Stellenbosch-based EMSS Group has invested in mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) app company, Polymorph.

"Our experience in IoT app development, UX and UI complements the hardware and software expertise of the EMSS Group of companies and enables us to develop new products quicker and at lower risk. We look forward to exploring the possibilities of our combined expertise in the IoT and engineering fields," says Richard Barry, CEO, Polymorph.

EMSS was founded in 1994 as an antenna engineering company providing simulation software technology to the international market, including companies such as NASA, Boeing and DaimlerChrysler, as well as field-sense technology to mobile network operators.

EMSS Antennas, one of the companies in the group, supplies antenna technology to the MeerKAT radio astronomy project, and is an integral part of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) development.

"The deal brings together an established engineering company and a youthful start-up, and fits perfectly into our vision for the development of new hardware and software product lines. In addition, it fast-tracks our entry into the IoT industry by at least three to four years," says Frans Meyer, Co-founder and Group Director, EMSS.

Polymorph develops mobile and IoT apps for a range of blue-chip clients including Barclays, Capitec, Shoprite and HealthQ Technologies.

According to Meyer, the EMSS Group has invested more than R50million in companies and internal projects over the past few years, including enterprise mobility specialists Honeybee and radio frequency and microwave electronic design firm ETSE Electronics.
