30 Fastest Growing Companies to watch 2019
The logistics environment is constantly evolving. To face the operational challenges head-on, there should be state of the art software that makes user’s life easy. But most of the software available in the market today require the end-user to follow clunky processes and has poorly designed user interfaces.
With simplicity as Infolog’s core focus, they crafted the Infolog Logistics Suite software. Simplified workflows and easy-to-use user interfaces ensure better productivity. Having a global footprint has helped the company understand various cultures and business environments, which is reflected in their service.
How did it all start?
In 2013 a team of specialized veterans with more than 15 years of accumulated experience joined hands and founded Infolog. Their intention was to cover a wide range of end-to-end Supply Chain needs. Headquartered in Singapore, the company has branch offices located in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, & Vietnam.
Today, the company has become a global software provider, servicing over 90 customers with 160 sites in 8 countries.
Leading a multi-national business
Entrepreneurship is the driving force behind creating and growing new businesses. Yet, entrepreneurs are also the people holding themselves back. One can’t expect to grow a business with the same skill-set that one acquired while launching a business, therefore an entrepreneur must remain a student and continue to acquire necessary skills that are needed along the journey from someone who is leading growth.
It is common practice for CEOs to dive into mundane day-day activities of the organization and micromanage everything. Sometimes, growing the business is about letting go of a few tabs and prioritizing more important tasks at hand.
“To grow our business, we need to learn to delegate properly, trusting our management team and giving up day-to-day control of every detail at different stages. It’s all too easy to stifle creativity and motivation with excessive interference. As the business becomes more complex and more demanding, we also need to improve our time management skills and learn to focus on what’s really important for our business.” - Richard Goh, CEO of Infolog
Secret behind the rapid growth
Shareholders must align with the company’s goals to have smooth functioning, and stimulate growth. The company has a unanimous voice about each branch’s roles and responsibilities, work-life balance, project issues, etc.
