Businesses will be able to set up a cloud communication platform with a Covid SOS feature

Bharti Airtel (Airtel), on Saturday said it has rolled out a range of Covid support initiatives for customers by leveraging its digital platforms.

This feature is particularly useful for medium to small sized companies who can set up a secure helpline instantly without any in-house telco infrastructure, the company said in a statement.

Airtel has integrated an easily accessible bouquet of Covid support resources and related information in the Airtel Thanks app’s Explore section, it said, adding that the users need to download the latest version of Airtel Thanks app (iOS, Android), go to the Explore section and click on the Covid support banners to access relevant resources.

“Business of all sizes can set up a Free Covid Helpline for their employees within two minutes with Airtel IQ – a cloud communication platform. Airtel is giving 5,000 minutes with each Helpline account so that businesses can stay connected with their employees and organise their efforts,” Airtel said.

Covid SOS

It will have feature called Covid SOS that aggregates verified and updated contacts for important supplies such as medicines, oxygen, plasma donors, ambulance, hospital beds (regular, O2, ICU), and testing centres.

With a few clicks, the platform connects users to these service providers/resources and tries to ensure that users do not have to waste precious time to access this data. All the information available on Covid SOS is painstakingly verified by their teams. The platform is powered by Airtel IQ, it said.

Airtel Thanks users can also book a vaccination slot for themselves and their loved ones through the app. With the Cowin platform APIs integrated with Airtel Thanks app, information on nearest vaccination centres and available slots is updated on real time basis, the company added.
