Cutting Through the Complexities-
With the onset of digitization, even though almost all of the industries have adapted to it pretty aptly and quickly, it has been a challenge for companies to bring the decades of traditional format to a digital platform. This was one of the primary challenges faced by Unicampus.
Educational institutes have believed in the traditional format of things, and the company faced resistance from them to go digital. When Unicampus started, this idea of ERP software for educational institutes was scarce.
This idea came with resistance from the staff members, faced apprehensions of the management in terms of technical training that would be needed, of the budgetary concerns, raising a question of how beneficial would this be to the institution? This was a challenge, especially since most institutes didn’t know how to use the software. At the start, capital and brand building was major challenge.
“So, we were all prepared to create awareness, ensure training and a comfortable mindset even before the implementation to make it a seamless experience.”
Despite the challenges, Unicampus has had a successful journey thus far having implemented their ERP software in many schools, educational institutes and earned the recognition and gained the trust of many customers by becoming the most widely trusted software across the nation.

One of their major customers, a leading school with 25 branches, has continuously engaged with Unicampus and this was a turning point.

Srinivas’ Message to the Budding Entrepreneurs-
“Many entrepreneurs point to mistakes as being their best teachers. When you learn from your mistakes, you move closer to success even though you initially failed. So, learn from mistakes.
Build a great team. No one succeeds in business alone, and those who try will lose to a great team every time. Build your great team to bolster your success.
Act. The world is full of great ideas, but success only comes through action. The easiest way to get started is that you quit talking and start doing it. That’s true for your success as well.
Take the risk. We never know the outcome of our efforts unless we do it. So, take risks as it would help you to know that you wouldn’t regret failure, but you would regret not trying.
Customer focus and innovation is possible only when we do what we love with the extra zeal, go through the challenges, and everything that comes with running a successful business.”
