The company has also collaborated with some government departments such as the NADRA analyzing the data to detect population demographics, support intelligence and investigation.
The core of this technology is examining the statistics instead of keeping it for record.
“We live in a digital era which means data is the new currency. Traditionally, a lot of data technology was for record keeping or transaction processing. We are based on analytics, how to understand people’s behavior, network planning and how to make better decisions based on the data.”
