Sandeep completed his B.Com Hons and could not control his entrepreneurial instincts. He ventured into business and was associated with leading brands in the country acting as Dealer for the products of Bajaj, Honda, Godrej, Burroughs, NCR etc.
The last mentioned company dealership changed his track over the years. He ventured into banking related areas through the scanning of documents and cheques and then, naturally diversified into other areas of banking. Slowly, banking became BFSI focused and he started offering services to insurance, broking and NBFCs as well. At the same time, he also ventured into a direct contract with VFS for their in-plant work and thus began a long and growing relationship. He is known for building strong relationships and this can be seen from the fact that many clients have not left SmartData ever since they became customers—the penetration has only increased with additional geography.
His thirst for doing things in a different manner also led him into the Revenue Management activity for Utility companies and thus was born the Kiosk/ATPMs. With his knowledge of scan machines, he ventured into service contracts for scanners and then moved on to POS machines and ATMs. He has a huge appetite for growth and this resulted in the take-over of a business from Matrix which had a lot of synergy—geographically as well as on the product offerings. His vision for diversification has actually helped the company, as it is unaffected even during the worst recessionary period for the BFSI industry.
Sandeep adopts an absolutely hands-off management attitude and is known for taking decisions at amazing speed. This speed to market has also been a factor for clients to not look beyond SmartData, apart from other efficiency factors.
