ManMakeMachine provides solutions for the tracking of assets and people to prevent theft and deceit.

They are real market makers. They manifest innovation into hardware - into the space of the internet of things.

Pavlo Phitidis, Business growth specialist

Listen to the full conversation below:

Located in Cape Town and Nairobi, ManMakeMachine is owned by Ian Duvenhage.

Their clients are mostly in the manufacturing, logistics, warehousing and mining industries.

Their monitoring devices allow them to track people and assets in a corporate value chain to enable businesses to make valuable decisions.

For example, they can monitor people that are working in a dangerous environment such as mining and alert them of any dangers to allow an opportunity to make a decision on whether to continue working or strategise accordingly.

Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis said it is important that Duvenhage get to work with the right kind of people because he is an idealist.

Pavlo also said that Duvenhage should focus his marketing attention on one or two sectors in order to achieve consistent revenue.

Duvenhage said that ManMakeMachine's next step is to grow its core engineering team to rapidly scale new solutions and to set up international sales.
