Ramon Acland is a 40 year old entrepreneur who has been running his own IT company based in London, England for the past 7 years now. Most of the engineers working at his company are Asians, including from Pakistan, India, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. Ramon says that he is astonished to see how hard working and smart the Asians are, but they aren’t as much conscious about their diet and health as their British counterparts. Ramon says that if they eat right they don’t exercise hard and when they exercise hard, they don’t feel like coming to work, etc.
Ramon’s company only creates and sells its own software products only, that’s what the company is involved in only presently. The company used to provide IT services and Business Process Outsourcing to other companies around the world as well but Ramon says that providing such services is full of stress and headache and doesn’t bring in enough profits due to intense competition and the competitors from Eastern Europe and Asia being able to provide the same services at almost half the price to the clients which left Ramon with no chance but to stop providing those services. Ramon’s company didn’t have many repeat clients either and their services were mostly preferred by the Insurance and Retail Chain companies, which are already too low in numbers and usually prefer dealing with the same company.
Ramon’s company also lets others license their softwares and sell the same at whatever prices they would like to.
