About us


eDakia - ई-डाकिया


Today in this digital world with Mobile, Voice Call, SMS, Internet, 3G and E-Mail, still it's really hard to send or share hard copy or Rich text documents with anyone who is not on Internet or not having an E-Mail ID. We ourself look out for a Cyber-Cafe or FAX for the aided help and end up paying whopping price even for a single page according to our market research.


Problem


Reality is only 7% population of India is on Internet and hence 93% don't even have an Email-ID. We can not deny the fact that E-Mail is the best application ever built and it's the primary reason we are connected to this digital world. On the other side, paper is used for everything e.g. bills, reports, forms, invoices, proofs, agreements, photos etc and this 93% of population either use Post, Courier service for passive transfer or FAX, cyber cafe for instant transfer.

Fax has it's own limitations including huge hardware cost, data loss issues and primarily need both sender and receiver on the machine at the very moment. Some applications help to send fax to email but FAX penetration is 8 times lower than Pakistan and is obsolete in Indian aspect.


Vision


Our vision is to provide a simple, instant and easy-to-use interface to help every individual send and receive documents irrespective of computer, Internet knowledge. We are leveraging mobile number as the identity on our DIGIT ONLY based system.


Solution


We have built a low cost hardware using off-the-shelf products which includes a Canon all-in-one printer-scanner, any Android Tablet and 3G Internet Stick. Our Software beautifully integrates with them and with just 2 clicks people can send documents by entering sender and recipients mobile number.

Our system keep the documents safe forever and generates a Doc ID for each shared document. SMS acknowledges about document transfer and shares Doc ID between Sender and Receiver. They can now download it at their convenience on Mobile, Laptop, Cyber Cafe by visiting http://www.edakia.in/receive and entering just their mobile number and Doc ID.

People acknowledged it as Document Saving Store like Banks are used for Money saving

Also, a person having mobile number can now send E-Mail to anyone in this world with this powerful system. One can write a letter/application/compaint on a piece of paper and using our system can send it directly to an email without having english and typing proficiency as every mobile user internally have an E-Mail ID and document(s) are emailed using their E-Mail ID e.g. {9811xxxxxx}@edakia.in

It's about empowering Indians that now you can E-Mail to anyone in this world
