Self-Published

Papyrofix Pvt Ltd had been initially visualized as an earnest initiative towards infusing fresh gusto into the already upcoming field of publishing technology and services. The visualization has thereafter gradually found shape and form holding hands with its founder members and their sincere efforts towards delivering the services they promise. Headquartered at Kolkata, Papyrofix Pvt Ltd, now a registered company, has been the brainchild of its founder and co-founder who sought help from few like-minded others building a team of seven who then decided to take Papyrofix to new heights and infiltrate the fabric of the world of publishing to make its own mark in the domain. Therefore, Papyrofix Pvt Ltd has been designed to cater to a considerably wide range of services which include Content Development, Proofreading / Editing, Web Development and Instructional Design. This has been possible only because the core members of the founding team have been competent enough in their own fields of expertise to handle the individual services themselves even when Papyrofix had merely started with manpower of only 7.

As is true for any other start-up endeavours, the preliminary part of the journey of Papyrofix had not been smooth given the lack of sponsors and the fact that it is a bootstrapped start-up which is still functioning from the personal finances of the founding members and operating revenues of the company. Although efforts are being relentlessly made to arrange for the necessary funding for the company to grow, nothing could be arranged as yet. However the services we have already started delivering to international clientele from different parts of the world including Australia, United States, India, Singapore, New Zealand and UAE and the appreciation we have received for the jobs well done is expected to soon bear fruits and fetch the financial endowments we have been looking forward to.

 

As far as services are concerned we have primarily provided content development services to varied clientele as already mentioned above and have made sure that the contents delivered by our content team are in no way compromised in terms of quality. Therefore contents developed by Papyrofix are made to pass though multiple quality checks manually, as well as via computer systems to nullify the chances of the occurrence of any error before any content or piece is sent to the clients. Thus our vision is “To deliver the best as we promise and to make it big in the markets we operate in.” This only becomes possible with the contribution of the core team members who strive to cater to all the needs of the clients and deliver the best of services for them.

Executive Members

Founder

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Technology from SRM University, Chennai, the Chief Founding Member of Papyrofix is pursuing MBA in Finance from Pondicherry University at present and has an intrinsic finesse that aids him in successful client management and business development as a whole. He also manages the crucial tasks of hiring and social media management for Papyrofix, without which the smooth running of the company would have never been possible. He is basic Six-Sigma certified and is also certified in digital marketing, which makes him the ideal person for the functions he is undertaking at the company. Another feather in his cap of success would be his hobby for creating poetry many of which have been already published online. At present he is also collaborating with two other poets for publication of a collection of poems in near future. He has also won a poem contest hosted by Poignant Painters, which has led him to be qualified in Top 40 poets all over India. He also has 3 years of experience in the field of Life Sciences to top it all.

Co-founder

He is equally responsible for the uphill journey of the company and has contributed immensely in the initial stage when making the company functional was the primary hurdle for the entire team.  A post graduate on applied microbiology, he later shifted his interests to the field of clinical research, for which he has two published research papers to his credit. He is also a very gifted classical musician with an intricate sense of art and a favourable inclination towards culture as a whole. At Papyrofix he successfully handles client communication and social media promotion, both of which happen to be two of the most important pillars which are holding Papyrofix aloft.

He is experienced in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Php, MySql, Bootstrap and AJAX. He also has a basic knowledge of R, C#, Ruby on Rails and Android Development. His impeccable knowledge on all the prerequisite technologies of Web Development has helped him launch 2 versions of the Papyrofix website with much expertise and as of now, the final version of the website speaks pretty clearly for itself and its maker.

He has the gift of fluid writing and can write on any given topic backing them up with considerable research and study. This of course is a pre-requisite in any content writer and that makes him an asset to the company. As far as content writing is concerned the primary criterion for client retention is quality writing that reflects singularity and uniqueness. He is capable of both and thus has helped expand our client base.

Given the joint efforts of all the core team members of Papyrofix Pvt Ltd, the company is on its way to gaining considerable recognition in its field of operation and with a little help from connoisseurs, it can reach incredible heights and deliver impeccable services to clients worldwide.
