Let’s learn more about Scienlabs Technologies and the views of Khizar Ahmed on digital security below.
Explain the background of you and the company in detail.
Currently, I am the CEO of Scienlabs Technologies. I am also the former CEO of TechVault Pte Ltd, where I worked till 2021. I am an expert in my field with forward and positive thinking. I am always keen to make my company the leading one in the UAE.
Scienlabs Technologies was founded in 2018, and its headquarter is located in Dubai, UAE. We established Scienlabs to fight against all online digital frauds and provide our partners and end-users with a safe and secure platform.
Currently, we have developed 3 products named FRAUS PROTECT, i-Witness, and Scam-scan with extraordinary features of real-time video recording, heat map, easy integration, etc. We are working with more than 25 partners in 10 different countries.
We started this organization with 4 employees, and now we have 30+ members in our organization and still counting.
What are your goals?
Our goal is to make Scienlabs a brand, which means that the customers must be able to recall our organization and its products/services. We want them to feel a positive connection with our organization, which can help in combating against all online frauds and gives a secured and trustworthy business environment to all our partners and clients.
What do you feel is the biggest strength of yourself/company right now?
Our technical expertise is the main arm and biggest strength of the company. Due to technical expertise, We have developed few advanced features. We can proudly say that we are the first company to develop these features in the current market compared to Other competitors. Furthermore, positive feedback from existing clients towards these features keeps us motivated to make our Anti-Fraud solution effective and secure.
What was the path you/your company took to get to where you are today?
When Scienlabs began in 2018, the only path we used to create awareness was using our own network. As we started getting new clients, in parallel, we were working on our product to make it the most secured and trusted Anti-Fraud solution in the market. Moreover, timely feedback from our partners always motivated us to add new advanced features and enhance the existing solutions.
However, our most effective form of finding new customers has been word of mouth, as our satisfied customers always seem to know at least one person who can also benefit from our products.
Why did you start (or want to be the head of) this company?
The idea for my company came to me when I noticed an increase in digital online frauds in the past years where end-users are getting targeted for their hard-earned money. Losing money makes people devastated, and they end up with no solution for this. I also learned about the same problem from my family members and friends who were targeted in the past. Then I got the feeling of creating a solution where companies can detect and stop fraud at the initial level. Hence, I took the opportunity to develop an Anti-Fraud Solution that detects and stops the fraud and raises the alarm at the same time.
What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In the Digital World, most fraud victims feel shy and embarrassed to inform others or don’t know how to log their issues due to a lack of awareness and understanding.
Awareness is the biggest challenge that needs solutions to cope with fraud problems. Many people lose hope to get their hard-earned money back as they find no solution for their problem even after lots of processes or long procedures.
Elderly & uneducated people are easy targets for fraudsters as they are not familiar with new digital advancements. So, we are providing a platform where all kinds of digital frauds will be blocked at the initial stage and give all our users and partners a safe, secure environment.
Give us one word that describes you the best.
What makes you excited about Mondays?
Monday is best like any other day in my life. I feel extremely refreshed and optimistic for every new day. I am always excited for a new day full of enthusiasm and motivation, which helps me face new challenges in work.
What do you value most about your culture and vision?
We mainly focus on our services, employees and customers. I feel it’s essential to continuously improve and find ways to meet customers’ needs while upholding its values and ethics. I also believe that a positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and enhances the retention of the workforce. Job satisfaction, collaboration, and work performance are all enhanced. Most importantly, our vision is to create awareness and lead a better life without online frauds for all.
Tell us about a project that forced you to be innovative and creative.
At Scienlabs, the advanced fraudulent activity made by fraudsters forces us to be more creative. We are in a leapfrogging race with fraudsters. In this field, we should think one step ahead of them, which makes us innovative. We at Scienlabs are proactively creating a platform where all our partners and users feel secure and safe in the Digital world.
What are your company’s strategies, and how do they stand unique from your competitors?
There are a few different strategies here below:
- We believe in ‘Don’t just be better – Be different.’
- Deliver extraordinary customer service
- Understand & address customer’s pain point
- Innovation is the key to our success
- Powerful competitive pricing
- Our working culture and values
Our innovation helps us stand differently and uniquely from other competitors in the market. We recently launched real-time video recording and Heat-map features in our Anti-Fraud solution, making us different from others. None of the partners is providing this feature in the market.
What are the key values that helped you overcome the roadblocks/challenges in your career? Tell us something about your memorable incident in your leadership?
At Scienlabs, being focused and persistent towards problems helped me overcome challenges and create more opportunities. In my previous company, we had faced the worst situation in terms of net profit. Our company performance and revenue were going down every month. Then, I encouraged our team and their working capabilities. After some time, our company’s reputation and overall performance started getting improved. So, we as a team grew together and overcame big numbers.
Khizar Ahmed , How do you see the company changing in two years, and how do you see yourself creating that change?
We look forward to being globally known as the best services in the digital web world by improving & adding new features, creating new clients each day with 100% satisfactory results. Moreover, we aim to make the clients aware of and be ready for technological changes and safety solutions for themselves and their friends and acquaintances.
Where is your leadership going? What benefits do your clients get from your company in this competitive world?
I will say, “A good leader should always …” and how we finish this sentence could reveal a lot about our leadership style. In my view, to become good leaders tomorrow, we need to know where we stand today.
I usually make decisions based on each team member’s input or client’s feedback. Although I take the final call, each employee has an equal say on a project’s direction. I believe in this type of leadership, i.e., taking suggestions from others and making my own final decision.
It allows all level employees to exercise the authority they’ll need to use wisely in future positions they might hold. It also resembles how decisions can be made in meetings. Furthermore, when we make decisions based on discussions with our clients and employees, it definitely helps our clients’ business and improves their ROI. Additionally, such a method focuses on providing equal opportunity for all employees and staff to handle any situation.
