SHARKID allows users to control contacts with Smart Phonebook App

A Smart Phonebook app has recently launched in Ahmedabad named SharkID. It is a Bootstrapped StartUp with capital investment of $2 million. SharkID is a joint venture between e-Procurement Technologies and Silver Touch Technologies.


Founded by Ramesh Sinha, SharkID is a smart phonebook app that auto updates itself and focusses on creating digital card format of contacts distinguished as a personal card and digital business card. The user registers with mobile number (verified through OTP) and fills in multiple contact fields that create his/her Personal Card which is private by default. Backed by a highly scalable Service-oriented architecture with full stack technology, SharkID deploys a Big Data Database Mongo and Redis for storage and Encrypted streaming for data security.


The advantages include that if next time the user calls/receives a call from unknown number SharkID will tell that who is calling and how many of the user friends know him/her, it also helps to Know who all have saved users number and remove their number from a stranger’s smart phonebook. It gives power to the users to control who can have their number. It also allows the user to have a common universal SharkID for different contact details such as, mobile, phone, fax, IP phone, Skype, email, website, social handles, biz card, emergency numbers, address, etc.


Speaking at the launch, Ramesh Sinha, Founder, SharkID, said, “At the outset, we had decided to design a product that is disruptive and accelerates the pace of change. SharkID meshes technologies to actually smarten the smartphone and puts choice in the user’s hands, for once. We all have multiple digital coordinates today – mobile number, email, instagram, Twitter, FB, LinkedIn, etc…which makes for an increasingly cluttered digital profile, making it almost impossible to recall or store. SharkID enables convergence – share your single-point contact and the recipient will get all your coordinates. Morever, Digital Business Cards that can be shared easily – no hassle of carrying actual visiting cards. Because you can control who has access to your card, you choose who can contact you.”


Elaborating further, he added, “Due to our technology DNA, we have access to a good talent pool. Backed by a robust technology backbone, today we have 80,000 downloads with 75,000 cards exchanged and 100,000 calls made. SharkID boasts best-of-breed features and the user can do a Single click call, email, SMS, WhatsApp, etc…directly. There are additional features such as searching by hashtag and grouping, enabled by Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.”


Currently, the company plans to deepen the user’s experience and expand the user pool across India to 10 million by March 2019.
