Ôasys is a new start-up with an innovative idea: a water-tracking tool you can use at home to control your water consumption. The tool is very easy to install at home and shows how much water you use, track the progression and set challenges to reduce your total consumption.

GREAT NEWS AT CARRIOTS!!

It is now official, we have raised a Series-B round.

From here we want to thank all the people involved in Carriots: customers, partners, users, friends, supporters and of course our great team. You all helped to achieve this great milestone for Carriots.

Here is the official press note:

Carriots www.carriots.com , a leading player in software for the Internet of Things, privately held and headquartered in Madrid (Spain), has raised a Series-B round to finance its international growth and pursue the development of its IOT Application Enablement Platform (AEP) and new products for Smart Cities and Industries. The investment has been led by Suez Environnement Group (www.suez-environnement.com) and the Spanish Government through the public company CDTI (Spain’s public Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology www.cdti.es )

Incorporated in 2011, Carriots is already recognized as one of the world leaders in AEP Software for IOT with customers in many industries such as Manufacturing, Utilities and HealthCare and Smart-Cities. Carriots has already built a solid base of clients in four continents, some of whom include top Fortune 500 companies such as Cisco Systems, ArcelorMittal or Enel Group. With this basis, along with a strategic partnership network, the company has built a growth plan including geographic expansion and new product development to consolidate its leadership in innovation along with sectorial specialization. The capital from this financing round will be used to expand the go-to-market strategy of the company and to invest in additional platform capabilities that build upon Carriots IOT platform leading position.

In the past four years we have built our platform, increasing its versatility and features. It has also passed many different tests as our clients demanded more services and more capacity. We now have a powerful tool that dramatically reduces times of development and costs for companies building connected products for the IOT” said Miguel Castillo, CEO of Carriots.

The Carriots platform provides the most common modules to M2M / IOT projects (device management, data collection, data storage and security) in order to reduce development time for applications. The platform is available as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on a public cloud with a pay-as-you-grow model based on the number of devices. It is also available as a private cloud and on premise licenses for system integrators and large customers.

The co-inversion of Suez Environnement Group and CDTI has been made via the fund Venture Opportunities (VENTO), managed by Suma Capital. VENTO is a public-private investment tool that invests between 0,5 and 5 million euros in the launching and expansion phases of companies with innovative products in the fields of water cycle, environment, energy and smart cities.
