This acquisition comes in sync with Gozoop’s strategy of transforming into a digital service and products company. Commenting on the development, Rohan Bhansali, co-founder of Gozoop says, “We are very excited in welcoming the team of iThink InfoTech to become a part of Gozoop. Technology and products have been our key focus and iThink’s delivery capabilities will help us move faster towards our vision.”
