication (which happens mostly with email and that creates challenges such as email overload and hampered business continuity when a key person leaves), and saw that centralizing the communications is the key to solving them. We created a small product -Kommbox- to enable businesses do that.

Kommbox is free for startups (<5 people). For larger companies who want it, we offer a consultation with a guarantee of results.

(2) Distributed software development is about breaking up a software into smaller modules to be developed individually. It's about making software the way cars are assembled.

We recently demonstrated successfully that using this model even junior programmers/ freshers can contribute to software development meaningfully, and key resources can scale up to 500%.

Apart from these, we develop software for others. We have been doing this for quite a few years and have happy clients in 3 continents.
Are you looking for co-founders to start with?
YES. I can do with someone who can handle technology. On the other hand, I can use some help in business development as well.
What would you like from POCC?
Meeting professional friends, hungry entrepreneurs, insane visionaries and crazy go-getters.
Focus Areas / Interests
technology, IT/ITES, advertising, recruiting, networking

Rahul's Talk @ POCC Kothrud

We heard Rahul from BigBooks at POCC Kothrud meet last Saturday. His is an inspiring story that many entrepreneurs would want to know and emulate. Here is a very down-to-earth entrepreneur who is completely determined to do whatever it takes to succeed, and it was interesting to see how he has addressed the unique requirements of his niche in a unique way.

BigBooks is a library that gives internet-based booking of the books, doorstep delivery and pick-up -- all this for Rs 150 a…

Can HeadTracker sell during recession?

Let's see what are the odds:


(1) Difficult time for recruiters - many complaining about reduced or no business, some closed shop

(2) The brand is new to the industry


(1) A product which really addresses recruiters' needs - even during tough times (Our confidence has increased after comparing it with other products in the market)

(2) SaaS offering - zero installation, zero maintenance, very little payments as you… Continue

HeadTracker 3

HeadTracker 3 is our SaaS version. SaaS brings in quite a few benefits to the clients as well as for us. It brings down the entry cost for our clients, whereas for us it gives us better supportability, better upgradability and most importantly ensuring that our clients use the software.

We redesigned our site in the first week of January. The new design looks better, at the same time it brings out the benefits of HeadTracker for the recruiters to the… Continue
