Fulfil.IO is cloud based software that enables businesses to track and manage their inventory whether selling online, offline, or through a third party application. The ability of the software to include powerful purchasing, manufacturing, shipping and accounting, makes it a must have for businesses in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, and other industries.
Rituparna Panda, the co-founder of this influential system says, “This powerful bundle of tools lets them focus on their core business rather than spending hours juggling between multiple systems.”
Rituparna, already having prior experience in helping businesses use their technology efficiently, could empathize with the struggle that e-commerce businesses go through. So, there was no doubt in her mind when her co-founders suggested that they combine their skills into creating a software that could make e-commerce businesses manage their inventory more efficiently.
Everything that could possibly go wrong, did, and when it does, be prepared to face them and solve them. Entrepreneurship is made out to be sexy only in movies and the press.”
Taking the entrepreneurial journey however, is not an easy road she says, going on to say, “Everything that could possibly go wrong, did, and when it does, be prepared to face them and solve them. Entrepreneurship is made out to be sexy only in movies and the press.” Some of the challenges for the entrepreneur were, staying cash flow positive, managing client satisfaction 24/7, talent acquisition and training, retaining the talent and the never-ending “To-Do” list. Like most successful startups, Fulfil.IO was bombarded with chaotic challenges as well.
However, the techie remains unshaken in the midst of all the chaos, determined to successfully build the business. “Mens sana in corpore sano”, meaning, “A sound mind in a sound body”, the mantra that helps Rituparna in conquering any obstacle that life throws her way. Getting plenty of sleep and exercise, in her opinion, unifies the mind and the body which in turn makes one more productive throughout the day. The passionate entrepreneur says that young entrepreneurs today often neglect this while stating, “Proper care of your body and brain enhances productivity and gives you the edge you need for success.”
Overall, Rituparna is excited about the opportunities that her entrepreneurial journey has brought her and is grateful for the people she gets to work with. For her, the opportunity to eat, sleep, and help white collar people on a daily basis is the personification of happiness.
