Project Title: Entry strategy into the Small Office and Home Office segment for IT Infrastructure Solutions Businesses
Project Description: Kerala and even India at large has seen a surge in small office/home office segment over the past few years. Some analysts put the growth rate at 37 percent for the financial year 2011-12 (http://www.smallenterpriseindia.com). Many factors explain this. Chief among them being the increasing cost of rentals, growing urbanisation and government support for small and medium enterprises. This trend is seen mostly in the case of business like consultancies (legal, engineering, medical, social development, real estate, graphic designers etc), BPOs, DTP Operators, Travel Agents, Financial Advisors, Stock Brokers, Software Application Developers, Advertisers, Telecallers, cottage and handicrafts manufactures etc. These businesses have a strong requirement for customised IT Infrastructure Solutions. The trends in IT Infrastructure Solutions space like Cloud Computing, Low Cost Internet Sharing Solutions, Google Drive, Memory Devices etc have a lot to offer this segment of businesses. At Zyxware, we are looking to engage with this segment in the district of Trivandrum. With our full range of products and competence in Information Technology, we can offer consultancy, design and implementation support for IT Infrastructure Solutions to these businesses.
