Association of Systems Integrators and Retailers in Technology, better known as ASIRT, is an Association of, for and by System integrators (SIs) and Retailers in India. The Association has this year completed its 9 years of serving its members and contributing to the IT ecosystem. Its aim is to build partnerships and help the SI community to expand business boundaries and reach higher goals.
ASIRT, founded in 2012, has currently 200+ members and offers equal opportunity to all to collaborate, network and grow. They can be either a small IT retailer, to a large System Integrator.
ASIRT provides a platform to collaborate with fellow System Integrators – not as a competitor but as a partner. All the members have come to realize that where they saw each other as a competitor once, have now not only partnered in business but have also become friends for a lifetime.
As ASIRT celebrates its 9th Anniversary, below are the Events, Programs and Achievements during these years –
