Who founded the product/company?
After having successful career in Business Analytics, Bhupendra, CEO of InRev, bit by the entrepreneur bug and so started a new venture, which was fuelled by the invitation from Marketelligent team which got incubated in IIM-B NSRCEL. After brief course of stay for 1.5 years he felt consulting on Business Analytics is never a lucrative profession as it is oriented toward people centrism. He was determined to quit Marketelligent to develop a product company which has more intrinsic value than consultancy. Though there were setbacks in the process of quitting, he moved on to establish a product company in Business Analytics field. He was able to get the team on board and developed a new product.
But his time at Marketelligent was not for long. Mr. Bhupendra soon figured out he wanted to build a product, instead of working in a consulting firm like Marketelligent. He thought that most of the big multi-billion dollar companies like Google, Microsoft etc. were all product based companies. One fine day he was having coffee with a friend Rohit (now CTO of InRev) and began to describe the features of his product. As the discussion went on, Mr. Bhupendra soon realized such a product could be implemented practically and there was no turning back from that point of time. He was determined to see that his product would see the light of day even if it meant starting from scratch and forming a new start-up.
On September 23rd, 2010 InRev launched the most anticipated social media management application named Simplify360. Currently, Simplify360 is one of the leading Social Media Management SaaS solutions in Asia, and the company has recently started its US operations in Austin, Texas and has also entered the Malaysian Market.
