We initially started with the software HEADS Pro and served the massive needs in the highway development projects across the country in 1998. The projects were Golden Quadrilateral, East-West and North-South Corridors, and Port Connectivities to name a few. Later on, we introduced software ASTRA Pro for similar needs in Transportation Infrastructure development projects in India and other developing countries. Our next product HEADS Rail is provided to various users in India and other countries engaged in various railway and metro rail projects. Our other product TransPlan is unique in its kind, to offer the Transport Planners with the most essential features like traffic analysis, economic & financial analysis to determine the project viability as an important part of the feasibility studies. We then introduced software suite HEADS Site with four separate modules applicable for (a) IrrigationWater resources management-design of Hydraulic Structures, (b) Open pit mining projects with Land Acquisition Record Management and satellite applications for estimations of excavations and stock piles with irregular shapes, (c) various applications on Topographic Survey and (d) for design and construction applications in airports, tunnelling, and water supply pipe distribution network to name a few.
What is the current market landscape of the infrastructure development industry in the country and how has been the revenue growth of TechSOFT Engineering Services?
The industry is affected by COVID-19, and expects final supports and other help from the Govts. of each individual country to withstand the massive setback and in turn to support the employees who are the citizens of the country and will be able to survive. The revenue growth depends on the investment by a country in their infrastructure development. The investments in the development of Transportation, Water Resources, Mining, Power sectors, Industrial sectors bring growth in the private sector companies.
