যদি তোমার ডাক শুনে কেউ না আসে তবে একলা চলো রে
(If no one response to your calling then move alone)
- Rabindranath Tagore
In 2001 when we started our journey, we didn’t had an office means we were starting from ‘0‘. Many senior market personalities advised me that ‘Technology business' is a capital intrinsic business and this is not for me, so I should concentrate on my trading and investment and I should not expect any help from anybody. But this is also true very few people were there who gave me some clue to built valuable asset. We have some valuable asset (Honesty, Dedication, Commitment and Skilled Knowledge) and till now I believe materialistic asset is less valuable than the core value of ‘Istock’.
Initially our focus was only trading system but gradually we understood backward integration is the key component of the success of any successful venture. In a very short time period we understood that ‘users’ come from different socioeconomic structure and I can’t expect that they will understand ‘Computer Science’. So we developed user friendly application and backward integration is the nucleus of ‘Istock Systems’.
In ‘Zen philosophy’ there is a famous quotation ‘Only constant in life is change’ and actually this is the truth of life. This quotation is the driving force of ‘Istock’. If any person will track our performance of last two decade he/she will see that we change our product regularly. Presently we have 10 products and the funny thing is same number of product we not even launched (after development) because we are not satisfied. Always we try to do some new and make things differently.
