We understand industrial equipment manufacturing because we have lived it for over 30 years. elevāt was born out of a 30-year leader in heavy equipment supply and integration. Before elevāt existed, we were receiving requests for guidance on how to proceed with IoT and digitization initiatives from our customers. It soon became clear that the solutions available were not built to fit into existing OEM processes, were complicated to use, were difficult and time-consuming to implement and the information delivered didn’t help improve business processes. So, elevāt was incubated within the walls of an industrial manufacturing and integration company and rolled out as its own entity in 2016.
