"We wanted to make one's life easier by making the entire utility problem solved under one umbrella with just one click. Providing such complicated business model in simple format was the biggest challenge. Initially, we faced a lot of problem due to weak Internet connectivity & less usage of technology by suppliers, but over a period of time, it got normal. Providing a secured environment for such huge volume was the biggest challenge. Innovation & everything-is-possible are key pointers which played a vital role in the growth of Multilink," said Mr. Chirag Shah, CEO-Multilink World.
