Manish Krishnan, Founder & CEO at ATCS Inc (Advanced Technology Consulting Service Inc)
As the world’s fastest growing economy this fiscal year, India added another feather to its cap. The Make in India initiative was introduced to boost national economy and has achieved much-deserved global recognition. With the economy becoming domestically oriented, the dependency on imports has been scaling down. In fact, the initiative has received its share of international support with global giants like Apple, who embrace it whole-heartedly.
Leading economies like USA and China also feature similar initiatives to boost their domestic economy. With its presence in all three leading economies, Advanced Technology Consulting Services (ATCS) has been focused on contributing to India’s domestic growth.
ATCS is a business and technology consulting firm specializing in offering technical solutions to global corporations. As a next-gen tech services provider, ATCS offers par excellence solutions in health care and automotive sectors. Aligned with the vision of Make in India, ATCS nurtures national talent and creates innovative solutions “from the ground-up”, rather than relying on already established time-tested models.
ATCS has focused on the emerging city, Jaipur, to create employment opportunities, foster innovation, harness skills and attract upcoming talent. This has also been a strategic move of the company to lower attrition rates that are prevalent in highly competitive tier 1 cities such as Mumbai and Bengaluru.
As Make in India expands manifold, so do ATCS’ goals to focus towards domestic businesses that will help create an impact at the domestic level. The company is continuously driven towards maintaining a healthy business environment and delivering high-quality business technology solutions.
