We've come a long way
Foundation and seed investment
SPREAD starts operations in November. Cavalry, La Famiglia and several Business Angels invest in SPREAD
First customer and use case
Mercedes becomes our first customer and, after a successful pilot phase, we released our first use case with a complete user journey to guide workers in finding electric failures in cars 75% faster.
Rollout and expansion
In the beginning of 2022, we managed to scale 3 use cases along the complete product lifecycle to multiple customers, industries, and factories around the world
By developing SPREAD Studio, our internal low-code environment, we managed to speed up use case development by a huge margin, arriving at 12 use cases within months.
