Authlink enhances transparency and traceability in Unicas’s covid-19 relief kit distribution efforts

Unicas has launched the #NoOneSleepsHungry campaign to aid the covid-19 relief efforts in India, and Authlink is assisting to promote transparency, accountability and traceability throughout the endeavour. 

Unicas’s Initiative:

The second wave of covid-19 is causing hunger and unemployment levels to rise across India, and a lot of families have been left vulnerable because of it. Unicas is the popular blockchain-based financial platform Cashaa’s Indian subsidiary and has multiple physical branches operating in different parts of India. Unicas’s team kickstarted the #NoOneSleepsHungry campaign to provide food and other essentials to families in need across the most affected areas in the country. The initiative launched under the title ‘Crypto for COVID’ has already been helpful in successfully distributing over a thousand relief kits across affected areas in Jaipur and Delhi. 

The Challenges:

The campaign started in areas like Delhi and Jaipur where Unicas’s team used their existing resources and infrastructure to distribute the relief kits. However, as Unicas’s campaign started to extend across different regions in India, it became imperative to set up an efficient system to effectively manage the inventory as well as the relief kit distribution. It also became necessary to track the kits in real-time from start to finish, to prevent hurdles along the way as well as to assist the affected families on a timely basis. Otherwise, it could become a challenge to efficiently distribute kits as intended in all the right locations at the right time. 

Also, ensuring the security of information related to the campaign was deemed essential to prevent data tampering and manipulation. Moreover, maintaining the transparency of the relief kits’ supply chains was also a requirement to advance the campaign efforts even further, as was establishing accountability for each transaction along the supply chain for the benefit of donors, stakeholders and other beneficiaries.


The Solution:

Authlink’s digitally-driven platform offers a range of solutions that ensure the traceability and authenticity of the products in the ecosystem, as well as the transparency and efficiency of their supply chain networks. The platform also offers high data security and privacy protection.

Authlink teamed up with Supplyz, which is a B2B hyperlocal supply chain management startup, to provide Unicas with a safe, efficient and manageable supply and delivery tracking system and boost the organization’s covid-19 relief efforts. Supplyz has been ensuring that the delivery of relief kits across various regions occurs smoothly. The following processes are being managed for Unicas’s campaign by Authlink.

  • Maintaining a record of the total number of kits distributed, allotted and packed by Unicas
  • Creating an accurate record of the distribution areas successfully covered under the campaign
  • Systematically tracking and recording inventory details concerning the supplies yet to be distributed to the affected families
  • Creating smart tags for the packages of each relief kit to make them easily traceable and manageable
  • Updating the relief kit journey and status in real-time to ensure timely delivery in affected areas
  • Keeping a clear record of the relief kit’s progress even after distribution to ensure data accountability and as a future reference.
