Welcome to the world of vishing, or voice phishing, a technique used to trick gullible customers to part with confidential personal banking details. Vishing uses voice calls to steal identities and financial information. Such “vishing attacks” are designed to secure financial information in a short span by instilling fear in individuals. These calls are difficult to trace because they primarily ride through the internet.

For many Indians like Kardam, financial inclusion has also been an unpleasant introduction to the dark underbelly of hi-tech banking frauds.

Trade show / exhibition visitor info gathering mobile app for Scarlet Splendour

Author: Niel Hirjee - Published 2015-10-09 12:32

Scarlet Splendour is a design movement — lovingly and gently envisaged by sibling team Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia.

Their mobile app is intended to be used by Scarlet Splendour personnel manning a booth during a trade show / exhibition. The app enables Scarlet Splendour personnel to enter the name and contact information of visitors, specify the product / brand in which they have expressed interest and select one of the follow-up action listed below:
1) Send Brochure
2) Send Price List
3) Schedule a Call

Optionally, a photo of the person who has visited the booth or the photo of his visiting card can also be attached to the information being entered in the mobile app. Offline mode is supported in case internet access is not available; all data gathered is stored on the device and automatically uploaded to the server when an internet connection is established.

At the end of the event, all data gathered by all Scarlet Splendour personnel via multiple mobile devices can be viewed in a single, consolidated spreadsheet.

This app is for internal use only.

Data accessed by TOI from Hong Kong Stock Exchange showed that Snapdeal's loss rose from around Rs 270 crore in March 2014 to nearly Rs 1,350 crore in March 2015 as the company shelled out $25 million (over 150 crore) a month as discounts and marketing expenses.

Snapdeal may not be an isolated case. The situation, industry experts say, is similar across e-commerce segment, and is not confined to India alone. For instance, Amazon emerged as the world's largest e-tailer recently and has been commanding a hefty premium even on stock markets, despite reporting a surprise profit last month after several quarters of losses.
