Our IoT applications are used in smart homes and yachts, intelligent street and industrial lighting, hotel rooms, test cars and more.

IoT Application Development Services

We focus on every aspect of IoT ecosystems above low-level programming for hardware, including:

  • High-level programming for sensors and devices
  • Software for gateways
  • Data storage, processing and analytics in the cloud or in a LAN
  • Web and mobile end-user apps

We also partner with device producers to provide businesses with all-round IoT solutions, so if your company is looking to benefit from connected devices, drop us a line to discuss your ideas with HQSoftware’s IoT experts.

Business Value Across Markets

IoT providers and enterprise adopters are just discovering the true potential behind collecting and analyzing data from connected devices. The opportunities are endless, and here are just a few of them of them:

  • Energy

    Optimizing production and reducing costs for energy organizations as well as helping businesses and consumers to manage their energy flows

  • Retail

    Improving customer experience, optimizing supply chain operations and creating new revenue streams

  • Logistics (connected fleet)

    Getting real-time information about fleet performance

  • Manufacturing

    Monitoring operating conditions and performance levels of buildings and equipment

  • Health

    Remote monitoring of patient vitals (for example, glucose tracking for diabetes)
    Learn More

Apart from just connecting things, we will help you realize how an IoT solution can drive long-term economic value for your enterprise and your customers.

Our Approach to End-user IoT Applications

Using ready-made platforms for reduced development costs and faster delivery

To quickly deploy a complete IoT ecosystem at an organization or bring a new IoT application to the market, we use out-of-the-box platforms that handle enrollment of “things” and data congestion. This way, we just create an application that helps end-users get the most out of this data.

Managing connected products and data on all screens and devices

We deliver intuitive, visualized web and mobile applications for non-tech users to control devices and manage data as easily as they do it in any other app.

IoT integration

To make IoT data available across the enterprise, we connect the IoT solution with your ERP, CRM, EHR and more.

Architecture That Fits Your Settings

Cloud-based approach

IoT application development

A system’s business logic, including data storage and processing, is set up in the cloud, which provides:

  • Security and compliance thanks to identity management and authentication services
  • Elasticity at times of higher demand, without building and scaling up an independent IT infrastructure
  • Accessibility via geographically distributed data centers for better performance
  • Flexible storage options
  • Advanced data analytics
  • Remote device and data management for end-users

Mesh network

internet of things application development - mesh network

We create a cost-efficient network of nodes (devices) that connect to other nodes with or without a central server. All nodes are interconnected so that if one of them drops out, the data will find its way through other nodes, using a routing protocol.

Intranet of things

For better security and self-sufficiency, all devices are connected via a gateway or P2P within an internal network, usually inaccessible from the Internet.

Gain the Benefit Behind IoT Data

Did you know that 99% of the data collected from a typical oil rig is not used to inform business processes? Most enterprise adopters use IoT implementations to reduce costs and risks, but there is much more disruptiveness to the business value if you look at the potential of IoT more broadly.

Cost reduction and efficiency
Automatic tracking and processing can be used to monitor processes and equipment as well as remove human errors and repetitive work. For example, through continuous monitoring, a manufacturer can determine when the plant will require maintenance, while saving on routine maintenance costs and preventing failures.

Risk management
Connected devices can help to secure employees, assets and data, including the physical safety of remote workers as well as the quality and safety of products and services. Think of telematics (telecommunications and informatics), which enables car manufacturers to track the performance of their products over the lifecycle and create new designs based on these rich insights.

Revenue growth and innovation
IoT can provide greater insight on product and customer lifecycles or even help to understand partners and employees better. Take, for instance, human health. With the help of devices for remote, real-time monitoring of chronic patients, healthcare organizations can ensure that users stick to prescribed therapies, thus reducing hospitalizations and readmissions.

And most importantly, if you take a closer look at your organization, you will find that it is possible to create value in these three areas altogether, not just in the short term but over time as well.
