The platform uses biometric based identification to both register workers and job seekers. The process begins with mass registration of employment seekers to build a digital pool of job seekers. From this digital pool, job seekers are allocated for worker requests collected from factories in the industry park. This platform logs and profiles the recruitment status of each allocated jobseeker and indexes each transaction data for data analytics as well as visualization.
