Launched in 2020 by co-founders Craig Kesby and Angus Kennard, Inauro was created to
realize the value of IoT technology across industrial applications and improve everyday
operations. IoT devices produce a vast amount of data but are typically siloed depending on
their function. By linking data from sensors, devices and other digital systems used within an
organization, Inauro provides teams with a single source of data, streamlining workflows and

unlock streamlined operations and create efficiencies,” said Inauro co-founder and co-CEO
Kesby continued, “We’re looking forward to developing new functionality for our customers,

standards, jobs become safer and teams can concentrate on the most meaningful work.
Inauro will be a key partner as we continue to raise the bar for frontline teams.”
