Asset monitoring and protection solutions are becoming critical to corporations and industries globally. One member of the Rackspace Startup Program has been developing hardware and cloud software designed to manage and protect business assets. Austin-based Nuve focuses on the emerging field of asset management and fraud prevention. The company has developed a new technology based on sensors, a cloud-based platform and a mobile application that allows its customers to better protect, control and monitor their property.
From a chance meeting with an oil and gas company based in Mexico, the concept of Nuve was born.
“We met with a company in Mexico that required fuel cargo protection because it was being stolen,” explains Antonio Arocha, Nuve’s founder and CEO. “We came in, solved it and decided to offer our technology to other industries such as transportation, construction and even government.”
Arocha credits Nuve’s engineering team with empowering the company to tackle the needs of businesses across verticals.
“Nuve capitalizes on its ability to solve problems over a wide range of business sectors worldwide using its patent-pending technology and its fast-concept-to-market strategy thanks to its result-oriented core of engineers,” says Arocha. “We have a strong research and development team based in Austin, Texas.”
Arocha says the Rackspace Startup Program was key in providing Nuve the cloud infrastructure to develop and deploy its sensors, its cloud-based platform and its mobile application.
“The Rackspace Startup Program helped by giving us the tools we needed to make Nuve happen,” says Arocha. “We have been using Rackspace from the very beginning via Slicehost, a great tool that was taught in college to deploy applications and we ran with it. Deploying new assets on our servers is crucial and we need tools that are both reliable and safe. Rackspace creates mobility, which allows us to keep moving forward with sales and development.”
Connecting with any asset, monitoring it and controlling it are Nuve’s goals. The developer team at Nuve has a vision to deploy its asset management protection and fraud prevention solution throughout various industries, including shipping, cargo, rail, fleet and delivery.
“We see our platform being used by several industries to protect their assets, effectively reducing any risk of theft and receiving real-time alerts if such an event would occur, with our vision to become the best asset monitoring and protection solution in the world,” concludes Arocha. “Nuve technology is helping our society and clients, in general, by reducing crime and optimizing their logistics.”
