Please provide a brief overview of your product/service?
We are a Business Software and IT firms marketplace ― Connecting buyers considering to procure software or/and IT services, with the right vendors.
What inspired you to build the above product/service?
Searching for the best software is crucial for any business. When a potential buyer approaches a Software company for their requirements, generally they encounter a sales pitch only. So we have built Techimply ― a Marketplace where buyers can search for the software as per their needs by using filters. Additionally, they also find comparisons and research articles.
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
Navigating the business through the Covid times was the most challenging part. But we are happy that we have successfully steered through the tough times without firing any employees or even issuing any pay cuts to the employees.
How did you overcome initial mindset challenges?
When we launched the business, we became more confident in moving forward as we invested our time and energy into it. My current mindset is mostly focused on strategy, which requires understanding the market needs, and what buyers and Software vendors are looking for. Furthermore, by using our research, teamwork, and expertise we ensure satisfaction for our vendors.
According to you, what are the three qualities an individual must have to achieve success?
Individuals wishing to start their own business may significantly benefit from staying up-to-date with the newest technologies and trends relevant to their specific industry.
Patience – You must have this quality when you are building your business as you can’t build it in a couple of months.
Being Proactive – You will face a lot of difficulties in the business-building journey but what you have to do is take quick action on that.
What is your life mantra?
Stick to your goals. If you are not able to achieve it change the plan not the goal.
Which online tools/ services/ apps do you use the most and would like to recommend as well?
We have built Techimply on PHP language as we were looking for a custom and secure platform so we choose that. And I am very happy with my decision because it helped us a lot in terms of Hacker attacks. We face it twice this year but our data is still secure thanks to Laravel security.
