The Indian subsidiary of Santa Clara based IoT IaaS provider Aeris Communications has launched an IoT solution developed for the social and not-for-profit sectors. The solution is designed for non-profits, NGOs and other organisations involved in delivering social services, welfare support and emergency aid. The new solution is part of a move by Aeris India to widen the scope of IoT services and benefits.

The solution is designed to help promote efficiency, operational transparency and better engagement between stakeholders. It is designed to provide a single framework for the management and support of services ranging from disaster relief and reconstruction support to long-term development cooperation projects with local partner organisations.

The launch customer for this solution is Welthungerhilfe, one of Germany's biggest private organisations for development and humanitarian aid, which is working on water conservation in India.

"At Aeris, we have always worked towards broadening the spectrum of IoT adopters. IoT will be able live up to its potential only if it moves closer to mass adoption. Many social enterprises have already embraced technology to further their development agenda and with this solution, they will be able to use Internet of Things as well. This will not just help social enterprises but also the beneficiaries they work with," said Dr. Rishi Bhatnagar, President, Aeris India.
