Meet the Owner

Shailesh Humbad, Owner of Aten Software LLC

Shailesh Humbad is the founder of Aten Software LLC.
In the late 90s, he started somacon.com, an online retailer selling overclocked CPU and motherboard kits.
After helping a local company set up a Yahoo Store, he wrote a Perl script to list the products in Froogle (now Google Shopping).
With that experience, he was inspired to set up the Aten Software data feed service for more online store owners.
Today, he continues to develop the feed software and website, and provide customer support.
Shailesh also provides software consulting and engineering services, with a particular focus on e-commerce retailers.
