As Covid-19 Crisis Unfolds, Awign Creates a Unique Compliance Platform in Indian Market
As the country gradually opens up after the lockdown and people get back to work, protocols of social distancing, sanitization and personal hygiene are required to be followed by employees of all organizations. To ensure that all the guidelines mentioned by the government and health authorities are followed meticulously by organizations and that there are timely audits of compliance measures, Awign, India’s largest and most trusted work-fulfilment platform, has created a unique compliance platform called ACCP or Awign Covid Compliance Platform.
ACCP is a tech-based platform that can be deployed in any kind of work environment and modified according to the needs and requirements of on-field norms and workflows. This platform not only ensures that employees follow the Covid-compliant Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) but also deploys Awign’s vast network of gig workers to carry out actual physical audits of enforcement measures.
Underlining the need for such a solution that makes the enforcement of Covid-19 compliance measures easier, Gurpreet Singh, Co-founder, Awign shares, “Indian Economy is finding a way to work through the unprecedented circumstances. As the factories, warehouses, large corporate offices reopen amidst COVID-19, they need solutions which ensure all regulations and best practices for mitigating COVID-19 are followed every minute. We have built ACCP to this effect and have made sure that our solution is inclusive of all the actual stakeholders who are responsible for COVID compliance at any workspace.”
In a similar vein, Annanya Sarthak, Co-founder, Awign says, “Having created livelihood through 5 million tasks in past 2 years, Awign has now launched ACCP and is impacting the workforce across various industries, enabling a way for them to come back to work and earn a living amidst the pandemic. We aim to scale fast and impact more than a million employees by getting them back to their workspaces in a safe, controlled and monitored environment.”
The platform has three main benefits:
Enforce: Implement Covid-compliant measures among the workforce so that protocols of social distancing, implementation of personal hygiene, among others, are taken care of.
Monitor: The application detects breaches of protocols and alerts the stakeholders regarding the same through dashboards.
Audit: Timely and regular physical intervention by Awign’s gig workforce in case of violations.
The way ACCP works is simple yet highly effective and easy to deploy. It provides a mobile app-based platform for employers, supervisors and those who are in charge of enforcing protocols. The platform is easy to operate even by the non tech savvy employees like a security guard and Awign provides end to end training and operational support customized for every organization that deploys its platform. It constantly flags violations of protocols through dashboards, notifications, emails and SMSs to all the stakeholders involved. Finally, periodic and detailed physical audits are undertaken by Awign’s professional auditors who carry out inspections of office premises through both mystery and non-mystery means. Awign charges a minimal user based subscription fee from the corporate basis the usage of the platform.
ACCP has customizable modules to ensure Covid Compliance for a wide variety of scenarios including corporate offices, manufacturing setups , supply chain centres, mobility and last mile delivery solutions, retail establishments, etc. Backed by investors like Unitus Ventures, Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and Work10M, Awign has already partnered with some of the top corporate organizations in the country to ensure Covid-19 compliance among their workforce.
