The SME sector plays an imperative role in the growth of Indian economy by contributing about 45 percent of the total industrial output every year. As these enterprises witness growth, they struggle with tracking of business resources such as cash, raw materials, production capacity and facilitating information flow between business functions. This ultimately leads to contraction of their profit margins and they look towards branded ERP implementers for help. Unfortunately many a times this decision turns out to be the biggest nightmare they later regret for. The capabilities of some well known ERP brands are far from doubt when it comes to catering to the MNCs and large enterprises. But coming to the SME space, these brands largely fail to understand the pulse of the market. Knowing the ground realities well, ITFlux Inc., a California based company started its India Development Centre in Kochi in 2008.

ITFlux Technologies Pvt Ltd. provides ERP Consulting Services that involve evaluating distinct needs of businesses and helping them achieve maximum business output at most reliable costs.
