Even when your team is working remotely, you need to keep them connected to ensure everyone is literally on the same page. Prakya enables agile project management practices putting together all information at one place for easy access. This brings 360° visibility or PRAKYA to the team.

Our Belief

Be a giver. We, at Prakya, believe that people come first and when they are well-informed, teams are happy, productive, aligned, and can build great products and services. Enterprise collaboration solutions by Prakya develops trust and alignment within the teams with the goal of managing projects end-end in the organization.

Key Value Proposition

Prakya stands for visibility and vice-versa. Our key value proposition at Prakya is visibility that helps bring the entire teamwork and collaboration to align and bring success to the shared goals. We strongly believe the top-down & bottom-up alignment is key to achieve the organizational objectives and success.

Our philosophy

Each team member should have access to the same set of information to foster real time collaboration unless the information is extremely confidential. Teams work more efficiently when they have up to date information and are on the same level with a team communication tool. It pays to have information equally available to everyone for project planning.

We believe high performance teams are the pillars of a successful organization. By leveraging our vast experience and technology, we want to help organizations build their teams enabled with 360-degree visibility and visual collaboration tools.
