Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a manufacturing unit of packaging bags in India with around 500 workers. It is a family-owned company. I'm the chairman. My father manufactures the orders, and I distribute them.


What challenge were you trying to address with Sunflower Lab?

I wanted to make my life easier. Before, I had a hard time remembering to give tasks to my employees and tracking orders, containers, and quotations. We needed seven or eight modules developed.


What was the scope of their involvement?

Sunflower Lab did software development using AWS [Amazon Web Services] as the platform. The software generates automatic quotations. Once I enter a client’s data, it automatically gives them quotations based on whatever they’re using either monthly or every two months. They automatically send data and a price to the client. I don’t know their team size, but I always speak to Yash [Patel, co-founder].

How did you come to work with Sunflower Lab?

My uncle recommended them.

How much have you invested with Sunflower Lab?

I’ve paid $44,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first time I started with them was in October/November 2016. It is still ongoing since I want to add more modules. If everything goes right at the end of the year, I want them to visit my factory in India. We are planning to develop something to make my life easier in the manufacturing unit. Right now, they are only helping with the distribution, which is in New Jersey.

Results & Feedback

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

So far, I’m satisfied with Sunflower Lab’s work. If an issue comes up, I can call them at any time, and it’s resolved within 24 hours. I think I can replace two employees because of the software. This year, I had to pay them more, but after one or two years, I’m going to start saving money because I won’t have to pay for two more employees.

How did Sunflower Lab perform from a project management standpoint?

There’s one person from their technical team who I can call at any time if I need anything (and vice versa).

What did you find most impressive about Sunflower Lab?

I’m not a technical person. All I know is my specialty of marketing and product development. Although they’re developing the software, if I need help with something else besides the project, they are always happy to help me.

Are there any areas Sunflower Lab could improve?

Maybe in the future, I will have some suggestion for improvement, but I don't feel there's anything they could improve right now.
