Yes, it is Christmas season – a festival of happiness, love and peace. And Team AgilizTech was no exception in celebrating this wonderful festival with great pomp and joy on Friday, 21st December.
Christmas weaves its magic at AgilizTech
Organized and hosted by the AgilizTech Fun Committee, the day was made very colorful and joyous by decorating the workplace with a beautiful Christmas tree with gifts beneath, colorful balloons, and wreathes with bright decorative bulbs.
The entire team was divided into two to play some fun-filled games which reminded us our childhood. The winning team was rewarded with delicious chocolates.
Secret Santa Time
What is Christmas without a fun game of Secret Santa? Everyone at AgilizTech indulged in a gifting spree by being Secret Santas. It was a gleeful exchange of presents under the Christmas tree that united the team as a family and brought us all closer.
A Christmas celebration is incomplete without a cake, and we were all eager to devour the delectable cake.
May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you all through the Year. AgilizTech wishes you all a very happy and joyous Christmas and New Year.
It is that time of the year again where houses are decked with lights, the smell of delectable sweets and savories is in the air, and joy and festive spirit is in the hearts of everyone. Yes, it is Diwali time.
AgilizTech celebrates the victory of hope over despair and good over evil every year with great gusto, and 2018 was no exception. The team had a gala time indulging in festivities on Friday, 02 November.
AgilizTech celebrates Diwali
Hosted by the AgilizTech Fun Committee, Diwali 2018 witnessed the team participating in the festivities by decorating the workplace. A beautiful traditional rangoli was drawn at the foyer, welcoming everyone cheerfully with its bright colors. A special dress code had been announced for the team with prizes for the best dressed.
The first event of the day was the team reminiscing their favorite Diwali moments. Mr Ganesh, MD & CEO, spoke about how Diwali meant new clothes, the exciting thiruvizha (village fair), the thrill of bursting crackers and delicious sweets made at home. Other team members also spoke about what Diwali signifies for them and how they celebrated the event with their families over the years.
Dressed to win !
Not just the office, even the employees were decked in their finest traditional attire keeping in line with the dress code, with the competition of the best dressed won by Dinesh and Rajesekaran among the gentlemen and Pooja, Nikitha and Ramyashree amongst the ladies.
Celebrating with sweets
The event ended with Mr Ganesh distributing sweets among the team, along with exchanging greetings and good wishes.
AgilizTech wishes everyone a very happy and prosperous Diwali!
Does it mean freedom from coercion and slavery? The right to be free of all bonds and chains?
For VIR India, it is a privilege. A privilege that we are able to afford today because of the valiant efforts of freedom fighters 71 years ago, and the bravery displayed by our very own armed forces every single day. VIR India is a client of AgilizTech, an organization commenced with the aim of serving those who serve the nation. AgilizTech, on the occasion of the 72nd Indian Independence Day had organized a Fireside Chat with the team to talk about freedom, independence and their laudable initiative for the Indian Army.
The Fireside Chat
The VIR India team, consisting of Mr. MC Ram Mohan – Founder, Mrs. Aparna Goenka – Vice President, and Ms. Tharuni Priyadarshini – Director, visited our premises for an interactive session with the AgilizTech team. They explained how VIR India was founded in 2015 with the intent of giving back to the Armed and Paramilitary Forces, the respect they deserve. They do this by providing the armed forces community with the VIR Honour Membership, which enables them to avail exclusive offers and discounts on household articles, groceries, electronic gadgets and more at select partner retail outlets, and online platforms.
In the long run they plan to provide additional services such as banking (enabling the beneficiaries to easily apply and obtain credit cards), insurance (for vehicle, home and medical needs), education (for children of fallen comrades), and placement services (upskilling and re-skilling facilities to help them maximize their potential and have a stable income), among others. VIR India also plans to tie up with corporates to take this up as a CSR activity and widen their reach.
VIR India Team
We also had a Q&A session wherein the audience could pose questions and learn more about VIR India. One of the questions posed was an instance of customer delight wherein an army person had benefited from using the VIR India services. Ms Aparna Goenka told us of one of the orders by an army officer stationed in Kashmir who wanted to send flowers to his mother living down south. He used the VIR India services for that and expressed his happiness at being able to be there for her, even while he was serving his country. That was a special moment for the team, as it showed the power of this initiative.
Another question raised was on how VIR India will cater to the needs of those member families who are not digitally savvy and can’t use the mobile and web apps. Ms Aparna and Mr Ram Mohan explained that these days Jawans are more adept at using technology and hence can easily use the VIR India platform to fulfill their family’s needs. Since a section of society is still not well versed with tech, they plan to open call centers where users can call and communicate their needs. They started with the apps first and are slowly looking out for other avenues to reach a wider audience.
The interactive session helped us to understand how users were being benefited and also their roadmap to reach a wider audience in the future.
VIR India – A movement
VIR India is not just a venture, it is a movement aimed to honor, respect and give back to those who lay down their lives for the nation. We, as civilians, are bound to help these brave souls securely and easily integrate back with the society once their service term ends. We can do this by sharing the inspirational work being done by VIR India, and ensure that this initiative is spread virally for maximum exposure.
Let’s support this movement and make sure that the VIRs are made aware of this initiative and are able to reap its benefits.
The recent floods in Kerala have caused widespread devastation, with hundreds of people missing and thousands displaced. As an organization that strongly believes in one’s responsibility to the society, AgilizTech decided to help those in need by contributing to the Kerala flood relief measures.
AgilizTech raised funds for this cause, to which employees also contributed. These funds were used to buy medicines, food items such as biscuits, rusks, ready-to-eat foods, and other essentials and toiletries such as toothpaste, brush and soaps. The relief material was collected, packed and dispatched last week by our staff to their contact in Kerala.
We hope more and more people step forward to help the disaster struck state and help the affected overcome their distress. Every little bit helps!
Special thanks to our employees – Karan, Balveer and Thomas for assisting with the collection and dispatch and spearheading the Kerala Flood Relief initiative on behalf of the entire team.
We are elated to announce that AgilizTech completed three years of its journey on June 10, 2018. What started as a small aspiration of Mr. Ganesh Babu (MD and CEO of AgilizTech) has taken flight as an upcoming company in the IT services arena. To mark this important milestone, on June 09, 2018, the AgilizTech family congregated at Golden Palms Resort, Bangalore for a day of cheer and celebrations.
It was a cloudy Saturday when we assembled at Golden Palms resort. Set amidst lush greenery, the sights instantly refreshed us from the daily hustle and bustle of the city, and the glowing screens of our laptops. It was with this refreshed mindset and a jolly festive mood that the AgilizTech extended family (the team and their family members) gathered for the celebrations.
Hosted by Ms. Meghana Manjunath and Mr. Surya Saravana Kumar, the day started on a traditional note with a lamp lighting ceremony in which the guests participated.
Guests participating in lamp lighting ceremony
Mr. Anand Gangoor, Head – Service Delivery at AgilizTech, welcomed the gathering and introduced the chief guest for the day, Mrs. Arundhati Rao, Director at DXC technology, an industry stalwart and motivational speaker, and the other dignitaries – Mr. Alakappan Sreenivasan and Mrs. Deivanai Alakappan Sreenivasan, Mr. Koilraj Jeyasingh (Solution Architect at TCS) and Mrs. Vijaya Bharathi Ganesh.
The event proceeded, with the organization updates provided by Mr. Ganesh Babu, Mr. Sujeeth Shetty (VP – Sales and Marketing at AgilizTech), Mr. Anand Gangoor (Senior Technical Delivery Manager) and Mr. Karan Singh (Senior Project Manager).
Mr. Ganesh providing company updates
The speakers touched upon the past year’s performance, projects delivered, new customer acquisitions, new product rollouts and employee performance.
While Mr. Ganesh took us for a stroll down the memory lane and made us familiar with the current company position, and the roadmap, he also gave us the mantra for the year – 3Cs.
Technical, Processes & Customer Focus
Aiming to strengthen our technical skillsets, streamlining process and having a razor-sharp focus on customer experience.
Developing innovative solutions using the latest technologies, and reducing repetition and redundancy with a smarter, more productive way of working.
With existing Customers, New Customers & New Products
Improve service delivery and enhance customer experience thereby gaining recurring customers.
Mr. Sujeeth spoke on the importance of upskilling ourselves to serve customers better and take up more challenging opportunities. Mr. Anand elaborated on the service delivery practice at AgilizTech, bottlenecks and solutions, and Mr. Karan showcased the goodwill enjoyed by AgilizTech among current employees as well as aspirants using Glassdoor statistics.
What TAKE stands for…
Next, the chief guest Mrs. Arundhati Rao was called on stage to present her keynote, which was short yet impactful.
Mrs. Rao explained how we should apply the TAKE formula in our professional and personal lives to be successful. According to Mrs. Rao TAKE stands for:
T – ‘T’echnology
Wherein we ought to look at technology as a means to achieve ends. Technology is the great enabler that solves business problems. So, focus on how to end the customer problem, and then pick up a technology that suits the situation.
A – ‘A’spire
Often, people look at jobs as nine to five’s that pay the bills and keep us occupied. Mrs. Rao urged us to seek more from life by aspiring for higher goals. She stressed upon the point of building careers over holding jobs.
In order to aspire and grow, individuals need to acquire and polish skills. In a fast-changing world, where a new technology emerges every other day, it is important to stay updated. While staying put makes one complacent, staying relevant to the industry helps one tap into new opportunities.
E – ‘E’mpower
Mrs. Rao explained that we must all empower ourselves by showing initiative and helming responsibilities even when it is not expected of us. We must not just do a job, we must own it.
It was a very inspiring 45-mins speech that motivated us all to be better employees and individuals. We are sure that these nuggets of wisdom from such experienced professionals would help us move ahead in our careers and lives.
Awards galore at the AgilizTech Third Anniversary celebrations
To recognize the contributions of the employees over the years, AgilizTech presented awards and certificates. The awards were handed over by the guests – Mrs. Arundhati Rao, Mr. Alakappan Sreenivasan and Mrs. Deivanai, Mr. Koilraj Jeyasingh, Mr. Ganesh Babu and his wife Mrs. Vijaya Bharathi.

Dubsmash – A smash hit among the AgilizTech Team
The Dubsmash craze has swept the whole world and we Agilians aren’t immune either. The AgilizTech Fun Committee had asked the entire team to create dubsmashes and submit. It was quite a new way for everybody to let their hair down and get out of comfort zones. The result was a compilation of downright hilarious videos in a mélange of languages – Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and more. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the videos almost as much as the team did when creating them.
Apart from dubsmash, AgilizTech Fun Committee had also asked the team to create videos expressing their thoughts on AgilizTech’s third anniversary. What resulted was a beautiful compilation of videos where employees conveyed their heartfelt wishes towards the continued success of AgilizTech.
Here’s the video.
Cut the Cake!
No anniversary celebration is ever complete without a cake cutting ceremony. And we are not ones to be left behind. We had a beautiful 3Kg White Forest delicacy for the AgilizTech third anniversary celebrations, and the whole team participated in the cake cutting.
Cut the cake!
Fun in the sun
With that the formal event came to an end and the AgilizTech family was free to enjoy lunch and the splendors of the Golden Palms Resort. The swimming pool was a major attraction as a lot of employees chilled in the blue waters. Later the team moved on to the cricket ground for some friendly matches, wherein individuals showcased their cricketing prowess.
The AgilizTech third anniversary was a day of merriment, motivation and celebration for the entire AgilizTech family. Three years is a very important milestone in our journey, and we will strive to work harder as there are many more miles to go and many, many more summits to climb. We also take this opportunity to thank all our customers, partners and well-wishers who have stood with us throughout this period and provided encouragement and support.
More and more students are opting for internships while pursuing higher education these days. This is because an internship gives them a glimpse of the corporate world and serves as their career’s launchpad into the industry. Every year, AgilizTech invites students to join our internship programme and gain real-life experiences. This year, we were pleased to have Ms. P. Jerlin Juliet and Ms. G.R. Yogalakshmi from Madurai’s famed American College for an internship at AgilizTech.
Jerlin and Yogalakshmi, the third year MCA students who were interested in interning with us, came all the way from Madurai, Tamil Nadu, and quickly adapted to the fast-moving culture of Bengaluru and AgilizTech in December 2017. Over the course of 4 months they worked in various projects for AgilizTech – both internal and for clients.
In their words, “This has been a very fruitful experience for us, as we were able to apply our knowledge and work on live projects. We’re thankful to AgilizTech for providing us this opportunity.”
At the end of the internship period, AgilizTech provided them the internship certificate and as a token of appreciation of their hard work, gift cards. We would love to collaborate with more students for our projects, as this program helps us build a connect with the student community and enables them gain foothold in the industry.
Yesterday was Ugadi, a day that ushered in the new year in Karnataka, India. The new year is a sign of new beginnings, and refreshed minds. And on this positive note of good tidings, we are excited to announce that we’ve moved into a new office within Bangalore, from Koramangala to Jayanagar.
On the move
Our old office served us well and it is where we built great memories over the past two years. However, being a growing company, we had to shift to a new working space in JP Nagar – a new place to capture new memories.
Our new address is:
AgilizTech Software Services Pvt. Ltd.
No. 07/3, Second Floor, 18th Main Road, Jayanagar 9th Block, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560041
It has been an exciting two years for AgilizTech, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history. Do drop by sometime for a friendly chat and a steaming mug of coffee!
The reception area was decked with a bejeweled 4-feet tree, with gifts adorning the base. The office floor was rife with excitement, with people opening gifts from their Secret Santas. Yes, the Christmas magic had descended on AgilizTech on 22nd Dec 2017. The Fun Committee had strived to create a fun-filled experience for all the employees. They had announced a dress code for the Christmas 2017 Celebrations at AgilizTech – outfits with green, white and red colors, which added festive colors in the work atmosphere.
AgilizTech played Secret Santa this year, and boy was it fun! The desks had exploded with glittery wrapping papers and colorful ribbons, with the employees gleefully opening gifts, and guessing who their Santa might be.
Apart from adding vibrant colors, the Fun Committee also conducted amusing games that had the employees in splits – a spin of ‘pin the tail’ was conducted, where the player had to paint a tail on the elephant while blindfolded. There were other team games as well, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. The winners got to take home sweetmeats and goodies, along with bragging rights until the next year.
What is a Christmas celebration without a rich and delicious plum cake? And the joy doubled when one of our kind-hearted employees brought a scrumptious home-made cake as well!
An evening of fun, festivities and excitement, the Christmas 2017 celebrations at AgilizTech was a grand success.
The AgilizTech family wishes you and your loves ones a very happy Christmas and a joyous new year!
AgilizTech celebrated Diwali, one of the largest and brightest festivals of India, with great gusto on 17th October 2017.
17th had been declared as ethnic day so everyone was sporting colorful Indian wear on the day.
It was a refreshing change for everybody to dress up for the festival and click snaps with their friends and colleagues. The office was decked up as well, with balloons and streamers adorning the walls and adding festive cheer.
The talented ladies at office decided to brighten up the reception area by creating a spectacular rangoli and placing diyas around it.
Company update and celebrations
In the afternoon, Mr Ganesh Babu – MD and CEO of AgilizTech provided the company updates, detailing the business growth in the past 60 days and the new customers acquired during the period. He also spoke about and gave a demo on www.alisha.ai , the chatbot the company is developing.
After the session, the Fun Committee took over to conduct activities and games. Soon the office was filled with laughter as the AgilizTech Cricket Championship was announced and player auction was conducted in a hilarious manner. The match between the Richy Rhinos and Gowty Tigers (League teams) was scheduled to be held on Oct 31, 2017 (the day the official team outing is on).
Post this, various fun games were hosted, such as bursting balloon with darts, throwing/blowing balls into cups, etc., in which all employees actively participated and rejoiced.
In the evening, the team moved to the local ground where they burst firecrackers to celebrate the festival of lights. It was a fitting finale to a day of joyful celebrations, as the firework colors painted the night sky in bright colors of yellow, red and green.
AgilizTech wishes everyone a joyful and prosperous Diwali.
Internships is one of the key things that differentiate a fresher’s resume from a hundred others. More and more students are realizing this and taking the initiative to engage in productive, experiential internships while pursuing graduation. This summer, we had four promising interns from the coastal haven of Karnataka, Mangalore. Akshay, Alok, Ananthu and Arjun, the third-year students from NMAM Institute of Technology, Mangalore, joined our 40-day program of summer internship at AgilizTech.
About the project
Adapting to startup culture
While AgilizTech by itself has a very cheerful work atmosphere, the interns certainly added their charm. They took the initial ice-breaking session of stand-up performance in their stride, with one of the interns even mimicking the seniors! Balancing their playful nature with their dedication and commitment, they adapted themselves to AgilizTech’s lively startup culture – even burning midnight oil to meet the project deadlines.
The interns at AgilizTech Second Anniversary Party
The journey – from amateurs to professionals
As Shyamraj says, “When they first came in, they were unaware of coding standards and best practices. But they were eager to learn. They were like fresh clay, ready to absorb knowledge and mold themselves into better coders. We had a running joke, in fact – whenever I asked them if a module was ready they always said, “Yes sir, it is done.” But upon checking in, the code would immediately break. But once they could see the UI shape up, see their code come to life, they were motivated to learn more.” He sums it up by saying that the internship was their journey, a transformation from amateur coders to professional software developers.
In the words of the interns, “We gained a great deal of office experience working with the project team and got an insight into project development. It was an amazing experience and we thank everyone who helped us during our internship.”
At the end of the internship period, AgilizTech provided the internship experience certificates and as a small token of appreciation for their contribution, HDFC Gift Cards, while wishing them fruitful careers.
These were the second batch of interns to have worked at AgilizTech and we would love to collaborate with more students for our projects, as this program helps us build a connect with the student community and enables them gain foothold in the industry.
