MUMBAI : Kladana, a cloud-based ERP software solution for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) founded and headquartered in Moscow, Russia, has expanded its footprint in India. The company has established an office in Mumbai to enhance its operations in India. Since its expansion in India, Kladana is serving hundreds of SMEs in the country across categories and aims to expand this number to 1,000 in the next 2 years.

After successfully onboarding over 100,000 MSMEs worldwide and expanding operations in Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Belarus, Kladana strategically entered the Indian market. The Company’s expansion in India came at the back of an initial investment of $1.5 million. Kladana is currently active in 10 countries across the world with corporate infrastructure in Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and now India.

Founded and headquartered in 2007 in Moscow, Russia, by entrepreneurs Askar Rahimberdiev and Oleg Alekseev, with an initial funding of $200,000 from Estonian venture fund — Ambient Sound Investments, Kladana partners with various small to mid-sized manufacturing, wholesale, and e-commerce companies across Russia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and India. Kladana’s cloud ERP for SMEs includes essential modules tailored to D2C, manufacturing, and trading businesses, covering inventory, production, and sales management. The Russian SaaS company offers a quick start, seamless onboarding, and an easy-to-use interface. The ERP scales with the company’s growth, featuring affordable and flexible pricing — as per usage.

Kladana’s USP lies in offering advanced inventory management solutions with real-time stock visibility, optimized control, and reduced stockouts. Their sales management tools automate processes, enhance customer relationships, and streamline invoice generation. For manufacturing, Kladana improves workflows, ensures accurate cost tracking, and enhances delivery timelines. Additionally, their financial analysis features provide comprehensive reporting and analytics, offering valuable insights into business performance and aiding strategic decision-making.

The SaaS is fully ready to scale in India. In the next 2 years, the company aims to grow its customer acquisition by 10 times. According to Kladana, the Indian market could make it to the top-2 already by the end of this year.

Mr. Askar Rahimberdiev, Co-Founder of Kladana, stated “We have entered the Indian market with a long-term vision, recognizing its potential as a rapidly evolving and strategic region for Kladana’s growth. The expanding Indian economy, alongside the rise of e-paper workflows and digital services, makes it a promising market. We are confident that Kladana can greatly support Indian SMEs, especially D2C brands, in their production and direct sales endeavors. As a company, our focus is rapid expansion. In 2022, we opened a new office in Kazakhstan, followed by another in Uzbekistan in 2023 and now beginning to scale in India.”

“India’s MSMEs are pivotal to the country’s economic growth, and Kladana is dedicated to empowering them with tools that streamline processes, boost efficiency, and promote sustainable development. The country’s pro-business environment, especially for MSMEs, demonstrated through various initiatives and schemes, makes India an attractive market for us. Our cloud-based platform is tailored to meet the specific needs of Indian businesses, offering comprehensive features. Kladana’s user-friendly design and competitive pricing are designed to equip Indian entrepreneurs to automate their operations,” said Ms. Aleksandra Brovchuk, Director of Kladana in India.
