In an interview with Mr. Pawas Goyal, founder of Cylsys Software Solution Pvt.Ltd lets discover more about the company and his journey till now.
- What were the initial challenges you faced?
The initial days in 2010 were tough as being a new entrant in the Business it was difficult to convince new clients to place faith in our work as we did not have any portfolio of work at that time to show. We gradually built this portfolio by taking up piecemeal work of some larger project, but at the same time which was challenging to our developer team. And today when we are catering to some of the big names in the industry, we look back in satisfaction at our entire journey which has been built from scratch with dedication, hard work, and by the loyal team at Cylsys Software. All credit to them!
- Which was that point that triggered the growth of the company?
It would be the time when we got the software development project from a major Mutual Fund house to develop a part of their process system. This project led to the expansion of the team, new premises, new goals, and a new determination to conquer new horizons.
- What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success?
It would have to be the Brilliant Team, Integrity, Dedication, and the belief that we are partners in the Client’s goals and if we are able to contribute to the client’s success via our contribution to the software development of their project, nothing means more than that.

- Is there any special experience with your clients you would like to highlight?
The brief from the client was they required 25 Desktop Support Engineers having skillsets of having excellent knowledge and working experience of Microsoft Office, Router, WiFi, Lan, and other desktop related issues, across 23 locations in India for a contract period of 3 months. The time frame to complete this assignment was NOW. The challenge for Cylsys was to ensure getting quality candidates matching the required skill sets and who were willing to join immediately for a contract period of 3 months. It is a very tough task to secure the services of someone in the IT domain for a temporary period and that too at such short notice. To compound issues, most of the 23 locations were remote locations and were mostly on the outskirts of major cities and therefore required a long commute by the candidates from the mentioned cities.
- How did Cylsys Software (IT staffing vertical) help –
The Delivery Team at Cylsys Software did a stupendous job by doing the following and completed this requirement in a record time of less than a month with all selected candidates joining all 23 locations on the given date and successfully completing their contract period with only appreciation from the client.
Cylsys has a huge database of candidates across Skill sets in the IT domain. The Delivery team dug deep and could shortlist the majority of the candidates from the internal database itself. The rest were shortlisted through references and lastly the job portals.
The Client wanted Cylsys to conduct the Technical round at our end and only share Resumes of candidates shortlisted by the Technical team. So the internal Technical team of Cylsys Software held the technical round with all the shortlisted candidates and ensured that only quality candidates were selected and sent for the Training & Orientation programme at the 23 locations before commencing duties.
As the selected candidates would be on the payroll of Cylsys Software, the HR team did a fabulous job of collecting documents and doing reference checks of the selected candidates before issuing each of the 25 candidates their respective offer letters. And also following up with the candidates for getting the acceptance of the offers.
The Delivery team micro-managed the entire process and ensured that each selected candidate reached their respective location for the training at the stipulated date and time. For Candidates who were coming from other States, Cylsys had to also coordinate their Travel itinerary.
With a couple of candidates falling ill during this contract tenure and unable to continue, the Delivery team ensured that the replacement candidates were on the job in the shortest possible time as they had kept Backup candidates on standby in anticipation of such a situation arising.
All the 25 Candidates at all 23 locations successfully completed their contracts with the client having only words of appreciation for the diligent work done by them. And the Client giving an assurance that Cylsys Software would be the preferred vendor to be considered for any of their future IT Staffing requirements. It was a challenge servicing such an urgent Staffing requirement for such an esteemed client. But a Challenge met successfully by the Cylsys Software IT Staffing Team!!

- Constant vigilance- a need or a strategy? Please share your views.
A balanced outlook of Vigilance and Trust would be the ideal scenario.
