Disrupt-X, a Dubai-based IoT development company, is working with Intel and local company Imdaad to introduce IoT technology to enhance facilities management (FM) services in the UAE.
Disrupt-X’s Ignite Shield is a full-stacked IoT system monitoring air and water quality through a cloud platform and mobile app. Ignite Shield can monitor outdoor and indoor air quality, smart water infrastructure, swimming pools, spas, water tanks, industrial assets and water pressure.
“Imdaad’s partnership with Disrupt-X to launch this innovative IoT is in line with our digital transformation vision and supports our efforts to strengthen the FM industry in the UAE and the region,” said Naganandh Lakshmanan, executive director of FM at Imdaad. “Besides offering significant improvements in efficiencies and cost-savings, Ignite Shield will also enable us to operate with greater flexibility and effectiveness by empowering our employees and optimising our operations, thereby helping us to continue delivering FM services of the highest standards to our clients.”
Disrupt-X CEO Yaseen Aljaizani added: “With the demand for IoT gaining traction globally, we envisage early adopters like Imdaad with vast client reach will accelerate the emergence of IoT for FM services. We are confident that IoT technology will help FM reduce their overheads and enable them to respond faster to clients with real-time information.”
And Intel’s enterprise and public sector manager for the Gulf region Adib Rajji said: “We strive to provide Disrupt-X with what they need so they can focus on their success with their customers and business. At Intel, we enable early development engagement so partners can take advantage of Intel’s leading-edge technology and edge-to-cloud offerings.”
