Homegrown information technology (IT) services firm Tech Mahindra on Monday said it will create remote working tools for global enterprise clients, in partnership with communication and collaboration platform provider Huddl.ai.

The two companies, as per a statement, will use artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to enable seamless meeting experience with video conferencing, aided by automatic speech recognition, real-time collaborative notes and calendar recommendation engine.

Tech Mahindra said its domain expertise across multiple industries and verticals will be combined with Glasgow-based Huddl.ai’s enterprise-scale meeting collaboration platform to develop the solutions.

The partnership is expected to allow work teams to align better in terms of efficiency, thus transforming the meeting experience, from planning and taking notes to providing customisable personalised data insights and integration across enterprise applications, the statement said.

“The user-centric architecture essentially captures the core aspects of the meeting, the agenda, action items and moments and added search, which help users to easily understand what happened in a meeting without going over notes to find the key information,” the statement said.

Tech Mahindra share price on the BSE last traded at Rs 872.2, down about 2.5% during Monday’s close. 

“Post Covid, the future of work will be more remote, agile and digitally transformed. However, at the heart of it will be delivering an experience that is not only trying to be closer to the in-person experience, but is also delightful and productive,” Jagdish Mitra, head of strategy and growth at Tech Mahindra, said.

“Together, innovative business solutions and use cases are limited only by our customers’ imagination,” Krishna Yarlagadda, founder and CEO of Huddl.ai, added. 

The partnership with Huddl.ai is a part of Tech Mahindra’s TechMNxT alliance, which focuses on innovations in digital customer experience and internet of things (IoT) across business units.
