Earlier this week, the entertainment giant mobile OnMobile located in Bangalore India announced the opening of a new office in Montreal dedicated to the games on mobile devices as well as an investment of a million dollars in the young company Technologies rob0, that is also based in the metropolis.

With its technology ready-to-use, software as a service Technologies rob0 innovates by showing precisely when and why players cease to play. The data obtained and managed by artificial intelligence (AI) allow to optimize the games, reduce the risk of market, and save time and money for game developers.

“As the president and chief executive officer of an indian company, I am very enthusiastic about the idea of repatriating a portion of our operations in Montreal,” says François-Charles Sirois.
