The global expansion of eLockr marks the beginning of OnGrid’s international journey by foraying into the Middle East and South East Asian regions.

The tremendous response and robust success in the Indian market have paved the way for eLockr’s global expansion. With a proven track record of issuing over 2 million credentials that have been verified directly and indirectly by over 20,000 organisations, eLockr is projected to make an indelible mark and move on an exponential growth trajectory in the international markets.

In a future defined by the prevalence of verifiable credentials, trust and authentication are paramount for industries. In tandem, eLockr has opened new avenues to seamless verification of credentials, whilst ensuring that the verifiers are authorised and the verification occurs with the candidate’s explicit consent. Backed by cutting-edge technology, eLockr offers unparalleled service from verifying past employment history to confirming education and academic details.

Commenting on the global expansion of eLockr, Piyush Peshwani, co-founder & CEO at OnGrid & eLockr said, “We are excited to take eLockr global, and work with employers and education institutes to help them embrace higher data security and privacy by issuing verifiable and tamper-proof credentials to their alumni – credentials that can empower their alumni, credentials that they can use forever to establish trust via instant and digital verification – be it with new employers, or for banking services, getting travel visas. In essence, anything that enables the alumni to get access to products, services, opportunities.”

Leading the charge in transforming the global HR industry, the free-to-use HR 2.0 platform allows organisations to issue employment credentials to their ex-employees in a way that they can be swiftly verified and accessed digitally by new employers. In tandem with this, it offers a remarkable opportunity to the employers, to issue digitally verifiable, tamper-proof experience certificates to ex-employees at zero cost, which can then be verified by new employers via eLockr.

Digital employment credentials are actively mitigating the possibility of fraudulent employment claims. At the same time, aligned with international regulatory compliances, in relation to security, consent, and privacy adherence eLockr empowers ex-employees, by allowing them to get their ex-employment records verified instantly, anytime, anywhere, with complete consent and control. With this eLockr has charted the path towards building a fraudulent-proof employment ecosystem.

Beyond the issuance of digitally verifiable employment credentials, eLockr allows companies to attain attrition insights, helping them know where their ex-employee have joined. Further, they can also earn credits for every ex-employee verified on eLockr which can be redeemed against BGV. With eLockr’s free anonymous surveys, organisations stand a chance to receive candid feedback from ex-employees, while also receiving information regarding their market position based on eight parameters.
