Achiever's Success Story

Accelerating API-led business growth

Companies undertaking digital transformation recognize APIs as the building block of modern software. To meet the ever changing and increasing demand from these digital transformations taking place, API tools and services are also evolving.


After observing API teams across different organizations struggling with identical problems, the founders of Apiwiz felt the need for a solution. Realizing that mature players were addressing only a piece of the puzzle, provided the required motivation to seize the opportunity by foraying into this segment. However, it’s not simply a question of cherry picking from the different software tools already in use! It’s also a tremendous opportunity to take it to the next level, by enabling a strategic approach.

They built towards the following goal – “One place. One solution. One view of your cross-organizational strategy.” Consequently, Apiwiz equips businesses in the API economy with the unrivaled capability to execute a strategic vision for managing and monetizing APIs.”

The passion of their founders resulted in the formation of a great experienced engineering team that has built APIwiz, an enterprise grade low-code, technology-agnostic API management platform (APIM) that helps enterprises scale securely. APIwiz platform harnesses the full value of APIs across heterogeneous environments, disparate architectures, and multiple gateways or service mesh. APIwiz’s integrated control plane allows to Plan & Design, Build & Manage, Test & Deploy, and finally Publish & Monitor all in one place.

Their mission is to help businesses better manage value creation of automated customer-centric services by streamlining the process of developing, building and running APIs. APIwiz has a Customer-First approach, that ensures their customers stay ahead of their competitors by offering API-led differentiated experiences to their end-users. This leads to end-users creating memorable experiences. As a result, the digital transformation champions in organizations are able to improve business KPIs like faster ‘Time-to-Market’, accelerate API-led innovation to enhance CX, create new revenue streams, improve collaboration with ‘Single Stheirce of Truth’, enhance API security and reduce ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ of API-initiatives.

The product has garnered good customer mindshare across the globe in a short time period. Today, they service multiple customers across various verticals around the globe like some niche players like Tonik Bank, which is a neo bank in the Philippines; and other customers like Brij, Kozo, Garblecloud, etc.
