Currently, we have about 200+ Members in ASIRT from the MMR region. Our immediate objective is to help partners revive their businesses from the downturn caused due to lockdown. We are helping the partners to coordinate, link up and help each other to improve their businesses in mutually beneficial ways. In the long-term perspective, we want to improve the reach of ASIRT so that the Members can get the maximum benefit of their services and solutions and work more efficiently. We are using both digital and traditional methods to achieve this purpose.
Creating Consortium Teams of 30 to 35 members each has helped enhance collaboration amongst members thus improving the businesses and extending business reach.
We are also aligned with other IT Associations and join hands to provide the SI communities a level playing business environment and trade practices.
