San Francisco, October 29, 2014 – SEE Forge Inc., provider of the energy industry’s premier automation platform for collecting, visualizing and analyzing field-based processes via a FatFinger™ mobile app, today announced the company is presenting their pitch at the Siemens New Ventures Forum in San Francisco at 1:30pm local time.
Siemens New Ventures Forum is a business plan showcase that allows entrepreneurs to present before an influential audience, engage with Siemens and accelerate partnership discussions, and network with the vibrant innovation ecosystem of the San Francisco Bay Area.
For the 2014 event, Siemens invited 21 startup companies out of 130 applicants in the areas of “Smart Data” analytics, data-driven services, cloud-based technologies, smart grid and factory automation and robotics.
SEE Forge was selected as one of the top companies to present their FatFinger™ mobile app that help companies collect, visualize and analyze field-based processes to improve operational efficiencies.
Companies waste billions of dollars a year on inefficient site based processes. Paper, Excel and legacy systems frustrate employees and put vital operations as risk. Employees demand a fast and simple consumer experience. SEE Forge provides a real-time window into operations uncovering risks and opportunities for improvement that have never been seen before.
“We recently helped a global manufacturing company reduce its error frequency rates by 86% while also reducing their wasted materials by 79%” said James McDonough, co-founder and CEO of SEE Forge. “Everyone hates filling out paperwork. Our goal is to eliminate that.”
SEE Forge is backed by Houston based Mercury Fund with over $200 million under management, Correlation Ventures and Surge Accelerator which is ranked in the top ten accelerators in the US.
“We invested in SEE Forge because of the entrepreneurs,” said Kirk Coburn, Founder and Managing Director of SURGE Accelerator. “The founders are operational experts that have spent years in the field understanding customer needs. We have seen many other startups in this space, but none of them with this level of expertise and focus on delivering an easy to-use-product.”
