Introducing X-96

The year is 2017, Xgrid has just started a new journey which is internally named as Xgrid 2.0. Our goal with this new journey is to harness the immense talent pool we have and diversify our service offerings. There is the apprehension of what is on the horizon, the excitement of what is next, and the most important ingredient – there is self-belief among each member of the Xgrid team.

Let’s fast forward to 2021.

As exciting as it sounds, it wasn’t easy, and looking back now, it’s been a rollercoaster of a ride. I can talk in-depth about our achievements over the past 4 years but I won’t – they are extensively covered in our annual newsletter. All I want to say is that during these four years, we won multiple awards, survived a pandemic (*surviving), grew our team, will soon be moving to our own office all while maintaining the exceptional service quality Xgrid is known for across continents (quite literally!).

Over the past four years, we have worked tirelessly to grow our service portfolio. An area that we have worked on behind the scenes is MarCom and Design solutions, one that integrates directly with our tech services stack. X-96 is the realization of that service segment, where we are now ready to go all out and showcase amazing work the Xgrid team has delivered over multiple projects.

X-96 is one of a kind MarCom and Design studio where we cover marketing, design, branding, technical writing, and web development solutions. We are in an immensely unique position as unlike a typical marketing agency, X-96’s team is an extension of the Xgrid team which is well versed in a wide array of cutting-edge tech stack technologies. By combining X-96 with Xgrid, this is a unique proposition, one that can cover the entire branding and development journey – from imagination to implementation.

At X-96, our goal is to use a dynamic approach to brand development and marketing, that revolves around a cohesive user experience. Over the past few years, we have had the chance to work for Silicon Valley startups, Fortune 500 organizations, and multiple global firms operating in various domains. Our breadth of market understanding is complemented by our depth of domain knowledge which has allowed us to deliver time and again for our clients.

Today is an exciting day where we at Xgrid are going live with X-96, our very own MarCom and Design wing. We have put together an online presence across popular social platforms (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube)  and developed a crisp website to showcase some of our work, www.xninetysix.com

Check out our website, and follow us on social to stay in touch. Drop us a line if you have a question or would like to see a demo in action. Connect with us for any request around MarCom and Design and we will be more than happy to help.

Welcome to 2021. Welcome to X-96.

Let’s have a quick look at what we have achieved in all three of our business verticals, together with our customers and partners:

Starting with the UI and Application Development, at Xgrid, we religiously follow the UI/UX philosophy of meeting the user requirements (to create Natural User Interfaces) by leveraging the power of a human friendly design created with the right blend of visual aesthetics. This has helped us in delivering branding solutions including interactive websites and customer portals complemented by a variation of animations and illustrations. We have also delivered a wide range of business critical technical softwares, visualization dashboards and complex network applications developed exclusively for all kinds of devices including desktop, tablets and mobile phones.

We lubricate the stories of our clients using strategies revolving around user experience best practices and desirable exploitation of images to generate noticeable illusion of their artifacts.

Xgrid has also delivered cloud migration services to a couple of organizations over the years to enable applications to derive benefits leveraging on the cloud. The end goal was to assist our customers with building a secure and scalable, well-architected application framework mounted on AWS to lower the expense of IT resources by improving productivity, operational resilience and manifesting the required business agility. With our subject-matter experts and AWS certified individuals we have served small and big enterprises from various business domains and market segments. A glimpse of these segments can be also seen in the pie chart.

With organizations now being aware of the business benefits of a sandbox environment, the demand for isolated testing environments has increased tremendously in the market. Xgrid was selected as a trusted service provider by one of the fortune 50 companies to deliver an on-demand, self-service simulation of their real world data center. The motive was to provide an isolated execution of a network environment that provides real time reflection of network behavior and an orchestrator to virtualize instances of the sandbox environment to accelerate the broad-based showcasing of their solution. The flexibility that came with it includes but is not limited to instant provisioning, hassle free deployment and 10x reduction in the sales cycle. Our eminent work on this project was also recognized at P@SHA ICT Awards Ceremony in which we bagged a gold in ICT Services Award across Pakistan, which helps Xgrid stand out in a highly competitive market.

All in all, 2019 has been a glorious year for Xgrid. Our highly trained and dedicated team of professionals bring an informed perspective to each challenge. We would like to take the opportunity to appreciate the Xgrid family for always maintaining high standards, for their persistence and their great sense of humor always lightening up the office environment. We aim to excel further by keeping the bar high and look forward to many such magnificent achievements in the upcoming years.
