Screenshots of the smart theme in action

A Smart Way to Celebrate Indian Cricket!

Cricket in India is truly a religion. A religion without biases that nurtures quality talent. Cricket viewership has experienced phenomenal growth in the recent past. A report from BARC pointed out that about 93 percent of sports viewers consumed cricket. The recently held match between archrivals India and Pakistan at the ICC tourney breached the 100 million mark setting up a new record for a live streaming app, as noted by a daily. While the stats bode good for viewership, India still has 34 percent of its population that does not have television sets. More than three-fourths of the population do not have high-speed internet connections. It is here that Xploree’s smart cricket theme has emerged as a boon for cricket lovers. The latest feature introduced on Xploree AI-Keyboard is the most convenient way to keep track of a match. The smart live themes, the first of its kind on a keyboard provides cricket lovers ball by ball updates on the go, even in a low-speed internet environment. Live match updates on your fingertips without switching/enabling apps or using search engines.

 

“Smart cricket theme on a keyboard is the first of its kind in the world. We introduced the smart cricket theme feature on Xploree for cricket lovers who cannot always be in front of a television set or have enough time to open an app for getting live score updates. With Smart Cricket Themes, fans not only get live scores on the keyboard panel on their phones, but also get notified on-the-keyboard, in real-time about the fall of wickets/boundary/six. It’s like a friend informing you about an important score update, while you are on a different task. Users can also enable on-screen scorecard to keep track of scores without having to launch the keyboard” Nutan ChokkaReddy, CEO, KeyPoint Technologies Pvt. Ltd. The company that developed the Xploree AI-Keyboard.

The Scion of a Visionary Enterprise

“Our chief want in life, is, someone who shall make us do what we can. This is the service of a friend. With him we are easily great.”

 – Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Essayist & Philosopher.

 

Ever since I joined KeyPoint Technologies I have felt this innate zeal to think afresh, think beyond the ordinary and give more to the organization. The reason why each employee at KeyPoint wants to give his/her best every day, day after day is because of being led by a visionary leader. A leader who laid a foundation so strong that every employee in the organization is at ease and at their prime to contribute towards the organizational unabated growth.

 

Sunil Prasad Motaparti

02/08/1981 – 03/01/2019

Born to a revolutionary industrialist Mr. MSRV Prasad, revered for turning loss making enterprises into profit churning organizations. Sunil always had the genes and acumen to be the flag bearer of a large conglomerate, ‘The Prasad Aditya Group’ of companies.

 

The Early Years

Sunil honed his love for technology by pursuing his BS and MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Melon University, USA. After successfully completing his education, Sunil worked with Design Automation Groups with big wigs, in the Silicon Valley.

 

The Homecoming

With a keen eye on innovations, he soon realized that he was born for achieving bigger dreams. While many chose to set up their operations overseas, Sunil followed the make in India path, way before it was conceptualized by the state. He was determined to create innovative products and technologies, that would put India on to a pedestal of global reckoning. It was in this frame of mind that Sunil set up KeyPoint Technologies. An organization that came to be recognized as the light bearer of innovative input technologies for mobile devices, by introducing Adaptxt, a widely successful predictive text application for mobile phones. Sunil’s undying urge to enable his countrymen to experience technology saw him take confident strides in the domain of language technology, the domain where KeyPoint Technologies has created its own distinct mark. KeyPoint partnered and assisted many renowned OEM’s such as LG, Pioneer, Reliance with our predictive engines and language solutions. Our language capabilities driven by constant innovations ensured KeyPoints technology was a sought-after resource.

 

Young Entrepreneur Par Excellence!

Sunil Prasad Motaparti, a young restless technology entrepreneur with an acute sense on the course of futuristic technologies, not only co-founded KeyPoint Technologies and various other tech-powered product companies but also became an investor with Bitkemy ventures which helped many founders convert their dreams into reality.

 

Our inspirational leader Sunil Prasad Motaparti left for his heavenly abode on the 3rd of January 2019. His good wishes and visionary roadmap will guide us to achieve more and establish KeyPoint Technologies as the leader in language domain.

 

Excerpts from the top management at KeyPoint Technologies:

Nutan ChokkaReddy

CEO

KeyPoint Technologies


Over the last few days, all of us have been suffering through the grief thrust upon us. In this moment of sadness, I’m not able to find the words to fully express Sunil’s greatness. However, having been one of the fortunate few who had the chance to work with him closely, sharing my experiences with you so that we can understand his vision and carry it forward together.

 

Sunil always had a special place in his heart for KeyPoint and its employees. He always used to say that he took pride in the quality of the products that KeyPoint delivered and wanted the team to always continue delivering high quality products. Today, if we are being respected and competing against the best in the world it’s only because of the foundation that Sunil had laid. Not only the technology, but he also built a great culture within the organization and whenever there were tough situations he used to step in and take care of it, for the team.

 

Sunil always had a ‘Never Say No’ attitude and loved to work with people with similar attitude. One instance that I can recollect is when we came up with a few changes to an existing algorithm and found around 4% improvement in the prediction quality. We were all happy and felt that we had stretched the limits of what could be achieved. Suddenly, one of the team members asked, can we stretch it by another 6% and be in a position where others would envy us. Getting that level of improvement was unheard of in the domain. As we were trying to explain the challenges involved to the team member, Sunil said ‘Why Not? If you think that is what will make us the best, then let’s pursue it’. Here is a person who just doesn’t talk but will also walk the talk. So, as soon as he said it, we all knew he will be stretching himself more than any member in the team to achieve the goal.

 

He was the pioneer of lot of innovations in the field of computational linguistics and never shied away from taking up new challenges. He always talked about the importance of building the intelligence ‘on the device’ and how it can change the world. He valued user privacy and felt that we need to respect the users of our products. Today, when big companies are not caring one bit about selling user’s data and making revenues, he always stood tall and said that it is not something we want to get into and didn’t want the team to take shortcuts for making revenue.

Sunil will always be remembered as a highly intelligent, innovative, humble, selfless individual who always lead the team from the front and put the team’s priorities ahead of his personal interests. He always pursued greatness and I am sure he will continue to inspire us to achieve the same.

 

Today, as we question our ability to stand up for his vision and beat the competition, I am sure he is watching us and saying ‘Why Not’!

It’s time for us to stand up for him and realize his vision.

 

Manish Chapla

Senior Vice President Delivery | Localization

KeyPoint Technologies


Test automation of a smart keyboard was not easy when Adaptxt was first released to the market. Back in those days, we had a small QA team and felt that it would be difficult to manage it ourselves and thought about outsourcing. But Sunil said ‘Hey Manish! It’s better we do it as we know the product and our users better than anyone else’. He not only motivated us but helped us build a team around it and contributed extensively in designing the test automation suite. This is just one example and there were many such instance where Sunil had motivated and guided us through the challenges.

He was unique and our role model!

 

Gopi Srinivas Tedlapu

Head | Finance

KeyPoint Technologies


Few people in life we admire, we love but very few people inspire us to follow their footsteps, Sunil was one among them in the path of my life.

 

Sunil was not only the founder, leader but he was my Mentor from the inception of KeyPoint Technologies in India.  He had nurtured me in such a way that every decision of Company was embraced with integrity, ethics to achieve greater transparency of governance in the company to achieve new heights.

 

Sunil always had the ideology to grow with a difference in today’s competitive world.  We in the present day and age look at companies as a source of earning profits at any cost, but this man, Sunil had a vision to enable a common man with cutting-edge technology.  His vision is partly fulfilled today through his brain child – Xploree” to serve the purpose of the same.

 

I was fortunate enough among the many people in the entire Prasad Aditya group of Companies to work with such a visionary leader who was not only a technology entrepreneur but a true human being with most humble and straight forward nature.

 

“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.”

— Sheryl Sanberg, COO of Facebook

Consumers Will Always Remain Kings and Queens!

The New Year is going to ring in a few hours! Wishing this New Year, equips consumers with their rightful rights that ensures they get true value for their money and are entitled to a transparent, honest process.

 

The recent attempt by the Government of India to empower customers through a revised, Consumer Protection Bill 2018, comes as a boon for consumers in India.

We have often heard people say that consumer is the king! While it stands true in respect to the developed world where a consumer can drag a product manufacturer or a service provider to court in case of deficiency in the promised product or service. Its not the same in India. In India it’s not just the common man who suffers because of inferior products or services delivered whilst he/she was promised something else, even movie stars are meted with the same fate. Not long ago Sonakshi Sinha a popular movie star ordered for headphones and received junk in return.

The rapidly evolving digital landscape in India where more and more people are now using the online medium to purchase, sell and make online payments having effective legislation to address consumer grievances is essential.

 

Brief History of the Consumers Protection Bill

Introduced in 1986 as the Consumers Rights Act was first considered for a rehaul in 2015. The revised bill was referred to a standing committee which suggested many changes to the bill. The bill was then withdrawn and replaced with the Consumer Protection Bill 2018 in January 2018. The bill has been passed by the Lok Sabha and awaits its fate at the Rajya Sabha.

 

What does the consumer gain from this bill?

  • The new bill now encompasses all transactions between a consumer and a retailer, manufacturer, supplier etc. irrespective of medium which can be offline or online.
  • The consumer can now file a complaint if he/she suffers an injury, property damage, death due to the malfunctioning of a product and claim adequate compensation provisioned under product liability.
  • Consumers can also raise their concerns if they feel that they have been wrongfully implicated through a contract. Unfair contracts advising consumers to pay excessive security deposits, unilateral termination without cause are instances where the contract can be deemed null and void, in favor of the consumer.
  • The bill plans to introduce Consumer Protection Councils that will be easily accessible to aggrieved consumers and work as the first point of contact for consumer protection and grievance redressal while promoting consumer rights. The bill also initiates setting up of a regulatory body called the Consumer Protection Authority. The authority will govern and pass orders to curb and restrict unfair trade practices such as selling below standard products and services and can impose penalties for false and misleading advertisements.
  • The bill also promises the creation of consumer courts at the district, state and national levels to hear and adjudicate concerns and grievances of consumers.
  • The bill also authorizes the CPC to levy penalties on misleading advertisements and/or supplying of inferior, adulterated or spurious goods. Penalties of 10 to 50 lakhs can be levied alongside jail terms for the manufacturer. The endorser in such cases can be barred from endorsing any product for a period of one year and can be given a longer term if he/she is a repeat offender.
  • Consumers will now have the freedom to file their complaints from the location of their residence or work. Earlier consumers could only file cases in the jurisdiction of the manufacturer or seller. The jurisdictional value of district consumer courts has also been revised from 20 Lakhs to a sum of 1 crore.

 

Read the Bill in Detail.

 

While the aforesaid legislation looks to strongly favor the consumers, there are doubts about the independence of the councils and authority as the important decisions of appointing judges and members for the council, authority and courts is heavily dependent on executive action.

At Xploree we surely believe that consumers truly are the kings. Thus, our efforts are concentrated at providing the consumers of our products an engaging, non-intrusive and transparent process. It is our commitment towards our consumers or users that ensures we safeguard our consumers privacy by adhering to strict policies. Download app here.
