Sahaj Software Solutions: A Simple Agile Model to Solve Complex Problems

Akash Agrawal, Co-Founder & CEO

Over the last few years, agile methodologies have been gaining prominence in the IT industry, owing to the need for flexibility in responding to customer needs. However, mastering agile to develop custom software that not only meets the current needs but is also scalable is not a cakewalk since most organizations lack the knowledge and experience required to implement agile. This is where Sahaj Software Solutions steps in. A Bay Area-based IT services firm, Sahaj employs its time-tested, simple agile methodology—the Sahaj agile model—to provide high-quality solutions in shorter project cycles. Akash Agrawal, the company’s co-founder and CEO, informs, “Today’s IT is all about being agile and outcome-driven, and clients look for simple solutions that drive results.” Sahaj fulfills this need with a simple yet innovative software delivery approach that solves the most complex technological problems. “This simple agile model allows us to condense the entire development process into a short cycle, which not only reduces process wastage by more than 50 percent but also helps achieve faster time to market.”

In any typical software company, the initial phase of conceptualizing and designing a solution takes around 3-4 weeks, but Sahaj does it in merely three days. “We first try to understand the client’s requirements and, accordingly, utilize our agile model to develop a minimum viable product (MVP). Then, the MVP is ready to be launched in the marketplace in less than 12 weeks,” explains Agrawal. Contrary to other traditional software delivery models, the Sahaj agile model is more collaborative as it significantly engages clients who also have significant ownership in the project. While working with clients, Sahaj’s experienced consultants play varied roles—such as that of a business analyst, project manager, or delivery manager—as and when needed. “We are a very disruptive and innovative company, and we have achieved this through our culture of openness, honesty, and a suitable approach to figuring out what is right for clients,” says Agrawal.
Today, this atypical culture at Sahaj enables it to design and deliver simple yet high-quality, out-of-the-box solutions at an unbelievable pace. Another factor that truly sets Sahaj apart is that they are domain agnostic, which not only enables the company to work with clients across different geographies and verticals but also provides a wider perspective of complex problems in the IT landscape. In one instance, a prominent startup in the education space known as EkStep Foundation was looking for a partner to help them build an open, collaborative learning platform—a personalized, scalable solution—that could be used to teach children from all backgrounds. The client wanted the platform to be designed in such a way that only a limited group of people could have complete control of it. Sahaj successfully met the startup’s needs and provided them with a solution that surpassed their expectations.

Since its inception in 2016, Sahaj has created a unique niche for itself in the IT landscape and has been at the forefront of designing and implementing software solutions. Moving forward, the firm will continue to redefine the way software is being developed, creating newer and faster ways of delivering projects. Sahaj is also planning to expand its global presence by setting up new offices in the next few years.
