By Developer Employee News Jan 13, 2021 No Comments on The year that was 2020 at Infomatics India!
COVID 19 virus threats and tests! Our hearts are with those who lost loved ones to the virus.
The pandemic hit us all with unprecedented sanitization rules, nationwide lockdowns, curfews, school and college shut downs for indefinite periods, virtual classrooms and business meetings, restricted travel, work from home culture, the economic fallout of COVID and challenges faced by the governments attempting to tackle the situation.
Stealing moments for Celebration
Inspite of all the chaos, we managed to push ahead with some of our goals:
INFOMATICS INDIA – Cascades Data Solutions got itself registered as doing business as Infomatics India. The new name will be CASCADES DATA SOLUTIONS DBA INFOMATICS INDIA PRIVATE LTD for all regulatory purposes. We can now link ourselves on all social media to Infomatics Corp USA.
ISO 9001 CERTIFICATION – We got ourselves certified for both locations of Hyderabad and Mangalore. Luckily before the pandemic, in January a consultant from the certifying body had visited us and briefed us on the procedures and documentation needed for the process. The lockdown and consequent work-from-home period was utilized to focus on streamlining the processes needed for the certification. Thanks to Muhammed Saleem for driving the onshore and offshore teams for this accomplishment. (Certificates in links below)
CREATION OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT TEAM –Meenaz Shariff, CEO of Infomatics India has taken the initiative of expanding the foray into Indian market. The first step was hiring of Business Development Manager, Neeha Alva. Neeha has been successful in getting our first client, IMPELYSIS, onboard!
VIRTUSA INDIA – We have pursued our strong ties with VIRTUSA USA to sign a “premier partner” recruitment agreement with Virtusa India. We have a dedicated team which will cater to the bulk requirements they release. Candidates will be assigned both contract and full time placements with Virtusa as needed.
MEA Region- We are also targeting the Middle East region and are in talks with prospective clients.
TECHNICAL & DEVELOPMENT TEAM
We acknowledge the extra efforts of our developers, Sandeep and team, who, except for the severe lockdown period, have operated out of Mangalore office, braving Covid challenges.
Our V-Form software product is almost near completion and testing is almost complete. Interns Thanush, Vinutha and Pooja are now permanent employees capable of taking up this difficult task.
RECRUTMENT TEAM – All recruiters, Sharad, Dilan and Bhargavi have motivated themselves despite falling business conditions to keep the tempo of recruitment going strongly.
MARKETING – Gopi, Ratnakar and Ajay from marketing have persevered and delivered.
FINANCE & ADMINISTRATION– On this, Vinod, Narayan & Apoorva took up additional responsibilities for timely execution of finance related tasks like payroll, timesheets and Invoicing coordination
CAMPUS RECRUITMENT DRIVES – This year, our campus recruitment drives were conducted through an online test, with only shortlisted candidates called for a in for an interview. We recruited at ST ALOYSIUS TECHNICAL COLLEGE and CANARA ENGINEERING COLLEGE, Mangalore. The selected interns will join in March 2021 as university exams are delayed this year.
We wish the Infomatics family a happy and prosperous 2021!
