As ERP is ubiquitously accepted as the heart of any organization, the idea of adopting an efficient ERP resonates with many enterprises now a days. Unfortunately, most of the features in such resourceful softwares fail to see the light of the day due to lack of proficient consultants who have a true grasp of the fundamentals of business functions in a specific industry to implement that software. Unfurling the utmost potential of Microsoft Dynamics business solutions with constant innovations in BI sector to endow clients with perennial benefits is Levtech Consulting.

Having on-boarded a select few sought-after industry veterans in the areas of business consulting and project management for enterprise applications, this UAE headquartered company is no novice in deploying vertical-specific comprehensive platforms based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM at competitive price points to SMEs - a huge sector that seeks newer technologies despite recessionary trends. Since all new hires get nurtured by these veterans, every consultant at Levtech is highly-capable of delivering tremendous value while re-engineering customer's business processes during implementation. Further more, this 2009-founded company's experience in catering to over 160 customers across 26 countries permits it to practice best proven methodologies with a global perspective. Never letting its foot off the pedal when it comes to delivering projects on-time has facilitated Levtech to achieve an astounding 95 percent customer retention rate. Levtech recently bagged a very impressive 12th position in the elite Dubai SME100 list of companies, besides being feted as the Microsoft Reseller of the year for the MENA region.

Cherishing the Creative Impulse

Leveraging its founders' profound Microsoft Consulting expertise to recruit, the company effortlessly attracts and retains top talents by enabling them to explore their abilities via vast exposure into consulting arena and through shifting their career into fast lane via onsite opportunities. The company,
which is into its seventh year of operation, is happy to state that a majority of the initial batch of recruits are still with the company. In fact, 65 percent of its team, who had joined India, have moved to their UAE offices. This niche company always ensures that at least 20 percent of its workforce(associates & trainees) are on bench-training to hone their skill sets by various certification programs, external training courses, internal knowledge sharing workshops to familiarize them with Microsoft Dynamics technologies and implementation methodologies. Though it hires fresh graduates with a flair for consulting, most of its people get sourced through employee referrals to avoid mismatched expectations.

"Having seniors who lead us by example and managers who are motivating in the bleakest of times, we constantly outperform expectations. Working in Levtech has been a knowledge ride in every walk of life, from types of industries to places, from challenging assignments to absolute blissful merry making," says an excited Akash Das, a team member working with Levtech.

Best Place to Start Your Career

The company that deploys exceptional candidates on projects straightaway circumventing three months of rigorous training, conducts various trainings internally (keeps them abreast with new projects and releases from Microsoft) and externally (chisels their skills of leadership, motivation and informal & global communication). "At Levtech, the right minded can sense there's constant learning - learning across domain, consulting and application know-how with a key focus on self-development and self-awareness with respect to an individual's key traits. The emphasis is always on chasing excellence," says Kaushik Mahadevan, Director - India Operations, Levtech.

Unconventional Work Milieu

Along with its open-door policy, the company that has a high men to women ratio frequently communicates with its people via informal sessions to take feedback regarding managers, half yearly performance review to provide
performance-based trainings and stay interviews. "We strive to provide a high degree of contentment to our team members by handing out gift vouchers for special occasions like birthdays and marriages, compensation for the completion of certificate courses, recognizing people's performance with awards (Employee of the Month, Quarter & Year), rewarding long-servicing people who have crossed certain milestones, giving group insurance policies for immediate family, paying cab fares for late working women and so on. Besides 30 annual leaves, there are additional leaves given for maternity (3 months), paternity (5 days)," says Roopa Rakesh, Manager - HR, Levtech.

Family Involvement = Increased Productivity

Levtech has a lighter moment on the last day of every month, where all employees whose birthday falls in the particular month cut cakes together, have impromptu entertainment sessions. The company celebrates annual day, family day and bring-your-children-to-work day with its people's families and also sponsors movie tickets for family outings. The company plans to involve families more, as this has caused a surge in productivity. Geographical diversion being one of its key growth factors, Levtech will keep adding a new geography every year.

"We are all about empowering our people to deliver quality solutions by continuously Leveraging Technology. Besides motivating our people to be independent, our Line Managers encourage our team to bring in new ideas, which may add value to internal processes or enhancing a customer experience. One can learn, inculcate, flourish, indulge and prosper at a global arena at Levtech Consulting," concludes Kaushik.
