Everest 100 Top IT Companies in Nepal 2012

Everest T00 Top IT Companies

The wait is over! The result of the first ever survey of IT companies in Nepal is out.  We officially have the list of 100 Top IT companies in Nepal.  Out of the 100, the top 10 list is based on survey results combined with popular voting. The ranking of the remaining 90 is based solely on voting.

The Background

An open voting forum was posted on a popular blog, EverestUncensored.Org in February 2012 with a list of 100 companies. Requests for adding companies to that list came from different parts of the country and a further 33 companies were added. The soaring interest in and enthusiastic responses to the list inspired us to start a new ranking site and a fresh voting was started in EverestList.org in May 2012.  Then, we felt the need for undertaking a survey of the companies to arrive at a fairer ranking based on various parameters and not just on popular voting. Our partner Deerwalk Institute of Technology coordinated the survey on our behalf.

The Survey

The survey questionnaires were designed to get basic information related with a software firm without getting into confidential ‘core corporate information’. Some of the information collected were: Number of Employees, Working Days, Work Hours, Average Salary, Provident Fund, Gratuity, Medical Benefits, Pickup/Drop Facility, Canteen Facility/Subsidy, Stock Options, Internet Connectivity, Internet Backup, Power Backup, Business Continuity, Business Model, etc.

The Ranking

Ranking for the top 10 was based on the following weights: Survey Results (70%); EverestList Voting Results (20%); EverestUncensored Voting Results (10%). Ranking for the remaining 90 was based on the following weights: EverestList Voting Results (50%); EverestUncensored Voting Results (10%).

The Results

Verisk Information Technologies, formerly D2HawkeyeServices, has emerged as the top IT company in Nepal for the year 2012.  Congratulations! Incidentally, this company has the highest number of employees in the IT industry in Nepal. Verisk Information Technologies is a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics, Inc, USA.

Deerwalk Services has taken the second position. Although a relatively young company, Deerwalk is one of the fastest growing companies in Nepal and is building various products targeting the US Healthcare industry. Deerwalk Services is a subsidiary of Deerwalk, Inc, USA.

BrainDigit IT Solution has secured the third position. Interestingly, this company too happens to be relatively young company. BrainDigit IT Solution is a subsidiary of BrainDigit Technologies Corporation, Canada.

Final Note

We would like to thank all the participating companies and the public in helping us arrive at this list. We would like to assure you that this competition is not in favor of any particular company and is solely an initiative to bring some light to the IT space in Nepal. It has been an arduous task to compile all data but, at the same time, we are excited by the responses we have had.

Come next year, we are confident that Nepalese IT firms will reach greater heights and we will also see emergence of new companies in our top list. And, finally, we were pleasantly surprised to find, during the course of the entire exercise, that this Everest 100 List happens to be the most comprehensive compilation of IT Companies in Nepal – something that never existed before.

    • “BrainDigit, Big Idea Comes Naturally”, founded in 2008, is a team of IT professionals who have developed Content Management System named “SageFrame” based on Microsoft Platform.They are among the best-known web application developers in Joomla (PHP) for our quality products and competitive pricing. In the due course of time, Braindigit has grown up to include web application development in Dot Net framework, Ruby on Rails and mobile platforms (Android, iOS and windows phone). In order to cope with the changing needs and type of work BRAINDIGIT consists of three subsidiaries namely- Gobingoo.com, Cssbingo.com and Sageframe.com. Furthermore, Cssbingo is engaged in developing irresistible templates, mainly for Braindigit’s products namely Listbingo, SageFrame, AspxCommerce and mobile apps.
      Braindigit is also running Web Road Show to encourage IT students to build their webpage to completion in various colleges. They are collaborating with Microsoft Innovation Center Nepal to provide training free cost for IT and Engineering Students.I am not an advertiser of BrainDigit but a student who learnt lots from them free of cost. I don’t think there are IT companies in Nepal providing free additional courses for IT Students to cover-up gap in between Nepali Academic Certification and Professional life.These may be the reasons why it is in top three position i think.

      • Lwaal … last hasaucha yaar … Yomari jasko turnover minimum 7-10 crores huncha tyo chai 6th ma ani BrainDigit chai 3rd ma? TOIT … aile I just started a new company named Everestlist Baulayo Pvt Ltd. It is on rank #1.

  1. I think it must be based on the turnover the company makes. If the surveyor do analysis from the data from Inland Revenue or Tax Office, exact ranking will come.

  2. Dear all,
    I think some of good companies are missing and some of results are really laugh making :)
    Results are overall ok but not the exact based on ????

  4. SCT in 78???
    Codemandu in 82??????

    Your are a lazy , half-filled vessel……. do your research right….I know you for that company in the third place with a weird name……

    Go get some sleep dude ..and please dont make such bullshit rankings…..

  5. This is totally crap. Either the voteout was biased . People begging for votes in their circle specially through facebook. Guys at the other companies didn’t even know about the voting or didn’t care about.

    Please don’t post these kind of biased statistics.

  6. Please vote for creativity. Almost all of the companies above didn’t even bring a genuine idea of their own. They either implemented what was already there in foreign countries specially USA and thought they had brought something new. If you think you are good enough bring something novel and good for the people not just for the company just like Sprout did, then you are something.

    These companies like verisk health, deerwalk etc they are money oriented, investing only in lucrative projects. I do appreciate the fact that they provide employment opportunities to so many young IT professionals. But be creative guys. It’s something that our country needs a lot.

  7. It is a joke. This should have at least considered the following things.
    1. Number of employees.
    2. Salaries to employees.

  8. People, lets appreciate the effort. I have been in the industry for last 17 years and for the first time I now know the list of major players in the IT field. I tried getting the list from CAN but failed time and time again. These guys have done a great job. Lets accept it. Agree, ranking wise, there’s definitely a lot of room for debate.

    So why not make use of this forum to say why a certain company needs to be up in the list. The criteria for selection has been clearly mentioned – so we can easily make our point based on those criterion measures. Quite frankly, this is something I was looking for ages and appreciate this endeavor of DWIT or Deerwalk. ( Is it the same or different? )

  9. there were like hundreds of emails requesting to fill the form and submit but it was not even official. We even dont know why this survey is being done and for what purpose. We completely ignored the requests. The list is really a big laugh out and people should really have an objective and ultimately a sensible reason if there are that concerned to publish the list. THis is a total nonsense…………

  10. This shows employee of company’s such as Verisk, Deerwalk are found doing all this sort of cheap publicity activity. Does this survey even matter, it’s like Miss India winning the multimedia award just because she was asked to vote by her fellow countrymen… laughing stock you are!

  11. This is a real biased survey conducted by Deerwalk affiliation. They don’t even have proper data. Due to lack of participation, they have included companies that are not even in IT industry. They have included graphics and animation studios in their list. It just shows their lack of knowledge in the IT industry. What a shame. Will do anything to hi-light their intentions.

  12. asmita, which is ur company, could you not fill the list ? you have not even mentioned ur company, why hiding details

  13. Nikesh / Amita and others– why is this huge negative uproar here. Please write about your company, it will be added next year. This is an annual list. This is our first attempt and we apologize for any error here. We tried hard. But companies were not cooperating with us. Purpose of this list is to help students and job hunters in Nepal to find right companies for them. No wonder, Deerwalk and Verisk are on the top. Who can challenge them, please name one. Let us learn to appreciate this free work.

  14. Looking at the above comments, it appears things work in two extremes. Either one feels that his/her company should be right on top of the list or should not feature at all! In a way that’s obvious.

    As far as free publicity is concerned, I do not think Nepalese IT companies are nowhere near where surveys like these studies matter. But then shouldn’t this free flow of information start somewhere? The very reason company like Verisk is at top is because they have nothing to hide and is open to sharing information unlike many others. I agree that voting alone is the most inappropriate way of ranking but what do you do with companies that have are not even registered and maintain two books of accounts for obvious reasons. A good reasoning on behalf of any company might help promote the company OR else for the lack of any similar reference this LIST will be referred by many in days to come.

    Hence I absolutely agree with the moderators of EverestList when they say the information is to help everyone starting with a fresh graduate who may not have any idea of the industry to someone who wants to make a switch. So, unless there’s a substantial reasoning on your part – its nothing more than casual/reckless remark that wont mean a thing. So lets do it in a way that helps, and of course if you really can make a case for whatever you say – something like Braindigit did and that helped me understand what they do! Lets not loose this opportunity and try rise above all our inherent hypocrisy.

    Btw, I work in a company which is not even registered at all and I do make money in Euros working in a team of 15! In that manner I have a choice of making a case that my company needs to right on top ( productivity / ROI / Output per Engineer) but I wont! Neither will I dare say this entire list is a ‘joke’. No I won’t.

  15. The list is really funny. Looks like whichever company sent the mandatory circular to its employee to vote for, got into the list and others did not make it.

    It misses out very good companies in top 10 while few of the very odd ones to the top 10 list. For example: Braindigit, Yomari, Cad Nepal, Janaki Technology, Eval Technology will never make to top 10 if you make a fair analysis from any of the dimension that you would like to set for the research.

    Just vote count does not comply to qualify for top list, if it does, it will always keep on pointing to some misleading information like this.

  16. I never sent any circular to staff to vote for; I made just humble request to vote.

    Yomari always pays tax, just hide bit of it.

    We have very large income from black and white businesses; so we really give a damm shit how much the software business make.

  17. As John said we dont see itechnepal dot com in this list, so Admin, any vision to have another list by side who were not able to send us their nominations

  18. i read all the comments and reply above,Me Bishal Goley is new comer in this field,i judge above comments in three aspects, 1.Gathering of IT professional 2.Advantages of Everest list 2.Drawbacks .

    Gathering of IT Professionals:-
    most interesting moment i saw is the all the IT experts , Senior Programmers, visited this site and expressed their views about the IT companies of Nepal,Is there any possibility that all of u gather together like this,and is there any plate form that assembles all the views of IT Professionals,coz in my view the IT professionals are those person after being experts or senior level developer , who gives damn to each other,all professionals have own business ,own strategy , own life , there is no possibilities of giving concern about other , think about others, just they have unique lifestyles, i suggest that if we are crazy in this business then we have to think that all the professional be together to achieve common benefits, In the aspect of gathering all the IT professional is good one.

    2.Advantages of this list is that at the beginner as me it is advantages over me as , how can i find 100 IT company on my own , do i know all the company name , address , how can i find 100, it is almost hard to find out 100 company on my own , this is good that i can visit the 100 company then , i can decide here where i’m going ,i have own desire that i do not interested to go top 10 company of nepal,achieving information about the IT companies in this aspect it is good list.

    3.Drawbacks:-as mentioned above 70% result was survey , it means survey carries 70% decision but the question is was it fairly done?,Is the survey carry 70% weights??,how the voting can decide the strength of the IT Company? not only for the IT Company how about the IT college? voting can decide which college is good or bad ,the technique of voting is never have fair results , its basic natures is unfair , so admin if u are very interested on this , you should only keep the survey 100%,survey should be covers ,No. of employees,overall Transaction of the Year,Excellency of Software they Produced,Customer view using that companies software,mobilizing new Technology,salary benefits to the Programmers,IT professionals,being the part of the company the view of the software developer as they satisfied or not, these are the basic survey strategy be followed out, for this big human resource is needed,then one thing in next year survey u should include remaining all the software companies of the Nepal, then the comments above are filled with thanks , thank u very much,great job etc

  19. I’m amazed to view your list of IT Companies in Nepal. You’ve just scrambled over the companies here and there. And this is not the correct list, i suppose. You’ve not listed many other software companies those with growing standards and clients.
