PIKA Technologies Inc. has received a contribution from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) to support the company’s development of a telephony board that functions as a small computer. PIKA says that it will be more compact and cost-effective, benefiting small businesses with limited space. The company will also develop wireless integration for this appliance.

“Our government is investing in science and technology to create jobs,
strengthen the economy and improve Canadians’ quality of life,” said
Royal Galipeau, member of parliament for Ottawa-Orleans. “Canada’s
Economic Action Plan provides close to $5 billion toward science and
technology initiatives. This represents one of the single-largest
federal budget investments in S&T to date[.]”

PIKA Technologies’ solutions support a wide-range of telephony-related
products such as call recording, fax servers, interactive voice
response systems, voice mail and teleconferencing applications.
