Self Interview - Sachin Sancheti


Who are you, and what do you do?

Hi! I am Sachin Sancheti. I work at a real estate firm and handle multiple things. I am a currently a functional head for marketing and planning. I am a structural head for a few construction projects that I undertake for clients as a project management service. The company, Vitrag Group, is headed by my uncle and we are today a team of about 20+ members in office and 5+ members at various site locations handling real estate sales, supervision, services and development and building activities.

The business has grown over time and it is a growing business in my opinion. Traditionally the industry has been led here in the Nilgiris by family owned houses and lately, by larger players and comglomerates in the industry.

What hardware do you use?

I use an Acer Nitro 5, gaming laptop as the primary device which is supported by a 2010 bought Microsoft ergonomic 4000 keyboard, an ergonomic logitech M570 mouse and an acer or samsung 24" monitor. I like having second hand phones of Android as my primary handphone device. My office infact, all of us use some assembled desktop or branded laptop with windows 10 loaded. Some had linux Mint but that was scrapped eventually.

My printers are Canon and Epson. Canon is something I use for all my photography prints and Epson Rips high end models for business printing. We do a lot of photocopies as documentation is a core part to our business.

A kindle reader is my evening passtime if not a bound book.

And what software?

I use a lot of software and manage the same for the company. These include the following but my list may be not exhaustive at this point of time

What would be your dream setup?

There is no specific thing as a dream setup. I have learnt that these things are evolutionary. A lot of tools get outdated very quickly. I like my current setup and prefer to not compromise on the functionality that I enjoy. I continue to upgrade on the setup I have been able to build around me. I just home that computer migrations get easier as I upgrade :)
