Global IoT Innovators

About us

We’re a business created by experienced professionals who identified the limitations of previous IoT monetisation solutions. We work with organisations around the globe in sectors such as agritech, smart-cities, logistics, and healthcare. Our team works closely with companies at all levels to ensure that IoT becomes a seamless opportunity for growth.

We’re a global development company powering the new wave of global IoT innovation in the cloud.

Bringing IoT developers together

Our growing development community and support services mean we're fostering the leading global IoT innovation centre. We welcome approaches from innovators and developers

The home of IoT monetisation

70% of IoT applications are unprofitable.

New business cases are identifiable but most are hard to validate in a given IoT vertical. They often need a business model that can change quickly as they learn, without a costly re-deployment. b-things enable this approach.

Our platform

Our core product abacus, is a ground-up platform, developed inhouse using an API first approach, making it of interest to any organisation creating or owning an IOT application.

We believe it’s the most flexible, rating, charging and billing platform in the World. It offers brand new features to both enterprise, industry and government - like real-time rating, charging and billing.

abacus is a landmark platform and for the first time, IoT applications can manage millions of devices, over any network and combine rating and charging for any measure (water flow, KWh, Mbs) over an infinite set of rules, networks, tariffs, and devices.

Its 5G ready but we support anything from GSM to WLAN and beyond. b-things will continue to power new innovations in IoT.

“The reason why we chose b-things as our IoT platform provider was the enormous flexibility of their solution. We haven't encountered any 'can't do', although we have come up with some challenging questions. Bringing creative solutions to complex problems makes our two companies feel like one team”
