The Silicon Review
Businesses today need to make their operations more efficient, more visible, and ready for the future. At the end of the day, they need to improve their bottom line, reducing costs, minimizing downtime, and boosting performance. Houston-based Timbergrove builds relationships with its clients based on a feverish passion for figuring out how to make things work best and making sure projects work right every time, no matter what comes up during or after development.
Founded in 2006 by the serial entrepreneur Ian Uriarte, Timbergrove has got some great insights on custom product development, industrial IoT, and asset management.
Custom Software and Product Development
If you as a business are looking to improve asset and performance visibility, collect smarter data, make processes more efficient, and ultimately reduce costs. Timbergrove can be a great partner for you. The one-size-fits-all software solution isn’t going to do all that you need. Timbergrove prides itself on creating custom, user-centered software that leverages design thinking and user experience, always with the goal of solving businesses’ complex business needs.
Why choose Timbergrove? Maybe your product development team isn’t scalable or lacks the technical know-how to efficiently develop the quality product you need. Maybe you haven’t had luck outsourcing. Maybe you just need a more agile team that can reduce time-to-market, deliver on budget, and pivot with you when needed. Timbergrove can help with all of these.
Solving IIoT Problems
Decisions shouldn’t have to be made in the dark without the insights that only the right tools can provide. You want the peace of mind that you have the kind of intelligent, actionable data that will lead to smart choices and future success. One of the best ways to have this kind of confidence is to be able to accurately track the business assets in real-time. This allows a business to gather the kind of productivity information and performance insights that directly leads to improved efficiency and safety and less downtime.
Timbergrove can make it possible for businesses to monitor processes and track assets, whether they are in their hands or out in the field with Moonshot. The company created this product offering to take the best of the IBM Watson IoT platform and open source technologies in order to create an out-of-the-box, enterprise-grade solution that is flexible enough to be tailored to your specific needs.
Timbergrove’s Moonshot IoT solution is able to track assets in areas underserved by traditional communications. It works perfectly for cases where the number and type of devices to be connected make individual connections cost-prohibitive. This ready-to-use platform enables users to track and manage physical assets with minimal integration time and rapid deployment to the market.
“We have worked with Timbergrove in the past year creating a revolutionary product, and we are excited about our partnership. They have delivered value every step of the way, and their vision on the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, and cloud-based e-commerce is allowing us to jump ahead with confidence,” said Paul Abrahams, COO of Lightstriker.
