Imagine you are building a house like many tech startups make their products. How do you think they would do it?
After finding the existing housing stock underwhelming, they might decide they can do it better. Doing it better in the tech world means starting from scratch, so a young tech startup might find a new shiny ax and head off to the forest. Meanwhile, the startup has to deliver that lighting feature they promised investors, so they find an overseas contractor that makes spiffy lights to make some to their specifications.
Still, the company's team is currently busy trying to find a mill to turn a tree into lumber to install proper walls and a ceiling from which to hang the lights.
Eventually, they do a quick "temporary" scaffold that will serve as walls and a ceiling. Years later, future engineers will be delicately working around the still-present scaffold, afraid to make any changes lest they bring the whole house down.
People who build houses the right way start by hiring a general contractor that has built homes before. Good general contractors have years of experience and relationships related to grading, foundations, plumbing, lumber, roofing, and so on. They don't waste time with the basics, and they plan. That way, the whole process comes together to exceed expectations.
That's us. We're sort of like the general contractor of IoT engineering. Unlike a general contractor, we do the actual development work. Like a general contractor, we have years of experience and relationships related to hardware, communications modules, mobile apps, backend systems, and data science. We think through your project and help you foresee otherwise hidden problems lurking up ahead.
We've done this before, and we'll save you time and money by doing it right.
