Family plays a great role in everybody’s life. From the time of birth till the time we leave this world, family stands as an indispensable element in one’s life. It is the family that nurtures, inculcates values and shapes us to be a good human being. With the growing demands in career and personal life, employees find it very difficult to cope up with various aspects of life.

How challenging is it to develop the product solution according to hospital’s requirements?
The healthcare industry perhaps is the most challenging industry for IT solution implementation. PARAS provides complete integrated solutions and hence it is more challenging to maintain this integrity while incorporating hospital customization request. When ever we are adding new functionality to our product we have to consider the performance of the product. While incorporating the changes it is challenging to decide whether we have to act upon it as a product road map or to implement it with configuration.
