Based on a personally experienced emergency amongst our founding team, iGT started shaping the idea for the first version of the iGT Health solution.
The founding idea was that there really was no efficient and safe solution that allowed for remote monitoring of a person´s health. And, most welfare technology solutions addressed only the professional side of the equation. With a deep belief in putting users, the first iGT solution was developed.
The company was originally based in a mountainous area in Norway, Hallingdal, where the first IoT experiences were made in close collaboration with local care providers and first responder units of different roles. Allowing the company to experiment with a local community, allowed us to quickly iterate as we learned new things.
We soon put these experiences to work into larger applications and ultimately started landing international clients and partners. Our Nordic roots still stay with us, as we grow into new geographical areas.
