Three men, one vi­sion. Suc­cess at any cost. DQ Chan­nels ex­plores how the three founders of Datavi­sion turned...

The de­sire to reg­is­ter their names in his­tory in­spired them to par­tic­i­pate in the race of busi­ness line which led them to start with man­u­fac­tur­ing of black and white mon­i­tors in the name of “Datavi­sion’’ in 1991.

“Life it­self is an op­por­tu­nity to make it mean­ing­ful and sig­nif­i­cant; some be­come ex­plorer and dive deep to take out the trea­sure while the oth­ers just sit, watch, and ap­plaud for them” with this thought till to­day three part­ners SS Mun­jral, GS Mun­jral and Varinder Singh are run­ning the com­pany suc­cess­fully in Am­rit­sar.

SS. Mun­jral and G.S. Mun­jral both stud­ied to­gether from DPS, Mathura Road and com­pleted fur­ther stud­ies from St. Stephens Col­lege, Delhi Uni­ver­sity. Varinder Singh was a first class stu­dent from Cam­bridge Col­lege and GNDU, Am­rit­sar who is also the back­bone of Datavi­sion and is re­spon­si­ble for han­dling the sales team in parts of Pun­jab, Delhi and Haryana.

It doesn’t mat­ter whether you have been an A or D grader through­out your school/col­lege life. At any point in life, you can evolve as ‘the great­est’ pro­vided you feel determined for some­thing wor­thy and work dili­gently ex­plained Varinder Singh.

An idea to do some­thing dif­fer­ent, has al­ways pushed three of them, to rev­o­lu­tion­ize the in­dus­try in their city of Golden Tem­ple, Am­rit­sar.

The spark ig­nited to start a busi­ness ven­ture when idea was shared by a school friend of Gur­preet Singh who was then sell­ing com­puter equip­ment in Nehru Place and to OEM com­pa­nies.

Their fo­cus was qual­ity of the prod­ucts that com­pany sup­ply to their es­teemed cus­tomers. “We con­tinue to re­main at the helm through rig­or­ous re­search and devel­op­ment. R&D labs at New Delhi and Am­rit­sar ex­plore and rein­vent ex­ist­ing prod­ucts and de­signs. Our state of the art pro­duc­tion units en­sure con­sis­tency and qual­ity through­out the prod­uct range,” adds SS Mun­jral.

“It was a long and not at all easy task to find peo­ple, train and re­tain the right em­ploy­ees who re­ally care about the or­ga­ni­za­tion the way we do,” ex­plained Varinder Singh. It was not one chal­lenge they faced but lack of in­fra­struc­ture, babu men­tal­ity of sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment, op­po­si­tion to com­put­er­i­za­tion and dig­i­ti­za­tion, lack of ad­e­quate fund­ing and no sup­port from any gov­ern­ment agency which some­where forced to think.

Never give up on life. If at any point in life you feel los­ing the battle, think about the peo­ple who gave their best in sit­u­a­tions which were tough; recharge your soul and con­tinue the jour­ney. It’s you who can help your­self to emerge as a win­ner. This is how th­ese three pro­fes­sion­als proved them­selves. They ex­panded busi­ness in north­ern In­dia and now com­pany will shortly be launch­ing its prod­ucts in Jammu and Kash­mir.

Since its in­cep­tion, Datavi­sion per­sis­tently worked on ac­com­plish­ing one mile­stone af­ter an­other. Es­tab­lished in 1991, they spe­cial­ize in on­line and off­line range of U.P.S. sys­tems and other power con­di­tion­ing equip­ment i.e. Dig­i­tal in­ver­tors, dig­i­tal and ana­log trans­form­ers for A.C., re­frig­er­a­tor, main­line and servo Sta­bi­liz­ers. Along with this they also run mul­ti­ple stores for lap­tops and other IT prod­ucts.

Sta­bil­ity, qual­ity ac­cep­tance and brand recog­ni­tion with the right busi­ness prac­tices is what Datavi­sion has achieved in all th­ese years by giv­ing more than 100%.

GS Mun­jral in a determined way ex­pressed, “We are small but a highly mo­ti­vated fam­ily whose con­cern is to work hard which has helped us in cre­at­ing a plat­form for our deal­ers to be in­volved in our busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, prod­ucts and to be as pas­sion­ate about our prod­ucts as we are for them. We strongly care for deal­ers as­so­ci­ated with us”.

Th­ese highly mo­ti­vated pro­fes­sion­als cater some poli­cies in their work life such as con­sis­tent hard work, mo­ti­vat­ing deal­ers and qual­ity work, along with say­ing no to short­cuts.

“Read­ing and spend­ing time with our re­spec­tive fam­i­lies is what we pre­fer al­ways. Our re­spec­tive fam­i­lies have a very spe­cial place not only in our hearts but in our suc­cess too. When we are at our low­est they al­ways up­lifted and sup­ported us,” hap­pily de­scribed Varinder Singh.

For young turks, own­ers of Datavi­sion also shared some pearls of wis­dom. Firstly, be­lieve in your­self and your thoughts/ vi­sions; se­condly, start small and be very fo­cused and lastly, if you are hard­work­ing and punc­tual, suc­cess will kiss your feet sooner or later. So, keep go­ing! As, there is no short­cut to suc­cess so hard work and ex­pe­ri­ence is some­thing that no one can take away from Datavi­sion.

With an ob­jec­tive of reach­ing out to dif­fer­ent wa­ter needs of the so­ci­ety, the com­pany has di­ver­si­fied its port­fo­lio with the com­plete range of do­mes­tic as well as agri­cul­ture en­ergy sav­ing wa­ter pumps and com­pany has aimed to ex­plore day by day. By cre­at­ing Datavi­sion, a suc­cess story of re­li­a­bil­ity in power prod­ucts has been cre­ated. Long way to go as the hori­zon is still far away.

Datavi­sion team is ready to ex­pand, in­no­vate and pro­duce new prod­ucts, ex­port es­pe­cially to SAARC coun­tries.
