TRUE Assistive Technology

From gaining business inputs from NSRCEL and technical feedback from the automotive market leader in India, Maruti Suzuki, they gained all-round development on their product, with sessions on presentations skills, OKRs, Marketing, Sales, Operations, etc. All the sessions offered were well curated and thought-provoking.

eShipz

As a startup generally we get opportunity to work in a small environment where we test our ideas but with NSRCEL and Maruti Suzuki when we got an opportunity to visit Maruti’s warehouse where we experienced the large movement of parcels generally we don’t see and later we were able to test our ideas into the large environment and then roll out the solution.

Maruti Suzuki’s exposure helped us understand how to scale up the existing solution to a larger corporation.
