It All Began When…
Our journey from a products company to offering white label website design services to enterprises is an interesting one.
When vSplash launched in 1999, building a website was complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. A corporation with deep pockets could afford it—but it was unthinkable for a small business to own a website. There was an overwhelming demand from SMBs that wanted an online presence. In fact, there was too much demand and too little bandwidth; those were the days of dial-up Internet. The market simply couldn’t support vSplash’s technology.
What Umesh Tibrewal, founder and CEO of vSplash, learned in those early years has served him well in the 24 years since: to succeed, you have to fall in love with the challenge, not the solution. The big picture challenge was to make websites affordable and uncomplicated for small and medium-sized businesses. With that in mind, vSplash pivoted.
In 2003, vSplash let go of their platform—but they didn’t give up on their goal to make websites accessible for SMBs. Long story short, Umesh turned the product company into a services company. These days, there’s Wix, Squarespace, Weebly—and there’s no doubt something entirely new on the horizon that will come into play within the next year. The exceptionally skilled team at vSplash understood the importance of white label website design that ensures the growth of a small business and enhances client retention rate. As a platform-agnostic company, vSplash can now build on any platform an SMB wants, and that’s key in the mission to help companies that empower SMBs to launch online.
We live in a digital world, and for small businesses to succeed, they have to have a good-looking and functional website to be competitive. Small businesses are the bread and butter of every community, and they power the global economy. People put their hearts into their small businesses, and vSplash delivers every website with purpose and passion—because every website launch makes a difference to a person, and a community, and of course the companies that take them up as clients.
