The first implementation of the product was done for Delhi Police, named 'Know Your Police Station', a public portal where citizens can connect with the police. It has already acquired customers in the hospitality, banking sector and also government agencies.

Christin George, CEO of the company, said a team would be moving to the US for the programme. MindHelix Technosol is a startup company formed in December 2010 by an engineer and an engineering student.
