Delhi, May 2 2014: What drives Interra, the largest privately held offshore consulting company with operations in India?
'Hunger', says President and Managing Director Asoke Laha. It is the collective hunger of all its people to excel, to be the best of breed in every niche they address, he explained on a recent visit to the San Jose, California- headquartered company's twin global delivery centres in NOIDA, near Delhi, and in Kolkata.
Since co founding the company with Dr Ajoy Bose, in Delhi, back in 1995, -- both were senior executives at Cadence Design Systems -- Laha has seen the roster of Interra's clients grow to include such names as Dell, HP and VMWare. The company offers a portfolio of IT and IT-enabled services with a focus on product engineering services, ERP solutions, web-based custom enterprise applications and mobile application development.
"We don't try to compete with the likes of Infosys or Wipro", Laha says, "We look to serve the very large number of mid sized companies in the $ 1 million to $ 10 million size range -- and many of our clients are Fortune 1000 companies".
Evolving with the rapid changes in technology, Interra sees a niche opportunity in enterprise mobility. It's own solution in this area is an integrated end-to-end Mobile Solution which streamlines and mobilizes manual business processes making real time information available at the click of a button.
The healthcare arena has been a recent Interra focus and their mobility solution is helping transform the industry, alerting doctor, monitoring patients, consulting specialists, updating patient records.... all around popular devices like smartphones or tablets.
Similar 'mobile' solutions are flowing from Interra's India-based developers working in areas like telecom, Retail, Financial Services and Logistics. And yes, in keeping with the company's mantra, we might call them their own Hunger Games!
