The millennium year 2000 saw dot-com bubble bust. Several companies either shut down their operations or were acquired by their competitors. When the world IT industry was chasing the Y2K deals, around the same time Devendra Deshmukh and four of his friends who just got their degree in engineering launched their own IT Services company e-Zest Solutions. It all started when Deshmukh and his friends, who shared a passion for technology, wanted to do something of their own when they got moved by a book named ‘The Creation of wealth - The Tatas from the 19th to 21st century’ by R M Lala.

e-Zest saw the light of the day in a 12x8 office in Bandra, Mumbai when the friends launched a customer focused and technology-driven company providing product engineering and enterprise software/application development services that help clients in crafting holistic value for their software development efforts. With an uncertain growth, the friends stepped in the shoes of sales representatives and travelled extensively to build relationships with new clients which worthily rewarded the company in the long run.

The company focuses on understanding its clients’ needs and delivers IT services and solutions at right value and required speed. “We bagged one of our first projects from Israel in our first year of inception. The project was with regards to voice recognition. We bagged the project and realized that developing world class products is our passion rather than marketing. This project gave us the push and installed confidence in us,” explains Amol Pande, Director & Founder, e-Zest.
