Our story

Roy Chikballapur and Antonin Pevrol founded MachIQ (Machines + IQ) Software in 2016 with the goal of building a neutral and brand agnostic platform bringing together machinery companies and process manufacturers to make the most of their machines. While developing digital services for machinery customers at Schneider Electric, Roy noticed the absence of a neutral, brand-agnostic platform for Industry 4.0 services. Instead, the market was crowded with predominantly single-brand IoT platforms and customer portals which limited their customers’ choice and forced them inside walled gardens that lacked interoperability. He teamed up with Antonin who was trying to solve the problem of collaborating with hundreds of component suppliers on defence projects. We built MachIQ Software on a core belief that Industry 4.0 will deliver value only when industrial facilities and their machinery & service suppliers can exchange data without compromising competitive advantages, negotiating leverages and IP in the process of this exchange. We are committed to building a secure, symmetric and outcomes driven platform to enable this collaboration.
