Believing in creating value for their customers, employees, and shareholders of the company, they try to meet the challenges of tomorrow with their customers. Being customer-focused, they help all their clients with this innovative approach that creates sustainable businesses and promotes efficient use of resources. Currently, they are running a survey on their clients and employees and the response they are getting is very positive, it seems to be liked by most of them.
Varlyq offers its services like software development, graphic, and UI/UX designing by following the unique approach of story-telling. They tell stories in the following ways:
1.Through Social Media
The company is active on social media platforms. They run their social media platforms with a very unique approach. They take characters from TV shows/Web series/Movies and we create a business story on them and do character animation to showcase this. They are getting a very good response to this idea.
“Agar hum kisi badi picture ka hissa nahin, to kaun hain?”
2.Through awesome designs and animations
A client desires a website/application with a better user experience, they design it for them. They are very good at designing and take pride in their philosophy and helping their clients by designing great websites and applications for them.
“Jo aankho ko lubhata hai, humara Varlyq wahi banata hai”
3. They go the extra mile to help their clients
They do limited work but help their clients with other work as well. Finding out names for business, what server to use, with mail issues, how to brand their business, etc., they do it all. They don’t just do business, they are creating a community.
Their vision is imbibed from the idea of a Sanskrit maxim Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam i.e. to create one global family for collective learning experience and opportunities across geographies and communities and build the most accessible systems for multidisciplinary aspects under one roof of education bypassing all barriers pertaining to freedom of expression in learning.
In the present global digital society educators, students, institutions, parents, and other stakeholders directly or indirectly related to the education sector are, though, active digitally but surprisingly not in a single unified educational ecosystem.
Bizivox Edtech Private Limited will provide them a common virtual space where they can come together and interact with one another for all sorts of educational requirements whether direct or indirect absolutely free without troubling their individual professional space and freedom.
Thus, they created a social media committed only for education where stakeholders can interact with one another for myriads of educational activities with little chance of getting diverted while scrolling down the posts and browsing pages.
Today, surprisingly, there is no single open-source digital platform to evaluate written answer papers where students can have the convenience to get their answers evaluated by any qualified and experienced evaluators of their own choice. To address this apparent gap, Bizivox enables students to get their written answers evaluated from anywhere in simple and easy steps by any qualified and experienced evaluators of their choice.
This arrangement gives a win-win situation to both as students (even from the remotest part of the world) can appraise their writing skill level by having their written answers evaluated from the evaluators of their choice and the evaluators get an opportunity to create their own Descripting Test Series and to earn even working from their homes.
It is a noted fact that the market is overwhelmed with myriads of paid quiz-creating applications and APIs, but strikingly there is no free open source for personalized quiz creation. The price-bands of such applications are so high that they can generally be afforded only by big players and institutions, thus, new entrants, small institutions, and individual educators with limited resources go devoid of such wonderful tools of learning and imparting education. Some educators, despite being potent talents, many a time – though unmindfully – become the bonded content creators for the big players. Thus, they lag far behind in the competition.
The Quiz Module of Bizivox is, therefore, a peerless solution to this problem where even the most resource-stricken and struggling educators and institutions can also avail of this wonderful facility for Free. These tools will not only enable them to create personalized quizzes for students seamlessly but will also help them monetize their talent and efforts.
There are numerous Job Portals today that help amateurs, professionals, and employers interact with one another to find jobs or hire employees in various sectors. But there are no such job portals that provide such facilities dedicatedly to the education sector which is partly organized and partly unorganized.
Thus, the Job Portal Module of Bizivox will act as a boon to billions of people in the world seeking part-time or full-time employment in this semi-organized market.
Apart from it, the employers of this sector will also get a hassle-free dedicated market where they can display and advertise their vacancies and requirements. This will unquestionably lead to a large number of quality resumes and quick responses.

With a mission to help, individuals and organizations understand and achieve their true growth potential, TEJ is a forward-looking organization focused on building skills needed for the 21st century.
The Delhi-based startup has been founded by Prashanta, who is an inventor and has three published patents to his credit all related to electrical power generation. Before turning towards Physics which has been his passion and venturing into research which he has been involved in over the last 15 years he has been into hardcore sales for 20 years in various verticles including timeshare, space selling, outdoor, and tires. His passion for connecting with the reality on the ground got him thinking and he dug deep into the reason for the slow adoption of electric cycles in India and the world over. On probing further and doing a random sample survey, he concluded that the main reasons for his yawning chasm that exists despite the consciousness in people about adopting green technology were
(a ) Limited Range of the electric cycle, which varies from 25 km to 40 km.
(b) Restricted usage, since these E cycles are designed to be used only on smooth city roads and cannot be used to ride on hills or off-road.
(c ) These cycles are designed for use by one person and do not have pillion riders.
(d ) These cycles are priced exorbitantly in terms of the features they offer.
Voltro Motors, a Delhi-based EV startup incorporated last year, was on the cusp of launching a prototype version of their electric motorcycle modeled on the Harley Davidson when the nationwide lockdown was announced on 24 March 2020.
Prashanta, the founder and CEO, had to momentarily shelve his plans because obtaining official approval for manufacturing their electric motorcycles became harder under these circumstances. But instead of sitting idle, Prashanta and his team decided to develop something that would not require official approvals from bodies like the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) and the International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT).
What emerged a couple of months later was the Voltron E-Cycle with a battery range of 100 km and features that offered off-road riding, pillion riding, and hill riding at just Rs 35,000.
“Before venturing into making an electric cycle, I surveyed the market for it and sought to understand why absorption levels were so low in India despite its eco-friendly and economical nature. One reason was that most e-cycles did not have adequate range. Most e-cycles in the market today have a battery range of 25 to 35 km, which creates range anxiety in the minds of users. Our e-cycles have a range of 100 km on a single charge,” says Prashanta, in an exclusive interview with The Better India.
