Executive Interview
Raj Narayanswamy
Raj Narayanswamy
CEO, Replicon
Please introduce your product and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Replicon, the Time Intelligence company, has over 25 years of industry leadership, pioneering new approaches to time, project, and resource management. Our Time Intelligence platform elevates time as a strategic asset within an organization, to improve operational productivity, performance, and profitability. Replicon offers award-winning cloud-based solutions for enterprise time management, global time and gross pay automation, and includes complete solution sets for project time tracking for costing and billing, time & attendance, and workforce management.

Built on the Time Intelligence Platform, Replicon’s innovative Polaris product line introduces the world’s first self-driving solutions for Professional Services Automation and Project Portfolio Management, helping project-driven enterprises deliver increased revenue and profitability. Replicon’s team of over 500 employees supports thousands of customers around the globe including PwC, Siemens, FedEx, NTT, Expedia, Moody’s, SAS, Facebook, and Hyatt.

I am Raj Narayanaswamy. I co-founded Replicon with my wife Lakshmi in 1996. As Co-founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer, I am responsible for executing the company's strategic goals and leading corporate initiatives. I’m an active member of the high-tech business community and take a visionary approach to build software that solve complex problems around time for global businesses.
What was the objective behind coming up with this software?
My wife and I were working for different software companies in the early 1990s in Calgary when we decided to build a product of our own. We founded Replicon in 1996 and it was a spur-of-the-moment decision. We were young and just decided to go do it.

We started Replicon with the goal of building a workflow application. We envisioned a general-purpose platform where end-users could build their own applications quickly. However, that idea did not span out and we began doing some consulting work to support our venture. At that time we were filling out timesheets in order to track time and bill our clients. Lakshmi recommended that we automate the timesheet process that we were doing for our consulting work because it was an annoying process. That was the genesis of the product you see today.
How is your software beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other software alternatives available in the market?
At Replicon, we treat time as a strategic asset. Any company that operates without understanding time as an asset is wasting time. Optimizing time, treating time as a valuable asset, is a competitive advantage. Getting you there is a problem Replicon solves. Replicon is built for the IoT, mobile, cloud, social, and AI era.
