One of the major disruptive technologies known as cloud computing is thriving in the Indian tech market in recent years.

SaaS or Software-as-a-Service is the core model of cloud computing that hosts an application on its servers through a seamless internet connection. India has started reaping the benefits of the SaaS industry for efficient business functions across the world. The global SaaS market is projected to hit US$272.49 billion in 2021 with a CAGR of 20.8%.

Saravana Kumar, Founder and CEO, Kovai.co has identified the opportunities of the SaaS industry in the Indian domestic market and has described how Kovai. co is focused on growing local technology hubs in the next few years.

Kovai.co is a multi-product enterprise SaaS company specializing in enterprise integration and knowledge management space based out of Coimbatore, India, and London, UK. Over the years, it has grown organically to five products with more than 200 team members currently serving over 1500 customers across the world.

Creating flagship enterprise SaaS products, combining technology expertise with domain experience is the forte. Additionally, Kovai.co built a successful global product technology company out of the home city – Coimbatore— the team’s unique competence.

As a technology community-oriented company, Kovai. co conducts various technical activities to sharpen people’s skills, especially in enterprise software and SaaS. Over the last few years, it has extended insights to colleges and universities across Tamil Nadu through Kovai.co Connect program, an industry-academia initiative.

The program’s core focus is to reach out to engineering students who are aspiring to enter the SaaS industry from tier-2 cities— making them industry-ready by providing more acumen on how product development and SaaS innovation happen at the ground level.

The team is steadily identifying and building the next-gen talent in such growing markets. What the SaaS or the tech industry in the country today needs is the nurturement of local talent, so they get the right opportunity at the right time. It will reduce the talent shifting to established markets like Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, etc., and grow local technology hubs in other parts of the nation for even socio-economic growth.

Speaking about client benefits, some of the Kovai. co’s products are addressing the gaps when working or managing the Microsoft Azure or serverless environments. And the most recent product, Document360, helps companies create an online self-service knowledge base for their customers and employees.

He has been recognized as an MVP for 15 years in a row. Last year, Kovai. co was awarded the “Bootstrapped SaaS Startup of the Year” by SaaSBoomi.

The same year the company reached US$10 million in annual recurring revenue and acquired more than 1500 customers globally. The team works in the context of building great software products to solve daily business problems. This is a passionate group of people crafting best-in-class global B2B and SaaS products from a city like Coimbatore.

The aim is to transform Coimbatore into the next big SaaS hub in the country by growing local talent. In India, more businesses have now realized the importance of subscribing to SaaS products to scale growth rather than build from scratch and end up spending huge money, time, and energy.

Though the adoption of SaaS is lower compared to Europe, America, and other advanced countries, the company can see an upswing— thus the aim is to build more awareness on this and have SaaS play a major role in their digital and business growth.

Mr Saravana Kumar made the name of Coimbatore proud all over the world. He is a role model for youngsters in Coimbatore. YourCoimbatore.com wishes him more success.
