Smarter Technologies Group is proud to announce that we took home the Business of the Year Award at this year’s Ringwood Business Awards. As a Ringwood headquartered IoT company, the award is indicative of the strides we are taking in the world of innovation for local businesses, into Europe and the world.   

Growing from strength to strength 

The last few years have seen significant growth for Smarter Technologies Group. Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™ became the country’s most established unified LPWAN network. As a result, we have seen an increase in demand for Orion and smart technologies for a range of industries and applications. Our Network is now in use in 32 countries and that is driving the growth of our team members in our Ringwood head office and elsewhere. 

IoT with a difference 

The Orion data network lies at the core of what sets Smarter Technologies Group’s solutions apart. This low-power, long-range, and low-frequency radio solution effectively counteracts many of the challenges encountered using other network solutions. The result is low-cost and reliable connection – unhindered by remoteness, structural obstacles, and typical network dead zones. 

Additionally, we provide an end-to-end solution including hardware and software – a relationship that incorporates everything from installation to ongoing support. Solutions are customisable – adaptable to the shifting needs and aspirations of our clients. Our high-level expertise also equates to industry-leading and unique insights on every client’s digital transformation today and over time. 

Its efficacy makes it ideally suited to a range of sectors – delivering secure data in real time for asset tracking, monitoring, smart building implementation, and other IoT applications. The incredible versatility of our IoT technology and data analytics make digital transformation attainable. This helps businesses to maximise resource efficiency and use data to improve security, sustainability, and efficiency.  

Our SmarterView digital twin interface also allows for low-risk, low-output data insights that have the potential to optimise operations and infrastructure in cutting-edge ways. The perfect complement to Orion, it features a user-friendly interface, remote accessibility, customisable dashboards, instant alerts, and powerful security features – all of which align to the needs of modern business operations. 

Our success is connected to our clients’ success  

As our client base grows, so too does the successful implementation of our IoT solutions. From Steeper Group’s 40% saving on gas consumption and a cut of 33-tonne of eCO2 annual emissions to monitoring and tracking mission-critical military assets at HMNB Devonport, IoT solutions provide extensive benefits.  

The future starts today – and it’s set to be smarter 

“This achievement is testament to the dedication and tireless efforts of every member of our team and a celebration of our collective passion for innovation,” said our CEO, Mark Read. Our unique offerings put us on a trajectory for future success, with an offering that fully supports the interests and growth of our clients.
