Take us through the inception story of Smartapp in the Indian industry.
In May 2021, we began our India sales journey with technological presentations and demos to a select group of industry professionals. We had a decent opportunity of knowing industry needs, as well as the Indian industry's current systems, procedures, and techniques. We were able to quickly demonstrate how we can implement agile construction methods that help collect data from the field and present it to the office across multiple locations using our No code Fusion Platform, integrated tools that are very specific to the construction industry, and pre built/ready to use apps that help to digitize the work streams. This allowed us to swiftly obtain a few clients in India. We are certain that the Smartapp.com Fusion and Integrated Platform, together with its agile construction processes, will provide a very novel solution to project teams that are now juggling various applications to solve difficulties.
