The Roadmap Ahead With An Inhouse Team Of Experts:
During the first 6-8 months of its formation, the main focus of Avanta was to identify and pitch for solution requirements that were required to penetrate this market and to showcase the capabilities of Avanta value add and Innovation of the total solution. The next was, to develop the organization to work with other partners and to give confidence to our customers this is a must at this time of pandemic and fast responses expected by telcos. During the pandemic, we grew by working with freelance Contractors and expanding our service portfolio in to areas which some of the establish players were not able to respond. Such strategies ensued continued and sustainable revenue inflows to the company. As far as the growth is considered I believe that the telecom industry will now move into delivering faster connection like 5G in the country. With the recent approval of number portability, it gives greater flexibility for end users as they don’t need to stick to one service provider, that telcos will now have to compete on service aspects and value additions to secure loyalty and continued engagement with any single user,” says Damitha. it is expected the growth of the industry to be phenomenal as seen from the recent trends and Avanta will surely capitalise on these developments in the coming years and ensure success through quality product and service delivery and innovate to stay a head of the game.
