Logix Guru Expands into software testing, data analytics and app development

Article Published: September 11, 2015

To people outside of the industry, the term “Information Technology” often recalls a vague sense of distress over a computing issue, and maybe the static hiss of hold music. Its real nature, however, is obvious to the people who work at it every day. Singh Ajmani, Founder and CEO of Logix Guru, sums it up in one neat sentence:

“We are in the business of serving others and solving problems.”

Sing 385Ajmani started Logix Guru in 2003 as an IT staffing and consulting business. When companies needed IT professionals with very specific skill sets, they turned to Logix Guru for efficient and dependable staffing or counsel. Logix Guru serves clients in fields such as health care, manufacturing and finance by providing highly qualified team members for complex projects.

But just as Ajmani answered the demand for staffing and consulting, Logix Guru also evolved to handle quality assurance testing and application development. The company’s growth was a natural extension of its core services; clients who came to Logix Guru for staffing also needed help with testing their software or developing applications, and Logix Guru stepped in to bridge the gap. Initially, Logix Guru partnered with an IT company in India that was already experienced and offered an outsider’s unbiased perspective. But soon Logix Guru developed in-house capabilities, and now offers its own refined process for quality assurance and app development in addition to its core business in staffing and consulting.

While in the business of serving others, team members at Logix Guru cleave to both elements of the name: solving problems with carefully considered logic and diagnostic insight, and striving to fully realize their abilities. To Ajmani, the importance of both halves is indispensable.

“To be our clients’ valued partner, we have to be true to ourselves and what we can do,” said Ajmani. “Being a ‘Yes Man’ can make things easy at first, but causes disappointment and frustration for everyone down the road.” Logix Guru relies on word-of-mouth recommendations for new business, so the team focuses on client relationships with mutual trust and investment.

In addition to seeking new business, Logix Guru aims to expand into Big Data and analytics. The same clients that needed staffing and then quality assurance are now looking into analytics to solve big picture problems and develop creative strategies. Logix Guru plans to increase its talent pool in management, internal operations, and client services to support the company’s goals for new business and Big Data.

IT professionals who want to become a Guru should review the company’s values, which are guiding principles for all team members whether they’ve been in the company for a decade or a day. Those values include accountability, urgency and integrity, as well as personal balance. For Ajmani, true professionals invest in their family, social and spiritual well-being as much as their work. Each team member represents the entire company to the client, so a Guru should be a well-rounded person, grounded against making overblown promises to the customer or vacillating in focus or decision-making.
