Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over ... moremy Upwork (oDesk) profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk/Upwork tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio.

As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.

  • Market Research - Business Plan for new start-up

    Prasanna did an outstanding job of completing this task. I needed market research in an area that doesn't have a ton of data. He quickly understood my needs and came up with a treasure trove of information which I dearly needed. Prasanna did a great job of communicating where we were at in the assignment and keeping the task on schedule. I ended up asking him to research a few more things that were not in the original scope, so it took longer than I had previously hoped, but Prasanna did an excellent job of meeting all my needs in a timely fashion. I feel I got excellent quality for the price and I wiould use Prassana again.
