Field services startup MyMobiforce gets angel funding
MyMobiforce, an on-demand recruitment platform which connects field engineers with service companies, has raised $200,000 (around Rs 1.4 crore at the current exchange rate) in angel funding.
The Noida-headquartered startup said in a statement that US-based angel investor Arpan Prakash and Sanjiv Mittal, chief executive of the National Institute of Smart Governance (NISG), had contributed to the round.
“The funds raised will be utilised for aggregation of a strong talent pool to serve brands looking for services grounded in connectivity,” said Dheeraj Khatter, co-founder of MyMobiforce. “We plan to grow our sales team to add more enterprises to increase the volume of service transactions.”
Founded by Khatter and Sanjiv Mittal, MyMobiforce said it aims to create an exhaustive network of field technicians for brands in sectors such as IT, telecom, logistics, networking, and hospitality, among others.
Companies can use the startup’s technology platform to find qualified personnel for executing field service-related tasks. It further said that a sizeable number of field service calls will be generated through devices connected in proximity and crowdsourcing will be the most viable medium for brands to handle the flow of service calls.
The MyMobiforce platform is capable of harnessing customer relationship management (CRM) programs like Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamic to leverage their workforce over the cloud. Its ‘matchmaking’ services are based on artificial intelligence and it also offers a payment settlement facility.
MyMobiforce currently runs operations in more than 10 cities with over 2,000 freelancers and 1,000 partners on its network. Its clients include HCL, Hughes, Tata Nelco, QTek Systems, Airtel, Voltas, Intex, Lloyd and Firstouch, among others.
