The idea for our asset management company arose from a need that was visibly lacking in the safety and services industry. After 12 years of working in the fire protection industry and 4 years in the mining engineering sector, our founder, Michael Kirk, picked up the same issues. There was no proof.
The belief that the right technology existed to solve this problem resulted in a search for the right software. It needed to fulfil the following needs:
In June 2018, Michael took his issue to Warren Hansen of Billow, who drew out a concept that would become the solution. Together they began testing the application in October 2018 and it worked. AssetPool - the asset management company - was born.
AssetPool went to market in April 2019 with a handful of test companies, and we signed our first paying customers in July 2019.
As of January 2020, AssetPool has over 50,000 inspections under our belt. We have close on 100 customers directly and over 1,000 indirectly. We are transitioning into the IOT space in February 2020, and will continue to transform the way that inspection-based asset and fleet management is handled.
