Sudhir Patil- Founder and CEO of Leap Info Systems Pvt. Ltd.
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Sudhir Patil: Leap was founded with the vision of developing remote monitoring, controls and automation technology solutions for small and medium scale enterprises. Initially we developed few products for real time monitoring of Solar PV plants. Later in the year 2016, we saw wave of LED fication with a single objective of saving electrical energy. We thought there is huge potential to save energy over just replacing traditional light sources by LED’s. Specially in India we have huge scope due to availability of day light for min. 10 hrs / day. Having studied this subject we understood that there exists the lighting automation solutions but still not been used for practical purposes because most of them are proprietory, single vendor solutions. There exists a big problem of dependencies as well as cost effectiveness. We decided to develop a product which will solve these problems. Introduced products and services based on OPEN STANDARDS.
