We competed against some well-known brands from around the world such as DHL Express, Flextronics, McDonalds and SMRT Singapore. To have won from amongst this distinguished industry giants is a great demonstration of the hard work and dedication of the H-Connect Team to become a world-class shared services solutions provider."

Today, it is acknowledged as one of the fastest growing Finance and Accounting Outsourcing entities in Sri Lanka and is reputed for its wide client base spanning multiple countries.

Hirdaramani Group Director Akshay Hirdaramani said the decision of the Hirdaramani Group to make the transformation to a centralised finance and accounting system was a tall undertaking, given the diverse nature of our business. Our 100+ years of established processes, 20+ factories and multiple industry segments certainly did not make it an easy task for the H-Connect Team.
