A web and app based aggregator, 10digi, has launched a new service wherein users can now subscribe to a telecom network and get the SIM cards (both prepaid and postpaid) delivered at their doorstep. As of now, the service is only available to people residing in Delhi-NCR but the company plans to extend it to 125 cities by the year-end. Moreover, to execute the service in the capital for the next three months, about 500 mobile retailers will help deliver the SIM cards. Not only this, the company is expected to hire about 10,000 employees in phases to carry out and extend its operations across the nation.
Further, as of now, the company has tied up with Idea Cellular, Vodafone and Tata Teleservices but is already in talks to bring in other telecom operators soon. With this service, users will be able to get SIM at their doorstep and the verification will be done through Biometrics as a part of E-KYC subscription. While the Aadhaar Card will fasten the verification process, if a user doesn’t possess the Aadhaar card, other documents like ration card or pan card can be used.
“The mix of GPS tracker technology and CRM services has lead to the development of this service; inspiration has been derived from the discovery of various services utilising seamless technology, now MRs around your location can be found to deliver the telecom products at your doorstep at the time of your choice. We are committed to develop this service to a larger scale, however, have opted for telecom products to begin with.â€ added Sherjil Ozair, Co-founder & CTO, 10digi.
As per the report, 10digi has invested over 75 lakh initially and is expected to add in Rs 2 crore more to extend the service in Delhi-NCR. Apart from SIM delivery, 10digi also provides services like mobile and data card recharge, DTH recharge, Bill Payments and MNP (Mobile Number Portability).
