Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Vendavo, the leading provider of enterprise solutions to analyze, negotiate and close profitable deals, today announced additions to its engineering team that strengthen the company’s innovative technology. The company appointed Ravi Mirchandaney as senior vice president of engineering, and has expanded its overall team to more than 90 engineers distributed across the United States and the Czech Republic. This growth has been fueled in part by hiring talent from some of the country’s most innovative companies, including Ariba, IBM, Apple and various Wall Street financial firms. Additionally, since Ravi’s arrival at the company, the engineering team filed five patents related to Big Data analytics.
“We recognize it will take strong engineering talent to develop solutions that allow our customers to capitalize on the promise of Big Data,” said Neil Lustig, chief executive officer of Vendavo. “The team we have assembled is doing an amazing job bringing innovative profitable selling solutions to market and with Ravi at the helm, I am excited to see how we will take these efforts the next level.”
Under Ravi’s leadership, Vendavo’s engineering team will focus on developing intelligent analytics solutions that enable Vendavo customers to improve margins. As a result of his team’s work, the company will release several SaaS and Big Data analytics technologies to enable customers grow more profitably.
“It is invigorating to contemplate the ingenious technologies Vendavo will develop in the coming years and months, and I am privileged to be a part of this team,” said Ravi. “The company’s innovative approach to a complex problem drew me to the company, and I am confident our impressive portfolio of patents, intellectual property and resulting products will only continue to profoundly impact the market.”
Prior to his current position, Ravi served as the Senior Vice President of Engineering for C3 Energy Network, a provider of Big Data analytic platforms and SaaS applications for supply-side and demand-side optimizations for the Smart Grid. While at the company, Ravi delivered industry-leading analytics products that are currently deployed by some of the leading utilities in the US.
