An increasing number of clients are looking to automate their processes and are willing to invest in an ERP as they understand the benefits they can derive from it. The feedback from our clients and the positive sentiments in the industry has encouraged us to device a growth strategy both in terms of increased presence in the market and for ground breaking research for the industry" said Arul Selvam.
