Shoof Technologies Is Selected Into the Plug and Play IoT Accelerator Program

Oct 3, 2017 - (Newswire)

Shoof Technologies Incorporated, pioneer of an advanced wireless technology designed for the Industrial IoT, announced that it has been selected for the IoT Accelerator Program by Plug and Play Tech Center, the world’s largest technology investor and accelerator. After having previously been selected for the Supply Chain & Logistics Program and Food & Beverage Program, Shoof’s selection for the IoT Program marks its third acceptance into an accelerator program.  This makes Shoof one of only six startups to be chosen for three accelerator programs at Plug and Play.

“We are honored to be chosen again for Plug and Play’s accelerator program.  Our acceptance into three exclusive accelerator programs serves as a strong testament to the significance of Shoof technology.  Industrial IoT is a trillion-dollar industry, but it does not have a dedicated wireless connectivity technology. And end-to-end visibility is a must-have to optimize manufacturing and logistics processes in today’s business environment,” said Ra’ed Elmurib, CEO, Shoof Technologies. “Shoof’s advanced wireless technology is the only connectivity technology that solves this industry problem.” 

"We are amazed about the early traction and number of projects that Shoof has initiated within only a few weeks of being part of our Supply Chain, IoT and Mobility programs. As investors, we are equally excited and honored to back entrepreneurs of such caliber," says Ivan Zgomba, Partner at Plug and Play Ventures.

Shoof technology is capable of tracking assets both indoors and outdoors, covering a range of up to 2 kilometers non-line of site, and connecting up to 100,000 tags per base station. Shoof makes transporting data from assets anywhere to the cloud effortless.

Though the applications for Shoof technology are far-reaching, Shoof’s primary focus today is to solve the problem of end-to-end visibility of assets in motion in the $40 billion-dollar logistics market. Shoof expects pilot programs with multiple tier-1 customers to launch shortly.
