I started off my career as an engineer building warehouse management systems used by Fortune 1000 companies. This work involved integrating tools and techniques from enterprise resource planning (ERP), financial solutions, electronic data interchange (EDI) partners, and more.
After working for two years with these larger enterprises, I found myself wanting to engage more closely with customers to better help them realize their goals. To that end, I began working at a start-up that built a cloud-based warehouse management solution for smaller enterprises. Although I worked closely with the small enterprises, I still wanted to be more involved in the business side of providing solutions. With my technical expertise and desire to interface directly with customers, Brahmin Solutions was born in 2015.
Brahmin Solutions began as a consulting company after I struggled to help my family run their food production business efficiently. Solutions on the market I could recommend were challenging to implement, costly, and lacked support. Even after using the best solutions available, my family business was still managing some of the operations on spreadsheets. I reached out to similar companies and almost always they were facing the same issue.
With my experience in building complex solutions for large enterprises, I knew I could make a cost-effective solution for smaller businesses that managed end-to-end operations, from purchasing to sales.
For the next two to three months, I talked to other experts and businesses to learn about their needs, and from there, I began building a solution that would address those needs. With a bare-bones (pre-beta) product, I reached out to a few companies I had consulted with previously and had them try it out.
After months of testing and hiring a small team in the fall of 2018, I launched our beta version to a handful of customers. It was immediately evident how much the solution helped the customers, even with the bugs inherent in any beta run. My team and I worked tirelessly to address issues, taking care to really understand how we could best improve the user experience. With the launch of our live product in 2020, all the customers who participated in the beta run signed on.
No longer just a consulting firm, Brahmin Solutions was born.
