by CXOtoday News Desk    Aug 17, 2016


With the Government set to roll out GST in April 2017, Deskera, a business software provider in Asia Pacific, is quite upbeat and bullish towards the Indian SME market.

The company claimed to be the first cloud-based software provider to offer Goods and Services Tax (GST) ready software suite in India. The company has been working with various Government departments and businesses in Singapore and Malaysia in helping them move to the GST based model in the past and is now bullish on the Indian market.

Shashank Dixit, CEO, Deskera said, “With the Government’s one of the biggest tax reforms in the country, we are looking forward to it. We have been always ready for GST in India since our products are already being used in GST compliant countries like Singapore and Malaysia,” he further added.

“Deskera’s ERP software has always been GST compliant and we have gone through exactly the same scenario when GST was rolled out in Malaysia. We have hands-on experience tweaking our software to different needs of different countries. Deskera has its operations in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, and Ahmedabad, and we understand the Indian laws better. We have been the no. one choice of SMEs in India too. All we need is to fill in the rates, and we are ready to go,”Dixit said.

He added that Deskera Cloud ERP powers more than 3,000 SMEs and businesses globally. At present, it is making valuable contribution to the Indian Market. With its India headquarter in Pune, it helps SMEs migrate to an integrated Cloud-based platform, thus enhancing productivity and moving one more step in the direction of the Government’s  ‘Make in India’ mission.

Deskera products are designed to fulfill the business requirements of a wide range of industries such as manufacturing, trading, distribution, engineering, building and construction. One can access the information on the go by mere use of a web browser and internet connection. He said the software suite is compatible to support all the new requirements.

“The unique feature of Deskera is that it helps in seamless transition and integration of the financial structure from old version to the new one. For instance, if a manufacturing company has its financial data stored in any old financial system of any business software, he need not worry about integration of his accounts, as Deskera will integrate it with the new structure, which is GST compliant and hence help in the smooth shift,” Dixit summed up.
