Praveen Joshi, Driving Force Behind the Success of BSL-i
Praveen Joshi, Founder & Managing Director of BSL Information Technology, founded BSL-i in association with other Operational Director, Danny Bird in 2009. He holds a Masters in Electronic Commerce from Middlesex University, UK. Praveen oversees the Sales & Marketing along with the key account management for the company. He has successfully delivered various key IT projects for large multinationals in various industries from Media, Oil & Gas, Transport to Manufacturing.
Initially, the company had a team size of 4, which they have expanded to approximate 50 staff across various domains over the last few years. Although start-ups have become favor-of-the-season nowadays, things were not really the same few years back for a small new start-up. Recruiting for the best resources during the early years of the establishment was a challenge to them. They also had to establish various processes for smooth communication between onsite and offsite team. Though the majority of their team is based in India, they have a strong presence both in UK and US market.
They operate on principles of Commitment to timely delivery, Communication and regular update to client and Consultancy based approach. They work closely with customers to advise them how their processes can be improved. They believe IT projects are a two way process whereby they can share their technical knowledge with customer and utilize their functional knowledge to deliver the right solution.
