Many of our customers fill important functions and roles in society. This gives us the opportunity to contribute to make a difference through our assignments and deliveries. Some examples:
Cash money laundering remains widespread, as bank notes have the ‘advantage’ of not leaving any digital trace. We have worked with the cash management company Loomis to develop a solution that automatically generates alerts in the event of unusual activity, e.g. if there is a change in the amount of cash that Loomis collects from a customer.
Many serious disease outbreaks such as plague, diarrheal diseases and malaria are not detected early enough to prevent them from spreading. Itera is working with the Red Cross to develop a platform that will enable large quantities of data to be gathered continuously from aid workers across the world. The platform will make it possible to detect outbreaks at an early stage and so to save lives.
Around 1 million Norwegians are allergic to pollen to some extent. Accurate pollen count warnings can make everyday life easier during pollen season. Together with the Norwegian Allergy and Asthma Association, Itera is looking at how machine learning and artificial intelligence could be used to analyse current and historic pollen data to provide as accurate and long-range pollen count warnings as possible.
Millions of people worldwide experience reduced mobility and quality of life as a result of accidents or various diseases. Many benefit from products such as braces or prosthetics. Together with Össur, a world leader in orthopedic products, Itera develops the SmartMeasureTM app to support the specialist's dialogue with the patient. iPhone's gyroscopic sensor technology is used to make accurate measurements to ensure that the patient gets an individually tailored product. SmartMeasure lets the specialist place the order efficientlya, and more time can be spent on the patient and less time filling out forms.
