Our Story

Where we began

We come from a strong product development background with our historic roots firmly planted in the defence and mining industry. Communication Technology was and is strongly at the focus of most of our current and previous developments.

In early 2017 we started exploring possible Communication Technologies that can enable IoT with scale rollout and we have since then focused our attention on LPWAN. Visiosoft was the first developer and producer of various LPWAN technologies in Africa and we continue to lead from the front.

Visiosoft has the unique ability to push various data/sensor sources into local and cloud based services using existing, custom and leading edge communication technologies. Various I/O interfaces, integrated sensors and edge computing technologies gives our products the proverbial “edge”.

We are proudly South African providing solutions to the World. Our team have various expertise to provide end to end solutions with a strong focus on smart product firmware and agile operations. Besides developing our own products we further produce with large scaling capability with more than 40k+ devices to date.

Finally we focus our attention to make big data relevant using communication – we are the people to get your data to the cloud…
