AuthBridge, a global background verification and risk mitigation company, has announced its tie-up with Baxi, an on demand bike taxi company as exclusive background screening partners. As an exclusive partner, AuthBridge will conduct background verification of Baxi’s ‘Buddies’, the bike taxi riders associated with the company. Baxi is India’s first on-demand bike taxi service that operates with commercially-licensed two wheelers.
On this occasion, Ajay Trehan, CEO, AuthBridge said, “Baxi has very aggressive growth plans and we are glad to support their expansion with background verification of all new Baxi Buddies, thereby helping Baxi provide safe and reliable services to their customers across multiple cities.”
This announcement follows Baxi’s plans of on-boarding 10,000 buddies to improve last-mile connectivity across cities in the current financial year. Baxi currently operates in Gurgaon and Faridabad and will be launching operations across Haryana in the coming months. AuthBridge will play a vital role in verifying these new riders.
“Technology is what links us. At AuthBridge, we use the latest technology and advanced algorithms to deliver fast and accurate background screening results. This will help Baxi ensure customer safety while on-boarding buddies quickly” said Ajay.
Ashutosh Johri, Co-founder & CEO at Baxi said, “The arrangement with AuthBridge allows us to pre-screen the individuals who approach us to buy bikes and become part of the Baxi network. This helps us provide an added level of security to the end customer, and also gives comfort to the lenders to offer excellent financing terms to buy these commercial bikes. Over time, since most of the other operators are using the same service, we can create a verified list of bikers, on the lines of CIBIL, which can act as a deterrent for any negative behaviour or infraction on their part.”
Together, AuthBridge and Baxi are expected to create a safe and powerful two wheeler transport infrastructure across the country.
