Anaxee employment opportunities in rural India

Anaxee shows how Digital Technology can provide Employment Opportunities in Rural India.

In current Covid times, technological advancements in the Digital sphere are increasingly shaping various aspects of our life. In the past two decades, India has witnessed exponential economic growth and is ranked among the top five economies of the world. However, this growth hasn’t helped to provide employment opportunities in the rural areas of our country.

Seeing this Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has prioritized radical digitalization to induce economic inclusiveness through a host of initiatives like ‘Digital India’ to provide impetus and opportunity to rural citizens so as to ensure that they are equal participants in India’s growth story. As per Niti Aayog, in 2050, over half of India’s population will still be rural.

By utilizing the opportunities provided by “Digital India”, Indore base Annexe Digital Runners Pvt. Ltd., a forerunner among startups in digital innovation, has been playing an active role in transforming millions of lives in Rural India. Through its app-based services, reaching far beyond into the remotest part of India, Anaxee is covering the length, breadth, and depth of India – from Kutch to Kamakhya, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Currently, the company has operations in 26 states and is engaged in building India’s largest last-mile network of 250000 Digital Runners who are tech-enabled feet-on-street of rural youth, spread across 540 Districts, 26 States, and 11000 Pin codes.

Anaxee is using Digital Technology to provide Employment Opportunities in Rural India.

Anaxee, a tech-enabled last-mile outreach, and data collection company is uniquely poised to assist in the radical seamless digital rural transformation from the ground up for the vast rural citizen base in the country. It has been part of India’s digital journey starting from the grassroots level and will enable its rural population to be an integral part of India’s growth trajectory.

At the helm of this tech startup is Shri. Govind Agarwal, its firebrand CEO & Founding Director who predicts “The traditional ways of doing business in rural areas will change much more than we ever imagined and will see the deployment of innovative digital technologies in ways of doing business and creating employment opportunities in the sunrise market segments of tier 2 & 3 cities of Rural India”.

Anaxee has innovated “Digital Runner” a tech-enabled personified feet on street comprising of youths of rural India and equipped them with app-based technology on their Smartphones in form of “Anaxee Partner App” & “Anaxee Digital Runner App”, designed to provide a multitude of benefits as well as a variety of electronic services to villagers. Through these apps, these “Digital Runners” earn handsome sums of money by successfully completing tasks assigned to them.

Among the electronic services, Anaxee’s “Project Swaraksha”, the door-to-door COVID vaccination awareness campaign covering the villages of India, aims to reach out to the people living in the remotest villages, who have “vaccine hesitancy” for convincing them to get vaccinated. The Digital Runners working under this project have to educate and counsel such people about the benefits of getting vaccinated and also have to ensure that they take their vaccine shot as soon as possible. Under this project the earning potential for the rural youth is excellent.  A Digital Runner is paid a sum of Rs. 50/- per vaccinated person and thus can earn anywhere from Rs. 5,000/- to Rs. 15,000/- per week!

This will provide additional income avenues to the village youths within their rural areas along with a host of other services offered by Anaxee such as Rural Survey, App Marketing, Data Collection, Address & KYC Verification as well as Digital Customer onboarding. These opportunities will also help in curtailing their mass migration to bigger cities for finding work. Anaxee is thus promoting their digital and financial inclusivity, promoting rural entrepreneurship and building rural employment opportunities as well as spearheading the dramatic rural change that’s underway.

Anaxee, helming a socio-economic revolution by reaching remote villages through its Digital Runners

Through its Digital Runners, Anaxee is slowly reshaping every aspect of life in villages by introducing accessible Smartphone app-based technology, catering to the new, emerging needs of rural citizens. Here, Anaxee has made significant contributions towards creating employment opportunities for the youth living in the rural areas of our country by helping them to find meaningful employment for themselves in their own villages or local areas. Thus Anaxee is playing a decisive role in bringing about socio-economic development across different remote geographic locations in Rural India.

Problem

In a country like India, with such an enormous landmass with such a varied geography, it’s always difficult to reach every corner and get the correct.
A big brand in the BFSI sector with millions of customer base and heavy legacy infrastructure while implementing its digital strategies for the coming generations wanted to have a partner who can verify the addresses for existing and upcoming customers. The problem was the stringent budget allocated to implement this. Apart from being a norm it’s also useful for the company to reduce fraud.

After the pilot, with some efficiency modelling we rolled out the complete project.
Anaxee activated hundreds of Digital Runners to gather authentic data which is also cross verified by our internal teams and provided millions of data points with proofs in ⅓ of the time taken by other companies that too with minimum expenses.

When everything is going digital and digital services are penetrating in the deeper india, it becomes quite necessary for customers to know their customer or validate their identity.
As per RBI guidelines it is mandatory to have a KYC. Companies spend lots of time and money in getting KYC done for the customer.

One such bank in order to be compliant and safe started doing KYC met with many challenges, first being the authenticity of the data, secondary issues were time to collect the data, expenses of getting KYC done , digitizing data and getting meaningful insights from collected data.

Digital Customer Onboarding


When your customers get on-boarded on your digital platform, things start changing.
Clarity, insights and easy management are few perks that come with Digital Customer Onboarding.

India homes 17.7% of the world population which is scattered across rural, semi-urban, and urban areas. Though it is simple for brands to plan business expansion and market in urban areas, the option to market in semi-urban and rural areas are very limited which hinders the reach to a large number of end-customers.

 

Agrostar, an agri-tech platform, wanted to reach farmers across a predefined geography to promote it’s app and enable large scale adoption of their agritech services. Their challenge was to reach farmers in villages and explain to them the benefits of going online for their irrigation requirements.

 

Anaxee activated its network of digital runners across 1300 villages across India. The runners approached 25,000 farmers at their doorstep to illustrate the benefits of adopting Agrostar and registered them on the app. Our network helped agrostar touch a market segment which most channels of marketing are not equipped to cover along with a personalized pitch and spreading representatives across the spectrum.
