Based out of Jaipur and founded in 2015, Qriyo is a platform providing evaluated tutors for more than 400 courses in academics, co-curricular, extracurricular and fitness segment. They keep a list of teachers in their database. Before putting them in the database they do their thorough evaluation. They note their location, experience, salary expectation once they pass the evaluation. A learner can book a course with them via the phone or using our website. They ask the customer about their requirement, location etc. As soon as they get a request they start doing matchmaking based on several parameters and find out a list of suitable teachers. Then they select the best teacher from that list. The matchmaking is performed by an algorithm that they have built. The selected teacher is sent for a demo and if the learner likes the demo they start the course or else they send another teacher from the list. The teacher goes to the home at a time that the learner prefers.
Qriyo has a dedicated tech team working on their innovative product. Sales team to pitch about them to the customers. Content team to make courses and do every other writing assignments. Operations team looking after offline requirements and organizing Qriyo events. On receiving a customer request, they take information like location, course needed etc and then employ a matchmaking algorithm to match a teacher with the requirement. It’s the precision of their matchmaking algorithm that about 90% of our demos are converted.
Qriyo aspires to be the de-facto go-to place for consumers and providers for the learning based services and at the same time generate employment opportunities. Their future plans include expansion to Delhi, Mumbai, and other cities very soon.
