    Jacksonville Chamber Focus

    Shaleen Shah isn’t your typical business owner. While he’s been running his own business for the past four years, Shah isn’t “legally” an adult yet. Although he’s only 20 years old, his age hasn’t stopped him from starting and growing Seventhman, a technology consulting and Web design company that develops custom software packages for small- to medium-sized businesses.

    “Age is not a limitation for me,” Shah said. “Our team provides an extensive portfolio and experience.” Shah’s parents encouraged and supported him in starting his own business while he was still in high school at Orange Park High.

    Born in India, Shah moved to Jacksonville with his family when he was 10 years old. Then when Shah was 16, he started his own business in his family room at home. Since then, Seventhman has changed its name, expanded its services and moved to an office located in Orange Park only 10 minutes away from Shah’s home. While Shah began with two or three employees, he now has six full-time employees and utilizes 50 contractors on three different continents.

    The main focus at Seventhman is Internet development, including Web sites, e-commerce and e-business solutions. “We help businesses become more efficient using technology,” Shah said. “Our services range from developing enterprise solutions to connecting all your company’s locations using an Intranet.” Despite the busy load of operating his own small business, Shah also attends UNF working toward his marketing degree.

    If you’re wondering where the name “Seventhman” came from, Shah will tell you that he considers seven his lucky number and that the name seemed marketable and unique.

    While Seventhman’s 100 clients are located all over the United States, Shah says that more than 90 percent of his marketing is done through word of mouth. As a result, Shah recognizes the importance of his involvement at the Chamber.

    He joined the Chamber two years ago when he became involved in the West Area Council. He started on their board and then became the treasurer. Most recently the West Area Council nominated Shah as a candidate for this year’s Small Business Leader of the Year. “Being a part of the Chamber means building business relationships,” Shah said.

    Another part of Seventhman’s commitment of giving back to the community is with Get Connected, an organization that creates Web pages for businesses and non-profit organizations. Seventhman’s employees helped launch Get Connected, which is managed by students in northeast Florida. This group provides an opportunity for the business community and schools to combine efforts to better prepare young people for their careers through exposing students to a variety of skills.

    Seventhman also remains involved in the community through their ongoing internship program for college and university students. Seventhman helps students gain hands-on technology experience while simultaneously earning college credit. They also offer Technology Learning Experiences to area high school students.

    “Getting involved in the Chamber and the community is one of the best things you can do. It’s not just about our business, it’s about giving back to the community as well.”

  4. Seventhman adds virtual tour

    August 18, 2003 Jacksonville Business Journal

    An Orange park Web and application development firm has added virtual tour technology to its offerings, and two employees to help create the tours.

    Though varying forms of 360-degree picture viewers have been available for years and have become a popular tool for real estate agents to show homes on Web sites, Seventhman President Shaleen Shah said Real Tour Vision technology is an improvement.

    “The screen is much bigger, and they’re not fish-eyed or distorted because a parabolic mirror is not used,” Shah said.

    Real Tour Vision images are use 12 separate shots around a room with a wide-angle lens. The designers can place “hotspots” in the image so that if a customer clicks on stairs it will show the upstairs, or if the customer clicks on a door the image switches to the next room.

    Real Tour Vision’s product also incorporates audio clips so viewers can hear commentary about what they’re seeing.

    Shah said he thinks the product can generate about $150,000 a year. He will target real estate agents, hotels, resorts, golf courses and similar businesses. Seventhman has added a salesperson and a photographer dedicated to the product, bringing the three-year-old firm’s staff count to six employees.

    August 11, 2003 Press Release

    (ORANGE PARK, FL) — A new agreement with a Michigan-based company will allow an Orange Park-based technology services company to offer virtual tours via the Internet.

    Orange Park-based Seventhman was recently granted exclusive dealer rights by Traverse City, Mich.-based Real Tour Vision to offer virtual tours to customers in Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties. The new agreement has also led Seventhman to add two new members to its staff to market and develop the virtual tours.

    “Virtual tours leverage the power of the Internet to showcase properties, facilities, products and communities online using an interactive format,” said Shaleen Shah, president of Seventhman. “We are excited about the opportunity to offer such a high quality product in our array of services. This is a logical next step for us.”

    Darryl Herring, a former Navy photographic production manager, will head up Seventhman’s Real Tour division. Seventhman also hired Tim Vaughan as a sales manager for the division.

    Long a part of the online real estate industry, virtual tours can be used to showcase homes for sale, apartments for rent, new communities under development and resorts and hotels.

    Seventhman will use Real Tour Vision 360-degree Panoramic Virtual Tour technology to produce the virtual tours, which can also be e-mailed or placed on disk because of their portability. The tours act as a mini-commercial that can also include audio and banner ads or your company logo.

    “We have the ability to present so much more information with these tours that it’s incredible,” Shah said. “And, because of the advanced technology provided through our partnership with Real Tour Vision, we will be able to develop tours without fish-eye or photo distortion.”

    March 22, 2002 Jacksonville Business Journal

    Eric Cravey, president of Cravey Communications, is developing his first radio campaign since incorporating the company last fall.

    The campaign is for Seventhman, a division of Draven Enterprises, an Orange Park-based company that develops custom software for small to medium-sized businesses. It also offers training for companies that want to use the latest technology and desktop publishing solutions.

    The ads will run on WEJZ-FM 96.1 from March 11 to March 25, and will include seven spots daily promoting Seventhman’s software program.

    “The reason we went with 96.1 was their demographics which are 35-year-olds and older,” Cravey said.

    “That’s a professional demographic and a lot of times, the secretaries are the ones with the radios at their desks and many times, they are the ones who make the decisions about company software.”
