We aim to help smallcase capitalize on these advantages and strengthen its market position.”
In addition to their work with fintech clients, KraftPixel has a lesser-known history of contributing their effort to social good initiatives. Among multiple such initiatives, they have collaborated with the Maharashtra State Election Commission to optimize their voter search engine, enhancing accessibility and efficiency for users. In the outcome of this project, the tool built by KraftPixel managed around 9,000 simultaneous visitors on local body poll days, demonstrating their technical capabilities and commitment to social responsibility.
