How SaaS Startup Maximl Is Making Factories Efficient With Its Connected Worker Platform For Deskless Workforce
With advancements in technology, there has been a paradigm shift in the working of companies. Providing solutions that are on par with global standards, Indian startups are contributing to the digital transformation of businesses, including financial institutions, hospitals, small businesses, government, etc.
In this digital transformation, Indian SaaS startups are playing a major role in bringing efficiency to the system.
Helping companies in three major problem areas – maintenance, operations, and safety and quality check, Saas startup Maximl solves the problem of last-mile workflows across the use cases of maintenance, inspection, safety, and operations.
Startup Story: Maximl | Connected Worker Platform for the Deskless Workforce
Started by Manish Arora, Samir Otiv, Ajaykrishnan Jayagopal and Pankaj Pawan, Maximl offers a full-stack collaboration platform for deskless workers in process industries.
Its connected worker platform hosts a suite of mobile-first solutions that are customisation-friendly and scalable. The platform is built to drive adoption among deskless workers and enable standard work implementation in the field.
The idea of Maximl was incepted in the mind of founders when Manish and Samir realised many factories and industries were still having to work in traditional ways, using excel sheets and face-to-face meetings.
“For instance, Zomato’s delivery personnel or Urban Company’s service providers have the same procedure for carrying out their duties. Even factory workers have to carry out uniform duties but are not able to do so because the system is still quite archaic,” says Manish.
So, Manish and Samir went about digitising the processes and started SaaS startup Maximl on December 26, 2016, and were joined by Ajaykrishnan Jayagopal and Pankaj Pawan.[Read: Factors Driving The Growth Of B2B Industry In India]
