Posted on: January 30th 2017

Innovative Exeter-based infrastructure monitoring provider, Dashboard, has been shortlisted for an ‘Internet of Things’ Trailblazers Award.


Founded in 2015, Dashboard has quickly secured its reputation as a leading Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure monitoring expert. Starting out in the oil and gas industry, the firm has now diversified into a vast range of sectors, including energy, infrastructure, mining and utilities.


Based at the Exeter Science Park Centre, the Dashboard team has grown rapidly over the past year as the team of experts have been reaching out to companies across the world to trial its new IoT monitoring technology.


The Tech Trailblazer Awards showcase new and exciting tech products, solutions and software for enterprises based anywhere in the world. The awards recognise small businesses and start-ups, under five years old, across a range of technology categories from big data and virtualization, to security and storage.


Designed to support business growth, the prizes include exclusive coaching, mentoring and development. The winners are chosen by a public vote, which people can vote for at:


CEO Piers Corfield, said: “We are honoured to be shortlisted for this Trailblazers award, amongst innovative technology businesses. Dashboard’s infrastructure monitoring provides an automated way of offering assurance to businesses whose infrastructure is vital to its services. IoT is central to our business model and this great endorsement acknowledges the importance of applying new technology to solve the age-old issues faced by our customers and the industries we serve.”


Dashboard offers revolutionary remote industrial process and infrastructure monitoring solutions. Serving the oil and gas, mining and utilities sectors, Dashboard provides continuous real-time monitoring of pipes and other essential components. The resilient solution ensures a rapid response to any detected anomalies, preventing environmental damage due to leaks, sabotage, and theft.


“Dashboard is an excellent example of the innovation coming out of Exeter. This company has done a great job of raising the profile of IoT and technology innovations within the city since arriving in 2015, and is a fantastic success story for the city.” commented Cllr Rosie Denham, Lead Councillor for Economy at Exeter City Council.
