Editor’s Note

There’s no magic formula for great company culture. The key is just to treat your staff how you would like to be treated In the world of ever-changing possibilities, an organization invests not only onto cutting-edge approaches, state-of-the-art technology or top of the line marketing solutions to stay competitive in the market, but also prefer to nurture a talented workforce who shows the potential of growing and sustainability in the company. We all know that manpower is the cornerstone of every organization.

Abans has formulated a non-hierarchial and down to earth approach which creates a transparent relation between all the individuals in the conglomerate.

Furthermore, the company keeps a keen eye on employees’ recreation by celebrating birthdays, festivals, etc. From my point of view, an MNC who treats their employees as their family is one place you don’t want to miss working.

Cover Story

E

ntrepreneurship is a platform where an owner or manager of a business enterprise nurtures and grows a business that provides returns to all its direct and indirect stakeholders. The platform is not limited to any particular type of business, and aspiring individuals from all walks of life have a chance to script their own unique success story. Entrepreneurship, however, is an intensely competitive field, and companies need to stay updated with the latest trends and technologies to achieve fruitful growth in their respective domains.

change provides constant opportunities. Hence we take decisions nimbly by empowering people. This company adjusts strategies on a continuous basis. It has the ability to renew and adapt, to quickly course correct by rectifying errors. This company has developed teams with multi-disciplinary leadership that can handle cross-functional work. This company is quick to spot new opportunities and implement them. Our business agility is indeed a winning virtue in times of constant change. WHAT ARE THE HINDRANCES THAT YOUR COMPANY HAS ENDURED AND HOW HAS IT AIDED IN GROWTH AND PROSPERITY? The critical ingredient in the making of an entrepreneur is having a thorough knowledge of the industry that he or she is in. As the promoter and Chairman of a diversified & global business conglomerate, it is physically impossible for me to be a “master of all trades”. However, I have overcome this hindrance by putting together a team of highly talented individuals as heads of our diverse functions and businesses.

However, there are a few conglomerates that venture not only into one but multiple entrepreneurial domains. One such global enterprise is the Abans Group. The Group has over the years evolved manifold from a commodity trading background into a global conglomerate. Business Connect Magazine recently had an interview with the Founder Chairman & Managing Director of this enterprise, Mr. Abhishek Bansal. The following were the valuable takeaways gained from a freewheeling conversation with Mr. Bansal:

In the Abans Group, any suitable business that we enter into is one where I have end-to-end knowledge of the same, or where a suitable expert has been found who can lead and grow the opportunity. The concerned business/function head should also have astute leadership qualities, business acumen, on-the-job expertise, and be aligned with the DNA of the Group.

PLEASE BRIEF US ABOUT THE COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR CONGLOMERATE IN THE BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM. I founded the Abans Group in 2005 at the age of 18. The Group is a globally diversified organization that has ventured into Investment Management, Trading, Broking, Gold Value Chain, Non-Banking Financial Services, Agri Commodity Trading, Pharmaceuticals, Software Development, and Real Estate.

This process is pivotal in providing rapid growth for the Abans Group. HOW DO YOU PRESENT YOURSELF AS A BUSINESS MODEL IN THE MARKET? By nature, I am always open to feedback and suggestions, I believe in the maxim “Either you convince me or I convince you”. I also lay a lot of primacy on knowledge; hence we ensure that all our endeavors are backed by expertise and ethics as our core drivers. We are also incredibly nimble and agile, having the capability to spot new business opportunities quickly and then enter into and master the same.

The multinational corporation crafted its first venture, Abans Commodities in 2005. At that time, the commodities market in India offered significant trading opportunities. I was able to successfully utilize these opportunities to the extent that I was generating over 50% of the total trading volumes of the Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX). In recognition of my efforts, MCX actually passed a resolution lowering its minimum age of membership from 21 years to 18 years to accommodate me.

When evaluating a new line of business, in addition to a robust analysis of the financial factors (top line, bottom line, growth, among others), we consider other parameters as well such as whether the opportunity being evaluated is a strategic fit with the existing businesses of the Abans Group and whether it is in a field where technology enablement plays a vital role.

The Abans Group has many such success stories where it has identified high potential business spaces and profitably ventured into the same. The Abans Group today straddles multiple industry segments. I would classify myself as a serial entrepreneur with a strong focus on technology.

WHAT KIND OF CLIENTS DO YOU SERVE? HOW DO YOU ENSURE THE UNBREAKABLE FAITH OF CLIENTS IN THE COMPANY? The Abans Group has a customer roster that consists of leading enterprises in their respective domains.

HOW IS ABANS A DIFFERENTIATED PROBLEM SOLVER? At Abans, we believe that adapting to change is an opportunity, not a threat. We believe that constant

has incorporated many technological enhancements, an illustration of which is their cutting edge software, ‘Zicuro’, which is an end-to-end seamless trading solution that allows low latency (high speed) transactions across all asset classes and all global exchanges.

We are transparent and ethical in our dealings and in that sense, deal only with partners who resonate with our core values. The Group recruits skilled professionals and leaders with substantial and contextual work experience who in turn bring their respective best practices to the table. Processes are set up by amalgamating them with the culture of Abans. In the case of specialized businesses like Gold Bullion Refining where the industry is concentrated and expertise is difficult to get, external process consultancy firms are brought in to audit all processes and suggest improvements. As the Founder Chairman, I personally drive a culture of quality work delivered at speed.

These tech-innovations have allowed Abans to study and monitor the global commodity markets to identify any trading opportunity and quickly leverage the same. This, in particular, is one of the revolutionary changes that have become almost omnipresent in the financial markets of the new era. Traditional manual trading methods have now been replaced by algorithms that can cope with the diminishing value as well as the duration of opportunities.

Furthermore, the Abans Group also participates in-process quality audit opportunities such as the Golden Peacock Awards which enables us to get our processes reviewed by our industry peers. WHAT SORT OF TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION HAS THE COMPANY INCORPORATED IN ITS OPERATIONS Customers today are extremely tech-savvy and always keep demanding more from the companies that they patronize. Hence, companies need to upgrade themselves with the latest trends that can keep them ahead in the market.

WHAT SORT OF WORK CULTURE IS MAINTAINED IN THE ABANS GROUP? WHAT VALUES AND ETHOS DO YOU PROPAGATE IN YOUR COMPANY TO KEEP YOUR EMPLOYEES SATISFIED? WHAT APPROACHES DO YOU TAKE TOWARDS THE RECREATION OF EMPLOYEES? As the Founder Chairman, I take upon myself the role of embodying the work culture and ethos of the Abans Group. I maintain a non-hierarchical and down to earth approach. Impromptu meetings are often held on the floor of the office, and business issues are often resolved through deliberations in informal surroundings or over lunch or dinner.

The world is becoming a volatile place filled with uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) and technology is one of the enablers to manage the same. Abans

Furthermore, Abans focuses on accelerating the development of employees and to do so we expose them to the latest technological innovations, diverse business situations and empower them to act quickly as per their intelligent reading and understanding of the situation. Aside from work, there are multiple planned outof-office events for employees such as Diwali Party, Christmas Party, etc. throughout the year. Community festivals such as Laxmi Puja are held at our office premises where all employees and their families are cordially invited. Individual business leaders also take the cue and take their respective teams out for team bonding and relaxation. WHAT ARE THE ACHIEVEMENTS AND ACCOLADES THAT YOU HAVE WON OVER THE YEARS? With more than a decade of doing business in the industry, Abans Group has won numerous accolades. Some of our notable achievements are: • Commodity Trading: One of the few Indian companies to be listed on the prestigious London

somnia cure, antioxidant properties), mouth dissolving Ondansetron strips (anti-emetic for infants), delicious orange flavoured vitamin D granules (unique formulation to counter antagonistic action of flavour on vitamin efficiency), iron in chelate form (to prevent gastric irritation when ingested).

Global financial markets are gradually becoming more liquid and showing greater depth and interconnectivity. Going forward, the financial markets in India will also become more transparent as regulators continue their excellent work. There will also be many more opportunities for retail and corporate investors to invest in the Indian markets.

WHAT ARE THE COMPANY’S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE? HOW DOES IT VISUALIZE THE MARKET IN THE COMING YEARS? WHAT DOES IT WISH TO EVOLVE INTO IN THE COMING YEARS? With time, business needs to keep pace with technological innovations as it may eventually prove to be the “make or break” for any organization.

Within the next five years, Abans Group is looking forward to becoming a fully-fledged financial hub with technology at its core. Furthermore, the Group wants to consolidate and enhance its existing presence in international markets namely China, Middle East, South East Asia, Latin America & the UK and enter new geographies like South Africa, Malaysia, etc.

THEY STARTED ALVEO AND ARE CONSTANTLY EVOLVING Alveo came into being when the founding members decided to leave their MNC due to its merger. “We couldn’t see the future of our team, and hence, we decided to get on with our venture,” says Shishir. The company consists of technology experts that believe in resolving complex business problems with eccentric digital solutions. The need to grow is vital; therefore, they quickly adopt new technologies in order to provide a better experience to their clientele.

The firm provides online support and development. They constantly communicate with their clients on a daily basis to ensure a design that is close to the customer’s demand and expectations. Alveo deals with overseas clients. They have a cordial relationship with each one of them. “One of the clients, who is based in the USA, constantly shares the industry’s knowledge and best practices of his company. We learn and adapt, which has helped us to grow quickly and efficiently. In three years, they have grown from a team of 4 to 30 people. Shishir understands the importance of creative and hardworking members in the organization, without whom the company wouldn’t have achieved desired success. WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER Alveo is one of the few companies that recognize the need to relax for a focused mind. “Most of our work involves innovation and research on new technology, so it’s important that people are able to take shorts breaks,” says Shishir. The company has adopted the gesture of sharing a laugh since the time of its inception. It is necessary that an employee doesn’t feel restricted in the workspace.

2. The office timing is flexible. Work and life balance have always given paramount status in the company, something that shouldn’t be compromised. 3. Late evening calls are neither promoted nor entertained. 4. Every month, they have office lunch parties or a half-day out. 5. Once a year, they go to a picnic spot for a whole day as it brings freshness for the members. “Especially in the rainy season, a lush green environment of Pune is quite relaxing,” says Avasthi. 6. Team mate’s birthdays are celebrated in the office; this ignites the sense of warmth in the company. 7. Book sessions are regularly held, where the team deciphers a bestselling novel through various sessions. Reading is promoted through this exercise, which is necessary to keep the creative flow smooth for the company. 8. They have Rock Start Award for anyone excelling in his work and anyone can give this award to anyone else. 9. To encourage the new idea generation there is one initiative called IdeaMonkey where anyone can suggest any idea. Ideas are taken seriously, and the best ideas are rewarded every month. All of these activities are taken seriously; hence, an in-house entertainment committee is appointed that manages offbeat domain and festival celebration. The firm keeps the hierarchy culture at its minimum. The doors are always open, which manages to keep the space employee-friendly. The company believes in communication as a problem-solving strategy. Hence, regular meetings for brainstorming along with yearly 360-degree feedbacks are extensively encouraged.

na. This is driven by the team members who not only choose the topics after brainstorming but also ensure that it becomes a learning experience. CHALLENGES IN THE PATH “Struggle is a part of the process, “ says Avasthi. It is significant to choose the right teammate, which generally becomes a challenge for most corporates. Alveo has faced quite a similar situation where the recruitment process became tiresome and fruitless. Therefore, they have relied upon their employee’s referrals in order to hire the best talent. NEW OUTLOOK Alveo has been a steady company since its inception; it has only witnessed growth and success. “A lot of discussions are happening around the slowdown and recession in the industry, but we see steady growth and a strong project pipeline for us,” says Shishir. The future of the industry will heavily rely upon AI, Machine learning, Robotic process automation and IoT (Internet of things), for which the company is enthusiastically prepared. Other than growing in the market place, the company also wants to focus on its internal functioning. Shishir talks about the significance of slow and steady development rather than a shoot up as it will promote the new teammates to adjust to the company’s culture and workflow. While a chat with Business Connect Magazine, Shishir says- “Forming a company could be as easy task but sustaining and growing consistently without compromising with your value system has been extremely difficult for the market. Strongly inspired by the book ‘Delivering Happiness’ of Tony Hsieh, I wish to spread happiness among entire stakeholders Community. It also doesn’t matter whether they are our clients, employees or vendors. Because it is a small contribution to make the world a happier place.”

Alveo has a dedicated Q-A department that tests the working of each development until it is declared error-free. The core team consists of technology experts, who have enriched knowledge in the industry’s standard practices of quality check.

THE BEST

COMPANY TO WORK FOR 2019-20

The services they provide include Data Collection/ Survey Programming, Data Visualization / Custom Dashboarding, Mobile Development, Cloud Base Development, Automation, and AI & ML. After completing sixteen successful years in jobs on different profiles with different companies, Mr. Rupinder Singh Bedi, Founder and CTO of BI InfoTech, decided to pursue his passion of creating a company that focused on innovation and custom development for clients. BI Infotech prides itself on constant and cutting-edge innovation. Some of the real-world corporate issues that the company helps solve for its clients are: 1. Quick Start Development: Helps to reduce the time invested in long processes of client’s documentation, approvals, meetings, etc and swift start development based on client requirements with rapid turnaround, managing all other parts at their end with highly trained resources. 2. Latest Technology: As a technology partner, clients get ensured the use of state-of-the-art technology. This works to reduce investment on upgrading technology at the client’s side. 1.

Rupinder Singh Bedi (Founder / CTO)

etc. Additionally, they work with international research giants like Toluna, Impact Research, Ethnos, etc. WORKINGS OF THE COMPANY There are three typical models on which BI InfoTech works: 1. Break-fix: BI Infotech responds to problems, support requests, or distinct projects, and charges for the work done. BI bills hourly, and sells a bank of hours at a discounted rate, or quotes a flat rate for the project. BI also works on the typical break-fix model and adds a monthly “retainer”type fee which helps keep a proactive engagement. 2. Managed Service: This is their more common business model, as technology provider it allows them support on automation, remote response, and regular monitoring. BI charges a flat monthly fee, in exchange for which it is responsible for managing and supporting the client’s IT infrastructure & development. The monthly fee is usually based on • The number and complexity of components (servers, network itself, security requirements, Android Development, Cloud Development, etc), and • The scope of services/support included (Market Research Services, Could & Mobile Development which can be onsite support, after-hours support, etc) 3. SaaS Model: Hybrid in their case is the approach that combines a Software As A Service (SaaS) solution with a cloud-based software application. 20


BI InfoTech works on Hybrid software distribution approach for their product line like Connect Survey, Panel Management, Field - Project & Quality Management Services. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT PLANS To prepare for what’s next in the industry, BI InfoTech has plans to delve into Artificial Intelligence technology, which shows incredible promise for the future: 1. Analyze text from across channels: Most of us can’t keep up with our emails, let alone manually review hundreds of thousands of openended survey responses, social media comments and contact-center call logs. AI allows you to dive into those millions of words and emerge with an understanding of what your customers think, feel and want with powerful text analysis. With natural language processing and sentiment analysis running automatically across tens of thousands of pen text comments, you can see trends clearly and understand prevailing sentiment, all in real-time. It takes an incredible ability to gather data and helps you actually process it and take action. 2. DY Dash: DY Dash is the one-stop tool to organise the data in a tabular format with easy-to-do customisation quite quickly. It enables you to slice and filter the most complex tables that best fits your needs in a cost-effective manner. 3. AI - RQC (Resource Quality Control): It specifically identifies the duplicate respondents who have taken the survey earlier from the same machine. AI based Digital finger printing detects and flags the machine whenever user takes the survey and if repeated flags it out. It has the unique ability to identify multiple cpanel accounts from different research firms on the same computer. Suspect respondents are flagged in the system and, based on business rules, are either allowed, redirected or completely filtered out of surveys in which they attempt to participate.

BI Infotech is working on Mobile-based applications, which work or capture data both ways, active and passive.

How A Growing India Based Software Studio Is Helping Indian, North American And European Businesses Thrive On Digital Platforms Software and mobile app development are two of the trending verticals that show cumulative growth rates and opportunities in the field of IT. Every day emerging technologies are giving birth to new software for designing and developing websites and mobile applications.

tal platform users. Many entrepreneurs over the globe use their methodologies of design, development, Operations, and testing of modern web and mobile applications to build their digital products. The company is an expert in providing attractive UI/UX designing with industry-leading technology to create quality products that are cost-effective for present and scalable for tomorrow’s needs.

However, even in such a world of technological advancements companies due to misdirection and lack of technical knowledge often face challenges in digital product development. Henceforth, it is highly recommended that entrepreneurs are given proper guidance and knowledge of the changing market trends and show them the path to success. This market need gave birth to “Cliffex Software Solutions” – an innovative software studio that focuses on designing and developing mobile applications and websites for entrepreneurs in both national and international markets.

A Glance On The Curators Of The Establishment Mr. Sidharth Sankh has completed his education from the Sikkim Manipal University of Health, Medical and Technological Sciences. The talented creative magnet is an experienced digital product designer with a demonstrated history of working with world-class products in the information technology and services industry.

On the other hand its Co-Founder Mr. Ashutosh Singh Rawat holds a degree in Radical Innovation Program and Innovation Management from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and further incorporates invaluable experience in many important echelons of an organization like innovation management, digital transformation, marketing and communications, mobile and web development.

The Company And Its Inception Story Cliffex Software Solutions is a modern software studio that provides end to end web and mobile software development services to entrepreneurs and enterprise companies throughout the world. The company got its footing in the platform in 2015 with the help of two brilliant individuals Sidharth Sankh (Founder) and Ashutosh Singh Rawat (Co-founder) in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

Contributing To Growth Towards The Startup Ecosystem The industry is filled with innovative curators and if giv26

and Skootr – India’s No.1 Chain of Managed Offices & Co-Working Spaces based in Gurugram. Incorporating A Focused Work Culture And Enthusiasm Towards Recreation Cliffex has a strength of more than 40 experienced team members that helps them deliver international quality software products. The company banks on 2 important attributes to cater to employment. The first is –

Their experience showed them that many entrepreneurs have great ideas and capabilities to build innovative businesses fail due to a lack of technical knowledge and new product development knowhow. Other factors also include falling into the traps of inexperienced freelancers or development firms that deliver low-quality services without thinking strategically about the product viability or user experience.

Attitude: Cliffex started attracting problem-solvers since an initial stage. Candidates are employed after screening their self-interest and accountability towards work and are given a free environment where they can nurture their talent for problem-solving.

Based on this knowledge The company has incorporated it’s experience in product strategy, digital design, quality development, and robust testing into a accessable service for entreprenures. The company has also ventured upon a very talented team that they have nurtured to the limit where they can bring great ideas to life in a well-architected and scalable manner.

Hard Work: ‘Hard work is the key to success’ - John Carmack. Cliffex has taken this quote a bit too seriously and therefore, they engage their employees into endeavoring tasks which eventually gives the team their chance to show their talent. The company orients endeavor as the path to growth and hence, always expect their employees to hold a high standard of work.

Endeavors That Show Their Strength And Endurance For any company finding the right manpower is one of the biggest challenges. The same has been faced by Cliffex. The company constantly works in the areas of design and technology that are ahead of the market curve. Hence, it has welcomed a talented team with good knowledge of software engineering fundamentals to whom The company gives good training and exposure through internal proof of concepts, rigorous testing, and R&D initiatives.

Ahead in the road, The company provides every opportunity to be a professional who excels in his/her work profile. Further, they have a work from home policy and Flexi-timing so that team members can maintain the balance between work life and personal life. Not just this, employees enjoy lunch parties and team building events every quarter. The young and energetic team often enjoys Table tennis sessions, coffee from Café Coffee Day and an unlimited supply of snacks, and breakfast items like cereals, bread, butter, jam, etc.

Two of the few cases based on this theory is Google Flutter and Serverless Technology. Google Flutter is an ‘open-source UI’ software development kit created by Google and it was bound to bring evolution in the domain. Hence, it was very necessary and endeavoring to find the right candidate for the job. The same was found in the case of serverless technology as they had a hard time finding individuals with any live development experience in serverless technology.

Growth And Prospective Initiatives For Future Cliffex highly favors incubating emerging technologies. For the year 2019-20, they are focused on working in projects in the field of Web motion graphics, Machine learning, IoT, Native-Hybrid app development, and GraphQL. Also, Cliffex is looking forward to launching projects in a variety of verticals like hospitality, healthcare, and local discovery and further tends to progress with projects in the field of augmented reality, gaming, and machine learning.

But The company didn’t give up rather through their training fundamentals and hardworking workforce Cliffex has deployed apps using Flutter, node.js & MongoDB available live on the app stores and Serverless technology from which entreprenures are reaping cost and scalability benefits. For references, this is the same technology used by the likes of innovative behemouths like Netflix and Uber. Clientele Base In A Variety Of Domains The company has worked with many national and international magnets but currently, they are involved with Kroo Sports – US-based sports fan engagement platform engaging thousands of users with its Android and iOS apps, Indiefolio – Mumbai based company with a web platform for finding and hiring India’s best creative talent 27

NIA AGROCOMMODITY MARKETPLACE PRIVATE LIMITED IMPROVING AND EMBELLISHING THE LIVES OF FARMERS WITH TRANPARENCY

SERVICES TO SOLVE HUGE PROBLEMS In the current market, farmers have few choices to sell their products at physical markets that do not render the fare price of the goods. Despite investing money in transportation and the process of doing agriculture as well as the commission of the agents, farmers feel unsatisfied with the offered price by the buyers.

I

n India, the plight of the farmer across many states is not as good as it should be. They have been facing a number of obstacles in the course of doing farming from starting to end process which is obviously pathetic and unexpected in such an agricultural country. By seeing and observing all the barriers of the courageous farmers, a company was set up with a name “NIA Agrocommodity Marketplace Private Limited” by a visionary entrepreneur Ajai Kumar Agrawal with vision to empower farmers. NIA was incorporated in Oct 2013. Before establishing NIA, the company had been serving to farmers of the country for more than 10 years with the same promoters and the vision with a different name (Agroecommerce Network Private Limited). The core purpose of the company was to provide facilities to farmers such as knowledge (quality, productivity, cost and many more) and services (banking, warehousing and insurance). It was a farmer-centric model, spread in 35 districts in five northern states with 800 centers. Despite rendering such helpful services to the farmers, the core issue could not be resolved that was the marketing of the products and its price. Therefore, the company (NIAAGRO) was established with the motto “Demand-Driven Ag-economy” to provide equal chances to farmers to get the fair market price, not minimum support price (MSP) throughout the year. Fortunately, with the idea of the company, it became possible to convince the farmers to have a hold during harvesting to get the maximum profit at the time of selling the products. Eventually, it should be more organized through an aggregator or an FPO for which a momentum is building up, even the finance minister targeted to have new 4000 FPO registration in few coming years.

www.businessconnectindia.in | Vol. 2 | Special Edition | January 2020| INDIA

THE COMPANY HAS COME AHEAD WITH SOME RESULT-ORIENTED SERVICES AS :• Having “Commodity Specific” B2B marketplace, “NIA Agrocommodity Marketplace” renders all the sellers along with FPOs with the fair market price. It makes the farmers decision-makers whether they are going to sell their goods or wait for the right time. B2B not only creates more alternatives for both farmers and buyers to opt but also fills the gap of quality and logistics management to reduce the pain respectively. B2B platforms are successfully optimizing supply chain management and minimizing risks and losses. • Quality management measures are being taken care of by initiatives of “National Agriculture Market” before putting goods for selling in the market, all the specifications of commodities are measured along with established infrastructure for assessing grade at all Mandis (markets) so that goods can be certified. • The gaps of proper storage are also being fulfilled by FPOs with the help of putting a world-class vertical grain storage system. NIA has all the plans to support such storage systems at village level. Besides doing all these tremendous things, the company is focused on logistics management and trade finance with the help of technology. Even, the whole ecosystem is run and supported through technology to get huge economic advantages to all the stakeholders.
