At Spatial Ideas our mission is to build an e-Gov platform for India. We want to use technology to bring transparency, accountability and efficiency in important citizen services such as Sanitation, Healthcare, Public Distribution System, Employees accountability, etc.
To achieve this we have built an innovative Platform by converging Geographic Information System (GIS), Mobile Applications, Business Intelligence and Biometrics (Face and Fingerprints) Our products enable real time dashboards, SMS Alerts, email reports, insightful maps for decision makers by connecting citizen touch points using tablets/phones. For example, our real time health maps help understand how diseases spread, Field Nurses use our location enabled mobile apps to know exactly who needs treatment, vaccination, etc. when and where, Our affordable fingerprint scanners connected to tablets ensure people get food using their ration cards and are able to check stocks at shops using SMS, saving time & money.
Despite hurdles, we now have our technology helping people in rural Aurangabad get proper and timely healthcare at the Public Health Centers, expected to impact lives of 500,000 people by March 2014. Thousands of families in villages around Sangli and Aurangabad no longer depend on whim of the shopkeepers to get food using their ration cards! We hope to extend some of these technologies impacting millions of lives.
