Q: Can you give us insight into your products?
A: Our mini PCs and mini PC sticks are designed to be high-quality computers that are small and fanless. The small form factor makes our computers more versatile and practical than standard bulky computers for the everyday user. The fanless technology provides longer product life and silent running. We also make it a point to build our devices to be fully-functional yet simple enough for one to use it in whatever they need it for. Be it for simple computing like surfing the web and checking emails, to more complex business and industrial applications, like running automated machines in factories, kiosks and more. We’ve also seen some unique applications of our devices, with businesses using them to power home devices like smart washing machines and dryers, and smart refrigerators, to MSPs using them as a replacement to thin clients, and even robotic engineers using them to power interactive electronics.
Q: Why is now the time for a technology solution like Azulle?
A: The computer world has been evolving through the years, and we felt it is important to continue the drive of innovation and pioneer the next generation of computing. With the rise of technology and its integration in our everyday life, it is important for solutions that are able to help simplify automations and the connectivity of systems.
Q: What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in launching your business and how did you overcome it?
A: The biggest challenge we’ve faced is being a small tech company having to compete with giants like Dell and Intel in the market, which have major brand recognition, large budgets and consumer loyalty. To overcome this challenge we’ve focused on listening to customer feedback at a micro-level, and using it to develop our technology based on the real needs of people and meeting them through high-quality products. We also made it a point to provide local U.S-based customer service and tech support. We have seen steady success because our consumers are happy receiving reliable product services and quality devices.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Our current focus is to grow into providing solutions to businesses across varying industries that can benefit from our devices. These industries include the education sector, the hospitality industry, government facilities and more. We also are focusing on IoT for both businesses and everyday consumers to continue developing and pioneering the future of technology with smart solutions. As we continue to grow, we hope to continue expanding our team with like-minded people who are as passionate as we are about technology and innovation.
