Built in Guyana: Joshua Kissoon Talks About The Rise of Techlify Inc.

Georgetown, Nov 21, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Ever since he was a child, Joshua Kissoon believed that someday his fascination with mobile phones, computers, and other tech gadgets, will lead him to create something innovative to bring a change to the world. As time passed, he felt that the more he interacted with different technological devices, the fonder his interests grew in paying considerable attention to them.

Recalling a moment in time that really sparked his childhood curiosity, Joshua expressed, "In 2002, I think I was eleven, one of my cousins sent me his old computer. I was so fascinated by it. The fact that we can use the computer, use the phone line, use a yap jack, and connect to the internet to make calls overseas and also play video games. I was really excited about the things you can do with computers."

Following the completion of a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Guyana, Joshua went on to start his master's degree at NIT Warangal during which he met another entrepreneurial classmate and started a company in Bangalore, India. Joshua later returned to Guyana due to family commitments and related that his motivation to start Techlify came from his experience with the company in Bangalore. Seeing fast-paced results and performance, he decided to end his tenure there and develop a tech-based company in Guyana. Now, fully equipped with an abundance of knowledge, practical skills and market versatility, he was determined to positively impact the local technological industry.

Recognizing both the challenges and growth opportunities that awaited, Joshua Kissoon, established Techlify Inc. in 2015."It was really the impact that motivated him. He noticed there was a massive need in Guyana and Techlify had solutions to solve it."

Furthermore, Joshua Kissoon noted that "Guyana has so much potential. We have a lot of opportunities to make an impact on our country through technology. Since Techlify started, the work has been around the business community, helping them move into the digital age of digitizing systems from paper-based systems, and putting business automation processes in place. Techlify is really helping businesses to become data-driven."

Today, Techlify Inc. provides custom software applications, software development and installations, and a few newly introduced support services. There are also mobile app developments, IT automation, enterprise and cloud solutions, and network and IT support services, which have benefited an extensive list of local businesses within Guyana.

"Apart from that, they have an internet service, which is a subsidiary company that is a non-profit company the way Techlify Inc. is, but more toward serving the Hinterland communities," Joshua shared. "So, it's an internet service in the border town of Lethem and the Brazilian border. It brings internet service from Brazil to Lethem and surrounding communities. That's actually one of the goals, by the end of 2025, to get internet to all Hinterland communities in Guyana," Joshua Kissoon stated.

Techlify continues to grow as an IT services company catering to the business of Tomorrow. It has an extensive portfolio of varied IT & Digital services. It aspires to enhance customer experience, rationalize costs, and accelerate revenue growth.

Techlify has won awards at BIZ X conference in the US for the Best IT Organization and the best business software 2020, and Joshua has got an award for Brand youth's 40 under 40 entrepreneurial awards from the Minister of State.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Nov 27, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser.
