Let’s learn more about the company and its upcoming plans, we got to know; during an interaction with Mr. Aman Jain Director – Sales at TechnoBind.
How do you see the current market scenario for distribution business in India? What is your GTM strategy?
The Indian IT distribution market has grown rapidly in the last decade and has gone through a massive transition. The ongoing pandemic has proven instrumental in boosting the growth of the tech industry. It has undoubtedly magnified the demand for technology.
The shift to working from home has also given the tech industry a significant boost. With IT becoming the backbone, and the market becoming more competitive than ever, the dependency on technology has been growing. Hence, as we accelerate our steps into digital transformation, the adoption of cutting-edge technology will increase. In such a scenario, the IT distribution business in India has also experienced enormous transformation and has become more mature than before.
The competition in the distribution business has also risen exponentially due to emerging opportunities and increasing market size. But the companies that have well-planned GTM strategies are doing extremely well.
Our GTM strategy is to solve the business pain point of customers by providing solutions that are well suited for today’s needs, and thereby we train and enable our channel partners to know more on these solutions and present the use cases to the customers which are relevant.
We act as a conduit for our vendors who look forward to expanding their landscape with us in the market and we thereby become their extended arms in the market to make their products and solutions reach out, and we act as consultants to our channel partners who come to us for seeking help to solve the IT challenges of their customers.

We are committed to providing superior support for every product, solution, and service we take to the market.

We are proactively reaching out to our customers and suggesting changes in their current solutions at a place to handle the current challenges and also making sure the solutions are meeting their requirements with minimal manual oversight.
Any message to business partners and your roadmap as a whole for the next year?
The IT industry is changing, and traditional ways of selling will not go too far. With the Digital Transformation happening, adoption of the Cloud increasing rapidly in the ongoing Pandemic, customers looking at options on multiple cloud options, need partners who can act as consultants for their overall infrastructure rather than looking at someone selling point solutions. The more quickly partners will adapt to this change, the more they will be successful.
Our Roadmap is very clear, we need to be known as Distributors who provide compelling solutions and Technologies which solve the pain point of the customers in the changing environment today through our partner model that we have built and carved over the years. Our solutions today are the need of the hour and solve most of the problems that arise on the front of Data and we would continue to add more and more to that front.
