During the past few years the world has experienced unprecedented advancements in technology. Laptops, smartphones and tablets are everywhere with technology forever changing the way the world communicates and conducts business.
A recent analyst of technology usage indicates that there are more than 1.5 billion PCs in use around the world and that the number of smartphones in use worldwide will exceed that number in early 2014. At present, one out of every five people in the world own a mobile device.
Shoppers love the convenience of using their mobile device to shop online. It is easy to compare prices, online shopping saves money and gas and with a mobile device consumers can shop from anywhere with an Internet connection. The Internet provides choices and allows the consumer to shop for goods and services around the globe. In 2012, e-commerce or mobile sales worldwide surpassed the trillion-dollar mark, with 2013 sales exceeding $1,298 trillion.
As e-commerce shopping expands, more and more “brick and mortar” stores are adding an online store to serve their clients. That is where Tej Kohli, a recognized leader in Internet technology since its inception, has made such a huge impact.
Tej Kohli is an international businessman and philanthropist, with a diverse portfolio of commercial and charitable operations in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and India.

Still privately owned by Mr. Kohli, Grafix Softech has a turnover of several hundred million dollars, and employs just over 500 people worldwide.
India born Tej Kohli, also known for his savvy Internet marketing skills and web site design services, has built an enviable reputation as “a-one-stop” solution for both large and small businesses seeking to establish a strong online Internet presence.
