How it Works
Companies with IoT products and services can create a profile, list their offerings, and receive leads through Ioterra. There is no cost to set up a basic account, but there are paid subscription options to receive greater lead flow and have access to visitor analytics and insights. Contact Ioterra sales to discuss setting up a profile for your company.
What comes with my company profile?
With a company profile, you will be integrated into Ioterra’s Find IoT Expert and Get Development Bids tools and will receive project opportunities that are related to your areas of experience. If you are on a subscription tier you will have access to analytics for the ecosystem and your profile. Additionally you will be eligible to exhibit at Ioterra conferences and events.
What are opportunities?
Opportunities are real projects in need of development or consulting support. Opportunities occur when a potential customer has matched to you based on their project needs. You will receive a description of the project opportunity and a summary of the customer. After reviewing the opportunity details, you choose if you want to connect to the potential customer. Opportunities are not guaranteed jobs. It’s up to you to win the work after you get the opportunity.
What happens if a potential customer from an opportunity never responds?
You will only be charged if the customer is responsive. If you accept an opportunity and then never hear from the customer that will be classified as a non-responsive opportunity and you will not be billed.
Can I set automatic acceptance parameters to I don’t have to manually check each opportunity?
Yes, you can set the maximum amount you are willing to pay on any given opportunity (or over any given period) based on parameters such as company size, project stage, project industry, etc. When opportunity come through that meet your criteria you will automatically accept these leads. If an opportunity comes through that is above your automatic acceptance threshold you will still have the opportunity to review and manually accept it, should you wish.
How many companies in Ioterra can purchase one opportunity ?
Up to three Ioterra companies can purchase an opportunity. The first three companies to accept the opportunity will be connected. Some companies have set up automatic acceptance criteria in the event that opportunities are under a certain dollar amount. If more than three companies automatically accept the lead, then the three that have the highest Ioterra subject score points related to the project needs will be connected.
How are opportunity prices calculated?
Opportunity prices vary by the type, scope, start date, and company details of a potential customer’s request. We know the value of every job is different, and we aim to price the opportunities to reflect that. Your sales representative can provide current and average pricing for the types of leads you’ll receive.
What can I do if the opportunities I’m receiving aren’t a good fit?
If you find that the leads you’re getting aren’t relevant to you or the work you do, you can change your opportunity preferences online — or by contacting our customer service team. You can also participate in the Ioterra community in subjects related to your key areas of interest to increase your Ioterra subject score points which will allow you to receive more awareness and leads in that subject.
Why do customers trust Ioterra?
The IoT sector in specific, and the product development landscape in general, contains a lot of noise. Ioterra provides an intuitive approach for product developers to rapidly get answers to critical questions and meet experts that can help them with their projects. Ioterra does not have a “angle” – we aren’t motivated to convince a customer to buy this part or that service. We just want more product developers to reach the finish line successfully. Customers trust Ioterra because of its objectivity, transparency, and ease-of-use.

Our Word For It
I joined the Ioterra platform in December 2020 and got matched with a client soon thereafter. The project signoff was quick and smooth as there was a trust factor between us and the client due to Ioterra.

We started working with Ioterra in 2019 as a member of their services platform. This is a great solution for matching manufacturers with prospective clients. The Ioterra team has helped us gain a better understanding of the IoT landscape. We're consistently impressed with their depth of knowledge related to design, engineering, and manufacturing.
