Zooms in on Rajasthan’s Rs. 11,000 crore SME market
Deskera, a leading cloud-based business software provider, is eyeing the Rajasthan SME market with its GST-ready software suite beneficial to businesses as India readies to welcome the Goods and Services Tax (GST) by April 2017. With hands-on experience of tweaking its GST-ready solution to different needs of different countries at a price that is affordable to the SMEs, the company aims at gaining a strong foothold in the Rajasthan SME market with top clients expected to come from textiles, garments, marble and granite, cement and jewelry manufacturers. Besides manufacturing, Deskera can fulfill the requirements of companies engaged in trading, distribution, engineering, building and construction.
Rajasthan is an SME hub, engaging largely in industrial and mamanufacturing activities. According to the Rajasthan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the total number of SMEs in the state is around 3.35 lakh with total investments at Rs. 11,000 crore. They provide employment to more than 14 lakh people in the state. There are more than 750 textile manufacturers and over 700 marble and granite manufacturers spread across the state who play a crucial role in the state’s economy.
“We are the first cloud-based software provider to have a GST- ready business software suite in India. We can help enterprises make the shift towards GST seamlessly. Our cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) helps SMEs migrate to an integrated cloud platform, thus enhancing productivity and promoting the government’s ‘Make in India’ mission,” said Somesh Misra, Co-founder and VP Operations, Deskera.
The move is indeed strategic given the landmark law reform expected to sweep India with demand for relevant IT products to help companies take the leap in favour of GST, expected to shoot up.
According to Mr. Misra, there lies a huge potential for aggressively pushing software penetration in the state’s industries. Deskera is looking to help make businesses simpler, more user-friendly and automated, thus enhancing operational efficiency.
In line with the Rajasthan government’s endeavor to encourage and give a boost to the SMEs in the state and create a favorable environment for them to attain global competitiveness, Deskera is doing its bit to aid Rajasthan towards Digital India.
“Integrated cloud-based ERP software is the need of the hour for the industries of Rajasthan. Deskera products can help them optimize their businesses in today’s competitive world,” said Dhiraj Vijayvargia, Managing Director, Priyam Infosystems Private Limited. (Rajasthan Authorised Distributor)
