We’ve Made it Big!

 by Mohan Ramkumar  on   09 Jul 2012

We’ve made it big, again! Tenmiles is now almost twelve years old, yet, it’s as vibrant and agile as a startup. From a single person outfit that operated out of the spare bedroom of our founder’s home to becoming one of the hottest software products company in India based out of the heart of Chennai, we’ve come a long way.

HelpdeskPilot is our champion and is a market leader right off the gate. HappyFox is about to hit the 2000 customer mark and it’s not even a year since launch. Wonderful Day is kicking up a storm in the iOS app store. We don’t usually like to brag, but it’s nice to cherish our conquests once in a while.

It’s the passion and fire in people behind the ideas that matter and nothing else. Here we are, a bootstrapped company working from a boutique, downtown office competing head on with well funded companies from Silicon Valley and elsewhere. Thanks to our constant obsession to build World class products backed by top notch customer support, we’ve drafted a ton of wonderful people. Naturally, our team has outgrown the space we currently operate from.

After scouting around the metropolis for many months, we finally zeroed in on a mammoth space that’s six times the size of our current office. Our new address is in Guindy (Thiru Vi Ka Industrial Estate) which fits right into our ethos of staying connected and accessible. A ten minute walk from the train station has made a lot of folks to switch to public transport for the first time. Go green!

After an impassioned speech by our fearless leader, we made the move on the afternoon of July 4. Swanky white tables adorn the floor and the rest of the space will house our a mini gym, ping pong table, game consoles, and a trampoline (not really!). Here are some pics from our new, not so humble abode!
