30 Most Innovative Companies 2018
The business world is constantly expanding and exploring new possibilities. In this vast corporate structure of today, every business- regardless of its size- requires effective IT services and systems to increase their productivity. An expert and professional support team can not only recognize the business challenges, but can also bring the people, seasoned expertise and proven processes to intelligently answer them. Moreover, the immense power of technology plays a very big part to bring about massive changes in an organization.
Amber Bahl founded Cyclotron Inc., in 2015 to bring one such change. Amber felt that the way his previous employers addressed their clients had its inefficiencies. The company was built for agility with a strong determination that no hindrances should slow down any department in an organization. Cyclotron believes that improving the IT platform will improve society as a whole as it contributes to innovation.
â€œIn our opinion, technology services act as the ever-important wiring within an organization â€“ and much of that â€˜wiringâ€™ is grossly outdated,â€ says Amber. With its great pool of talent, the company kick-started with an aim to deliver pure services. Over the past couple of years, it has grown through customer references. In fact, with customer referrals, the popularity of the company has magnified and is driving the main source of the business.
