NEW DELHI : Bharti Airtel on Monday said that it has acqui-hired Gurgaon-based start-up Quikmile, which focuses on building tech-enabled logistics platforms for India.

The telecom major said that Quikmile’s team will now be a part of Airtel X Labs (Airtel’s digital innovation lab), which focuses on Internet of Things, Digital Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning.

This includes easy monitoring of fleet minutiae such as engine behaviour, tire conditions and mileage to remove transportation puzzles such as route planning, demand forecasting, analysing vehicular performance, organised achievement of targets.

Quikmile also resolves manpower issues through monitoring of driver behaviour by tracking complex data to basic information such as distance travelled per day, maximum and average speed, harsh braking, etc.
