We may not have a magic wand but we surely have a magic Band.
Criticalys was started by 2 visionary ladies in Dec 2013 with a view to provide simplified solutions to the customers while absorbing the complexity of technology as an enabler behind the scenes.
Criticalys might have taken birth recently but the leadership who founded and running it, is very experienced and passionate. Carries a very innovative Vision and the skills for true translation of it into productive Products and Services.
The team comprises of people from premier Colleges like IIT, NIT and who are alumni of organizations like GE, Microsoft, Cognizant, Panasonic et al.
We want to create exponential value for all stakeholders by following basic and fundamental principles of providing a solution without looking for short cuts. We do not celebrate mediocrity. It is a humble statement. If we celebrated mediocrity we would be satisfied too quickly for even small achievements and couldnt think beyond to produce quality. We do not glorify any technology. We look at it as an enabler with focus always on the customer and his need!
Criticalys is a VMedu, a global accreditor and training company partner

Giving back is not a marketing tool for us. It is a personal, organizational and business obligation that we sincerely feel to reciprocate and give back to the communities which enabled us, directly or indirectly and to make our achievement more fulfilling and complete. A part of our earnings always goes to charity work of various kinds. We would not like to display it but would love to share with our customers if they want to know.
