Ensuring a higher ROI on your Technology Investment: Here’s How
October 29, 2020
Given the ongoing global pandemic, industry dynamics have shapeshifted beyond our expectations and comprehension. It has always been tricky for investors to choose the right product startup to invest in, and the current scenario has made things all the more difficult. The threshold has shrunk from being a successful venture to a sustained venture. A report from Review 42 suggests that “an estimated 90% of new startups fail” with 20% of them failing even to cross their first year of existence.
This burning issue in the startup ecosystem is the void that exists between the startups and the investors. Even when an investor zeroes down a particular startup to back on, the compatibility becomes a challenge. The lack of a technology partner or a ‘bridge’ between the two stakeholders is where most of the problems start.
With the challenges evolving at an unprecedented rate, the investor-startup duo needs a technology partner more than ever. Even though startups are mostly in-line with emerging technologies, they lack the experience and even expertise in some cases. Having a compatible technology partner not only elevates the technology prowess of the venture but also boosts its entire value proposition while promising a higher ROI for the investment at the same time. In a nutshell, it’s a win-win for everyone.

A unique opportunity came to us when a prominent European investor was seeking a Technology Partner for a data-driven solution provider in Iceland. Their in-house team was skilled but lacked the specific expertise to deploy the sophisticated technical framework. The project was to deliver an app that could minimize the likelihood of injuries onboard high-speed boats due to wave slamming forces.
Gateway Digital stepped in to fill the technology expertise void and delivered the project successfully on time. We saved the entire venture from being sabotaged and brought in the latest and, more importantly, better technology. Here are a few highlights from a technological standpoint:
We created a responsive website, a web-based admin portal and an Android tablet app.
Our web-based admin portal lets fleet managers monitor boats’ activities in real-time by displaying their current location on a map, impacts detected, average speed, etc.
The tablet app gathers data in real-time, analyses it, and issues alert (including SMS alerts) to fleet managers if needed.
