It all started with an incident that happened with one of our founders in 2017 like many of you may also have gone through. “Wallet Theft” - sounds like a very familiar and common problem in the world, right? We all know the hustle of losing your wallet and the challenge of retrieving those IDs and important documents that we lost with the wallet.
No one was thinking of the worldwide widespread problem of wallet theft at that time but the concept and idea of Arista Vault’s Smart Wallet was born through that one incident.
2017: Initial Idea of the Revolution
In 2017, Miss Purvi Roy, Col. K.K. Singh, and Atul Gupta founded Arista (Sanskrit word that means "unhurt''), with the goal of providing security and safety in people’s everyday life. Innovative ideas don't wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. A group of technologists, designers, and business professionals collaborated to create a ground-breaking, high-tech intelligent device that will protect, simplify, and relieve the everyday grind by solving the problem of theft & lost goods.
2018: Introducing “Wallet-Bot”
It took over a year for the technological and physical design of the “World’s First-Ever Alive Wallet” that was able to protect itself from getting lost or theft after which in 2018 finally “Wallet-Bot” was introduced. The product was launched through Amazon's exclusive Launchpad and received a massive response across the country, with individuals not only buying but also gifting it.
The company has been named "Innovative Tech Company of 2018" by the Agni Govt. program. The first year of the brand was very good because of the enormous response from customers, Arista Vault was named as the "3rd Top Emerging Brand of India" by Amazon.
