SafetyCulture invests AU$3M in groundbreaking IoT player Inauro

In today’s world of work, data equals visibility. Analytics are the bread and butter of good operations — it’s essential to be able to visualize and monitor data about anything from equipment and compliance to safety and environmental performance. 

However, these different applications often demand different devices, resulting in a vast amount of data concentrated in silos. As organizations grow in their capabilities, there’s an increasing need for interoperability between devices for teams to unlock full visibility.  

That’s why we’re excited to announce that SafetyCulture has invested AU$3M in Australian data and IoT software company, Inauro. As we build our operations platform, we’ve been keeping an eye on emerging technologies that enhance frontline processes — and Inauro is definitely one of them. 

This groundbreaking IoT player was founded in 2020 by co-founders Craig Kesby and Angus Kennard. Inauro’s integration platform enables previously siloed systems to ‘speak’ to each other. That way, key data and context is immediately usable. Needless to say, it’s a gamechanger for industrial operations. 

The IoT market in Australia and globally is thriving, but most IoT solutions are built to solve a specific problem which creates data silos across organisations. We want to solve this challenge and enable businesses to make the most of their IoT technology. At its most simple, we want to make sure the right information is available to the right person in real-time. That’s when we’ll unlock streamlined operations and create efficiencies.”

 — Craig Kesby, Inauro co-founder and co-CEO 

Inauro in action….

Inauro has built a customer base spanning agriculture, manufacturing and construction, and its flagship PerspioTM platform has been recognised by local and global award bodies, including IoT Alliance Australia. 

The platform has the flexibility to read data or create events across a huge variety of business systems, from CRMs to Safety Management, enabling the full automation of a workflow. And guess what? We’ve already gotten to work with it.

SafetyCulture and Inauro’s technology has been integrated to benefit Game Farm, a specialist poultry supplier that manages the entire farm to plate ecosystem of its produce. Together the technologies play a role in the oversight of temperature control across the production facility. This supports Game Farm to comply with Food Safety regulations and frees up staff from a largely manual task.

 “We’re looking forward to developing new functionality for our customers, including identifying more workflows where Inauro and SafetyCulture’s solutions can integrate to improve workplace operations,” said Inauro co-founder and co-CEO Craig Kesby.

So, what’s next? 

Game Farm is just the start! While Inauro’s efforts have concentrated on Australia so far, its platform benefits can be leveraged across a much wider geography. This partnership will allow SafetyCulture and Inauro to expand its joint technology offering globally, across new sectors and markets. It will also support SafetyCulture customers to take their digitization efforts to the next level by giving them the power to use data and the IoT to streamline operations, including with tools like iAuditor by SafetyCulture. 

“Today, SafetyCulture collects data from 800 million workplace checks a year, a lot of which are conducted manually. Inauro will help us to automate many of the equipment checks for our customers. We’re constantly pushing to find new ways to innovate and automate processes so tasks can be done to higher standards, jobs become safer and teams can concentrate on the most meaningful work. Inauro will be a key partner as we continue to raise the bar for frontline teams.”
