Our mission is to help revolutionise the FM industry with the proliferation of IOT-based products; enabling FM’s and Property Owners to offer better, cheaper and innovative new services to their clients.

Ultimately, we want to raise the profile of IOT solutions, and for IOT to become a de facto tool that the FM industry looks to acquire and integrate in their business, in the same way that CAFM and BMS are today.
