After 10 years in business, eBiz Solutions is looking to raise its profile in Memphis.
The company, which provides a variety of technology consulting services from design and development to aiding companies in search engine optimization, has done work forÂ Shelby County Schools,Southern College of Optometry, theÂ National Civil Rights MuseumÂ and the Cook Convention Center, and also has international clients in Canada, England, and Israel.
But Sridhar Sunkara, the companyâ€™s CEO, is expecting even more growth after the company completes development of its marketing strategy and moves into a larger office in East Memphis. Sunkara, who joined the company two and a half years ago after his wife launched it in 2005, says most of the work eBiz Solutions has done up to this point has been from word-of-mouth.
â€śPeople need to know our name and then we can at least get an opportunity to talk to them,â€ť Sunkara said.
While the decision on where theyâ€™ll locate their new office hasnâ€™t been finalized, Sunkara said once the move is done, the company will look to bring in nine or 10 new employees. eBiz Solutions currently has six employees.
One of the companyâ€™s current projects is incorporating sensors into different scenarios, including real estate, car lots and museums. Customers or visitors can receive information from the sensors on their mobile devices to get information ranging from information on a vehicle or property to facts on a particular exhibit. In return, information such as how long and how often a site, vehicle or exhibit is visited can also be gathered.
â€śWe try to educate the client, show them whatâ€™s out there and let them choose,â€ť Sunkara said. â€śWe donâ€™t push people into anything they donâ€™t want to do.â€ť
