About ei3

ei3 is both cutting edge and rooted in history. It started in 1999 with the insight that industrial machine data becomes more valuable when securely liberated from the factory floor. Since then ei3 has built and delivered solutions that deliver billions of dollars in value to our customers, based on secure communications, big data, and plentiful sensors.


Over time terms such as “Digital Transformation”, “Internet of Things”, and “Industry 4.0” were coined for our original insight, and other companies have entered the market. Because we were there when it started, we have the real-world experience that allows us to deliver a sensible and cost-efficient, “no-code IoT” approach, proven by thousands of people connecting to tens of thousands of machines every day. And we keep investing in our apps, infrastructure, and our people – keeping us and our customers ahead of the competition.


ei3 customers own their data. Our role is to keep data safe, secure and available. This critically important task is made easier with our ISO 27001 certified private cloud. Our state-of-the-art equipment located around the world in high-performance data centers is designed from the ground up to meet the needs of industrial machines and their owners and is open to integrate with your own data servers or cloud infrastructure.


We are independent, self-financed and have grown based purely on the strength of our business and the value we bring to our customers. For us the future looks bright, we’re proud to have served many excellent companies over the years, and look forward to continued growth.
