Besides this, they provide a lot of services in the field of Analytics as well.
How it all started.
A story of infinite struggles is involved behind the inception of any business or company. An idea needs to be nurtured and all the possible efforts are directed towards it.
S.KingstonSmiler started a career as a developer, and then he gradually started shifting his focus towards Pre-sales and Product Management side. Meanwhile, he met the cofounders, Santosh Danegoudar & Parul Agrawal of the Company, who are also from the Engineering background. Thinking deeply about the customers’ requirements and services, they started working on the consultant mode. They gathered confidence from the customers’ side because the number of customers was increased from a few to 10 in a span of two years. On the same notion, they were focusing more on building products and elongating the list of clientele. After giving a deep thought, they incepted the PalCNetworks.
How are they different?
In contemporary times, if you look at the network service provider companies, then they are only limited to provide you services like switching, routing, etc. And, the application service provider companies only focus on launching new applications with the help of newer and advanced technologies. Possessing an enriching experience in the Networking zone, Palc Networks provides you a blend of networking and application services that provide an upper hand in the competition with its peers.

Values and Ethics
Kingston Smiler believes in truth and transparency. He says, “If you are truthful to the customers and when you fail at times, then they will trust and respect you. Be transparent with them, even if you are not on the right path, they may not understand at that point, but later they will realize this.”
In the internal organization also, they encourage taking feedback from the employees. At PalCNetworks, everyone needs to be technologically-oriented. They believe in the transfer of knowledge, whatever is happening in the market, employees need to be updated. Aligning with the latest technology also seems so essential. Connecting to the dots is important.
Switching from the values and ethics to the challenges faced by the Company. The most prominent obstacle was finding the right set of people to work in the organization. They do not face any challenge to identify the right customer but to find the appropriate people with the correct skillset is far more challenging in this technologically-driven era.

Be aligned with your intuition and you ought to be more calculative in taking risks. Whether or not you are an entrepreneur, but you need to rely on your gut whilst taking decisions. This is the ultimate success mantra.”
