Blog » Lavelle Networks – A Software-Defined But Business Driven WAN in Top 50 Startups
When an award just walks-in through the door, without knocking, that moment of exultation is rare. Such humble testament helps release the dopamine, to seek further on the road to success and glory. Doesn’t matter how coarse the path is! Especially when you are operating in an ever evolving and competitive landscape like the technology sector. Last night, team Lavelle Networks felt enthralled on being declared, one among the top 50 Start-Ups in India.
Organised by Smart CEO in partnership with Facebook, the 4th edition of Startup50 Conference and Awards focused on recognizing top 50 promising startups of India in various sectors – including technology, healthcare, financial services, consumer, retail etc.
Amidst the amazing numbers of contenders (New Start-ups and Companies) in the SD-WAN landscape today in India, this award seemed like a shoutout from the crowd, to let us know that you’re doing a good job!! We’re thrilled at this opportunity!! And we would like to thank each and everyone of you out there, who along us believed in our vision and mission.
Globally, India today tops the chart as one of the innovation hubs in technology. Thanks to The Government of India’s Digital India initiative that worked in favor of the country to move towards advancement of next gen technology. As a result, democratization of latest technology is occurring rapidly. Transformation to digital is happening much faster than expected. This, no doubt has played a significant role in spurring the market for SD-WAN. And in India’ quest to the future, the country today, is in desperate need of advance network infrastructure.
As we reminisce further on our journey, few moments seems it was yesterday. The Café at Lavelle Road, Bengaluru, where the seeds of this solid foundation were planted, our first customer contract to the first time when we got funded by Ideaspring. Since then, months have flown by, with no time to look back.
So, what has changed?
Our Size – Our hidden secret to success is, a diverse range of talents operating with agility, dedication and honesty. Quite similar to our SD-WAN product which promises to deliver fast, reliable and secure enterprise networking.
Our Customers base – Customers are our advocates. In one of our meetings when we were discussing why Lavelle Networks is winning in the market. This is what came out. One of the sales heads said- “I simply say that if you experience Lavelle Networks customer support even once, you will not go anywhere”. And this is especially true. Headed by one of our most customer obsessed leader- Drritiman, we are delivering a superb customer experience consistently. And the testament to that are the number of referrals our customers are giving out in the market, a very high NPS score and the large scale expansion we are seeing with our existing customers.
Our Partners – Together with our partners, we’re able to deliver next generation WAN solution in major segments like BFSI, Retail, Manufacturing and e-commerce. Check out our Partner Programme for more information.
Product Innovation – Innovation is the keyword in your Mission, Vision and Culture, which is well reflected in our product innovation strategy. 2019 will be a significant year in terms of our product road map.
Although we continue to scale and innovate, the primary pillars of our foundation will never change.
Nothing less than the best – As we scale up, quality of our services and products will only rise. We refuse to change our standards in our commitment to our Customers, Partners, and Employees.
Candidness and Transparency – We’ve been maintaining relationship with our customers, partners and employees through candor and transparency. It works for us because ultimately it results in creating a culture of togetherness.
Being Radical to innovation and creativity – Innovation is the keyword in our credo. Our Leaders, offer their full support and encouragement in doing things differently and creatively. This has helped us to deliver. Every job function is customer obsessed, innovation hungry, ambitious and competitive, acting as one company.
While 2017 was about initial Enterprise wins, 2018 has been about establishing ourselves as one of the top SD-WAN players in the enterprise networking market, starting from our home ground. Our goal is to continue this growth into the global market in the next two years. At the same time, it was necessary to build the leadership team and the overall company structure to empower everyone to actually have a shot at reaching the lofty goals we set for ourselves. A lot of what we wanted to achieve headed in the right direction. Last week, we partnered with Cloudtexo Ltd and DELL EMC to expand our footprint in the global markets.
2018 has set us up to go further and beyond. We constantly strive towards faster and faster execution. We compete with ourselves to be better than best we have been…
