“There was no Plan B,” Mahesh Yadav admits about starting his IT Consulting firm one week before the 9/11 attacks in 2001. “It was unexpected, obviously, so we buckled down, fine tuned our business plan and took that leap of faith.”
More than 14 years later, Optima Global Solutions is still leaping forward, twice earning honors among Inc. Magazine‘s “Fastest Growing Companies in
America,” along with a 2015 ranking by NJ Biz as one of he “50 Fastest Growing” in New Jersey. Their secret? “Leveraging emerging technologies and trends,” says Yadav. “We’re always staying ahead of the curve to deliver innovative solutions.”
In fact, it’s not a “secret,” as a wide range of businesses nationwide — including industry leaders, middle market enterprises and high-growth start-ups — now rely on the Lawrenceville company to stay ahead of their competition. Combining its engineering and technical strengths with creativity has helped Optima dramatically improve the bottom line for their expanding list of clients.
“Whether they need Smart Process Applications that streamline accounts payable or help tackling complex problems in the mobile domain, our focus is to solve their most complex problems effectively and cost-efficiently. By taking the time to understand each business and their unique environments, we create customized solutions one customer at a time.”
Using Smart Process Applications (SPAs), Optima combines intelligent information capture, business process management (BPM), dynamic case management, collaboration, mobility, and analytics to increase responsiveness and improve service levels while greatly reducing operating costs.
CASE STUDY AT A GLANCE:
To facilitate growth, a leading ambulatory surgery center company needed to eliminate their manual process for paying invoices and improve visibility into their financial performance. Using transcendAP, Optima’s SPA for Accounts Payable, invoices are captured from over 60 locations, data is extracted automatically and rules are established to control the approval and exception process. Executives gained the visibility they required to grow their business, and have successfully automated tasks for over three years, currently processing over 10,000 invoices per month.
Yadav notes that finding top talent is a challenge for any business, especially quality technical resources. “Our highly experienced recruiting team specializes in identifying the right candidates for each job in the most practical, responsive and cost effective way.”
Optima also offers a Contract-To-Hire staffing option, backed with a performance guarantee on each consultant. “We strive to be a one-stop resource for all the IT needs of our clients, including private sector businesses as well as Federal and State Government agencies.”
Tapping into valuable resources is also why Optima has relied on the Small Business Development Center at the College of New Jersey. Originally introduced by SBDC consultant Sushma Jain through the center’s Asian Indian Outreach program, Yadev was pleased to learn his company was entitled to a broad choice of business services at no cost. “From networking opportunities and making connections, to speaker events and advice on specific industry issues, they’ve definitely helped us along the way.”
He believes 2016 will be even more promising. For a company with “Global” as its middle name, there may be no limits in their future.
