Novus Global Solutions is a North
Brunswick, N.J.-based professional
consulting services firm founded by
Managing Partner Sushrut Shrotri
with a single mission: to build an
onsite consulting model that delivers
consulting services at a speed and
quality unheard by offshore firms
at a total cost cheaper than offshore
and drive consulting back onshore.
“We have a unique onsite consult-
ing model trusted by giants such as
SAP, Merck, Smith & Nephew and
many more is not only effective but
efficient. Novus has expanded its
anti-offshore model from the U.S.
into Brazil, UK, Hungary and Singa-
pore,” says Shrotri. With a phenom-
enal 849 percent growth rate, Novus
Global Solutions was ranked No. 3
on our Fastest Growing Firms list.
Consulting caught up with Shrotri
to discuss Novus’ financial perfor-
mance and growth.
Consulting: What were the
main factors that contributed
to your exceptional growth?
Shrotri: Novus launched a unique
consulting model that delivers onshore consulting services using local residents at a total cost lower
than offshore. Our ability to continue to stick to this model has led
to this growth. The other key element of our success is our operating
model, which was designed from
the ground up to be a 100 percent
paperless firm with optimized process and cloud based systems that
complement the processes. The
operating business model is flexible and scalable and adapts rapidly
based on the needs of the firm.
Consulting: How is 2015
shaping up for your firm?
Shrotri: Our growth in 2015 is at the
same pace as the previous years—
100 percent year-on-year growth.
Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook
for 2016? Where do you see
the most opportunities?
Shrotri: Companies are tired of
paying millions of dollars to off-
shore companies with minimal de-
livery that often requires rework
and many U.S. and European com-
panies are on the brink of survival
due to failed projects. We see tre-
mendous opportunity at home and
across the globe.
Consulting: What do you see
as the biggest challenges for
your firm in 2016?
Shrotri: Many companies are still
stuck in the 20th century mindset
that offshore is cheaper than onshore. They know that offshore
model has delivery, quality and
consistency issues but are afraid
to take the risk of changing out of
the model into a new model. We
are “Creating Change” and have to
be persistent on this path and look
forward for partners such as ALM
and Consulting magazine to help us
promote the model that will assist
us in driving the change.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean
to your firm, your employees
and your clients?
Shrotri: It is a strange feeling when
you keep running against the crowd
knowing that you are right. My team
has believed in my belief and this
recognition is going to make others
believe in our belief. We are truly
honored to have made it to No. 3 in
the Fastest Growing Firms list.
