Boosting the economy while making it more sustainable

Turntide is a US-based company that reinvented the electric motor by creating an intelligent system to drive down energy consumption and operating costs.

Their motors are used in a variety of sectors, such as agriculture, transportation, building management, etc. As of today, over 134 thousand kWh of energy has been saved thanks to Turntide motors.

Intelligent software and hardware solutions for changing the world

Turntide motors are controlled electronically, which makes them more efficient and environment-friendly. Every building or vehicle using a Turntide motor has registered a more productive energy use while decreasing costs. Some of their clients have reported up to 80% in energy savings.

Turntide’s ultimate goal is to decrease the world’s carbon footprint, making sure businesses become more sustainable and productive. They are continuously developing new products and digital solutions to help users measure their efficiency and make greener decisions.

As a results-oriented business that is growing exponentially, Turntide relies on third-party providers to staff their teams and speed up their development roadmap. When selecting a new partner, Turntide looks for companies with a proven track record of hiring only the very best professionals.

Thanks to Octobot’s experience with rigorous selection criteria as well as a strong focus on employee training and development, they decided to work with us.

From data engineering to quality automation: collaborating on multiple fronts

From data engineering to quality automation: collaborating on multiple fronts

The first Turntide area we started supporting was Insights & Analytics. They focus on internal data analysis, checking metrics, and generating insights. Octobot's Data Engineer team collects and prepares high-quality data that later feeds Machine Learning models and provides insight to Turnide’s teams. Identifying broken motors before anyone reports a problem is just one of the ways this information helps Turntide.

We’ve also joined another Turntide department with the goal of developing automated testing processes for their systems. This Product Quality team aims to build an automation framework to test the motors automatically using virtual motor simulators and physical motor controllers. In this project, we implement Specification By Example, a methodology that allows a more objective, specific software development process.

Full stack developers from Octobot are also working to improve Turntide's system for setting up motors and tracking their performance. Besides, they’re working on their product migration from Angular to React in order to improve the user experience, modernize features, and solve issues that React can more easily tackle.

Our engineers are encouraged to propose and implement helpful practices, and collaborate with Turntide's team toward a common goal. Their expertise and empathy allow their voices to be heard, thus strengthening the growing camaraderie and teamwork.

We feel a connection to Turntide’s mission and are motivated by the idea of contributing to a better world. We envision more Octobot professionals joining Turntide's teams in the near future to support their mission.
