was founded February 2017. Before starting, we saw hundreds of IOT start-ups with great ideas, but no funding. We have also seen many companies with IOT POCs (Proofs of Concept) that they could not bring to market profitably. These companies all shared a common need: They needed ways to bring their IoT ideas to market profitably.
Our company is dedicated to helping start-ups and larger companies build industrialized sensor solutions
For us, Industrialized = Low cost and reliable solutions.
We are particularly good at creating low-cost POCs, and we offer low-cost sensor production. Our low price can often be the difference between a viable and a non-viable business.
We focus on the “non-sexy” implementation part of the IOT business, so you can focus on your business:
- We start design in Belgium with world-class experts
- We industrialize design and costs using our unique Flex IOT sensor platform
- We keep costs low by doing testing and firmware design with experienced designers in Pakistan
We already have 14 partnerships and are working with 10 start-ups. The reason for our quick success is simple. We are solving a critically important issue for companies. They have great ideas, and they need to bring them to market. We supply this expertise as business partners.
Smartends was founded by a complimentary team of IoT experts. Noman Ahmed and Imdad Laskar created the business when they saw a clear, unfilled need for better execution in the IOT market. Both have years of experience manufacturing electronic devices and managing software teams. They were quickly joined by Bryan Cassady, who brings expertise gained from building 8 successful companies in 6 different countries. This local team is supported by 10 people in Pakistan with PhDs and Master degrees in Electronic system design and wireless sensor network.
