Ontrack announces plan to turn adversity to opportunity

Ontrack Systems Limited ( www.ontrackindia.com) today announced that the company has been severely affected by the downturn and has significant cash flow problems. “Our operations across the globe have been affected due to several factors and we are under tremendous pressure to meet all our obligations and commitments on time. Though customer acquisition has continued to grow in several markets, profitability and cash flows have taken a serious hit leading to the current situation. Our diverse portfolio of services and the number of operating groups that we had created has added to the complexity of managing costs in all markets. We are financially unwell and we need to turn our strengths and assets to cash and leverage our customer and talent base in order to turn this adversity to an opportunity. As on date we have short and long term liabilities of Rs. 27.1 crores (US $ 5.5 Million) and our current assets, fixed assets and investments will need to be leveraged to bring in more cash into our business. Operations of IQ Technologies, USA and its wholly owned subsidiary FAST, India (which we have recently acquired) have also been impacted by the current downturn. Operations in Australia and UK are likely to have a slump in billing during the current quarter and we do see that customers are cutting back on IT spend and contracts and holding back investment decisions till the markets stabilise. Except for UAE and Holland none of our overseas markets are expected to generate positive cash flows and margins in the current fiscal unless we change our strategies and contain costs. Our education and skill development initiatives are showing good signs of growth , profitability and market leadership and we will continue to invest in this initiative even in such market conditions. Our board has advised us that www.tendertimes.com , Ontrack’s flagship portal and India’s first tender web daily should be hived off to a strategic partner and we are already in advanced stage of discussions with two major groups for achieving this objective. Ontrack Global Service Limited, our wholly owned subsidiary which specialises in providing recruitment services has also been impacted in this downturn since companies wanting to recruit candidates have become too choosy and are also not in a hurry except for specialised skills. The times are extremely tough and the market scenario is very challenging , but we are very confident that the opportunities are immense even in such market conditions for companies like us and our global management team is committed to maximise the opportunities in these market conditions” said B Hari, CEO of the company.

“We are in a very challenging situation and we have realised that we have to act very quickly and efficiently to get short term and medium term results which will improve our cash flow and profitability. We will rationalise our operations across all divisions and will increase employee productivity and revenue contribution and keep a tight control on cost of operations.” said Sandip Mukherjee , Head of Ontrack’s - Microsoft Dynamics practice .

“We are in a war -like situation and we will execute our decision with precision. We are not afraid of making mistakes, but will quickly measure and control our actions to ensure that our operations get ONTRACK once again. We are merging all our operations under one group called the Enterprise Solutions Group (ESG) and this would provide us a large customer base to cross sell all our services. The sales team also would be integrated as a single team and we expect these initiatives to deliver quick results . We are evaluating operations and divisions which are not profitable and performing at this time may be hived off or closed with minimal impact to our customers.” said Subhamoy Roy Choudhury, Head of Ontrack’s Technology Solutions Group (TSG).

Geography is History.

It is said that there are two reasons why we learn; some learning is essentially forced on us while the other is what we sit back and enjoy. E-Learning has brought back the joy in learning through its innovative, interactive content and delivery.

Getlearning.net, developed by Clydebank College to deliver learning opportunities to students whether they are at home, at work or indeed anywhere where they are connected on computer to the internet. Harnessing the power of broadband technology, getlearning.net delivers high quality courses to students who would like to learn through this new innovative technology.

Ontrack Systems signed an agreement today to partner with Clydebank College, Scotland (www.clydebank.ac.uk )

The partnership enables Ontrack to use and sell e-learning content of over 7000 hours in various topics over the internet. "We also will become a testing centre for several certifications and will work as an extended arm of Clydebank College in India. We have also plans to work in partnership to develop new courseware suitable for our markets" said Mr. B.Hari, MD- Ontrack Systems.

Mr.Robin Ghosh, Director Ontrack Systems elaborated and said “This partnership also includes a course called International Computer Driving Licence. (ICDL). ICDL and ECDL have been defined and developed by the European Commission to ensure that basic computing skills are tested on every person looking for any employment. The Getlearning platform and contents have been built over years spending millions of dollars and we intend to use it for administering to students at our ERP School (www.erpschool.in)."

There are millions of people in over 100 countries who have certified for ECDL and now Ontrack would offer this course (online learning) and also certify people who register for this course.

Mr.B.Hari further said "I am pretty excited about the ICDL since this could open up online training possibilities for millions in India to get an internationally recognised certificate".
