How We Got Here
Years of Experience
Meet The Team
Chief Executive Officer
I founded Biztech with the vision to bridge the gap between business needs and technology. Coming from the technology background, it was a natural transition that has shaped the success of Biztech in the past 13 years. However, Biztech's success is truly a collective effort of everyone involved since its inception.
It is important to cultivate a culture of learning and provide opportunities for individuals to grow. In my experience, it gives astounding stability to projects, brings creative ideas to the table, and gives long term returns. It is something that has given an excellent retention ratio in terms of the resources as well as our clientele.
Biztech's vision is to fulfill the role of providing solutions that are beyond the scope of work and to make contributions that add value. Only a learning organization that is not only driven by the processes but is also responsive to the ever-changing landscape, can offer such a solution.
Over the years, we’ve helped our clients go from being SMBs to Enterprises. Our motto is to grow by helping you grow.
I help keep Biztech’s business model sustainable which in turn helps Biztech spread its wings and try out new things. I guide Maulik, CEO of Biztech, in making any major financial decisions.
Apart from handling the finance department, I am the CEO of one of our verticals that revolves around Ecommerce and ERP products. Having a passion for eCommerce and its future capabilities, I learned about it gradually and developed a deep interest in CRM simultaneously. This, in turn, helped me take AppJetty, to new heights of success. I have been associated with Biztech IT Consultancy since its inception in the capacity of Finance Director as well as Magento and CRM Evangelist for AppJetty.
All these years have been engaged in crafting and developing multiple Ecommerce and CRM Extensions with diverse features and usabilities for online businesses, seeking advanced business solutions for keeping pace with the changing trends of eCommerce. It is never easy for a small store owner to stay connected and competitive in this dynamic marketplace, which shifts its paradigm every few days. This inspired me to create something useful, yet cost-effective, for online merchants enabling them to address the dynamism of the global eCommerce platform.
I have been a part of Biztech’s journey since its beginning and have helped make Biztech a place to grow, to learn, and to express oneself. It was my conscious effort to develop the culture that makes everyone feel at home and part of the family - beyond everything else. My own first-hand experience that had helped me bring the best of myself to the table, made me understand the importance of a friendly work culture. Hence, I stressed on embedding these values within the culture of Biztech. And, continue to nurture it. As a result, a majority of our leads have started their career with us and grown over the years.
When it comes to people management, I pay attention to listening instead of focusing on the processes and the goals. My idea of building an organization is not just attracting talent, but also to provide a system that builds talents. This approach not only helped us during the early years of Biztech but also laid a foundation for the collaborative agile working teams we have today.
