Hiboo is a management platform designed to help manufacturers optimize their field operations. Thanks to the power of the Internet of Things, Hiboo is able to digitize all material assets, including those without energy (machines, tippers, trailers, etc.). Hiboo's strength lies in its ability to cover the entire value chain by combining intelligent sensors, integration of data from manufacturers' APIs, data processing and analysis. Once the data has been aggregated and processed, Hiboo centralizes it on a single, easy-to-use management platform.
Live from Las Vegas CES, Gérard Guinamand, ENGIE’s Chief Data Officer answered questions from La Tribune.
My presence at CES 2020 is related to our partnership with IMT (Institut Mines Telecom), more specifically for the IMT Bercy Innovation Prize. I had the pleasure of presenting a “Coup de Coeur” award to Hiboo, a startup working on data and of particular interest to the ENGIE Group.
Collaboration between a large group and startups requires finding a balance but presents many opportunities, including that of identifying answers or solutions to technical problems. It’s a way to dare, to experiment, to test ideas and innovations.
Secondly, it is important to scale up and identify the best way to work with these startups. This can take the form of sponsorship, as we currently do with IMT, equity investments or even takeovers of companies when we are particularly interested in their specific field.
Hiboo was awarded a prize of € 2,000. We plan to meet with certain BUs to test their solution, mainly for the moment to manage fleets of vehicles. They are already in contact with ENGIE solutions (INEO).
