India’s first Mentoring Platform – Procademia

Chennai,India based software service company Quadruple founded Procademia, India’s first mentoring platform for the students in India.  The project was originally inspired by their experience and hardship from their earlier ventures.  They saw a huge gap of skill shortage with the students in India .

To fill this huge gap, the founders of Quadruple decided to build an eco-system, a mentoring platform, which enables the students to get access to the experts and professionals across the globe in their field of interest.  Also, the platform enables the industry thought leaders to share their knowledge through blog, articles and research journals to the student community as part of mentorship.

Procademia is India’s first mentoring platform.  It was launched in 2013 and has already reached to the thousands of students and professionals.  Around 280 experts and professionals have registered as mentor in the Procademia.

Procademia is open for registration for professionals and students.

Monitoring Routes with Google Maps

Transportation and logistics is one industry, in particular, that is poised to resolve many pain points and realize numerous benefits from the adoption of geospatial solutions. In an industry where inefficient asset tracking and unexpected traffic issues lead to higher costs and delays, implementing mapping solutions can help reduce these inefficiencies by providing real-time traffic updates and improved route optimization and asset tracking capabilities.

Specifically, introducing mapping solutions like Google Maps for Business can help office users easily track drivers and assets in the field through GPS and location services while also monitoring routes with real-time traffic updates. This information helps users more quickly and easily deploy drivers to new jobs based on their location and current conditions. This allows for more efficient route planning, which can increase productivity and customer satisfaction while decreasing costs.

Furthermore, geo can help transportation companies improve environmental and regulatory compliance and enhance supply chain, facilities and emergency management capabilities.
