Welcome to KL Software Technologies (“KLST”). As President and Group CEO, I know I speak for all of our e mployees as I proudly inform you about our company and the ideals which we stand for. KLST’s mission can be summed up in three words – Deliver Technology Innovation. Founded in 2003, our company enjoys a rich history of delivering cutting edge technology solutions and mobile applications that change the way people communicate and collaborate with each other.
That determined effort started in Sydney, Australia in a small garage, and today our solutions and applications are used by customers throughout North America, United Kingdom, Australia and beyond. We are guided by KLST’s vision statement “Leading Innovation”, which reflects the pride, spirit and aspirations of our shareholders, board of directors, and employees.
As an introduction to KLST, let me describe our key strengths and strategies. These are the things that make us special, a “KLian” – the foundation upon which our business relationships are based.
First of all, I am fortunate to work with a talented group of highly motivated, loyal and experienced people. Several members of my leadership team have been with the company since inception. Our typical employee has been with us more since start – which is remarkable for a business of our size and a competitive technology employment landscape.
This speaks for another of our key strengths – family values. As a private, family-owned company, we treat one another with dignity and respect, and work hard to improve the communities in which we operate. The Jagannathan family, which continues to own 100 percent of the company, recognizes there are many stakeholders in the business beyond themselves – including customers, suppliers, communities, and employees. They consistently have shared the rewards of success with all these stakeholders. They also take a long-term point of view on our business by looking towards the next generation, not just the next quarterly earnings report.
Another great strength of our company is focus on latest technology trends and investment in Innovation. Today, we are one of the leaders in creating cutting edge mobile applications for various platforms such as Apple iPhones/iPads or Microsoft Surface tablets or the forthcoming Google Glass device. We continue to innovate – with a constant flow of new ideas and wearable computing apps that keep us on the cutting edge. A notable recent example is the release of Annotate101 app that will revolutionize how users read and annotate (take notes, write comments etc) on e-books, review legal documents and board papers on their touch screen tablets and PCs. We also continue to expand our product offering with the recent addition of our Innovation Division and continued innovation with wearable computing devices and Internet of Things (IoT).
Still another key strength is the legacy we have been building for more than 10 years. KLST and the Jagannathan family are synonymous. Our combined reputation means more to us than dollars and cents. Integrity is a byword of how we do business. We are award-winning leaders in providing reliable technology consulting services on the Microsoft platform, especially Microsoft SharePoint. We take care to maintain a strong balance sheet underpinned by conservative accounting. We have established a world-class board of directors. A majority of the board’s members came from careers outside of KLST, ensuring independent oversight. My Board and I continue to play an active role in the company’s governance and strategies.
Put all these attributes together, and they explain how we have achieved our greatest strength of all – the relationship we have with our customers. Recognizing every customer has its own unique market position and strategies, we work hard to understand and meet those special needs – one customer at a time. Our sales force plays a key role in matching our capabilities to each customer’s needs and care about our customer’s success and measurable ROI on every dollar spent with KLST.
Now that you know our strengths, let me list our key defining strategies – five of them in all:
- Being the best in the world at creating mobile and wearable computing applications, and by so become the leader in our industry;
- Succeed by helping our customers meet their business objectives;
- Offer the best technology consulting services,, high quality products at cost effective prices to our customers, built on Microsoft SharePoint, CRM and Office 365 platform;
- Believing in our global team, each of whom plays a key role in keeping our company innovative, competitive and successful;
- Continuing to build the legacy that defines our family company;
