IOT competency refers to our ability to develop and deploy applications on a general purpose embedded systems such as the Raspberry Pi. IVR competency refers to our ability to develop touchtone and speech recognition based IVR applications.

Examples of some successful deliveries are as follows:

  • A consumer product that controls Internet access on all networked devices in the home network. The iOS/Android app was developed for a startup based in San Francisco, USA. The app communicates with the backend servers (Linux, Apache™, MySQL™, and PHP™) deployed on AWS using REST APIS to send commands and to receive the status of networked devices. This project also involved the implementation of an e-commerce website for customers to sign up for the subscription services.
  • A customer feedback application used by a call center in Atlanta, USA. The application was developed using Java™ technology and deployed in private cloud. It uses Apache Tomcat™ web server and MySQL™ as the relational database server. The front-end was written using JSP™/Java™. The web/database servers are deployed on CentOS™ Linux OS. Thousands of customer feedback records are created everyday either by the call center customer service executives or directly by customers via web/emails. The application facilitates the vendor management team to generate reports based on customer feedback in real time. The reports are efficiently compiled and are easy to analyze for quick action. Load balancing is used to distribute the traffic across multiple web servers. The MySQL™ database is mirrored across multiple servers for increased availability and efficient performance. The key technical challenge involved in this application was ensuring 24x7 up time, performance, robustness, and scalability.
  • Healthcare portal with features such as Call a Doctor (web based real-time consultation with doctors via phone, chat, and even video), Managing Health Records (facility to organize patient healthcare records in a systematic, interoperable format), Home Based Diagnostics (scheduling home-based diagnostics tests), and Expert Opinion (patients upload their medical records, which are reviewed by specialists offline and provide their feedback report). The application was developed using Joomla™ content management system (CMS) that leverages on LAMP (Linux, Apache™, MySQL™, and PHP™) technology.
