Harishanker Kannan is the Co-Founder and CEO of Scalefusion, a mobile device and endpoint management platform. He is a seasoned technologist with over two decades of expertise. His career path is a diverse tapestry of experiences, creating world-class SaaS products.
Scalefusion was founded in 2014 in response to a compelling market need—the need for easier mobile device management, particularly for small and medium-sized organizations. Harishanker saw an opportunity to provide a simple solution that was both accessible and efficient. The adventure began with the release of a standalone Android app on the Google Play Store, which served as a strategic test to gauge market interest and demonstrate the practicality of their idea.
Evolution of Scalefusion
What started as a simple Android kiosk-based locking application rapidly grew into a full device and endpoint management solution. Scalefusion took a crucial step ahead as a result of the excellent market response. Creating a complete dashboard that provides a full picture of device inventories was a big milestone. Scalefusion is now positioned as a solution that streamlines the difficulties of device management.
In an era when businesses frequently seek outside capital, Scalefusion distinguishes out as a 100% self-funded venture. The firm has been self-funded from its beginning, depending on a strong financial management plan to continue its growth and development.
Current Position and Achievements
Scalefusion is headquartered in Pune and operates in Gurgaon, Bangalore, France, Mexico, the United States, and Latin America. Scalefusion is a G2 leader and included in Gartner’s Mid Market Context, with a high Capterra rating of 4.7/5. Scalefusion continues to simplify device management for organizations by serving over 8000 clients internationally, including well-known brands like Radisson and Decathlon.
Target Audience and Market Positioning
Scalefusion’s major target audience is IT administrators from diverse sectors. Scalefusion addresses business requirements to maintain compliance with policies, ethical device usage, and the security of devices running in diverse management modes, focusing on managing staff devices, whether company-owned or BYOD.
During the first phase, scaling the team and striking a balance between growth and fundamental principles presented major obstacles. The thorough recruiting procedure, as well as strong financial management measures, such as monthly objectives and spending tracking, were critical in overcoming these obstacles.
Harishanker’s entrepreneurial path is founded on two fundamental principles: conviction and perseverance. Believing in the product, the concept and the overall narrative has been critical. A driving force has been an unflinching perseverance to weather highs and lows, as well as an attitude of enjoying every step of the business journey.
