On November 10-11, 2016 the hotel “Hotels and Preference Hualing” hosted the annual conference GITI organized by the Ministry of Justice “Data Exchange Agency” and “ICT Business Council”. The forum has already gained international recognition in the field of information and communication. This year over 500 representatives from more than 20 countries have attended the conference.
Among the key speakers of the conference 4 students from Free University garnered the most attention. Startup, CNICK revolves around the idea of a smart ring and has won a competition organized by the “Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency”. To further develop the product, they have received 100 000 lari grant.
The company is closely cooperating with the Ministry of Health at this moment. The goal is to simplify the use of electronic receipts. With a simple click on a pharmacist’s screen, the user will be able to show the list of medications prescribed by the doctor. This will surely save time and reduce the chance of mistakes.
The first prototype of the product is already ready, the final version will allow the owner to keep his primary medical information (blood group, undergone diseases, allergies). This function is especially important because it can actually save a person’s life.
CNICK can also function as fitness club’s cards and organization’s permit and loyalty cards, essentially replacing the user’s wallet. The owner can also attach a ticket to the ring, enter cinema or concerts and share information with just a simple touch on the smartphone. The product will be available to everyone in 2017.
