With extensive know-how big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, virtual reality, ROOTCLOUD delivers products and service in the most secure and compliant way.

Putzmeister, a famous German manufacturer of concrete pumps, has become the first customer for IROOTECH in Europe. “The ROOTCLOUD based Machine Cockpit enables Putzmeister customers to get the best performance from their concrete pump fleet via a variety of features.” said, Sebastian Fuhrich, Putzmeister innovation factory Lead.

The success of the industrial internet depends on a collaborative ecosystem of partners. On April 24th, IROOTECH will sign the cooperation contracts with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud service, with Telenor for telecom service. “IROOTECH believes that a local collaborative ecosystem will provide its customers with the best service experience” said, Luchuan Huang, CMO of IROOTECH.
