Its solution is now in use by dozens of large industrial customers, including some who have invested in APERIO, to address the reliability of their operational data for optimizing performance and minimizing business risk.
APERIO's solution is designed to solve a wide range of operational data quality issues and has drawn a range of investors. "Improving the scale and quality of data is critical to the reliability of unattended facilities. APERIO's technology has the potential to help solve the data quality problem at scale," said Jim Gable, Vice President, Innovation and President of Technology Ventures at Chevron. "This is the latest investment from our Core Fund VII, which focuses on high-growth startups and breakthrough technologies that have the potential to improve Chevron's core oil and gas business performance as well as create new opportunities for growth. We welcome APERIO to the portfolio."
