His prime idea behind the inception of Vertex Global Services was to deliver passionate and dedicated services to businesses.

He left the job, forfeited salaries & perks as well, and worked out of a base with minimal essentialities to achieve his dream. He always works in a diversified manner that can initiate more possibilities for him and his team.

We thoroughly revise our digital solutions considering the market situation to ensure streamlined services for our endearing clients.

Competition in the vast market world has been one of the challenges for team Vertex primarily, basically a competition for “price value of products and services’’. Various factors could easily influence the ultimate choice of the customers.
But the price component always caught the eyes of buyers at first and is mostly liable for changes in the business strategies and models. And Vertex is an organization where the majority of its focus is put to drive amazing innovations in products and services along with refining the quality of our work from time to time.

Gagan’s Take on Current Business Scenario Across the Globe after the Covid19 Pandemic
2020 has been quite a historic year. Seized by a global pandemic and exposed to major disruption, the world has undergone a lot of uncertainties. But technology, however, added a seam of resilience to businesses by making the abrupt shift in operating habits less disruptive.
I believe the new era of working has opened up more opportunities for disabled people. The Work from Home/Anywhere model has undergone a universal uptake in some divisions as a result of the pandemic. It had unlocked an opportunity for organizations to build or future-proof, inclusive workplace for people with disabilities. Whereas, an equal opportunity for disabled people to work and earn their livelihood.
For being said that, Vertex offers a stage to such especially- abled people with Vertex Digital Academy so that they can upskill themselves for the changing business landscape. The academy also has to offer internship opportunities so that they get to experience the corporate vantage before stepping into the world.

Innovation is like creativity. By that I mean creativity, when executed, becomes innovation.Gagan Arora
Gagan Shared his Thoughts on Innovation and Creativity:
Many people think that to be creative you have to plan it, schedule it, and ideate. I don’t believe this way. I believe Innovation is something that cannot be done in a vacuum. Being in the industry for more than two decades now I substantiate thoroughly the fact that innovation is something that is rooted in our DNA. This justifies the fact- Vertex is the no 1 innovative company in India and 19th in the world.
A non-obvious reason why we are constantly innovating is our people. Hiring remarkable talent that brings out-of-the-box thinking and agilities, and then creating an environment that empowers them with a space for growth. We being Accoladed as Best Place To Work is because of our equally influential culture- that cultivates a flexible environment that nurtures opinions and curiosity and entitles each person to drive their team as if it were their own company powering their growth which is yet another fact to our Business growth.
