Olisto was founded by Arjen Noorbergen because he was missing the interconnectivity between services and IoT devices. This interconnectivity is the key for any product or service to be of great value to end customers. In his previous role as founder and CTO of Quby, he created the Toon smart thermostat and sold the company to the Dutch utility company Eneco. To solve this problem, Olisto has built a consumer app with a growing public platform of smart connections. Over 80 K users make use of the over 100 K triggs (the Olisto name of a connection rule). However, we discovered an additional need for companies to create more value for their services, products, and apps, without the need for such a 3rd party app.
As a response, we created Olisto Studio, a content management system for connected experiences. A platform designed not only for creating smart connections but also for describing the customer experience. Along the way, we found out that corporates want to have their data on-premise and this is when we started offering private platforms next to our public platform.
Many departments have their own content management systems, but not for product managers and marketers. We want to be the content management system for product managers and marketers.
Our team consists of a group of talented and experienced developers previously working on IoT projects including the Toon Thermostat. The daily management has an extensive background in IoT development, e-commerce, marketing, and corporate sale.
