With its new feature, free text-a-doctor service, Visit, an on-demand healthcare app raises seed funding

Delhi-based VISIT, an on-demand healthcare service provider, has a raised a seed funding from MapmyIndia, a marquee Technology Company based out of New Delhi. The startup plans on channeling this investment to further develop the technology being used in the app. 

“With the new funding, we plan on investing heavily in improving our technology. We are also aiming at increasing the number of doctors on the app to 500 over the next 3 months. The vision is to bring m-Health to a billion Indians over the next 5 years. No matter where you are you should have access to quality healthcare at just a tap,” said Vaibhav Singh, Co-founder, VISIT.
“We have been in search of supporting a team whose mission was to make quality healthcare easily available to everyone and who had the capability to execute on this mission. In VISIT we found both and are extremely excited to support them achieve their mission. ” said Rohan, CTO and Director of MapmyIndia.

The idea for the healthcare app was conceived when four graduates from BITS Pilani -- Anurag Prasad, Vaibhav Singh, Chetan Anand and Shashvat Tripathi -- felt the need for such a service on the BITS Pilani campus, which is located in a remote area and accessing quality healthcare was inconvenient.

VISIT aims to avoid various frictions in the delivery of healthcare today like booking an OPD appointment, in-clinic waiting, and inability to get in-house doctor visits. They do so by connecting patients with practitioners across multiple disciplines anytime, anywhere through smartphone or computer. It aims to put convenience back into the hands of patients and physicians with their salient feature ‘Q’, free text-a-doctor service. This allows the patients to ask all health related questions to doctors with just a text message. VISIT also follows up with patients for any further information they require. If the patient requires a treatment, ‘Q’ helps connect the patient with a specialist who can send prescriptions and order lab tests.

"Q is designed to be a health-based Q&A platform that works with a personal conversation between you and your physician. It’s an easy way to get a first opinion from a doctor, especially for mothers with children’s health questions," said Anurag Prasad, Co-founder, VISIT.

Patients can also request a “visit” from their smartphone; therapists can connect over video within 30 minutes and are able to diagnose and treat with nothing more than a smartphone/PC and their expertise. VISIT also has specialists like therapists, general physicians, dermatologists and nutritionists.

Talking about the specialists associated with VISIT, Chetan Anand, Co-founder, VISIT, said, “We make sure that the empanelment of doctors is carried out through a strict verification process thereby providing a reliable service to our customers. On an average only 1 out of 5 doctors make it through our stringent quality checks,"

ESS Distribution secures IT infrastructure of J. B. & Brothers with ESET Endpoint Antivirus

ESS Distribution, the leading provider of IT security solutions in Indian market, along with its trusted partner Amity Infosoft Pvt. Ltd. announced closing deal with J. B. & Brothers, one of the leading manufacturers and exporter of diamonds.

The IT infrastructure of J. B. & Brothers Pvt Ltd having more than 1500 employees in India and internationally is now secured by ESET Endpoint Antivirus. The company switched to ESET enterprise security solution for endpoints' protection from another security vendor since it was facing issues with systems' performance. Company opted for award-winning ESET Endpoint Antivirus product known for having very low impact on the system and the network.

"We kept several criteria in mind while choosing the endpoint solution. The main criteria was that the product should not affect system performance while providing best possible security from malware and cyber-attacks and consumption of resources should not be heavy. Another criterion was that the product should have been a bit more global than the one we used to have before," Kunal Jariwala, Technical Head at J. B. & Brothers says.

Headquartered in Gujarat, J. B. & Brothers today has its own manufacturing facility for Cutting & Polishing Diamond in Surat as well as sales and marketing offices in Mumbai, Hong Kong, Dubai, Antwerpen, Tel Aviv and marketing associates in Los Angeles, USA. As any fast growing company having complicated internal processes and working across several time zones, J. B. & Brothers had been struggling to keep the right balance between security and infrastructure performance. The new security product deployed by Amity Infosoft and ESS Distribution, the official distributor of ESET products in Indian market, could meet this requirement.

"ESET delivers the fastest, most effective and most proactive antivirus software solution to eliminate viruses, spyware, adware, worms, trojans, rootkits and other malware before they attack your system without slowing down performance," Mayank V. Patel of Amity Infosoft Pvt Ltd said.

According to Kunal Jariwala, ability to get instant support for ESET Endpoint Antivirus was another reason for company's IT department to opt for this security solution. According to J. B. & Brothers Technical Head, while few technical issues arose during implementation process due to specific requirement of J. B. & Brothers' IT infrastructure, and some of them remain to be solved, the deployment of new endpoint security solution was overall painless for the company. Moreover, company's employees could feel the changes immediately.

"Our employees are now able to exchange files and open them faster. They feel that the technical team has improved something. Of course, they may not have any idea about new antivirus and other details, but they are able to experience changes," Kunal Jariwala says.

Commenting on successful end of the implementation process, Zakir Rangwala, Country Head at ESSDistribution, said, "The first experience that users have with security product eventually leads to the choice. Both consumers and IT Heads at the enterprise sector want solid, reliable and user-friendly security solutions that can provide quality protection from malware as well as the minimum impact on the performance.
