Our History

Hark was founded in 2016. You know the story, founders quit their job and work from the garage or basement. Hark didn’t start quite like that but wasn’t a million miles away. The original spark that set Hark alight was simple: make manual tasks easier.

We started in Life Sciences, winning our first customers, pharmaceutical companies; monitoring and reporting on sensor information, such as temperature, and providing a digital paper trail for scientists, asset operators and lab technicians. This is where our most popular features, like alerting and custom dashboards, stem from. We dabbled in manufacturing our own hardware for a while before we went all-in on software and started to develop our partner network.

In 2017, we onboarded several other life sciences customers and were also asked to apply our remote asset monitoring solutions to other industries, Energy and Retail. By the end of that year, we were monitoring and controlling Tesla batteries and also had our software deployed in supermarkets monitoring assets such as energy meters, lighting, bakery ovens and HVAC.

In 2018, our retail deployment developed and grew into a national UK & Ireland rollout for a top 4 supermarket. We also licenced out our technology for industrial manufacturers who were recognising the need to offer software solutions as part of their proposition. Hark’s work was also attracting attention from some of the large tech companies who we thankfully now call partners, we’re proud to be a Microsoft Gold Partner, a Dell Partner, Intel and Arm.

In 2019 we added innovation workshops with another top 4 retailer and also expanded our platforms capabilities from stores to depots, with new platform modules looking at occupancy and shrinkage. We also enabled connectivity for a few more assets along the way, notably Solar PV and cameras as part of machine vision.
