Business details

Desicrew started off with digitization services such as data entry and data conversion. They have also added services such as content creation and validation, GIS based mapping services, transcription and localisation.The company follow a distributed operations model, whereby the Chennai office acts as the interface between the client and the rural centres. While the villages gain from the employment opportunities and the infrastructure, the client gets a cost advantage of up to 40% of their current costs. The biggest challenge was creating infrastructure in a rural setting that was as good as client’s office in a Delhi, Mumbai or Bangalore and changing the perception in the minds of people in urban India that work could be done out of the hinterland and with the same quality. The other was to establish with our rural teams the concept of a BPO and that if work could travel to them.
