Pehechano is a platform built with a social cause in mind. The increasing number of crime against women, children and older people in our society teaches us to be vigilant whilst dealing with third party service providers be it house keepers, food and grocery home delivery boys, security guards, drivers, sales personnel, courier boys, onsite healthcare givers, delivery and pickup persons, technicians, mechanics, showroom personnel, LPG delivery boys, LPG mechanics visiting for mandatory checks etc. working in and for various establishments. In all these cases, we deal with them without really knowing their background or reference and go purely on a gut feel. This is a platform to store and share identity of such employees, vendors, and contractors.
Pehechano uses technology to trace the background of these service providers by alerting individuals about the person visiting /offering a service thus enhancing beneficiary confidence to deal with strangers. It is a proven fact that traceability is a major deterrent in most cases of theft, fraud, or crime. When the service provider sends an SMS alert to a customer in advance of a service with the details of the person visiting them, it ensures that risks are significantly reduced and traceability is enhanced. Additionally, when the visitor and the host are both aware about the impending visit and the identity of the visiting personnel, chances of fraud are significantly minimized. Pehechano provides that unique and innovative feature of making communities safer.
The platform ensures identity traceability and authentication, thus supporting a means to verify the track record of the individuals providing the service and avoid impersonation. The very fact that there is identification and traceability of individuals acts as a deterrent for the above class of employees who may abscond and resurface after an incident. The major users would be employers from the Retail industry, Security Agencies, Courier companies, and Schools, Colleges and Corporates, LPG Distributors who use third party outsourcing like transport services and on call drivers. The portal also works both ways. Individuals employed in these sectors can establish their “credentials and identity” and this portal offers a one-stop window to ascertain the identity by potential employers.
