Our Story

aSaw is one of the few female founded and led start-ups which has registered sizeable growth and profitability over the years. We began with a vision to leverage open source data to solve problems faced both by B2B and B2C companies and so our streak of innovation vis-à-vis products has always imbibed the necessity of presenting solutions that fix business problems.   Our approach to problem solving was entirely pragmatic. The first clients we had led us to make the products which enabled solutions for all the players in the market facing similar issues. So, the ideation of SOLDiT for Lead Generation happened because we landed one of the biggest banks as our client, similarly SPyDER as an AML platform was conceived to aid one of the largest casinos in Pennsylvania with due diligence.   Continuing with this streak of innovation, we now perceive the ‘Talent Crunch’ in the IT industry as an emerging problem exacerbated by ‘The Great Resignation’ globally. We see this as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the demand and supply of tech-resources and so we’re in the process of launching HiReachy as a Hiring Support Service partnering with businesses in enabling them to hire the most culturally fit candidates leveraging AI.  During the pandemic, we pivoted our Business model to invest in Data Security and Cloud platforms leveraging AI/ML tech. This year we’re strongly pushing an expansive strategy and to that end will be opening an office in USA and invest in reinforcing our tech capabilities and Business Development both in India and abroad.   We are honoured to be featured as ‘The Best of 5 Recommended Analytics Companies in 2020’ by The Enterprise World.

The knock of adversity is never welcome, however, when faced with a fait accompli, it’s the smart choices which ensure endurance. Being a Pro Talent and Service First organisation, our responses to Covid-19 was to value our team members and their safety while ensuring accountability on our client deliverables. All our employees benefit from Covid insurance.
