About Ricasi Consultancy Ltd

The idea for starting Ricasi Consultancy was conceived in 2007 when the founder, operating a small enterprise, noted a dire need for quality, cost effective, integrated and best fit support solutions to help his SME operate efficiently and gain a competitive edge so it could not only survive past the two year mark but maintain sustainable growth. The journey that began for us as a quest to solve our personal needs, led us to deliver valued solutions that anticipate and satisfy our clients strategic and operational needs through our 3-D process. We started our operations as a sole proprietorship in 2007 that was later incorporated to a private limited company in September 2015.
