In mid-2010, after a few years providing LBS, mobile & web product development services to clients, long-time technology entrepreneur Shailendra Jain (founder, CEO) and his colleagues noticed that the "where" trends, including geo-location and mapping were fast becoming integrated into everything that people were doing - from business and fitness to travel and photography. These trends were also moving away from solely traditional personal computing and web platforms to popular portable consumer devices such as phones, cameras, telematics sensors and other special-purpose machines. Beyond just geo-awareness, sensorial data from various devices were starting to be used by nearly everyone, everywhere.
Yet, they also noticed a critical inhibitor for sensor-use and geo-awareness in corporate customers. Traditional solutions required installations of expensive devices and special-purpose software & apps. Also, these solutions didn't combine a range of sensor data and location intelligence in a way that provided control and value to employees and businesses together. Bridging this gap– combining the flexibility of a cloud-based, always-on solution with easy to use privacy management and on-demand actionable sensor events became their impetus for founding Abaqus Inc.™
