Guwahati-based IT firm Zakti Digital Services entered its 11th year of operations this June 2023, making it among the few long-standing agencies in the region consistently catering to the digital needs of its clients. The firm made its debut back in 2012 with a vision to empower businesses in Northeast India to bolster their online presence. Although their range of services has evolved from digital media and monitoring solutions to customized digital products powered by AI, their approach to tackling client needs has remained fairly unchanged for the longest time - that is to first prioritize a client’s need for long-term sustenance and then build solutions catering to those unique needs.

By delivering personalized solutions in the digital domain, developing IT products & services for B2B enterprises, and rendering IT consultancy services to clients in the field of education, healthcare, Government, and beyond, Zakti Digital Services has become a key player in the industry in North East India.

Over a span of 11 years, the firm has successfully maintained its stream of operations across the Northeastern states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, and Meghalaya, with its aim to connect the region with the rest of India through innovative digital solutions.

The firm has been involved in several key projects, including the development of the Power Pay App for the Department of Power, Government of Arunachal Pradesh, simplifying digital payments, monitoring of electricity bills and grievance reporting for consumers of Arunachal Pradesh through the mobile service app.

Prior to Assam Police making its mark in digital alertness, Zakti has made a huge contribution by working closely with Assam Police, in training the cyber team about combating cybercrime, tapping into social listening tools, and overall aiding them in establishing digital preparedness, which is a vital boost to the foundation of the state's safety and security.

The firm has also worked on developing a monitoring and reporting system for UNICEF Assam and was actively involved in the outreach programme of the National Register of Citizens (NRC, Assam) during the publication of the draft and final list.

In addition to these government initiatives, Zakti Digital has also developed a number of products for private companies including SaaS solutions specifically tailored for different private hospitals and enterprises. These solutions have helped to streamline business processes, making them more effective and practical for their clients.

In a statement made upon the completion of the firm’s 11 years, Zakti’s Founder and Director Kamal Singha said, ‘I am happy to have contributed to the development of the region. Our persevering success in the Northeastern market only proves that there is no shortage of talent among the youths of the region, and I am proud to have been part of this incredible journey.’

Further commenting on the firm’s upcoming plans, Kamal added that they are working on an Ed-Tech product specifically for the students of Northeast India in amplifying their potential to the fullest. The product is expected to hit the market soon and is anticipated to be a game-changer in the education sector of the region.

While sharing its string of success stories, the firm has not hesitated from admitting to the unique challenges they have faced in the industry, which is a relatively smaller market compared to the rest of India and overseas. As you get to work in the industry for long enough, you get acquainted with some stark reality of how things work, says Kamal.

Some of the issues Zakti has faced as a unit include a lack of transparency in the system, the presence of lobbying groups, and other issues that have posed hurdles in the path of the companys progress. Nevertheless, the firm has been able to overcome these challenges and continue to strive for excellence without looking back.

After 11 years of productive operations, the firm is dedicated to improving the prospects of the NE region and intends to continue pursuing greatness. They are optimistic about the future growth & development in the market, and roots for the long-term success of local businesses, for which it continues catering to innovative solutions in the digital realm.
