New York, NY, April 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink:XDSL) (“the Company”) today announced that it has entered into a stock purchase agreement with AIRobotica Services Limited (“AIRobotica”), a Bangalore, India-based technology company focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). In its first two years in business, AIRobotica has already signed contracts or is developing projects for entities in government, manufacturing, healthcare, automotive, retail, real estate and logistics industries.
In addition to third-party contracts, the new division will support the commercialization of existing and future mPhase technology. The division’s goal is to expand its core team to encompass a wide range of applications, creating a one-stop shop for custom solutions in AI, MI, robotic process automation (RPA), AI/ML solutions for SAP and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). One of the company’s initial commercial technologies is a Chatbot that can mimic human interaction as the front-end of customer service applications, but this is just the first in a long-term plan to develop technologies targeting multiple industries.
“AIRobotica has assembled exactly the kind of team that I have been looking for to help complete and complement our mPhase projects,” explained Verus CEO Anshu Bhatnagar. “But just as importantly, they also represent a turnkey revenue center, with projects in work that can make this division self-supporting and profitable. We are aligning with AIRobotica right at the point where they are transitioning from their development phase to their revenue phase, so the timing could not be better. We expect this business unit to have a solid triple digit growth rate with the potential to exceed $10M in sales during its first year subject to funding to be provided by mPhase.”
The Company intends to add to the AIRobotica talent pool via some key hires in coming months. While the initial goal is to generate business via specific contracts, an equally important goal is to create (over time) a bankable collection of intellectual property that can be adapted for additional applications.
Terms of the acquisition will be available in conjunction with public filings. Interested investors can visit the AIRobotica website to explore this new mPhase operating unit in greater detail. https://airoboticatech.com/
