Scripting many such success stories, Very sprints to continue delivering ingenious IoT solutions to companies in the manufacturing industry that face trouble accessing and using data on machines. “We help companies retrofit equipment both out in the field and within the manufacturing operation with IoT sensors and capabilities so that they can get access to their data through an ETL pipeline, store it in a cloud environment, and then do the analysis for predictive + preventative maintenance,” said Benjamin Wald, Co-Founder and Head of Client Strategy at Very.
As much as Very excels in software design and development for IoT projects, the company equally excels in hardware design and prototyping, using digital twin technology to do hardware simulation, which in turn, is used to test products in various environments. Very also deals in device management and places great emphasis on security by ensuring well-structured product development and implementation. The company specializes in machine learning and data science to augment their IoT-centric solutions.
Apart from their focus on industrial IoT in the manufacturing sector, Very also develops consumer IoT, mobile applications, and general software products.
We’re very strategic in approaching the processes and defining business and engineering requirements to stay on track, on time, and on budget
What differentiates Very from its competitors is its way of operation that ensures transparency, updating customers at each level of development with all relevant details. To develop a phased product roadmap, Very creates a minimum viable product and then continues to iterate throughout the development process to improve the product. Very understands their clients’ requirements and makes sure to mitigate risks associated with projects and to understand their costs and complexity. “We’re very strategic in approaching the processes and defining business and engineering requirements to stay on track, on time, and onbudget,” says Wald.
Since its inception in 2011 as Spartan Systems, Very has taken an extended journey from developing products for HP, Mozilla, Accenture, and Texas Instruments to launching more than 250 products, and becoming an IoT-specific company. With a 100 percent distributed team of seasoned engineers from all over the United States and Latin America, Very plans to grow its team and resources in the near future. Knowing that the market for IoT in manufacturing is expecting an increase to $40 Billion by 2020, Very continues to expand into the manufacturing space. Being one of the few companies whose major focus was not on funding but on growing sustainably, Very has achieved all of its success without being funded by venture capital.
