Singapore parent-tech company The Parentinc gains the leadership of Prasad Khasnis as its inaugural Chief Technology Officer. Khasnis is poised to bring a new era of innovation that will bolster the company’s mission to help 100 million parents have healthy pregnancies and raise healthy families.
Khasnis has two CTO feathers in his cap: he played the role of CTO at OLX Indonesia (via IT and software development company, Globant), and then as CTO of Indonesia’s leading car dealership platform Rajamobil.com.
As CTO in these companies, he succeeded in executing key projects, from introducing Rapid Prototype to improve go-to-market time and migrating to a global platform; to creating lasting impact by turning around mobile web performance and reducing redundancies in team performance.
According to Khasnis, as the CTO of The Parentinc, he will helm “all technology efforts across regions, ensuring that our users get the best experience when they use our products.”
He will also “bring in best practices and focus on technology innovation in building a tech organisation.” Khasnis’ long-term objective is to move to micro-architecture and transform The Parentinc’s tech hub, which is based in the company’s Mumbai office, from cost- to profit-centre. This entails process rethink, quality improvements via automation, and seeking out top tech talent.
The Parentinc’s flagship brand, theAsianparent, is the world’s highest-rated parenting app and Southeast Asia’s largest content and community platform for parents reaching 35 million users monthly.
The Parentinc also owns and operates Mama’s Choice, an award-winning direct-to-consumer brand that manufactures and retails safe, natural, and Halal pregnancy, nursing, baby care, and household products that are designed and tested in Singapore for families in Asia.
Recently, the company acquired Vietnam’s largest community platforms for women and mothers, Webtretho and Bé Yêu.
