Now, find jobs with AI-driven assistant on WhatsApp


The start-up has created the virtual assistant in English & local languages and has tied up with clients such as Dunzo, Club Mahindra, Cure.Fit, Ecom Express and Flipkart.

“To apply for a job, a candidate simply needs to send a “hi” message to Vahan’s phone number on WhatsApp following which the bot qualifies them, answers their questions and even schedules an interview,” said Madhav Krishna, CEO, Vahan.

“There are 200k delivery jobs in the country that grew by 20% last year. Recruitment for frontline roles such as delivery boys is done largely manually and is therefore hard to scale. Not to forget, the high attrition in this space (over 75% per year) means that there is a constant need for hiring.”

Recruitment is one of the toughest challenges for organisations. Sourcing the right talent and at the right cost is the key for growth-more so for the blue collar or frontline positions for which hiring is done in large volumes. Vahan, specialises in high volume recruitment of delivery boys for companies in the on-demand and e-commerce space.  “Our AI-driven virtual assistant  helps companies meet their hiring requirements quickly and in a cost effective manner. The assistant can be integrated with WhatsApp to maximise reach and dramatically reduce sourcing costs,” says Madhav.

With WhatsApp recently announcing the release of its Business API, the playing field for a large set of businesses like Vahan opens up. WhatsApp has 1.5 billion monthly users globally with 200 million of them being in India.  The engagement prowess of the platform is evident from the fact that 96% of the smartphone users in India use it and 97% of them are hooked on it daily.
