Samsara was founded in 2015 with the mission to increase the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of the operations that power the global economy. Co-founders Sanjit Biswas and John Bicket saw the massive impact that cloud computing and AI had on both consumer and enterprise businesses over the past decade. They sought to drive similar digital transformation for organizations with physical operations that have historically been underserved by technology, even though they represent a massive market opportunity of over 40% of U.S. GDP.
Samsara is the pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, which allows organizations that depend on physical operations to harness IoT data to develop actionable business insights and improve those operations. This is often reflected in meaningful cost savings, improved workplace safety, and superior end-customer experience. Samsara’s platform allows organizations to manage their entire operations—from vehicle fleets, to equipment, to worksites—in one place, enabling a more holistic view and meaningful business impact.
Today, the Samsara Connected Operations Cloud serves more than 20,000 customers across a wide range of industries including transportation, wholesale and retail trade, construction, field services, logistics, utilities and energy, government, healthcare and education, manufacturing, and food and beverage. Samsara has raised a total of $930 million in funding.
