Surmounting the Challenges
The past couple of years have been challenging for businesses of all kinds, thanks to the unprecedented pandemic outbreak. With inflation at a 30-year high, FLC Infotech was able to hire quality personnel even with the tech industry cutting back budgets and incurring layoffs. Finding funding to expand hiring and Wall Street cutting back their financial commitments to investment growth in dealmaking to their investment banking partners/customers have been the major challenges for the company of late. “We want to expand operations, but the deal funding has dried up currently,” Ankur mentions.
The pandemic has also made businesses rethink their strategies and mode of operations. FLC Infotech is disrupting the traditional way of working by adopting the trend of remote working. According to Ankur, this allows the team to have more productivity and access to many more territories at once. He further adds that this is a great asset to work smarter and more efficiently.
FLC Infotech is a Managed Service Provider and Implementation Partner with Crowdstrike and Zscaler. These partnerships enable the company to address the needs of its customers who are saddled with legacy technology that sometimes cannot defend against a cyber-attack. The option of providing cloud-based services from its partners allows the company to succeed as a startup.
Furthermore, both these partnerships allow FLC Infotech and Ankur to work with two of the most successful companies in the cybersecurity space. “With their support in client acquisition and marketing, we will be able to penetrate various markets such as Financials, Sled, Healthcare, Banking, Higher Education, non-profits, and any other markets that we can build relationships with any targeted clients we want to pursue,” adds Ankur.
Since FLC Infotech is still in its growth stage, the relationships it has with Crowdstrike and Zscaler are three-year contracts presently. These companies will aid in FLC’s growth, particularly in recruiting and hiring alongside sales and marketing functions. Ankur believes that as the economy regains its footing and capital markets begin a more aggressive approach to a more favorable interest rate, finding funding will be favorable for the company.
