As a further indication of its intention to strengthen its senior management team, mobile device automation solutions specialist Pervacio has appointed a new Head of Engineering and Certification.

Based at the company’s Global Innovation Centre in Bangalore, Aninda Chatterjee joined the company in October 2015 as a senior director in charge of certification.  He has now taken on additional responsibility for Pervacio’s engineering operation.

With a BSc Engineering degree from the BIT Sindri, Ranchi University, Aninda began his career with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).  He brings 25+ years of industry experience to his new role, including research and development and telecommunications software delivery management.

Aninda moved to Pervacio from Aricent Technologies, where he was Assistant Vice President of Engineering with responsibility for managing deliveries for a portfolio of programmes in the telecoms, digital media and smart energy sectors. He was also instrumental in setting up multiple Offshore Development Centres (ODC).

Certification is a unique value added proposition that Pervacio has created for its customers.  The company’s Revolution Device Management platform supports thousands of devices on some of the most advanced mobile platforms and each type of handset is thoroughly tested for system compatibility before being certified at Pervacio’s Global Innovation Centre in Bangalore.

As Head of Engineering and Certification, Aninda will take charge of device certification, providing strategic direction while also establishing best practice. One of his priorities is to expand and upskill the engineering team while also accelerating the company’s adoption of new technologies.

Commenting on the appointment, Pervacio’s CEO, Sanjay Kanodia, said: “As manufacturers continue to innovate, we must ensure we have the capabilities to scale up the certification side of our operation to deal with the diversity and growing number of devices on the market, and Aninda has the expertise to help us meet that challenge.  As our business grows and we develop market share globally, use of the latest technologies will reinforce our new product development capabilities, ensuring we remain customer-focussed and innovative.”
