UIB’s 2017 in review

UIB’s Year in Review

Hello from UIB,

What better way to usher in 2018 then to ask some of UIB’s team members to share their most memorable moments with you from 2017. Among the awards, events, and interviews, the common theme is the excitement all of us get from working with UIB. Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year from the entire UIB team!

“It was in our November Sales Meeting when I met many of the UIB team members in person for the first time, I knew instantly that we would succeed. I could see first-hand how our passion, diversity, flexibility, and commitment brought all of these intelligent individuals together to form an unstoppable team.”

“My most memorable moments in 2017 were participating in SAP’s Singapore and NYC CEO Summits. Closed to the public and the media, CEOs came together to raise their most critical concerns and answer their hardest questions about business and life, resulting in lasting friendships. Host and SAP CEO Bill McDermott exemplifies a leader who leads by the heart. And yes, it was humbling to get to meet former U.S. President Barack Obama and former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.”

“The 2017 moment that stands out for me happened in Hanover, Germany, back in March at CeBIT. Right in the middle of the chaos and commotion of the trade show floor in the massive IoT hall, I sat down with Reuters’ Matt Gooderick to record a segment for his popular show FUTUREPROOF.”

“We began working with a Digital Health company in China during 2017, so I had the opportunity to showcase our Smart Health Elder-Care solution at an expo and visit China for the first time. I was really struck by people’s dedication and love for their country. While we focus on technology, it was the people I met in China that made the trip meaningful.”

“After many years with UIB, I am still amazed by how our professional diversity and company culture play such a large role in our success. In Singapore recently, I casually met up with an old classmate of my son. That meeting led to UIB’s newest European partner!”

Albrecht Buchner, Board Member


“My most memorable UIB moment of 2017 was controlling a Bosch smart camera with WhatsApp text and voice messages as part of our project for the third cohort of the Dubai Future Accelerators program in Dubai, UAE and presenting it to UAE Minister for AI.”

Gulraiz Khalid, Director MarCom and PR


“Before joining UIB, I had a fear of public speaking, but after speaking at different IoT events in Malaysia, Vietnam, and Indonesia, I have grown to like the stage and the opportunity to share our amazing technology with the world. My favorite moment from 2017 was being a moderator at CommunicAsia in May.”

Nush Khan, Key Account Manager


“It was fantastic to see the entire team working in project teams, seeing everyone pull together like the pieces of a puzzle to achieve bigger goals this year. My most memorable moment was when our interactive demo website, demo.unifiedinbox.com, received the 2017 Webby Award for Website Features and Design.”

Carsten Czech, Head of Design


“My favorite moment from 2017 was hosting the first-ever IoT Day event in El Salvador in cooperation with HackerSpace, InnBox, and FabLab. Along with interesting interactive demonstrations, we organized a series of four talks about distributed intelligence, IoT basics, digital manufacturing, and innovation in IoT.”
