Veda Informatics, a fast-growing internet visibility optimization company, has launched www.open-source-developers.com, offering website development services focused on the needs of individuals and small businesses. Start-ups and small businesses are typically tight on funds, but cannot forgo having a web presence.
Open source platforms are ideal for such start-ups, as they give developers the flexibility to use software that is free, reliable and can be customized for high-end applications without any license issues. However, what makes this technology daunting for small organizations and start-ups is the fact that open source technologies are by and large decentralized and usually need technical assistance to ensure that they yield the right results.
According to DP Information – ACE Start-up Enterprise Survey (STEPS) released in March 2009, the top two challenges faced by entrepreneurs are raising capital and manpower issues. The report added that 90% of the start-ups have recorded a slowdown in sales due to the economic downturn. Against this backdrop, it has become even more crucial for companies to target a larger market, while keeping the reins on expenses. This is possible only by establishing an online presence through open source.
Harish Agrawal, the man behind the launch of open-source-developers.com, said, “The global downturn has been particularly rough for start-ups. Open source technologies represent low cost solutions, while offering the flexibility and customization demanded by entrepreneurs today. We understand the challenges faced by start-ups and small businesses and can recommend the platform that best suits their needs and business model.”
Veda Informatics has been providing a gamut of activities to help its clients enhance their online presence. The company has clients across the US, Europe and Australia. The services encompass website design, website development, content creation and internet marketing.
