One of the core tenets of Karsun’s culture is investing in people and their ideas. The company has its own “innovation center,” where employees are tasked with analyzing IT market trends and developing innovative solutions for customers. As the company has grown, it has been able to compete for larger contracts. “As a result, we face increased levels of competition and pricing pressures,” says Vaidyanathan. “The key strategy we have adopted so far is differentiating our solution offerings and focusing only on niche opportunities involving software development, cloud solutions and advanced analytics.”
