BestDoc, a Kerala-based Indian health-tech provider offering a suite of omnichannel end-to-end patient relationship management products has expanded its operations to the city of Dubai. The company established its regional headquarters in Dubai last year and the move was supported and facilitated by Dubai International Chamber.
Within a short period of time, the company has already acquired associations with some of the most sought-after names in UAE such as Burjeel Royal Hospital, Al Ain, and Emirates International Hospital and they are currently working on a pilot project with the Saudi German Hospital, Dubai. BestDoc has invested over $0.5 million in Dubai with a primary focus on establishing a robust brand presence, setting up a local entity, and building dedicated sales and support teams to better serve their customers in the region. The company is ambitiously planning to increase its investments in the GCC region by three to four times over the next 3 to 5 years with a significant share earmarked for Dubai.
BestDoc was a part of the shortlisted startups in the Dubai Tech Tour organized by the Dubai Chamber in 2020. Dubai Tech Tour 2020 had 15 shortlisted startups from 197 applications, 8 from FinTech and 7 from Health-Tech. BestDoc has a strong team and has fast-growing solutions that are solving long-standing problems in healthcare administration.
Commenting on the expansion, Afsal Salu, Co-Founder and CEO of BestDoc, said, “BestDoc’s decision to establish its regional headquarters in Dubai is anchored on several factors including the emirate’s strategic location as a global gateway, world-class infrastructure, and advanced healthcare ecosystem. Dubai provides an excellent platform for the company’s growth and expansion plans in the GCC.”
“The setting up of BestDoc’s regional headquarters in Dubai is a prime example of the emirate’s robust economy and favourable business environment. Dubai is a leading business destination for global investors and talent, and we look forward to welcoming more international companies in line with our strategic priority of attracting MNCs, SMEs and startups to Dubai.” says Mohammad Ali Rashed Lootah, President & CEO of Dubai Chambers.
Dubai International Chamber, one of the three chambers operating under Dubai Chambers, has successfully attracted Indian homegrown health-tech SME, BestDoc, to set up its regional headquarters in Dubai. Having significantly invested in Dubai, BestDoc has ambitious plans to increase its investments in the GCC.
After having significantly invested in Dubai, the company seeks to expand to 100 hospitals in the UAE, and over the next two to three years, in Bahrain and other GCC countries. This expansion is expected to quadruple its current sales and support teams over the next five years, creating at least 50 high-quality jobs in Dubai.
