Description

Description: 

A french software company with ten years experience in IoT provides end-to-end solutions for IoT projects and manages technical complexity by covering the entire value chain : from capturing data, to storage, and data analysis through innovative algorithms. Its solutions has applications in smart city, transportation, industry, energy, security and health markets.

The company provides two Internet of Things platforms available in SaaS mode or On Premise:
- a devices %26 connectivity management platform, to handle heterogeneous connected devices and connectivity.
- a data visualization platform to create customizable online dashboards

The two platforms are open and interoperable.

The company offers all the skills and tools necessary to help companies implement their Internet of Things projects :
- a support team speaking French and English to answer all technical questions and ease the deployment.
- a large development team to create solution fitted to needs (platform, app…).
- a customer success manager to ensure the follow up and gather new customer needs.
- a sales team with an expertise in IoT to advise customers on the best devices and connectivity means.

The company has a deep knowledge in Internet of Things project management, from the choice of the connected devices, the connectivity set up and the data management.

A typical project include advices on sensors to deploy, handling of the implementation of adapted connectivity and managing the whole from the company's platforms.

The company is interested in technical cooperation agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance.

The company is seeking technnical cooperation agreements with partners who propose a technology that can be integrated into its platforms to advance and enrich them.
