The IoT – or internet of things. It sounds futuristic, but it’s already here. From the energy industry to the aerospace industry, to first responders, and even your own home, we have data and sensors all around us. But how do you make sense of all the data that is around? 

SensorUp Inc. is a cutting-edge solutions company that takes all of this data and helps make sense of it for companies.  Using its Cloud-Based platform, or ‘digital nervous system’, they deliver situational awareness through predictions, solutions, and the ability to trigger actions to respond to the real-time data. Unprecedented visibility from multiple sensors. 

They compile all this data from multiple sources, organize it, and simplify it to empower clients to trigger meaningful actions through real-time visibility.  As a result, companies operate more efficiently, save money, and positively impact the environment through swifter incident response times.
