  • Beyond education, the video streaming service can also be used by companies in the transportation, government surveillance and digital entertainment sectors, Wee noted.

    The startup hopes to extend this solution to television broadcasting and mobile devices, and develop a search function so people can find the videos they want through image, text and audio recognition, he added.

  • Travel application Activfy was developed by SocioScale, and it provides users of Apple's iPad device information such as hotel availability and places of interest to visit according to their destination of choice.

  • Besides dispensing travel advice, SocioScale also developed the Concierge analytics platform and embedded it into the app.

    Hotels and restaurants, for example, can use Concierge to analyze guest activity and spending habits based on real-time data collected by the Activfy app, a company spokesperson explained.
