Kolkata-based Wizertech Informatics is all set to expand its operations,

geographically as well as by adding new verticals and solutions. Wizertech has

gone through a wholesome transformation in the last couple of years. From being

a mere box pusher, it is now into full-time solution providing and system

integration. Over time, the company has developed essential technical know-how

and expertise in the fields such as server and storage vertical, IP convergence

(voice, data and video) and power management. "Responding to the need of

the hour, we changed our position. Customers now want to have a single point of

contact for all their IT needs. To attain this expertise, we hired professional

manpower and have also restructured our entire business operation, making it

more systematic and process driven," informed Shankar G Choudhury,

Head-Business Development, Wizertech Informatics.

Wizer had initially started its business at a sub-disti level for IBM servers

and later on included its storage, desktop and laptops range as well. Now, as a

solution provider (SP), the company has partnered with OEMs like IBM, HP, Cisco,

APC, Polycom, etc. Last FY, Wizertech had clocked revenue of Rs 80 crore and

this year, it is targeting a growth of 130 percent.

Meanwhile, the company has successfully reinforced its position as an SP by

developing domain expertise in server and storage. As part of its lateral

expansion plans, last year Wizertech has added two more verticals, IP networking

and power management to its fold. "We have been very focused in

strengthening our backend infrastructure in order to support the required

changes and also leveraging on the changes for the high growth that we have

witnessed in the last fiscal," said Choudhury. The company has developed

customized solutions for its customers from various industries including,

manufacturing, steel, railways, education, healthcare, government, etc. "We

have also been a part of installing APAC's first IBM eServer p5 590 server in

the Indian Association of Cultivation of Science at Jadavpur University,"

informed Choudhury. The company has also developed a strong service support

infrastructure and is one of the leading support partners for IBM. "Our

Bhubaneswar office is the largest ThinkPad repairing center," he added.


To support its upward growth, Wizertech already has its geographical presence

in 12 locations across India, including Kolkata, Guwahati, Bhubaneswar, Siliguri,

Raipur, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and Delhi. Apart from that, it

has recently opened a branch in Bangalore and will shortly open more branches in

cities like Patna, Chennai and Hyderabad.
