Meet Jiny

With our cutting edge, intelligent, almost human-like hand holding solution, Jiny enables a first of its kind hyper contextual, vernacular, live on-screen assistance for users. Technology that lets anyone navigate and complete complex digital tasks successfully on their very first attempt.

We’re pioneering the Assistive User Interface (AUI) platform, where we’re building a future where apps are able to tell the user exactly what they’re looking at, and what they should do every step of the way. Where everyone, irrespective of their expertise, are able to use any app to do things they aspire to. Maids, cooks, guards, the elderly, recent adopters etc. can successfully complete a transaction on their first attempt.

This is the world of Assistive UIs. This is the future.
