“Farmers will be benefitted from this venture, and there will be more employment opportunities as we are hiring more personnel for this effort,” Kadire Gowda, Managing Director, Hopcoms was quoted in the report as saying. The software is being finalized by Keonics and will be functional in two months, thanks to an initial investment of Rs 1 crore. 

Hopcoms is also planning to extend its computerized billing system, which was introduced last year, to all its outlets in the city. Currently, it is being used in only 80 out of the 272 outlets. 

“We are ready to have more Hopcoms outlets in the city; we have enough financial and personnel strength for it. But the BBMP is not giving us land for the purpose,” Gowda told the Economic Times.
