Founded in August 2010 by Srikanth Ganesan, Tathagata Guha Roy, and Anand Padmanabhan, Littlemore Innovation Labs aims to provide digital and scalable solutions to conduct paperless descriptive exams online.
The company has designed a writable tablet called DigiTaal, and a cloud-based software called PEXA that can be used to conduct end-to-end paperless examinations, which several universities in India have already implemented.
Srikanth, Founder & CTO of Littlemore said,
Having recognised the unique challenges Indian universities face with written examinations, I scoured the world for a suitable device or a solution - and realised there wasn't any. Along with my technology colleagues, we designed and created PEXA + DigiTaal. We have engaged with the Kalpavriksh team for a while now, and what gives us great comfort is that we are aligned on how we want the company to grow, so we have a lot to benefit from this partnership.
PEXA + DigiTaal is an innovative solution for universities which would transcend geography, go beyond examinations to become a broader education tool, while remaining language-agnostic. The core technology competencies built by Littlemore, and the patents that have been applied for, mean that additional applications may be possible in other sectors besides education over a period of time.
We liked Littlemore's strong R&D focus that has combined the power of a custom-built hardware and a cloud-based software to provide a comprehensive, economical and yet an eco-friendly solution. We are delighted to partner with the Littlemore team and guide them in setting up a strong foundation, focus on execution and governance to support growth on a global scale.
