Kozhikode: Tracing your missing valuables is no longer a difficult task. A group of youngsters here has developed a website named Missingkart.com which has come in handy for the flood-affected people to locate their goods with just two clicks.
The brains behind the website are K. Pradeep and C.P. Hashir, co-founders, Divya Lakshmi and Digna, developers, and Geethu Gopi, tester. Their startup company is incubated at the UL Cyber Park.
“Tell us about what you lost or what went missing and get your valuables back with just two clicks,” they say. “This is similar to OLX, where one can register and report the lost items by uploading the photograph, detailing the feature of the product and also the date, time and location where the product was lost. For example, if it is a wallet, one can mention its colour, the amount in it and the other documents in the description option after registering in it. The people who find things can also give the information,” said Pradeep.
The platform can prevent the misuse of stolen items being sold at shops. “We are also working on the option of linking with the cyber cell, especially in the case of mobile phones. We will have an option of uploading the ID number of the mobile phones, which will help us track them,” he added.
Missingkart can be used as a common platform for lost and found items and for reclaiming important items/documents in the wake of the floods. The government website Keralarescue.in launched during the floods has included Missingkart in its other sector services category. It has also been selected by Kerala Police among the ten startup projects beneficial for the police department.
The Missingkart team has already presented its project to the higher officials of the department and is waiting for its approval. The services of the platform are free and the system is already implemented and ready for use....
