Internet of Things (IoT)

Harness the power of real-world data for your business

More and more, the entire physical world is becoming a vast information system. The Internet of Things (IoT) is your opportunity to leverage that data to drive growth and value for your business.

Metal Toad develops IoT systems that tap into the power of real-world data. Sensors embedded in physical objects gather crucial data and send it to the cloud, where it can be processed, analyzed, and transmitted to you—in the form of insights you can use to reduce costs and increase revenue.

  • Reduce costs by automating monitoring of your systems

  • Reallocate employee time to higher-value activities through automated process monitoring

  • Reduce capital investment expenses with better asset and fleet management

  • Improve uptime and reliability with predictive maintenance

  • Unlock crucial information with passive intelligence collection

  • Make better-informed decisions with key business intelligence

 

Connecting the real world to the cloud

Tech-agnostic: Metal Toad’s deep tech expertise starts in being technology-agnostic. We work with leading-edge systems like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Things, and more—the right system to solve your business needs. This agnostic approach extends to connections: from peer-to-peer device connections to bluetooth, 3G, wireless, and beyond—our infrastructure expertise encompasses the entire technological landscape.

Scalable: We create systems that are enormously elastic—so you can scale from proof-of-concept to production-size data streams seamlessly. There’s no limit to the amount of data you can glean from your sensors.

Secure: We build with security top of mind from the get-go. You can rest assured that your IoT data is encrypted end to end, rooted in a system that minimizes risks and keeps your infrastructure safe. From the code itself to our workplace protocols, Metal Toad takes a holistic approach to security that ensures our clients’ data is safe—even when dealing with highly sensitive information.

 

Data you can actually use

Of course, IoT data is only beneficial if you can put it to good use. That’s where our expertise in data analytics, data visualization, and UX design come in. We build a system that lets you see and use your data in meaningful ways to make decisions that help your business thrive. And with smart reporting tools, you have access to insights on the fly, without allocating employee resources to manual reporting.

Great UX goes both ways—in addition to an interface that displays your data insights, we can build the apps you need to control your IoT devices in the real world.
