Excelsoft Technologies looking to grow B2C segment


Education and training solutions provider Excelsoft Technologies, which has established itself in the overseas market as a B2B provider, is now looking homewards, but to grow in the B2C area.

With a set of marquee clients such as the Guardian newspaper, Harvard Business School Publishing, Pearson Education and Whizz Education (UK) already in its kitty, Excelsoft is leveraging on the products it built for these clients and working on ‘differentiated products for the Indian market.'

Mr. D. Sudhanva, Managing Director, Excelsoft Technologies, told Business Line that the company would broad-base its offerings to build a strong brand that will cater to the B2C market in India.

The Rs 90-crore company, which has development centres in Mysore, Hyderabad and Noida, is also looking at a possible listing in 18-24 months.

Acquisitions and funding :

“In addition, Excelsoft is also eyeing acquisitions of small companies ($3-4 million) operating in similar businesses but having strong IP assets that would complement our business. Funding for the acquisitions would be through internal accruals as B2B in the export market is a high margin business" -  Mr. D. Sudhanva explained.

In India, Excelsoft has already developed learning management systems for corporates (Infosys, ICICI Bank) and is now looking at developing online platform and content for the K-12 (kindergarten to 12 {+t} {+h} standard) sector. The Mysore based company has also developed software for tests and assessments for institutes such as TIME and Brilliant. The company has tied up with Visvesvaraya Technical University and Anna University to deliver online programs for their engineering courses.

JV with one of the largest Educational Publishers in Europe

Infinitas Learning, one of the leading educational publishers in Europe, has today announced the creation of a new joint venture business with Excelsoft Technologies, a leading provider of online teaching and learning technology based in India.

The newly formed company will exploit the fast growing international digital market in K-12 and higher education by offering teachers and students access to their innovative and interactive online books. In addition, plans are already in place to launch an online community platform which will allow both teacher to teacher and student to student collaboration as well as the exciting possibility of teacher to student interaction totally online via the web in a global ‘e’ school environment.

Fred Grainger, CEO of Infinitas Learning, commented “I have long been an admirer of Excelsoft. The company has developed a brilliant online interactive book in collaboration with key teams at Infinitas Learning. Moreover Sudhanva (CEO Excelsoft) and I can visualise how every educational publisher could benefit from this software which allows a teacher to create continuity with the print version of the textbook that they use every day in the classroom, and an electronic version that a student can access any time anywhere.”

This newly developed digital technology enables teachers to embed their own notes, animations and video clips, and test questions directly into an online version of the textbook that they use in class with their students. This simple, yet immensely powerful application has the facility for students to have their own user name and password which grants access to all the content that the teacher had shown them in their lesson 24/7. This even extends to a teacher being able to record their voice and embed it into any text within the online book – especially beneficial for language learning.

Grainger went on to say, “This logical extension of traditional textbooks into the digital age is the perfect opportunity to raise standards in both teaching and learning by extending opportunities for engagement beyond the classroom and supporting students of every level. Fred I think we should leave out the ‘ensure that no child gets left behind’ as we could be asked about those with no internet access at home). Teachers will be able to see other teaching styles in their subject, and can modify any content in their online book to fit the needs and abilities of their own students. Alongside these publishers are able to tag additional and updated resources to each book they release ensuring the online book is always engaging and evolving .”

It is envisaged that the e-school online learning platform will extend publishing opportunities. Teachers will be provided with the tools to publish content they have created themselves to use alongside the interactive book, and also to share in a collaborative environment with their peers. This technology will open up a myriad of exciting opportunities to both personalise and extend teaching and learning globally.

Excelsoft Technologies is a leading global player in developing technology solutions for education and training. Excelsoft designs and develops turnkey solutions for educational publishing groups that include an integrated delivery platform for e-Learning and other online services; technology platforms and tools for content authoring and management and services for content design and development. SARAS – a product suite for Learning and Assessment Management has successfully penetrated the international markets in corporations, universities and schools, publishers and Governments. SARAS enables transformation of businesses into learning organizations, enhances the effectiveness of teaching-learning-assessment processes in educational institutions and provides newer revenue streams for publishers.

Mr. Sudhanva, CEO of Excelsoft, commented “Infinitas Learning has more than 30,000 individual book titles that are used daily by teachers around the world. We clearly see the vision and scope of this new business that allows collaborative teaching and learning to occur 24/7. The thought that, in a few month's time, our new joint venture will launch an online e-school where students from all over the world can log-in and study as long as they want, wherever they want illustrates just how fast the educational landscape is changing, driven by the development of online tools and services. Together with Infinitas Learning in our new business venture we intend to be the leaders in this field.”
