On March 5, Savetime saw yet another proud moment when NASSCOM declared the top five emerging companies of Pune at its event, ‘NASSCOM Product Conclave’ held at Hotel Westin in Pune. The event, largely attended by Pune-based companies, had a panel of jury comprising successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, representatives from NASSCOM, TiE and large corporate houses.
The participating companies were asked to do a presentation for the jury. The pitches, meant for the jury, went all day long till 4:00 p.m. The jury finally declared the top five companies at 5:00 p.m for showcasing at the main stage. Product-centric innovation and real solutions for pain-points were among the top criteria in choosing these companies. Apart from Savetime Technologies, the other companies chosen were:
A) Ascent Informatics: SaaS service for monitoring industrial devices in real time.
B) kPoint Tech: Cloud-based video creation and sharing platform.
C) Qualitia: Selenium-based test automation platform that doesn’t require scripts.
D) ANTfarm Robotics: Product that helps consumers control their electrical appliances at home using their mobile phones.
Savetime has over 4,300 doctors in Pune listed on its platform. The platform provides accurate and comprehensive information collected directly from the doctors and genuine patient reviews collected directly from real patients. This makes Savetime a decision-enabling platform which offers more value than a plain directory. After the jury declared the result, this writer spoke to Mitesh Bohra, co-founder and CEO, Savetime. He said, “Savetime is extremely beneficial for folks who do not know where to go when they have a medical need. We help you find the right doctor in your area within your budget. You don’t even have to know the medical jargon. Just talk to our system like you are talking to a friend. Tell us your symptoms and we will suggest the right specialist.”
