Atul Gupta always had the hunger of developing a product that would ensure seamless integrations and would transform the functions of the e-commerce world. As he took a step further towards fulfilling this dream, in 2005, he decided to venture into the IT world of Kolkata and focus and expand Atul Fin-Verse Ltd., an organization that already existed under him. This very organization, which initially started with 3 people in a group is what we now call InSync Tech-Fin Solutions Ltd.
With the want to establish themselves all over India as they started out, their proficiency in providing ERP solutions and custom applications bought waves of accomplishments and marked a 100% success rate over the next three years.
With an accomplishment of 450+ projects in their bag, an expansion in their working space and an increase in the number of meetings and projects, there was no looking back. With sheer dedication and determination, Atul decided to advance InSync’s journey which lead to the birth of a new product, SBOeCONNECT followed by the launch of NAVeCONNECT in the same year. These two products were designed to integrate leading ERP solutions, namely SAP Business One and Microsoft Dynamics NAV with a popular Ecommerce platform – Magento.
Soon, InSync became a leading player in the integration domain and gradually gained expertise in integrating various other business application. This led to the birth of APPSeCONNECT, InSync’s flagship product and the technological amalgamation of both SBOeCONNECT and NAVeCONNECT. It is an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) capable of connecting various applications (cloud and on-premise), technologies, data sources and automating business processes under one single platform.
With the motto of “We Connect, You Grow” at InSync, Atul achieved a customer base of over 1000 businesses in more than 75 countries and acquired with 150+ partners across the globe.
Apart from an integration solution, InSync has also managed to conquer the B2B e-commerce space with a feature-rich solution like B2BeCONNECT. This solution has managed to breakthrough by being equipped with offerings that a B2B seller can wish for, to delight a business buyer.
The journey of Atul and InSync has been full of ups, downs, success, patience, and perseverance. All these factors have equally contributed towards building InSync, piece by piece, and bringing them where they are today and where they will go tomorrow. Atul and his team at InSync strongly believes that connections are the way to grow and hence the organization continues to build powerful and long-lasting connections between applications, data, technologies, businesses and most importantly, people!
Atul decided to make his venture into the world of education with the belief and mission of making the youth “employable”. His motive of providing the kind of education that goes beyond books, led to the establishment of a brand-new institute of education- Inspiria Knowledge Campus.

Inspiria’s motive is to bridge the gap between the academia and industry.
As the Managing Trustee of Inspiria, Atul put his heart and soul into turning this educational dream nurtured by him and his father into success. Inspiria started out with 100 students in 2015 and now in the year 2020, consists of over 900 students and there is no looking back from here!
