KVIC launches single umbrella pan-India e-marketing platform
New Delhi:In As a fusion of 'Digital India' and 'Made in India', the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), launched its first in-house single-umbrella e-marketing system – Khadi Institution Management and Information System (KIMIS), recently.
The system can be accessed from anywhere in pan-India for the sale and purchase of Khadi and Village Industries products.
The system was inaugurated by Vinai Kumar Saxena, Chairman, KVIC. He said that since KVIC firmly believes in transparency in all of its aspects, it was need of the hour to develop some in-house single umbrella billing software for sale and purchase that could be used to monitor round-the-clock from any remotest place.
"It gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction that KVIC IT team has developed such a full-proof software in-house, which might have cost millions of rupees if bought from any third party. This in-house software will not only give a real-time data of sales, it will also give the updated status of stocks of our bhawans and godowns, subsequently smoothing the planning procedure, along with controlling the inventory of KVIC," he added.
Giving more insights about the system and its functioning, he told, "Not only 480 Khadi institutions and our showrooms are linked with this billing software but it is also very useful in raising demand and supply of goods in high demand, from institutions located at faraway places in seconds. Even I am aware of the sale at far-off places in seconds. It will also nullify the chances of any dearth or burden of any bhawan."
Saxena said, "Since this system is at the nascent stage, few hiccups might arise sooner or later." "In the earlier system, our staff had to face a lot of problems in deletion or updating of bills, but now with this new software, it is now a game of seconds, with an eagle's eye of the server at our head office. We will provide proper training to all our staff so that they can be accustomed to the new software soon," he added.
