Foreign firms, keen on doing business with Indian Defence, will find Zen Technologies Limited an ideal offset partner.
Zen is a prime contractor to the Indian Army. It has supplied ICV BMP 2 Driving and Anti-Tank Guided Missile simulators to the army. Zen is also one of the licensees of the Ministry of Defence (MOD).
Zen has rich experience in procurement process and will be able to guide a new entrant away from the common pitfalls generally encountered, starting from Request for Indent ( RFI ), Installation of simulator to payment realization.
The process of procurement (under DPP) takes about 3 years, sometimes more. During the process, close interaction with the Defence is required to find out the exact requirements of the product. The product needs to comply with all the features stated in Request for Proposal (RFP). Non-compliance of even one, even if it is minor, could lead to the rejection of product.
Zen has systems in place that drastically reduce the cost of production, customize product for Defence, and ensure compliance of all the RFP requirements that leverage the chance of winning the order.
Zen’s in-house Research and Development (R&D) division, which is certified by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India (GOI) takes care of the customization part of the product.
Zen’s other valuable assets are its software, electronics, optics and mechanical divisions, system engineering and project management which can fully utilized by off-shore OEMs during up-gradation, life extension, engineering, design, testing, defence-related software and quality assurance service of the products.
