Kochi: In an innovative use of technology sweetening your life, a Kochi based start-up, AmidRay Technologies, has launched a smartphone application for payasam lovers in Kochi. The Android application will help smartphone users to order payasam, Kerala’s mouth watering delicacy, for a home delivery. Limited orders for payasam for August 28, 29 or 30 will be accepted till 10 pm on August 27, 2012.
In a release, Pratheeksha A K, CEO, AmidRay Technologies said, “m-Payasam, the Payasam on Mobile is an application which can easily be downloaded on an android phone to order the cuisine direct to home. Once the application is installed, all one has to do is to order the delicacy and it will be delivered at your place, absolutely without any hassle. Housewives can order payasam through this application, pay on delivery and have a relaxed Onam”. Order delivery is restricted to Kochi city this time and will be expanded later with the next version release.
AmidRay Technologies, which was incubated at Technopark TBI and StartUp Village, has devised this innovative mobile technology to ensure that the coming Onam is ‘smarter’ and ‘smoother’ with m-Payasam. The company has not forged any tie-ups with caterers for the payasam delivery. “It will be entirely our enterprise. We will provide it ourselves. Initially, there will be two varieties of payasam. Once a customer places his order, he would be told about the price, and the delicacy would be home-delivered”, adds Pratheeksha.
According to Rohit R K, COO, AmidRay Technologies, the team plans to launch the next version of the product soon which will help a smartphone user order food from hotels, book tables at restaurants as also book room at hotels and tickets at cinemas. Those going for a movie can place order for snacks or soft drinks while booking tickets and the same will be delivered during the interval of a film at your seat itself. They also plan to expand the operations of the application to enable people order cakes and birthday gifts.
