Unipe: Revolutionizing the Indian Workforce and Enterprises Through Financial Inclusion
Unipe's software platform seamlessly integrates with existing workforce management and business workflows of employers.
Bangalore, India: Payrocket Technology Pvt Ltd, through its innovative platform Unipe, is transforming the financial landscape for Indian enterprises and their employees. Unipe aims to revolutionize the underserved $10 billion payroll finance market in India.
Unipe's software platform seamlessly integrates with existing workforce management and business workflows of employers. This facilitates streamlined salary processing, digital onboarding, automated compliance, and efficient remittance. Unipe also addresses common issues like delayed salary payouts (faced by 75% of workers) and fulfills the need for early access to earned wages.
On the employee side, Unipe offers a tailored financial services app to combat credit deprivation for over 200 million formally employed Indian workers. This app is crucial for low-income individuals facing irregular payouts and requiring ad-hoc financial support.
Unipe's impact extends beyond mere statistics. The platform has successfully reached over 250 enterprises and penetrated underserved industrial clusters across 20 cities in 3 states. With a strategic vision, Unipe aims to disburse approximately $250 million in credit to empower Indian enterprises and workers nationwide within the next three years.
Unipe sets new standards with its rapid 15-minute turnaround time and unique 30-day credit cycle for employers. This user-centric approach outshines existing credit options.
Founded in 2022 by IIT graduates Anupam Acharya, Abhijit Verma, and Sahil Arora, Unipe is backed by a distinguished group of investors such as Afore Capital, Peer Cheque, DevVC, 1947 Rise, Good Capital, and angel investors like Kunal Shah (CRED), Miten Sampat (CRED), Nitin Gupta (Uni), and Dhruv Bahl (BharatPe). The startup is rapidly growing, currently with a $15 million annual disbursement run rate and a spotless zero NPA track record.
Unipe's future ambitions include:
- Embedding its platform in the business workflow of enterprises for various functions.
- Expanding market reach significantly.
- Becoming the leading consumer financial app for the Indian workforce.
CEO Anupam Acharya highlights: "Unipe supports enterprises by providing custom-built short-term lending products to suit their needs for 24/7 credit access. We begin by solving their payroll needs first and foremost. Employees, the fundamental driver of business growth, receive their salaries on time and have access to advances with a single tap. Our platform has improved business productivity for our clients by over 20% and reduced attrition by more than 40% in the first three months alone!"
Rinku Lamba, Director of Franknights Services Pvt Ltd, shares his experience: "Payroll financing from Unipe has allowed us to access immediate funds to cover payroll expenses, ensuring timely employee payments. This has helped us avoid cash flow gaps and maintain positive employee relationships."
