Krawler Inc. (Deskera)

Company: Krawler Inc. (Deskera)
Tech Sector: Software
Key Product: Deskera

The Lowdown: One problem with many Software-as-a-Service applications is that integrating multiple on-demand applications to exchange data can be a chore. That’s an advantage of on-demand software suites, including Krawler’s Deskera, which targets small and midsize businesses with between five and 100 employees.

’That’s our secret sauce,’ said founder and CEO Shashank Dixit of the integration between the CRM, accounting, project management, human resource management, training, leave and attendance management, and other applications that make up the Deskera suite.

Krawler, founded in 2006, is based in Pune, India, and is well-established there and throughout other Asian countries such as Singapore and Malaysia. (The company was ranked No. 52 on the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific.) In the U.S., it is based in Sunnyvale, Calif.

Now the company is pushing to expand its U.S. sales -- some 90 percent of new Deskera customers are in North America -- and it’s counting on solution provider partners to help, Dixit said. Channel partners can white-label the on-demand applications with their own brand (Krawler handles the hosting) and sell them to customers in vertical markets, along with implementation and consulting services.

Worldwide the company now has some 200 channel partners and is working to expand its partner ranks in the U.S.
