We have been using Eklavvya platform for assessing the Entrepreneurial  Propensity of the candidates for enrollment into our flagship Eye Mitra Opticians program.

 Our award-winning Eye Mitra Opticians program aims to help address the issue of 55 crore cases of uncorrected refractive error in India by creating a network of optical micro-entrepreneurs in rural India.

They provide primary vision care services through their micro-franchise outlet as well as by conducting community screening events.

 The biggest challenge we face is getting the right candidate with required entrepreneurial capacity and business acumen.

To overcome this, we have devised a propensity test (kind of a basic psychometric test with no right or wrong answer) to test the fitment of the candidate.

We rolled this out using the Eklavvya platform and subsequently, our manual activities involved in the process have been reduced considerably.

The platform is quite user-friendly and caters to our requirement of candidate registration, multi-lingual support, image proctoring, report generation etc.

We look forward to a continued support from the Eklavvya team. Thanks.
