Deskera, a leading business software provider in Asia Pacific, announced that it is the first cloud-based software suite that is Goods and Services Tax (GST) ready in India.
“Deskera is the fastest growing ERP vendor in the region, and is the first Cloud-based enterprise software suite that is GST compliant in India,” said Shashank Dixit, CEO, Deskera. “With the Government’s one of the biggest tax reforms in the country, we are looking forward to it. We have been always ready for GST in India since our products are already being used in GST compliant countries like Singapore and Malaysia,” he further added.
Deskera has been working with various Government departments and businesses in Singapore and Malaysia in helping them move to the GST based system. Malaysia switched to the GST era in April 2015. Deskera, which caters mostly to SME market globally, with its affordable products, is headquartered in Singapore. It is the no.one choice of SMEs in Southeast Asia, particularity in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. Indonesia was the first country in the region to implement the GST system way back in 1984, followed by Thailand in 1992 and Singapore in 1994. The Philippines adopted the GST in 1998.
“Deskera’s ERP software has always been GST compliant and we have gone through exactly the same scenario when GST was rolled out in Malaysia. We have hands-on experience tweaking our software to different needs of different countries. Deskera has its operations in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, and Ahmedabad, and we understand the Indian laws better. We have been the no. one choice of SMEs in India too. All we need is to fill in the rates, and we are ready to go,” Shashank said.
Today, Deskera Cloud ERP powers more than 3,000 SMEs and businesses globally. It is making valuable contribution to the Indian Market. It helps SMEs migrate to an integrated Cloud-based platform, thus enhancing productivity and moving one more step in the direction of the Government’s ‘Make in India’ mission.
Deskera products are designed to fulfil the business requirements of a wide range of industries such as manufacturing, trading, distribution, engineering, building and construction. One can access the information on the go by mere use of a web browser and internet connection. Deskera’s software suite is compatible to support all the new requirements.
“The unique feature of Deskera is that it helps in seamless transition and integration of the financial structure from old version to the new one. For instance, if a manufacturing company has its financial data stored in any old financial system of any business software, he need not worry about integration of his accounts, as Deskera will integrate it with the new structure, which is GST compliant and hence help in the smooth shift,” Shashank added.
