Remitout- Startup Story

The co-founders of Remitout were both shocked by the time taken to fulfill the whole process of transferring money. With the increased demand for money transfer, the traditional method was not the best option. Nafees Dadi always wanted to do something to help those students with the money-wiring process. His role in the development and growth of Remitout is too crucial due to the basic thought process behind it. He noticed that the time taken by each parent to fill up the form and complete the transaction process was quite high.

And another essential thing noticed by him was that even after consuming so much time, there is always greater room for mistakes. Mistakes made in the application form can actually cancel the transaction nullifying the efforts and time usage. Hence, the rise of Remitout was initiated after the whole scenario and calculation.  While doing a basic search on the project, the co-founders of Remitout realized that India is listed in the second position for migrated students after China. Making them affirm their decision of initiating the project because, the higher the number of students away from the country for education, the more the need to find a good alternative to the traditional method.

A few sessions with the team and discussion then led to the creation of the now known Remitout platform with a detailed workflow system.

The students were delighted with the overall experience and got a few of their friends to register with them.
