ITC Infotech and Chirp announce New Strategic Partnership
ITC Infotech and Chirp announced a strategic partnership that will enable the companies to collaboratively develop solutions for clients across the globe.
“At ITC Infotech, we are committed to leveraging technology innovations for our clients. Chirp’s ‘data over sound’ solution lends itself efficiently to industries we work with. This partnership brings in unique synergies, giving us at ITC Infotech an opportunity to offer a significant technology- advantage to our clients. With Chirp, we are looking forward to accelerated development of client-specific, industryspecific solutions,” said Sushma Rajagopalan, MD & CEO, ITC Infotech.
Transferring data over sound takes advantage of speaker and microphoneequipped devices of any kind, by using these devices as audio encoders and decoders. Any device embedded with the ‘data over sound’ technology can ‘hear’and ‘share’ the data.
The key advantage of this technology is the ability to broadcast small amounts of digital data to multiple devices without the need for pairing the devices or knowing the device IDof receiving devices. The technology also works without the necessity of any other form of connectivity, such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, allowing ‘networking’ of multiple platforms and devices to be done offline in some cases.
These solutions will be specifically developed for clients in industries including Banking Financial Services &Insurance (BFSI), Consumer Packaged Goods, Manufacturing & Automotive, Retail, Airlines and Hospitality. Chirp’s technology has already been deployed globally on mass-scale, with hundreds of millions of devices currently connecting and transmitting data with this technology.
