Business Scenario

Most of the business organisations are using vast and sterile spread sheet matrixes and unable to distil meaningful information to gauge their biggest business risks. Lack of time and resources to manage the strategic planning or risk assessment processes are the critical factors affecting the businesses. Besides they are struggling to get a complete view on their business risks and struggling to effect the desired change in their organisation.


FlipView™ partnered with Covalense in developing the product through an offshore engagement. Utilising the Microsoft technologies in a cloud-based SaaS model, the product engineering has been undertaken for the past 2 years, leveraging the benefits of the offshore delivery model, dedicated infrastructure and resources under a well-defined process. In Nov ’18, Covalense invested in the further development and marketing of the FlipView™ as an enterprise product.
