We act globally.
What We Believe
Companies deserve a better forecast for their shipping cost.
At AFS, we believe in the need for transparency to reduce shipping costs for clients.
Far too often, companies do not recognize the true cost of shipping. They are ill-equipped to account for the hidden costs (weekly surcharges, rate increases, added fees).
In 2012, AFS’ leadership began to vision-cast for the future.
We recognized growing client expectations for cloud-based computing. These included:
Greater end-user flexibility
Added features with fewer clicks
An insatiable thirst for relevant data
We recognized the effort to meet the expectations and so required dedicated resources to develop new features and applications.
We recognized the benefit of ownership versus contracting in the global market. Owning builds camaraderie and brand loyalty with the people we hire. It’s a mutual investment, not a transaction.
Our decision: Invest in the people of India.
A Great Location
Hyderabad, India is fast-becoming the Silicon Valley of the Far East, with investments from global companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.
A city of just 3.6 million people in 2001, Hyderabad now boasts nearly 7 million. The workforce is highly-literate, highly-educated, and highly-motivated.
We found a great office location in the area of Begumpet. Traveling to the office is easy thanks to a public transportation stop just outside our front door on Begumpet Rd. Within 3 km, you have many amenities including apartment housing, retail and dining, and universities.
With our location targeted, we next built our team… starting at the top.
Leadership is Key
To invest in the people meant we needed a capable, local business leader. We chose Vijay Burton, Managing Director of the India team.
Vijay brings 16+ years experience building teams, engaging clients, and delivering software solutions across the globe. He previously served in various executive roles involving strategic development, technology leadership, process management, and sales/marketing.
Along with his various credentials, Vijay has earned his Masters in Computer Application from Osmania University, Hyderabad. Vijay enjoys reading, traveling, playing cricket & golf, and also likes bridging the cultural gaps between the east and the west.
Are the people we hire passionate about our belief?
