Your ethics matter
Ali Merchant believes that strong ethics are the foundation of success. According to him, the one most important value for all the entrepreneurs and professionals is this: Always stay true to who you are. Irrespective of your success or failure, always maintain your integrity in your journey. He believes integrity is all about doing the right thing even if it is inconvenient. He also adds that to create a good reputation you may take a lifetime, but you can lose it instantly! So we must strive to stay ethical.
He also believes that “A company’s success is not determined only by its impressive financial statements; in fact, success has a lot more to do with ethics-based management, culture, and business practices. This aspect eventually becomes a part of you and has a direct impact on your image in the market.” He advises all the young entrepreneurs and professionals to realize that there can be no compromise when it comes to ethics and there are no easy shortcuts to attaining success.
Have a purpose
AM Infoweb is posting consistent growth and profit every year and we asked him about the reason behind this success. He insists that the success of any company depends on the talent of attracting qualified people, but attracting talent is more than simply offering a good salary. People are driven by purpose. If you have a purpose, profit will follow.
At AM Infoweb, he implores his qualified professional team to understand what value they are providing. To explain his thought process better, he says, “Consider medical record retrieval, imagine a woman who is the breadwinner of the family, unfortunately, she got hurt and is now unable to work and support her family. Money to run the household is running out. She is dejected and desperate. She is seeking a disability claim, but only timely retrieval of the medical record can ensure that the person receives the benefits that she deserves. Thus, when we do our work right, it makes a huge difference in someone’s life.” This thought process has helped AM Infoweb to become a leader in Health Information Management Outsourcing.
Following Ali Merchant’s lead, every member of the AM Infoweb family is committed to adding value and making a difference through their professional expertise and commitment. He says, “We aim to reduce the operations cost of our clients so that they can pass on the benefits to their end-customers. Our mission is to make sure that medical insurance which means security for an individual, legal services which means justice for an individual, and medical facilities which means health for individuals is within reach of everyone who needs it. I believe these basic needs apart from food and shelter are everyone’s right and we are going to help make it so affordable that everyone can have it.”
Ali Merchant is leading his company and the industry by example. Driven by a beautiful and bold purpose. He aims to continue making a difference in the lives of everyone around him.
