1. What motivated you to found the business? Please give us a CEMPIA primer.
I worked for an incorporated company until 2008. My goal was to climb the corporate ladder quickly, so I chose to study for my MBA at MIT Sloan and HEC Paris. This was a life-changing experience for me since it inspired me to develop things, change the future, create jobs, give back to society, and improve the planet. I joined teams focused on business innovation and capability building when I first started working after earning my MBA, and I soon began triumphing in entrepreneurship competitions. This ability to innovate and excel in business issues motivated me to start TheDecisionLabs in 2014.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.André Gide
A production business with a focus on customer experience management is called TheDecisionLabs. We currently provide three products: CEMPIA, Liveserviz, and KlikHelp.
2. What difficulties did you initially encounter?
We work in the area of customer experience, which has a particular reputation in India, where we first established ourselves. In India, customer experience is typically associated with an air hostess, a receptionist, a call from the contact center, or a guest relations agent in the hotel lobby. We seldom ever consider using an analytics embedded platform to improve client experience. Therefore, raising awareness of product-based CX and establishing a category are gratifying and demanding tasks.
3. Which event led to the company’s expansion and when?
After starting TheDecisionLabs in October 2014, we gained traction in late 2015 and early 2017, and then, in 2017, we had our first breakthrough in Malaysia, which is when CEMPIA began to expand and go global. We began producing top-notch goods for the global market as our horizons grew.
4. How has the CEMPIA graph evolved since its inception? Could you provide some statistics?
TheDecisionLabs has come a long way in the previous six years from a small setup in a garage in Indiranagar, Bangalore to expanding operations outside India and having 9 international partners with product deployments in six countries. The company’s flagship product, CEMPIA, specializes in patient experience management, but we are currently receiving a lot of attention from the hospitality, banking, retail, etc. industries. We are now concentrating on remote service management with Liveserviz and a real-time automated support system called KlikHelp thanks to the introduction of COVID. As a result, we are expanding our geographic and sector reach as well as our product line.
5. What accounts for the sustained success of your business?
Our success over the previous 6 years, in my opinion, has been fueled by 2 key factors.
Obsession with our customers and doing everything possible to ensure their success
Constant innovation to stay on top of the newest technology and market demands

Most of the time, we are collaborating for a better result and a better planet.
14. Whose company success story inspires you the most?
I value creativity. when you invent something fresh and improve the world. Recently, I’ve found OYO’s Ritesh Agarwal to be incredibly encouraging. He came up with an excellent business plan and carried it out flawlessly.
15. Continuous watchfulness: A need or a tactic? Please express your opinions.
It’s similar to flying a kite in that you sometimes let it float and other times you make a few threads tug to achieve a balance, which is the ideal mix.
16. There is a rat race going on. How are you handling that?
When I went to Rishikesh in December of last year, it had a big impact on me. I don’t evaluate myself against anyone else. I’m on a journey, not a race, and I’m meeting people along the way, enjoying the exchanges, and slowly but surely making progress in the right direction.
