IntrCity acquires GoldSeat, Pristyn Care raises $53 million, and more
MPL has acquired e-sports gaming platform GamingMonk as it aims to build a full suite of esports and broadcasting capabilities.
IntrCity on Tuesday announced it had acquired GoldSeat, a Delhi-based startup that offers the in-bus application and telematics platform. The company said the acquisition would help strengthen its mobility platform, which manages the IntrCity SmartBus fleet across 14 states in India. GoldSeat will also be integrated within IntrCity’s SmartBus fleet solutions.
According to IntrCity, GoldSeat will bring capabilities such as GPS based location monitoring & tracking, CCTV feed management, multi-network Wi-Fi, passenger information & announcement system. The company added that the integration would help enable upcoming capabilities around AI-based driver fatigue alert and integrating with OEMs for better service to operators.
“IoT is the key technology component for automation & comprehensive monitoring of service levels on SmartBus fleet, as the operations are remote, geographically spread & overnight. With a rapidly expanding fleet size, we needed a standardized IoT platform that can be quickly deployed on any bus, and which can talk seamlessly with our back-end intelligent platform. This technology helps us in achieving that objective,” Kapil Raizada, co-founder at IntrCity, said in a release.
