The French video game developer- Voodoo is a global market leader in hyper-casual gaming and has over 150+ massively popular titles garnering over 5.2 billion downloads worldwide till date. As a part of the collaboration, WinZO will assist the global giant with its distribution and lend its technological expertise for the vernacular Indian market. With this partnership, Voodoo will be able to leverage WinZO’s 65 million+ premium quality users. 55% of WinZO’s users who prefer pay-to-play formats spend over 60 Minutes on the platform daily.

Association with WinZO, which hosts 80+ games in 12+ languages and has 80% users consuming the app in non-English language, will further empower the Voodoo titles to be more culturally relevant for the Tier II-V audience of Bharat, garnering deeper penetration and better engagements from the region compared to their alternate distribution sources.

The collaboration is focused on upgrading games for optimal performance with low end smartphones and fluctuating internet connectivity – a problem predominant to the Indian market. The upgrade aims to provide premium quality gaming experience for the users in Tier II-V cities where infrastructural challenges are prevalent.

Apart from distribution and technological collaborations, WinZO has 50,000 registered vernacular micro influencers who support creation of localized social media content around the titles, which could enable 1 billion + impressions, as projected. Over 300+ game developers who have integrated their games on WinZO have benefitted from WinZO’s unique and innovative integration methodology will promise a 100X revenue when compared to alternative revenue sources, such as in-app purchases and advertisements.

Commenting on the new association, Saumya Singh Rathore, the co-founder of WinZO said, “This collaboration between WinZO and Voodoo is a very organic one with both the organizations being the leaders in the Indian and global casual gaming ecosystems respectively. This is not only a testament to WinZO’s deep technical expertise, presence and understanding of the Indian market, but also its global standard of operations. We are confident that this collaboration with Voodoo will bring multiple titles for our users together and prove to be mutually beneficial. We, at WinZO are committed to ensuring the success of all developer partners.”

Towards its efforts of developing the gaming development, WinZO recently had announced $20 Million game developer fund III with the idea to wholistically boost the global game development ecosystem including game development, economies around gaming, content creation, live-ops, and security through Capital investment, infrastructural support and monetization support.

For Voodoo, India accounts for 10% of their downloads of which only 0.5% contributes to their revenues. It is this vast revenue potential from the market that remains to be capitalized due to low Average Revenue per user (ARPU) from the region. WinZO predicts, Voodoo can benefit from this partnership given the access which they get to the 55% premium paying user base of WinZO. The innovative micro-transaction-based model may prove to be a game changer for international titles trying to make a mark in the Indian market.

Cygnature is an award-winning signing solution that securely authenticates signers, offers them a range of signature types for signing and protects the integrity of the documents.

With the e-stamp feature, businesses will be able to procure e-stamps through Cygnature platform and significantly ease the process of stamping documents.

COVID-19 has been a catalyst in pushing industries to move towards a paperless economy by offering a faster way of executing documents. Cygnet Infotech’s Cygnature supports organizations when it comes to digitally transforming their businesses. Cygnet Infotech’s Cygnature has added a useful feature ‘E-Stamp’ in its latest release providing multiple benefits. E-stamp can be generated within minutes using this feature. It can help you save time as physical stamp paper procurement is a time-consuming process. Users can prepay the stamp duty amount and then issue stamp papers against that balance.

With Cygnature, the solution can help digitize the process of paying the stamp duty and procuring e-stamp challan online rather than going to a stamp paper vendor to procure traditional stamp paper:

1. Initiate a workflow by uploading an agreement on Cygnature

2. Add E-stamp, select state and stamp duty amount to be paid for the relevant document category

3. Provide details of first and second party

4. On confirmation of details, the e-stamp challan will be generated and gets added instantly to the uploaded agreement

5. Both the parties can then continue to sign the document using Cygnature by adding placeholders to e-sign the document

6. The stamp duty amount will be deducted from the prepaid amount you deposit in your Cygnature account

7. The physical copies of the stamp paper will be couriered at the end of the month to the consumer’s address

Cygnature will not provide advice on the amount of stamp duty to be paid. This will have to be decided by the user.

Niraj Hutheesing, Founder & Managing Director at Cygnet Infotech said, “Cygnet Infotech’s product, Cygnature has been developed with an aim to promote seamless digital signing of documents. With the introduction of Cygnature’s E-stamp feature, we seek to further support businesses in speeding up the process of authorization of documents. Paying stamp duty is mandatory for many transactions across the country, and to simplify the process, e-stamp will help tackle counterfeiting and will further make the payment of stamp duty easier and glitch free.”

In this latest release, Cygnature’s E-stamp feature will be available for 5 states – Delhi, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
