If there’s anything we are able to all agree about 2020 is that it had been a remarkably odd and challenging calendar year for everyone.
Adaptation was the term of the entire year and we’d to constantly reinvent ourselves to be able to match all of the new things the planet kept throwing at all of us.
Infraspeak was simply no exception to that. We’d our challenges, certain, but we also got our wins and we had been fortunate to come using this year with brand new experiences, a much bigger family and, needless to say, many new tales to tell.
Here are many of them. You’re hoped by us enjoy it!
Out with the older, in with the brand new
Infraspeak truly lived around its New Year’s resolution and following its company retreat, it had been period to announce the initial new shiny things we’d waiting for you for 2020. The brand new year brought new features, brand new offices and even a fresh Infraspeak!
2019 had seen we almost double in proportions so Infrapeak’s company retreat in January was also our biggest ever. These days, year later and around one, there’s almost 90 Infraspeakers so a fresh office was certainly in the works to be able to accomodate our fast growing team.
But we didn’t really cease there and in February we launched the a lot anticipated New Infraspeak. An easier, faster, more smart and, let’s encounter it, totally gorgeous edition of our system.
With a more impressive team came a more impressive (and better!) product also it didn’t take miss us to start out releasing new equipment for the intelligent maintenance management system. In March, bad reception or system problems stopped as an presssing issue for specialists using Infraspeak, because they could create and execute function orders while functioning offline now.
COVID-19 provides entered the arena
April brought all of us the unexpected information that could eventually shape all of those other year for Infraspeak and the planet: COVID-19.
The initial shock quickly gave solution to a massive community effort to get ways to cope with the pandemic in creative ways. Tech4Covid19, several a lot more than 5000 tech volunteers co-created by Infraspeak’s CEO Felipe Ávila da Costa and other Infraspeakers, worked to generate solutions that helped medical researchers tirelessly, improved schooling and contributed to bettering the entire lives of these who needed it probably the most.
Within May, Infraspeak expanded its initiatives to greatly help defeat the pandemic and launched Place Checkup: a platform that allowed establishments to inform their customers these were sticking to the required security processes to mitigate the contamination of COVID-19. The total result? A large number of doors in a large number of countries displayed the area Checkup COVID-19 Avoidance Seal building rely on amongst shoppers and customers.
But we weren’t quite done however and in June, we launched the Clean & Safe Seal platform. Issued by Turismo de Portugal, it qualified compliance with the hygiene and safety requirements established by the Nationwide Tourism Authority.
Living in the sunlight
The summertime didn’t just recreate sunny times and warmer temperatures. With renewed hope and energy later on, we went to focusing on making life better for everybody back, through our intelligent upkeep management platform.
Within July, we launched the 1st chapter of our brand new story, our IoT Store, which allowed Infraspeak users to boost their operational administration by gaining usage of the most recent IoT technology.
Within August, we took everything we’d learned from the torrent of reside streaming and podcasts we’d noticed and produced and launched Talks at Infraspeak: a residential area effort where industry specialists could come together to meet up, share and study from each other’s experiences.
And finally, in September, after the majority of the group had keep coming back from their vacations and when likely to the seaside was (sadly!) longer a choice no, we awed everyone aside and returned to utilize a brand new face with Infraspeak’s New Visuals!
One down, two to move
You can’t create a homely house with out a solid foundation, can you?
With new visuals, new content and the beginnings of a fresh story in place, it had been time to reach work, use the couple of months we’d left in the entire year and make all of those other things we’d planned happen!
October was a occupied month: we released the a lot requested Gatekeeper app, growing risk regulation and awareness compliance for Infraspeak users, and earned the Best Building Functions Startup award at the Builtworld Proptech Advancement Contest.
Within November and December sufficient reason for the year arriving at an end, we simply had to step issues up the notch and we did that by completing up both chapters of our brand new story.
November saw the unlock of a large number of third-party software integrations that Infraspeak customers could connect their functions to, gaining usage of a much bigger and powerful right and tool with time for the holidays, we released Infraspeak Hub to finish the entire year however you like. With the Hub, Infraspeak customers can build their very own Infraspeak by linking our indigenous apps to accessible integrations and also hardware, right into a single system that matches the precise specifications of these businesses.
Is that?! What’s next?
Significantly?! After all of this?!
But that’s great. We had been expecting that!
2020 may have been a challenging 12 months but we wouldn’t be Infraspeak if we didn’t discover a way to also make 2021 challenging. We’ve lots of new factors planned even though we’re not quite prepared to reveal them with you however, we’d want to invite you to become a part of them by witnessing the development of our business in the upcoming yr.
We’re grateful to possess had you simply by our aspect during our trip these past couple of months and wish to say you’re an incredible companion for additional journeys ahead.
