Raunak Bhinge, managing director at Infinite Uptime, said: Our technical team is currently in the United States (US); we will be setting up a 15-member technical team in India and aim to grow to 100 people from the current 35 over the next year.

The company provides solutions to engineering and process industry, primarily in mechanical predictive maintenance to prevent production losses incurred due to machine breakdown. Our solution is a combination of a unique smart sensor system and edge computing that gathers all the required mechanical data from the machine where it is installed, analyses it from various aspects at the edge and provides information critical to predictive maintenance of the machine helping save good amount of downtime thereby improving productivity, said Bhinge.

Currently, 80% of Infinite Uptimes customers are in India and the company has recently set up a team in China.
