Demography, Geography and Skill Benchmark and Mid/Large Enterprise customers use the pool for identifying talent and reaching them in order to increase hiring efficiency and reduce cost of talent acquisition.

Key differentiator: For our Talent Acquisition Suite, the two things set us apart from our competitors is large traction of skills supply on the platform and our partner ecosystem that supports that traction viz. Confederation of Indian Industry, Association of Indian Industry, National Skill Development Corporation. Today over 400,000 skills from India are available on the platform who are assessed and are available on demand.

Source of Inspiration: Most government agencies, skilling agencies and mid- and large-size customers identified the need of talent analytics and that inspired us to create the solution. As we were conducting pre-hiring assessments for many mid- and large-sized customers in India, HR and talent acquisition heads wanted us to source high quality talent who can be identified on demand, government of the other hand wanted all assessed pool of data from different sources to automatically fed in to the platform in real-time so that central and state authorities can share the data to government agencies, mid- and large employers, SMEs to identify and connect talent at real-time.
