"Most of the asset-heavy industries constantly generate operational data which can drive efficiency. Starting as a no-code operations management platform, we envision Grid as the essential operational layer that brings together people and device data to create ESG-focused operations. We are delighted with this partnership and aim to use it to expand our operations further," said Udit Poddar, CEO and co-founder, Grid.

The company plans to launch a marketplace for apps for the operational management built in collaboration with industry experts.
