e-Centric is a provider of ERP, Software Solutions and Consulting. We develop business solutions and custom built applications for our customers mainly standalone applications, Provide Man power for varied industries in all verticals.
ECS was started in 2004 as a proprietorship primarily to provide a banner for freelance projects. Till 2009 it was dormant.
In June 2009 it was incorporated as a private limited company in the state of Karnataka, Republic of India. We formally started our business on July 16, 2009 from a small room in BTM Layout. For first year our main business was limited to development of software and web based solutions on turnkey project basis and maintenance of software, servers, applications and databases. By late 2010 we were serving customers in India, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.
In October 2010 we started developing our own ERP "TUHUND" as a customizable product.
In October 2011 we ventured into manpower recruitment to fill in the void. Though there are tens of thousands of placement consultancies in India, most of them limit their work to supply of resumes matching the requirements specified by customers. It is a well known fact that 75% of the candidates passing out from colleges are not employable. Similarly more than 50% of experienced candidates are also not up to the mark. Selection of right candidates for the job is therefore, a very difficult task. Generally placement consultancies flood the employer with resumes with just a couple of good candidates among thousands. The probability of selecting the best candidates is virtually none. At ECS we follow a different methodology. We do thorough screening for each position and forward only the top few candidates to the customer.
At e-Centric, we strive to maximize the profit of our customers. Our revenue is not generated by exploiting customers, but by leading, coaching, mentoring, supporting and helping them to generate revenue themselves.
Therefore, more than just contractual work, our business involves long term relations with our customers and in many cases their customers too.
Our this positioning puts us at an advantageous position where we are able to get our customers together where we feel two or more customers can benefit each other mutually.
Our mission is to take businesses to a path of continuous improvement to achieve maximum productivity and realize maximum profits leveraging on Information Technology, Human Resource and Project Management.
Our vision is to be a globally known organization that entrepreneurs can count on to make their business highly profitable.
ECS takes pride in its core business values:
We are very strong with the technologies we work on. We have selected a limited stack and have been continually improving ourselves in the same for two decades now. It is a very powerful combination and we make the best use of it.
We are the Linux People. On server side we have been working on RedHat Linux since version 7.1. We developed interest in RHEL when in 2002 Oracle migrated its development platform from SPARC/Solaris to x86/RHEL. Prior to that we too were using Sun Solaris and it was damn expensive.
Since we were focusing on providing cost effective solutions to small and medium business enterprises, Linux was the best option. It was ideal on the server side. It is fast, secure and free from virus issues. It is simpler to manage remotely. We have Linux servers running in several countries for last ten years almost unattended.
On server side we have exclusively used java / J2EE. For all our projects we formally and religiously create java docs. Before checking the code written by our developers, we check the docs. We have developed our own framework and our own development tools.
We have been practically growing together with Oracle. We have started with the first version for Linux, Oracle 8 and moved through every version till 19c. Normally we design all our applications in such a way that more than half of the business logic executes on the database server. We have created very complex tasks for the database and Oracle has supported us by executing them lightening fast.
Our choice for application server has always been Apache Tomcat. Though there are a number of servers, the reason we still prefer Apache Tomcat is that, over a period of time, we have developed additional scripts that make maintenance easy for us.
We have developed a number of client side, especially client server applications, using dotnet. Dotnet is our preferred choice for windows applications due to the speed of development. Several of our own development tools and maintenance tools like NOC Dashboards have been developed using dotnet.
For quite a while we have been developing purely native mobile applications as hybrid applications used to have a number of limitations and performance issues. Our own mobile applications, like Tuhund mobile app, were all developed using native technologies. However, with radical improvements in Ionic we have switched over to hybrid. We still have capability of developing native Andriod and IOS applications, but rarely come across a good reason to to that any more.
