Driving training program to enable SMEs and youth on Cloud ERP technology and granting them free licenses

Deskera, a  software provider in the Asia Pacific region, launched a skill development program on Cloud ERP technology for Indian SMEs and students from educational institutions to enhance their technological expertise and help them thrive.

As part of the program, the SMEs and university students were given hands-on training on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), one of the most sought business software in the market. After the completion of the practical sessions. the organization granted free licenses to these enterprises, while the students would be learning a new skill set to add to their professional profile.

This initiative addresses a critical need in India where SMEs have very low productivity due to their low scale and poor adoption of technology. At 48 million, India has the second largest number of SMEs in the world after China, and only a small percentage are exploring technology to become efficient.

“We have been working sincerely to fulfill the needs of the SME segment who have exceedingly limited options when it comes to access of software that is affordable, easily deployable and configurable,” said Shashank Dixit, Chief Executive Officer, Deskera.  “With the government’s focus on transforming the nation into ‘Digital India’ and leading campaigns like ‘Skill India’ it is time for us to contribute in our own ways”, he added.

India is set to become the world’s youngest country with 64% of its population in the ‘working age group’ by the end of 2020. It offers India’s growing economy an exceptional edge that global economists believe could add a significant 2% to its GDP growth.

Therefore, to make India the ‘skilled-capital of the world’, it is necessary to provide students a better practical experience, understanding and knowledge of the products that will enable them for job opportunities not just in the country, but also globally.
