Stellapps is the first of its kind startup in India working towards the digitization of the dairy supply chain. Started in the year 2011, we are an IIT Madras incubated, Bangalore based, Internet of Things (IoT) startup with a primary focus on data acquisition and machine learning. Milk is the largest crop on this planet and there is a strong need for technology interventions, especially in the emerging markets where the yield per animal is low, traceability is inadequate and quality is not up to the mark. Digitization of the Agri-Dairy supply chain in the emerging markets is where we help unlock unprecedented value on a very large scale.
We digitize & optimise Milk Production, Milk Procurement & Coldchain Management through SmartMoo™ platform (Full Stack IoT solution) which helps dairy farmers and cooperatives maximize profits while minimizing effort. Currently, the SmartMoo™ platform & suite of apps touch over two billion liters of milk annually. SmartMoo™ IoT Platform is the first step towards creating measurable value for all stakeholders including farmers. It provides measurable data for cattle insurance. The SmartMoo™ Cloud is capable of supporting data arising out of tens of millions of liters of milk through the milk production, procurement and cold chain flow across millions of farmers.
Stellapps’ SmartMoo™ IoT platform acquires data via sensors that are embedded in milking systems, animal wearables, milk chilling equipment, and milk procurement peripherals. The data acquired is transmitted to the Stellapps SmartMoo™ Big Data Cloud Service Delivery Platform (SDP) where the Stellapps SmartMoo™ suite of applications analyze and crunch the received data before forwarding the analytics & data science outcome to various stakeholders over low-end and smart mobile devices. The patent-pending hardware and software is designed to scale horizontally across other industry verticals.
