1. Tell Us about yourself how you start your career in IT Sector?
Innovative technologies have always inspired me to become a tech geek, and in 2000, I stepped into this world. During my graduation and completion of projects, I have gained immense knowledge about web designing and development.
Hired by GFTL as a software engineer, I got transparency in professionalism while playing the role of a skilled developer. And from that time onwards, I never looked back and keep on advancing in the industry.
2. Tell us in brief about your company and the leadership.
Being a technopreneur by heart and technophile by profession, I built a vision to provide futuristic technologies through a reliable platform. And with valiant efforts and consistent measures, I have established my own software development company – Appventurez
The company is now providing full-fledged mobile app and web development solutions across the globe. Year by year, the company is growing consistently with my support to project managers and development teams.
Today, we have a complete technology stack for building iOS, Android, and cross-platform apps. Right now, the company has a stronghold among the leading IT companies with the help of more than 150 tech geeks and experts.
My first and most prioritized objective is to spread qualitative, innovative, and astonishing mobile app solutions. Appventurez ensures to meet the clients’ requirements and with intrepid progress.
3. What is your outlook for 2021?
2020 was completely unpredictable. There were only disappointments all across the globe and no government, enterprise, or any leading business could ever have anticipated. On the other side, the adoption of mobile apps was rising consistently during the lockdown period. And that’s where I got the track to fight against the slowdown of industries.
In my opinion – “Creativity has its own path of discovery”. While on the one side, people were losing their jobs due to shaky financial grounds of global markets, Appventurez made a firm decision by hiring 100+ skilled professionals. The process continued post-lockdown as well.
In 2021, my company got 50+ projects along with appreciation from the previous clients till now. And I am aiming to expand our reach for more innovative assignments from different regions of the works. With a steep rise in investment along with revenue, I saw a big opportunity to grow the network and reach more business partners.
4. How do you assess the role of research agencies like TopappFirms in bridging the gap between clients and service providers?
TopappFirms is a great platform for clients who are looking to hire or partner with a reliable IT firm. Whether a business needs an e-commerce development firm or a cloud solutions provider, this platform has listed them all.
TopappFirms has categorized every IT solutions provider to ease the process of finding the most relevant firm. Moreover, companies also have the opportunity to get listed on the site to find new partners and build their clientele.
Another feature that impressed me a lot is ‘The Interview’ section on the website. It embraces the viewpoints shared by the CEOs of different IT companies during their interviews. This can assure businesses about the transparency and reliability attained by the TopappFirms while listing all the IT solutions providers.
5. Any particular technology or industry you would be targeting? How do you plan to prepare your workforce for the upcoming technology upgrade?
Being a tech leader in the app development industry, I have always tried to collaborate with innovative minds and build futuristic products. Not just the IT industry, but my company is providing solutions for other domains as well.
Till now, Appventurez has delivered solutions for Pharmaceutical companies, e-commerce businesses, e-commerce startups, and other growing businesses. Moreover, there is no advanced technology that is unblendable for my development teams.
Along with the industrial latest trends, they keep their skills and knowledge upgraded to carve every challenge successfully. For instance, Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference revealed new advancements that my development teams adopted and upgraded their frameworks according to them.
For every upgrade or update in the latest technologies, my employees are always ready to adapt to new aspects of the industry.
6. What all services do you think you would add to your offerings in 2021?
So far, Appventurez has attained all the major departments along with software development – such as customer experience development, strategy and planning, product design and development, and a lot more.
In the near future, I am looking to expand the venture with more tech advancements like Microsoft Dynamics, IT security and testing, and business intelligence automation.
7. What are the challenges you see in the outsourcing industry and how much you’re prepared to face those challenges?
The outsourcing industry offers some major benefits, however, there are various risks businesses need to face. Since they are outsourcing their projects or solutions to another firm, there should be clear transparency of the contract or agreement.
The key areas which should be improved of outsourcing domain are:
- Turnaround time or committed delivery period
- Language & time zone barriers
- Lack of management
- Inconsistent expertise
Being the leader of a professional IT and software development company, I believe in maintaining professionalism throughout the partnership. With transparent processes and a reliable business framework, clients can approach us flexibly and experience the quality of work we sustain.
8. How helpful are the Web and mobile apps developed by your team, for enhancing your clients’ business?
All the development teams of my company work according to the requirements of the clients. They communicate with them to understand their perspectives and ideologies. Once they start building the desired product, they follow the agile methodology to cover every aspect that clients need.
Moreover, our mobile app and web solutions can be integrated with additional technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud automation, smart data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI). These technologies are capable to differentiate our client’s business from others in the industry.
9. What according to you are the best practices to attain client satisfaction?
I personally feel that the key to achieving client satisfaction is to meet their core expectations. In order to do that, we follow a strategic approach:
- Attaining consistent communication

12. What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2021 after COVID 19?
The market price of developers has taken a big leap. The losses of employment and businesses made people to raise their hourly rate for recovery. But Appventurez kept everything in mind and didn’t flicker the rates to take the situation as granted.
Our hourly rates lie between 25$ – 35$, and if a business wants a complete project to be done by our developers then the charges will start from $5000 per project. The prices may vary according to the requirements.

Appevnturez keeps the operational structure in a logical and chronological manner. Our experts handle clients with complete professionalism and corporate disciplines. The process is structured with a complete of events and processes.
Until the interaction comes to a point where project discussion starts, we follow the ethics of handling a client. Then our experts understand their vision, expectation, and requirements for the desired product.
At every stage of product development, we keep the client in the loop. With consistent follow-ups and conferences, we provide every resource through which they can track our progress. Until we deploy the solution at their service, we maintain consistency with these processes.
14. After service is a necessary part of development. How do you provide customer support to your client?
Appevnturez always keeps their clients on priority – whether it is the middle of the night or a morning conference call. My development teams and project coordinators are always available to provide full-fledged support to our precious clients. And that’s why we are getting appreciation from across the globe.
15. Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
Every platform has its own significance. But what’s best for a business will always remain superior for their app as well. Choosing the type of app totally depends on your target audience, business approach, and objectives.
For instance, if you require an e-Commerce app then it would be better to choose the cross-platform app. Then you will be able to target most of the audience, region, or reach goals more appropriately.
