Adroit and Spark NZ announced today that they’ve partnered to deliver innovative Environmental IoT solutions utilising the Spark IoT Network.

Adroit is a New Zealand specialist in technology used to monitor environmental changes, and drive efficiency in sustainable industries such as farming, clean-water management and aquaculture.

Adroit Commercial Director, Blair Stewart said that the partnership allows the company to scale up rapidly to meet the growing demand for environmental measurement and reporting.

“A wave of new legislation, combined with increased consumer expectations is driving a surge in interest by businesses of all sizes,” says Stewart.

“Climate change, environmental protection and sustainability are significant global issues and IoT technology is key to identifying the problems and providing solutions.

“Spark NZ and Adroit have partnered to make this essential technology easily accessible for businesses, councils, community groups and other organisations across New Zealand,” he said.

Spark NZ IoT Lead, Tony Agar says he’s excited to work in partnership with Adroit to ensure Kiwi businesses are at the edge of innovation.

“Bringing together our extensive Spark IoT networks, and leading industry experts coupled with Adroit’s technology and smart devices has seen more accurate real-time data and business insights provided across a range of industries and environments,” Agar said.
