Teja Gudluru’s UDo is all Set to Unleash A New Era


Teja Gudluru's UDo is all set to unleash a New Era

Recognizing the substantial gap in the application development sphere for creating robust apps capable of delivering real-time, high-quality content promptly, Mr. Teja Gudluru, a seasoned expert with a background in the training industry and a serial entrepreneur, conceived UDo. This Android app was created with a clear mission: to empower individuals to access viable solutions for their problems anytime, anywhere.

UDo serves as a platform for people to get connected with thousands of experts for seeking appropriate advice in over a hundred categories. An online app that connects people offline, UDo is an excellent peerless app that aims to solve people's problems in four simple steps.

A person seeking advice needs to create an account using Facebook/ Twitter/ Google+ or he may simply sign-up to register, and then he can search experts browsing the huge databases. He is linked with the expert of choice to speak about his query.

As soon as he has his questions answered, he needs to make payment for the advice using Paytm. Speaking about solutions provided by the app, Mr. Gudluru, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of UDo, says, "How many times has someone called a friend for an opinion on something right before making a choice?

But there are times when even a friend can't make a decision when there are higher stakes involved because friends are not experts in everything. Life is beyond just texting for help – UDo helps people get connected to their UDo buddy and get talking!"

From travel and relationship advice to handling a difficult boss or career guidance, UDo has on-demand express advice in life's difficult situations or, sometimes, simply tips for fashion, cooking, and many more. UDo is on the runway of housing a broad Expert portfolio that will accommodate verified experts who can guide everything.

UDo as a platform benefits every pillar of its service – users who need help, experts who have time to spare and companies who are looking for specific databases to reach out to get assistance from the app.

This makes it a very accommodating and sustainable model. With expert advice at your fingertips and the ability to connect to an actual verified person instantaneously, UDo is a complete package that has the potential to become the market leader in search and assisted services.

UDo – You Do!

UDo is a colloquial abbreviation of the word You Do! Everyone faces several situations in life when there is a need for guidance and advice that helps to swim through difficulty and win. More often than not, people live in denial of this fact.

Be it a student, an employee, a boss, a husband, a parent, or even a CEO. Often, people do not want to expose their vulnerability in expressing their incompetence or lack of understanding on some issue as most fear their credibility taking a hit.

As an example, a manager might face problems facing a particular employee but doesn't want his/her boss to know about this discomfort. UDo provides a platform where this manager can connect to a Leadership Development expert and take guidance on handling such difficult employees.

Therefore, while the world, including their boss, may credit them for effectively managing a challenging employee, behind the scenes, it's us! That's where UDo comes in – we stand beside you every step of the way!

The UDo app features a dedicated UDo buddy that assists users in various areas such as job guidance and training, mentorship, professional advice, coding and development support, relationship counselling, psychiatric support, travel and logistics assistance, finding travel companions and routes, retail and FMCG guidance, religious assistance, and numerous other verticals.

Who can benefit?

As UDo is an Android mobile application, there lies a huge market since any individual in the age range of nearly fifteen to more than sixty can benefit from UDo's services and may become a User or expert.

The App's broad portfolio of consumers encompasses major sections of User categories, including Students, Professors, Colleges, Working professionals, Retired professionals, Industries, FMCG, e-commerce, Government and IT/ITES companies, Doctors, psychiatrists, Nutritional and Veterinary experts, Media and Film Production houses and more.

Nevertheless, the UDo team recognizes the inherent risks associated with this unconventional concept, wherein users are required to make payments for receiving simple advice—a notion that is non-existent in Indian culture.

The biggest challenge lies in getting people used to the concept and acquainting them about the benefit they will get from it.

With an aspiration to be the world's most preferred expert advice and customer outreach mobile app, UDo makes persistent endeavours to position itself as the best company to be associated with.

The team UDo has developed an Attract, Innovate, and Manage (AIM) Strategy and strides on the path shown toward achieving the aforesaid vision.

The team strives to Attract users and businesses alike with innovative marketing campaigns and ethical business practices. The team Innovate efficiently and responsibly to create seamless, user-friendly, and efficient technology platforms, and Manage employee expectations effectively and nurture them to grow professionally and personally.

The team has worked out robust plans with set targets to be achieved every month, which will act as guiding beacons towards carving out the success path.

The UDO Difference

The team believes that the uniqueness of the app, accompanied by its serviceability, is set to grab the eyeballs of the majority of people in the market. Elaborating upon the strengths of the app, Mr. Gudluru says, "UDo will disrupt how people see search and review-based products.

Our uniqueness is in the model where it is open to all platforms to sign up as an expert and start making money by providing real-time advice. We have no immediate competition in this model."

What does the future hold?

With its unparalleled capabilities, the app is empowered to serve and develop several sections of society, which may lead to the unfolding of a new era. Holding onto its vision for the next five years, UDo has planned to target specific verticals or services for a certain period to establish its market.

"Don't train to get paid, get paid to Train"

As quoted by Shri Pranab Mukherjee, Hon'ble President of India, "Youth of our country are our future". A groundbreaking, innovative app, UDo has been developed as a platform that not only offers assistance for every need of the student population but also targets to reshape the youth employment space in India with an effort to repress unemployment.

UDo provides the opportunity for students to serve as experts. They can gain exposure and get paid while contributing to the welfare of people. In UDo's marketing words, "Don't train to get paid….get paid to Train".

As an attempt to enhance employment capabilities in India, UDo's Project PARAS aims to showcase trained students to MSMEs across India as their IT experts.

UDo has partnered with MSME to establish a platform where MSMEs can have their websites or e-commerce sites developed for free or at a nominal cost by accessing UDo's skilled pool of experts through the app. This initiative aligns with the government's Skill Development and Digital India initiatives, furthering their objectives.

There are numerous other ways students can be associated with Udo as experts. They can guide IT troubleshooters for the basic routers, laptops, Mobile, or Printers for users in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities.

They can serve as on-demand experts for Start-ups for basic services like designing, social media marketing, influencers for marketing products, services, and apps in colleges, etc. They may also serve as tutors as well as interns.

UDo's Vision

  • UDo aims to connect IT professionals working in IT and ITES companies with Students to guide, mentor, and refer them to their companies. UDo teams will market to the IT employees so that they can earn money while assisting the nation in improving its employability and also get paid by their companies for referring profiles.

  • UDo's B-B marketing team will focus on signing up recruitment vendors on a commercial basis who are looking for sourcing profiles. The recruiters will sign up as experts under the jobs category. The users can dial in free of cost into UDo and give their preliminary interviews right from their phone without the initial hassle of CVs, etc.

  • UDo is planning to enter a partnership with overseas educational consultants across the country on a commercial basis to provide free consultation to students interested in studying abroad.

  • UDo is doing all the groundwork to develop into an FMCG, Mobile recharge, and E-commerce outreach partner targeting students as users.
