The new investment will be used to continue scaling the company’s go-to-market capacity and make key investments in technology in order to advance Fiix from an essential maintenance tool to a comprehensive maintenance platform. Specifically, the capital will enable Fiix to explore new technological trends, including AI, IoT and predictive maintenance capabilities in order to better address evolving market needs. “We have seen unprecedented changes in technology and massive global competition force operations to change, which has put pressure on maintenance teams to evolve. At Fiix, our primary goal is to partner with our customers to help them navigate this evolution through digital transformation.
