India and US-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform Icertis donated ₹25 lakh to help those fighting the coronavirus. In a partnership with Pune Municipal Corporation, Icertis donated the amount to ensure the safety of doctors, nurses and staff at Naidu Hospital.

With the funds, the staff at the hospital can avail personal protection equipment, including N95 masks, gowns, and gloves, hand sanitizer dispensers and Viral transport media (VTM) kits, which protect test samples in transit to the lab.

The employees of Icertis got together and donated the ‘lunch money’ of four-weeks to Naidu Hospital, which is Pune’s designated COVID-19 hospital.

“We at Icertis began asking around to find out how we could celebrate and support these vital members of our community. We also realized that early assistance would have the most impact, so we wanted to move fast. The conversations quickly led to the recognition that ensuring healthcare providers have access to PPE throughout the crisis will be essential to Pune winning the battle against COVID-19,” wrote co-founder Monish Darda in an official blog.

Icertis staff is based out of Pune and all have been given work from home in the wake of coronavirus.


Maharashtra is one of the worst affected states in the country with 107 infected and two dead. Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray has announced a curfew in the state to contain the spread of the virus.
