We wished you a good morning! 

2022 was the year we published our first newspaper ad in Economic Times. 

Economic Times Ad

A fresh new (out)look!

With our Hompage getting a new makeover – Homepage 2.0, we call it internally! – we welcomed 1190% more website visitors than in 2021. 


Now we can walk around more! 

Just as bigger homes get us excited, we expanded to a bigger office space this 2022. 


Our logo collection hit a new high!

In 2022, we onboarded five new customers and 200 active suppliers.   


Twice as big, double the fun! 

Our team, no, our family became 2x times bigger in 2022. 

Also, we had truckloads of fun throughout the year through various fun activities.

Employee activities

      • Hack Attack 2022 – Our yearly coding competition where members from all teams join together to create a viable/deployable feature, or even come up with novel product ideas related to procurement and supply chain. And boy, we wish you were there to see their pitches.
      • Thanksgiving 2022 – We celebrated thanksgiving 2022 with a potluck where everyone bought tasty treats and delicacies. We had a full-tummy and fulfilling Thanksgiving. 
      • Walkathon – All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. In today’s world play here loosely translates to some form of exercise. At Zumen, we take our employees’ health seriously and in this regard, we conducted a Walkathon competition where the team with the highest number of steps wins. And this did not stop there, our employees are also participating in the Chennai Marathon this 2023. 
      • Cross-cultural Training – An interactive, informative, and introspective session that was empowering and eye-opening. It taught us to be sensible, aware, and respectful of the multicultural ecosystem we thrive and depend. We will carry these learnings throughout and outside the workplace. 
      • Fun Fridays – Fridays are for fun, right? At Zumen, we adopted it literally by conducting fun games and providing delectable snacks.

Breaking the barriers!

Our team worked tirelessly and upgraded our product for seamless integrations with multiple ERPs such as:

      • MS Dynamics
      • ECC6
      • Oracle
      • Windchill
      • Zoho Books


Beefing up our core!

We’ve added new features to our product arsenal, such as:

      • Bill of Material (BoM) Comparison – Now users can effectively compare BoMs of two similar products and analyze the differences based on the feature, cost, and factors impacting the supply chain process.
      • Product Costing  – With this feature, product manufacturing organizations get a comprehensive yet simple way to compare part lists and BOMs. 
      • Custom Fields – Users can now add or customize the fields in the transactional pages such as the RFx process and PO.
      • Material Control  – With this feature users can create, manage, and track multiple shipments for a Purchase Order (PO). 
      • Stage-Gate Control for New Product Development process – Cost is a key factor that needs to be reviewed at every stage gate. So to ensure control of time, cost, and quality, our software allows the distinction of various stages in the new product development process separated by management decision gates, also referred to as stage gates.
