AS part of its aim to improve business and government agency efficiencies through the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), a research and development institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DoST), has signed a three-year partnership with Bizooku Philippines on Aug, 27, 2021.

"We are very excited to be part of this initiative, as we believe that the technology CloudLink brings to the table will be of significant service to many government agencies. This joint effort will also demonstrate the importance of industry-government collaborations in developing better solutions for the society," shared DoST-ASTI Director Franz de Leon.

The implementation of various ICT Solutions of Bizooku, starting with CloudLink, a machine vision and machine learning technology, is capable of analyzing official receipts and documents like articles of incorporation, income tax returns and other various documents.

The technology is currently being used by multinational brands, where establishments nationwide issue an official receipt and customers that have opted-in can upload those receipts in the system for loyalty and redemption transactions.

"This partnership sets the stage for more ICT solution offerings that Bizooku and DoST-ASTI can provide to our country, in our joint effort to help strengthen the technological capabilities of our government agencies," said Alejandro James Chiongbian, president of Bizooku Philippines.
