Smart asset management in a click

How it works

Since 2009 we have been developing digital platforms which track assets including facilities, businesses, farms, utilities, and key infrastructure. Every asset is digitized, can be monitored, maintained, and accounted for in our platforms.
Smart devices collect live data on the conditions in the field and can be used to trigger changes remotely. This gives our customers the power to manage operations from anywhere in the world from the palm of their hand.
Our sensor platform enables our customers manage their assets on a prepaid basis, bringing them positive cash flow, saving time and money on revenue collection and avoiding disconnection / reconnection efforts.
Our modular platform is powered by IoT (Internet of Things), GIS (Geographic Information Systems), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), drones, blockchain, machine learning and mobile payment systems.

From disadvantaged youth to smart farmers


We started early 2021 with Upande as our service provider for ERPNext. Upande also provides us the hosting services.
So far I have been very satisfied about the services provided. Upande is reliable and up to the task, particularly when things go wrong, they are quick and accurate in their problem solving. I happily recommend Upande as your preferred service provider.
