The company has a brand-new board, who have a fresh perspective of the business of the company, they are conducting a thorough review of the business model, strategies and practices of the company which will surely place the company in a better position than it was before.
The most bankable feature of the company is that it has been able to diversify its business into multiple high volume geographies across the world, which would give the new management enough leverage to successfully implement any strategy that it deems necessary to spur growth for the company. The board along with the new auditors of the company PKF Littlejohn is also conducting a thorough review of the practices being followed by the company, with appropriate policies and procedures which will provide impetus to the future growth of the company.
There are a number of contemporary companies in the field of mobile app-based solutions and other deliverable which are doing relatively well. The company stands a good chance to perform well should it offer such value-added solutions to its portfolio of offerings.
The strategic review though, has come late but will surely put the company in the right path and will place the company alongside its contemporaries, in the rapidly expanding sector of the mobile app-based service industry. The company’s recent announcement that it was signing a deal with Artificial Intelligence services providing firm Krunch.ai is a step in the right direction; the company will not only help the new management thoroughly analyse strengths and shortcomings of its current products and services but will also help it finetune its operations to make it ready for any future value-creating impetus envisaged by the new management of the company and its implementation.
