Bengaluru-based HRTech startup Springworks has launched a WhatsApp tool- SpringVerify for instant identity verification.
Undoubtedly, big companies have been running Employee Background Checks forever. But, this is the first time employers, whether in a business or household setting, will have access to a tool of this kind, right within WhatsApp, to verify who they are dealing and connecting with. This is also one of the earliest adaptations of WhatsApp to use it for Identity Verification and Crime Monitoring across the world.
To verify someone's identity on Whatsapp, users just have to give a missed call at 080-47193400 to get started. They can also start a Whatsapp chat to verify identity through this link: : https://wa.me/918431237470?text=SPRINGSTART
"Our mantra is - Trust, but Verify! Many people have access to your homes and apartments - think cooks, drivers, maids, nannies etc. The main reason we've built SpringVerify on WhatsApp is to help you solidify trust with your house helpers”, said Kartik Mandaville, CEO and Founder of Springworks.
SpringVerify, an Employee Background Verification product, integrates with the WhatsApp API and lets users share a picture of one of Pan Card/Driving License/Aadhaar Card/Voter ID Card right inside WhatsApp. The tool then verifies whether the furnished ID card is present in the government records.
Additionally, the user can share a picture or selfie of the ID holder and the tool will match that with the image on the ID.
A check will cost INR 49. However, SpringVerify on WhatsApp has been made free-to-use for the first 1000 users of the tool.
Besides this, SpringVerify also has another unique feature on WhatsApp to find whether the ID holder has a Court Record. The tool is able to match this with digitized court records only from courts of law across India.
