Oyokey's mission is to flatten the Internet’s information architecture and make emerging engagement platforms more useful and intuitive
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Oyokey Inc., a pioneer in cloud-based addressing and recognition technology, today announced that it has raised a total of $1.01 million to close their Seed financing round from Dallas based investors.
The foundation of the Company’s addressing system is the coupling of a keyword and domain name into what is called a Keyword Identifier Tag (kiTAGS™). When a kiTAG is created within Oyokey’s Keyword Registry, the patent pending system, directs the domain owner to select an Action Code for the kiTAG. Example – Action Codes can be phone number dial (call#anywebsite.com), webpages (newmovies#anywebsite.com), locations (dallas#anywebsite.com)
Oyokey’s innovative new form factor gives the user direct and accurate access to an unlimited amount of information and functionality. The Oyokey technology allows the user to navigate the entire Internet through all current devices and emerging engagement platforms such as cars, wearables, and TVs by simply speaking the kiTAGS in voice engines. With a string of keywords tagged to a URL, there is no limit to the information that can be directly accessed or actions that can be triggered.
“One of the applications of our addressing systems is the reinvention of the phone numbering system. In the future, no one should have to type or remember phone number digits to connect with others when using smart phones and emerging devices. Speaking natural language based kiTAGS into your device will automatically activates direct phone calls.” says Nitin Anand, Oyokey Founder and CEO.
Oyokey raised this seed round to continue the development of its’ new Voice Internet addressing, support major scaling of their Keyword Registry and fund continued relationship development with the leading Mobile Carriers and Equipment providers.
“Oyokey has invented a powerful new addressing and recognition system for the Internet” says Kirk Klinkhammer, the Company’s Chief Marketing Officer, “The Company’s mission is to flatten the Internet’s information architecture and make emerging engagement platforms more useful and intuitive.”
“Billions of smart phones and emerging devices such as wearables, connected cars, connected TVs and homes allow users’ access to the Internet. We wanted to build core internet infrastructure technologies that work for these devices so they don’t rely on the limitations of traditional browser-search model.” says Anand, “Oyokey has shown that kiTAGS can be a great addition to the addressing and engagement landscape by providing a first of its kind system that works with voice, type scan or search – all modalities.”
Headquartered in Irving, Texas, Oyokey Inc. (stands for Own Your Own Keywords) is a privately-held company specializing in cloud-based addressing and recognition technology platforms. The company is headed by Nitin Anand, the inventor and visionary behind the kiTAGS™ Technology Platform and other Oyokey's patent pending technologies.
