About TwinThread

The first per-asset subscription service designed to open the doors to peak performance in all your equipment

Through the IoT, digital twins, and the power of advanced machine learning, TwinThread helps you isolate, replicate, and scale peak performance.

By continuously monitoring your equipment and automatically identifying opportunities, a TwinThread subscription fully optimizes your most critical asset – your expertise – in your equipment and your industry.

What is our vision?

Our vision is to enable you to disrupt the status quo of productivity in your industry.

If you are an OEM, manufacturer, or service provider, say goodbye to the old way, where your equipment’s data is quietly gathering dust.  Say hello to extreme productivity, where data from across your fleet of assets continuously drives innovation and makes each of your machines a little smarter each day.

What drives us?

We are a group of entrepreneurs, industry veterans, and technologists who believe to our core we can make the industrial world a whole lot more efficient than it is today.

As a group, we have delivered software solutions to more than 10,000 industrial facilities worldwide – across all major industries.  We know how efficient the typical power plant is. We know how efficient the typical food plant is.  And we know how much untapped potential lies in heavy equipment deployed in the field.

And we’ve seen, over and over, how machine learning and artificial intelligence can unlock extreme productivity – the kind that can change the world.
