Infiniti Software specialises in travel and revenue management technology and aims to be a leading global tech player in the field in five years
Mr. Ananth Narasimhan quit a high-paying job to start company Infiniti Software Solutions in 2005. But just when he managed to attract clients and funds, the economy crashed and he found himself at zero again. He didn't let that deter him and has rebuilt his company into one of the most promising global travel technology players. Narasimhan's vission has changed the way business travel works. "Most airline companies were created when computers were using mainframe technology . While every other industry from the 1960s and '70s was upgraded, travel companies didn't get the right solutions. Airlines were booming but the technology that drove sales remained static. We decided to change that," says Narasimhan.
With his background in consulting, Narasimhan knew the requirements and started working with Jet Airways. "Supply had increased by 30% but demand did not, resulting in unsold seats. We came up with a new concept that allowed airlines to sell unsold seats in real time.That is how our product was launched in 2007," he says. Read more
