Pledge – Industrial IoT

Industry-specific industrial IoT platforms for businesses that enable higher levels of operational efficiencies and agility.

The highly anticipated Industry 4.0 revolution is here. Its reshaping manufacturing processes and the Industrial IoT is leading this transformation.

In many mature markets, there are often two dominant platforms. For example, iOS and Android in mobile, Windows and Mac OS in OS, and PlayStation and Xbox in gaming. However, not in the case of IoT, at least not yet. However, A pure-play platform alone won’t solve a business problem. The platform’s value proposition is harder to explain to business leaders. This translates into a higher cost of sales.

The problem is that Industrial IoT doesn’t scale horizontally. Nor can a platform provider compete at every layer. We experienced this problem while working for companies such as Bloomberg, Dominos, Barclaycard, KPMG and AMP. The pain drove us to solve this problem by combining our 20 years of experience. We launched XIGES in 2017 with a mission to build industry-specific IoT platforms. The platforms enable higher levels of operational efficiencies and agility. We bootstrapped and self-funded the first version of our IIoT platform. Working with our first customer, we were able to fine-tune the platform and make it market ready. We currently service the apparel industry and the digital out-of-home advertising industry. We’re looking to raise our seed funding round to execute our go-to-market plan and scale.
