Non-governmental organizations

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have been pivotal in bridging the gap between technology and the community. Through public awareness campaigns, workshops, and grassroots initiatives, NGOs encourage individuals and local businesses to adopt IoT solutions for sustainable living. These efforts range from deploying IoT-enabled water-saving systems in drought-prone areas to setting up community-based renewable energy projects facilitated by IoT devices.

How does IoT aid in climate change mitigation and adaptation?

The Internet of Things (IoT) serves as a pivotal tool in both mitigating and adapting to climate change by enabling real-time data collection, resource optimization, and community preparedness. Through a network of interconnected sensors and devices, IoT facilitates immediate responses to environmental shifts, empowers sustainable resource management, and equips communities to better cope with climate-related challenges.

The role of carbon footprints and how IoT helps to reduce them

There is a direct link between carbon footprints and climate change—higher emissions exacerbate global warming and its associated impacts. As specialists in climate change software solutions, we help businesses monitor and reduce their carbon footprints through IoT integration and customized software. Let’s list some of them. 

  • Smart grids for US energy distribution – IoT devices can intelligently manage energy distribution, reducing waste of electricity and thus reducing the carbon footprint of power generation.
  • Intelligent transportation systems – IoT can optimize traffic flow through smart signaling, reducing the time cars spend idling, which in turn reduces emissions.
  • Waste management systems – smart garbage bins can alert collection services when they’re full, optimizing routes and reducing the frequency and distance that garbage trucks need to travel, thus reducing their emissions.
  • Systems for smart buildings – IoT-enabled HVAC and lighting systems can adjust automatically based on occupancy and need, reducing energy consumption and therefore emissions from electricity use.
  • Precision agriculture monitoring software – by monitoring soil conditions, weather, and crop health, IoT devices can precisely apply water, fertilizer, or pesticides only where needed, reducing waste and emissions from farming operations.
  • Real-time emission monitoring in factories – IoT sensors can actively measure emissions from factories, allowing for immediate adjustments to industrial processes to stay within regulatory guidelines and reduce pollutants.
  • Water conservation – smart irrigation systems can optimize water use, reducing the energy-intensive process of water extraction, treatment, and distribution.

The system has produced a significant competitive advantage in the industry thanks to SumatoSoft’s well-thought opinions.

They shouldered the burden of constantly updating a project management tool with a high level of detail and were committed to producing the best possible solution.

Nectarin LLC aimed to develop a complex Ruby on Rails-based platform, which would be closely integrated with such systems as Google AdWords, Yandex Direct and Google Analytics.

I was impressed by SumatoSoft’s prices, especially for the project I wanted to do and in comparison to the quotes I received from a lot of other companies.

Also, their communication skills were great; it never felt like a long-distance project. It felt like SumatoSoft was working next door because their project manager was always keeping me updated. Initially.

We tried another company that one of our partners had used but they didn’t work out. I feel that SumatoSoft does a better investigation of what we’re asking for. They tell us how they plan to do a task and ask if that works for us. We chose them because their method worked with us.

SumatoSoft is great in every regard including costs, professionalism, transparency, and willingness to guide. I think they were great advisors early on when we weren’t ready with a fully fleshed idea that could go to market.

They know the business and startup scene as well globally.

SumatoSoft is the firm to work with if you want to keep up to high standards. The professional workflows they stick to result in exceptional quality.

Important, they help you think with the business logic of your application and they don’t blindly follow what you are saying. Which is super important. Overall, great skills, good communication, and happy with the results so far.

Together with the team, we have turned the MVP version of the service into a modern full-featured platform for online marketers. We are very satisfied with the work the SumatoSoft team has performed, and we would like to highlight the high level of technical expertise, coherence and efficiency of communication and flexibility in work.

We can say with confidence that SumatoSoft has realized all our ideas into practice.

We are absolutely convinced that cooperation between companies is only successful when based on effective teamwork (and Captain Obvious is on our side!). But the teams may vary on the degree of their cohesion.

They are very sharp and have a high-quality team. I expect quality from people, and they have the kind of team I can work with. They were upfront about everything that needed to be done.

I appreciated that the cost of the project turned out to be smaller than what we expected because they made some very good suggestions. They are very pleasant to work with.
