Software developers at Waterford Institute of Technology’s Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) have teamed up with two colleges in Wales to develop a new mobile app to help at-risk teenagers get work.

The mCommunity app for teaching and learning has been trialed in Pembrokeshire College and Gower College Swansea where nearly 60pc and 40pc of young people using it went on to secure work respectively.

Previously, only about 6pc of those in traditional training at both universities went on to get work.

Altocloud is a software services company that combines machine learning with real-time communications, this SaaS solution intelligently identifies the optimal online visitors and delivers tailored chat, voice, video and content so customers get the information and help they need at exactly the right moment. The company was formed with the help of Enterprise Ireland through the innovation process (Innovation Voucher & Innovation Partner) which allowed them to work with TSSG to build a prototype.  This prototype enabled Altocloud to showcase their vision to prospective customers and investors.  O’Sullivan said “Without the TSSG help it would have been difficult for us to get it done and that really was the first step which allow us to get our first round of Angel Funding being able to show people something new and something different that they would like to invest in”.

In addition, Altocloud worked with TSSG on numerous other new technologies which are going to change the way real time communications works.    By working with TSSG, Altocloud was able to gain expertise when they had limited resources and start quickly with the right architecture that’s scaling with them as they grow.   The combination of research depth and the pragmatic ability to take that research will have an impact on what Altocloud want to do in the market going forward.
