“The IoT platform SAM for ThingsUp is over $5.0 billion and use cases within subsegments such as EV mobility and smart devices are expected to grow at over 30% CAGR over the next 5-7 years. Additionally, with offerings around the entire IoT tech platform plus an end-to-end IoT app and the core tech platform being fairly sector agnostic, we believe, ThingsUp has created a local product but with a fairly wide-range and comprehensive global application,” said Abishek Balendran, Investment Partner, Silverneedle Ventures.
According to the business, their software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution is now resolving the issues associated with the diagnostics, monitoring, and cold supply chain monitoring of electric vehicles, as per reported by VCCircle.
