Through their location-based data, QI also gives marketers the kind of attribution analytics they need to measure the true impact of their campaign on their target consumer segments. It builds upon its fundamental technologies such as TRIP (Traffic Information Platform) as well as products in telematics and navigation to offer data analytics and insights collected over the years. The data highlights price, location and transience scores for a location along with peak times.

Saurav Bhattacharyya, CEO of Quantum Inventions, said that this release would make it possible for advertisers to understand audiences at a much deeper level.

"I feel this has immense potential," Saurav said. "At QI, we constantly aspire to transform what we have built into something that is applicable and beneficial to a larger population. Mobile advertising is substantially driven by location and that is our competency and business. Adding our insights and data accuracy to the advertising value proposition will help paint a more accurate picture of the consumer."

The release will provide a level-playing field to smaller firms as they can like their larger counterparts, apply the insights to effectively target audience segments, without having to shell-out a fair share of their marketing budget into such research. Currently available as a pdf report, the data will be available in machine readable form upon request.

Quantum Inventions Launches First Fully-integrated Connected GPS Navigation for iOS with Galactio-SG

Singapore, 27th November, 2015

Singapore’s home-grown pioneer in real-time traffic and connected navigation, Quantum Inventions, has brought its award-winning navigation experience to iOS by launching Galactio SG GPS Navigation and Traffic. Available on the Google Play store since February 2014, the android version of Galactio has been well received by users, garnering an average rating of 4.0.

Galactio, the first of its kind app, fully integrates real-time information such as traffic incidents, traffic camera images, parking rates and availability and fuel prices. To provide further convenience, the app also allows offline navigation. "Galactio empowers drivers with a hyper-local experience by integrating innovative features in a simple, convenient and customizable system," said Mohit Sindhwani, Head of Innovation at Quantum Inventions.

Mohit further added, "We noticed that drivers juggled with multiple applications for their commuting needs. Hence, we included Driver Assistance features such as speed limit advice, bus lane notifications, ERP toll calculation and red light and speed camera warnings to offer a seamless, one-stop solution to users. For example, drivers are alerted about traffic incidents affecting their route and offered detour advisory. In addition, the built in parking availability feature automatically guides the users to carparks as they near the destination. Galactio has been designed to improve driver productivity and improve user experience."

Integrated with QI’s mapSYNQ portal, the app also includes personalization features that allow users to share their current location, drive information, real-time position and estimated time of arrival with their friends via a wide array of social media channels as well as other traditional media such as SMS and email.

Commenting on the launch of the app, Saurav Bhattacharyya, CEO of Quantum Inventions remarked, "Extending the reach of Galactio to both Android and iOS is a significant milestone in our journey towards creating intelligent transportation systems. Galactio is the actualization of our vision to enhance user experience and enable platforms that help to create smart cities."

The Android app is also available in other countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia, and would be followed with the iOS version in the coming months. Galactio SG is available on Apple’s app store and Google Play and can be accessed at the following links:

mapSYNQ launches for the web, iOS and Android – Maps, Live Traffic, Personalized!

Singapore, 7th February, 2013

Quantum Inventions, a key provider of GPS navigation and traffic solutions in Asia Pacific, announced the launch of mapSYNQ, a map-based, traffic information service that provides real-time traffic data for the region. Available on the web and mobile, mapSYNQ is the first of its kind application that combines live traffic with personalized user information to offer motorists a seamless, one-stop application that addresses all their commuting needs.

"One of the key differences in mapSYNQ is the manner in which the information is accessed by users," said Mohit Sindhwani, Head of Innovation at Quantum Inventions. "mapSYNQ offers traffic information to users in a personalized and contextual manner. For example, instead of providing all traffic incidents, toll prices or cameras in a list and leaving the user to deduce which ones might affect him, mapSYNQ actually figures out the ones that would affect the user based on his current location and his destinations saved in his profile or calendar. The entire experience becomes personalized, hassle-free and simple to use."

Although mapSYNQ was developed in Singapore, it was built with a global audience in mind. Motorists from countries in the region such as Malaysia and Thailand can leverage upon mapSYNQ and expect a similar set of features as traffic information from these countries has been included. Mohit further commented "The mapSYNQ platform is ready for a global push. We are in discussions with data providers and partners to supply country specific data to enrich mapSYNQ and offer our users a truly global application."

mapSYNQ is also positioned as a companion product to Quantum Invention’s existing navigation software, Galactio. Saurav Bhattacharyya, CEO of Quantum Inventions said "Over the years, users of our GPS navigation products have responded positively towards the inclusion of live traffic information within their devices. However, they felt that providing this information to them beforehand would go a long way towards helping them plan their journeys. This reinforced our vision for a connected navigation system and provided us with the starting point for mapSYNQ"

Saurav went on to say "At Quantum Inventions, we recognize the current trend that users are engaging with an increasing number of devices such as tablets and smartphones. These users expect to access their applications across all the different devices and they demand a similar experience throughout. Navigation, maps and routing applications are no exception to this trend and this is the approach we have taken with mapSYNQ."

mapSYNQ is now available in Google Play and Apple’s app store. mapSYNQ on the web can be accessed at www.mapsynq.com.
