The evening began with an interactive session by Limesh Parekh of Enjay IT Solutions. A renowned member of ASIRT, Parekh shared insightful innovations in the Mobile CRM domain, with special NFR product package offering 75 per cent discount exclusively for ASIRT members and partners. Through the presentation and the product demo, Parekh highlighted the need for businesses to adopt CRM for creating an organised and updated database that would assist sales and marketing staff to have a better rate of lead generation and thus grow business.
Among other offerings, he spoke of Enjay’s Telephony, Tally on Cloud, Thin Client and Linux on Desktop solutions, all designed to meet the requirements of Indian businesses and entrepreneurs. Parekh also introduced two new solutions – the attendance system and the mobile quotation system for Indian MSMEs.
Speaking about his range of products, Parekh said, “All Enjay products are designed and developed keeping in mind the ease of functioning and mindset of the Indian businesses. Our goal is to create an ecosystem where Indian businesses can easily leverage the latest technology offerings and grow their business exponentially. In the coming year, we at Enjay will be focusing on building a strong channel partner network through aggressive cross-selling and upselling of products and services. Our products offer great profit margins with scope for recurring earnings, where every time a customer renews its service with Enjay, the partners get paid, like a SIP account. Apart from the CRM packages for partners and SME’s, Tally on Cloud is the largest growing segment in India and will also be the focus for structured expansion of Enjay through channel partners. Additionally, for 2019, we also plan on exploring emerging technologies like AI and chatbots and integrate them in innovative Enjay products and services, that can be accessible to Indian SMEs and start-ups.”
Another session was led by Rohit Sharma, Regional Channel Manager, and Ashmar Kalangottil, Technical Sales Consultant, DCG, both of Lenovo Global Technology (India), who shared an insightful presentation on Lenovo’s servers, data centre management, and engineering solutions.

The channel partners and SIs contribute 95 per cent of our business, making them crucial to our success and growth. Thus all our future marketing and sales strategies and investments are focussed on the SI community and we are thus glad to have a platform like ASIRT to reach out to the channel partners in Mumbai. We look forward to the continuous support and mutual growth.”
