About Our Client
This we built for Esprida, an innovative technology company based in Canada that helps organizations across different sectors to manage and integrate physical devices,people-interactions and processes into their core business with the use of IoT.
IoT is on its way to transform not just business operations, but also Customer Experience (CX) and lives on the planet at large. According to an industry survey, by the end of 2016, we will be having more Internet-connected devices than people on the planet. Hence, being an entrepreneur, you must absorb it and innovate your modus operandi to maintain an edge.
