Zomato the best place to work

Another Step Towards Making Zomato The Best Place To Work

At Zomato, we’ve committed to work-life integration and workplace sensitivity as core to employee happiness. Last month, we went ahead with a new 26-week parental leave policy – a move that has been largely appreciated by our employees, the media and our peers. Through the feedback, we realised that whether folks were parents or not, they were touched by our empathy. It was humbling reading all the emails and texts.

We have always believed that a meaningful alignment of people’s personal and professional goals allows us to bring our best to work.

However, we can’t be done yet; there’s a lot of work to do. After all, parental policy can’t merely stop at leave policy, it must extend to parental care – and much more as well.

With this belief in our hearts, we recently inaugurated our first in-house creche — in partnership with Ipsaa — at our headquarters in Gurgaon. Parents in our organization with children between the age group of 6 months up to 7 years are now availing this option from Monday to Friday between 8:30 am to 8:00 pm. And the entire facility carries zero cost for zomans.

Some of the activities provided here for the children include book reading, storytelling, clay modelling, music, sensory development, language and communication, motor skills and coordination, mobility and exercise. The creche has been designed keeping in mind a child’s need for space and nurture.

In our organization, there are several parents, who have been depending on family members or creches outside for child care. We have tried to lessen their domestic worries as they would be relieved to know that their children are barely a few steps away from them — at any given point of time. Most importantly, with this initiative, we hope to provide a stress-free daycare option for Zoman parents.

By all accounts, it has been an encouraging start but the idea doesn’t end here for us. We are already working on expanding this facility and introducing creches to other offices in various cities — where we have large teams.

Zomato acquires Feeding India to weed out food wastage and serve underprivileged

Zomato Acquires Feeding India To Weed Out Food Wastage And Serve Underprivileged

With an aim to curb food wastage and provide food for unprivileged, Zomato has acquired not-for-profit organisation Feeding India. Both firms have been working together for the past six months and Feeding India team led by Ankit is now completely integrated into the foodtech unicorn.

As a part of the deal, Zomato will fund the entire salaries of the team – and some core initiatives like the development of the ‘Feedi.ng’ app.

The app will essentially connect donors and volunteers with an aim to serve at least 100 million underprivileged people every month. Zomato will also revamp Feeding India web portal and publish its quarterly financial report starting from October 2019, revealed Zomato’s blog by Deepinder Goyal.

Importantly, all the money with Feeding India will remain with the organisation and will be deployed towards its mission “food for everyone”.

Zomato has been working behind this social cause for a long time and collaborated with organsations like Feeding India, Robin Hood Army, and Akshaya Patra Foundation.

They have closely worked behind the project to find out the actual reason behind food wastage ranging from multiple levels like harvesting, transporting to major sources such as weddings, events, restaurants, hostels, and houses.

Among the aforementioned organisations, Feeding India had also collaborated with Zomato during Odisha cyclone. Both firms have provided  75,000 meals along with necessities for daily survival for a month to more than 16,500 people in the coastal state.

Further, Zomato’s 6 months effort behind the organisation has now started bearing fruit as it achieved a milestone of distributing 1.1 million meals a month to underprivileged from 78,300 monthly meals.

During the same period, the number of cities Feeding India is active in has risen from 65 to 82 and the number of Hunger Heroes (volunteers at Feeding India) has grown from 8,500 to 21,500

IndiaMLS - India's First Property Portal

Indiamls Launches India's First Property Portal Without Using A “pay-per-listing" Model

A Solution to Indian Real Estate Market Issues

  • What is Pay-Per-Listing model?
  • Flaws in Pay-Per-Listing Model
  • IndiaMLS has brought and customized the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for the Real Estate Market to create the largest and most accurate database of property listings in India.

Mumbai, 25th June, 2019: IndiaMLS, a company whose mission statement is to create the largest and most accurate database of property listings in India, has come out with India's first Multiple Listing Service platform, customized for Indian property brokers which does not use a Pay-Per-Listing model. IndiaMLS has brought to India and customized the MLS,  also considered as the greatest invention in real estate technology.

The Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has now been in place for more than two years, yet the Indian real estate market remains fragmented and unstructured, but equally bad are the traditional web portals which display their property listing data to the public.

While speaking to Mr. Jay Patel, founder and CEO of IndiaMLS, he said, " Almost every one of the real estate websites in India uses a “Pay-Per-Listing” model which essentially means brokers must pay to advertise their listings on the websites. The result is tons of garbage data because anyone can post anything they want as long as they’re willing to pay for it. Thus, 80% of the listings on these sites are fake, duplicate, or old, and have very few unique listings."

Mr. Patel also highlighted three main problems with the Pay-Per-Listing (PPL) concept:

  1. Pay-Per-Listing model results in creating Junk database: Most of the property portals sell listing packages to brokers, such as 200 listings for a flat fee of INR 30,000, or more. The average broker has only 25 listings, so in using the package, he enters the same listings on the website multiple times to try to keep the listings ‘fresh’ and at the top of list, or he may also enter completely fake listings for the sole purpose of finding new clients who will inquire about those fake listings.Thus, compromising the quality of the database.
  2. No centralized database in the PPL Model used by Indian property portal: In the PPL model used by Indian real estate portals, there is no sharing of data. Each portal has and maintains its own database, but they have no way of verifying which properties get sold, rented, or cancelled, thus these listings are never removed from the database.  Even worse for consumers is they have to visit many different sites to try to find a suitable property. It would be much easier if everyone can go to one central website for quality data and market information. That is precisely what the MLS does for the real estate industry.
  3. Property portals charge the brokers a huge amount of money to list properties which the portals actually need even more than the brokers to run their property portals successfully: A broker's property listing is like an asset for the property portal, still the portals charge the brokers a huge amount of money to list properties on their website. Without the broker’s listings, portals would have no consumer traffic, and without visitors on the site, they would have no advertising revenues, and without revenue the portals could not survive. Brokers will ultimately realize that they don’t need to pay to list their properties, thus the Pay-Per-Listing model will fail.

Unlike any other property portal in India, IndiaMLS is unique in its approach and creates one central database of all residential and commercial property listings in each city called a Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and the MLS system maintains the quality of that database, thus little or no duplicate, sold, or junk listings would be found.  Brokers do not need to waste time looking on many sites to find properties for their clients.

The MLS is not a Pay-Per-Listing concept.  It utilizes a subscription-based model, where brokers pay a flat annual membership fee.  They get unlimited listings, and they must agree to operate by the MLS’ Code-of-Conduct.  The MLS is a proven concept which comes from the United States where it has been the backbone of the entire real estate industry there.  IndiaMLS is a similar B2B solution designed for all professional brokers in India, and it will contain the most accurate sale or rental, residential and commercial listings in the country. This allows sellers to quickly find buyers for their sale properties, making it the most effective target marketing tool for the industry, unlike any other realty portal in India.
About IndiaMLS:

IndiaMLS Software Pvt Ltd., founded in 2017 by Jay Patel, is designed to aggregate the largest and most accurate database of property listings in India. The MLS includes both residential and commercial properties (sale and rental), as well as buyers’ requirements, making it the only true property exchange in the country, similar to a Stock Exchange, but for properties. This allows sellers to quickly find buyers for their sale properties, and vice versa, making it the most effective target marketing tool for the real estate industry, unlike any other realty portal in India.  The MLS is a B2B solution used by real estate brokers and builders, but consumers also benefit greatly from the quality of the data compared to other real estate portals in the market.

About Jay Patel:

Jay Patel is a veteran of the real estate industry from the US having more than 20 years of experience in multiple facets of real estate including land development, property rehabs, and sales and brokerage.  Jay also holds a Managing Broker license in the state of Illinois (USA), and has a vast level of experience in real estate technology.  He and his team have brought the MLS concept to India and fully customized it for this country in an effort to help improve the industry and the quality of the data available for brokers, builders, and consumers.

I have been using and also recommending Colgate toothbrushes to my friends/fans for years now, which is why the idea of doing a limited-edition autographed Super Flexi toothbrushes got me intrigued and excited - primarily because I haven't autographed a toothbrush before.

Autonomous Vehicles and Data as the Fuel of the Future

Autonomous Vehicles And Data As The Fuel Of The Future

From being alerted to potential maintenance issues via remote vehicle diagnostic monitoring to automated calling for emergency breakdowns or targeted offers and infotainment content designed to enhance the overall travel experience, there are no shortage data-enabled use cases that focus on providing drivers and passengers new features and services.

Data is quickly becoming the new ‘fuel’ for the automotive industry. Forward looking automakers envision a future in which they have the ability to combine and analyze various pieces of information from different vehicle systems to reveal things like driving habits, frequently visited locations, tastes in music and numerous other insights into consumer behavior.

For the consumer on the other hand, assuming they are open to it, there are a plethora of benefits that can come from providing ready-made access to their data.

From being alerted to potential maintenance issues via remote vehicle diagnostic monitoring to automated calling for emergency breakdowns or targeted offers and infotainment content designed to enhance the overall travel experience, there are no shortage data-enabled use cases that focus on providing drivers and passengers new features and services.

However, as a 2017 McKinsey & Company Car Data Monetization Survey notes, “No matter which features car data can make possible, capturing value from them is not feasible if consumers do not see the benefit” and perhaps most importantly, “customers must trust that the data they share will be held and used responsibly.”

As our CEO and Executive Chairman, John Chen said before ; “The inevitable implications of a data-driven economy are right in front of us and we now stand before a moral, ethical and public policy crossroads. How we collectively decide what the rules of the game for this new data-driven economy is, I would argue, one of the most important issues facing global policymakers today.”

In the near future, drivers might buy or rent software-powered services for the weekend, such as enhanced navigation capabilities, blind spot detection or even engine management and suspension software to prep their high-performance car for a racetrack or road trip.

Car makers will receive so much data from their vehicles out in the field in real-time that they will be able to improve their future models, right down to what buttons to swap out of the dashboard because no one uses them. It may be hard to believe but today, manufacturers know little about their vehicles once they’ve left the dealership. With connected vehicles, data flows back to automakers, enabling software updates in real time.

Putting Data to Work

In the future, data from sensor-packed and connected vehicles could even be packaged and shared with cities. Data showing a lot of braking, for instance, on a cold morning may alert city officials to a dangerous patch of black ice that requires salt.

In all ways, automakers will look to leverage the data that vehicles produce. And that amount of data is growing exponentially as software and electronics become the key differentiators among like classes of cars. Lux Research says that by 2030, electronics and software will account for 50% of car costs, up from about 30% today while the software opportunity in autonomous cars will grow from less than one billion to $25 billion.

Modern luxury cars are already marvels of software and electronic engineering, containing on average more than 100 million lines of code and six to eight operating systems. Indeed, just one connected car will generate more revenue than ten conventional ones . Additionally, eight in ten auto industry executives say data will fuel future automotive business models and 83% believe they will make money off that data.

With data a highly sought-after commodity, and many big tech companies building their business models on monetizing data, it’s important to note that at BlackBerry, it’s our sworn principle and mission to protect data, not to exploit it. We simply move it, and of course do so securely, as opposed to use it or profit off of it.

Cybersecurity Risks Mount

Despite the exciting opportunities they present, connected cars increase cybersecurity risks and that challenge must be met for autonomous vehicles to reach their full potential. Attack surfaces are constantly being added to vehicles via elements such as sensors, automated steering wheels, brakes, accelerators, infotainment systems, mobile apps and wireless key fobs .

Like any other product or ecosystem, as the number of connected ‘things’ grows within a vehicle, so too does the attack surface and the threat potential.

In recent years, nearly every OEM has experienced some sort of hack, driving home the reality that security cannot be an afterthought or bolted on. It has to be baked into vehicles and their components at every stage of the process. That means securing the supply chain, using only trusted components, in field monitoring and responding quickly to issues.
