Anjan, founder of Vanatge Circle has served for more than 17 years as freelance ecommerce consultant in the UK. He has been building and architecting enterprise web application for over a decade and has spent time working for global giants like Tesco, Thomas Cook, Philips, and Royal Mail.

Anjan beleives that employees are the pillar of any company and it is only the employees which stand as a pillar for any growth. Maximum members of vantage Circle are based locally in Guwahati and they face significant challenges in getting skilled manpower. Urgent hiring is always a big problem for them.
The company is now profitable with the employee revenue generated reaching more than $500,000.

We have partnered with major ecommerce portals like Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, etc to provide customised deals and discounts to corporate employees in India.” Last year, Vantage Circle was awarded a large contract for the Employee Rewards and Recognition platform by one of the largest enterprises in the US.
