The U-Safe app that enables alerts to be sent to the police ensuresthe safety of women as part of the company’s commitment to society.

The Developer Conference is designed to invest in the technology ideas of the employees and also invest in them. The event will also feature speakers from all over the world.

In a bid to build a pool of technology intelligence and tapping into Kerala’s young talent, the firm has joined hands with APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) in the state for its internship programme “Bridging the Digital Divide.” In 2018, UST Global also plans to expand its innovation centre Infinity Labs to other countries and cities they operate in.
