Westbase.io Celebrates 30 Years’ Successful Business

Westbase.io Celebrates 30 Years

Westbase.io is celebrating our 30th business anniversary so we take a look at what this means to the company and its customers.


30 years of networking innovation.

After 30 years in business, Westbase.io has supported and sold many different technologies. From serial to cellular, supporting M2M to the IoT, we have always kept a focus on the latest tech to deliver the flexibility, reliability and security that organisations need to connect their sites, people and assets.

Today we continue this, providing the advice, services and solutions that organisations need to be better connected.


From industrial to enterprise and back again.

Westbase.io has long served our industrial and utilities customer base, and continues to do so today, but we’ve also worked hard in recent years to extend the benefits of cellular networking to other distributed enterprise industries as well. Key projects we’re proud to have worked on include deploying in-vehicle networks for over 30 emergency services across Europe – enabling field EMS teams to easily access central systems, making their efforts more efficient and effective. We have also been lucky enough to work on some large scale failover deployments in the retail sector, equipping leading high street names with 4G LTE backup connectivity to keep their stores online.

Other exciting deployments have included connecting entire utility networks to track energy levels and minimise losses due to theft or leaks, delivering rapid connectivity to construction sites to get them online from day one, and connecting wide spread digital signage estates so they can be remotely updated and managed securely.


Supporting and investing in our channel.

Enabling our channel customers has always been at the centre of Westbase.io’s approach to business. Providing support across technical, sales, marketing, warehouse, logistics, and finance we work hard to deliver what our channel needs. Just a few short weeks ago we launched our all-new Westbase.io Partner Programme and BaseCamp online portal, formalising and extending this support for our key customers.


No longer just Westbase – introducing the Westbase Group.

Following the successful acquisitions of Control and MS Distribution in 2017, we expanded from being “just” Westbase to being a part of the Westbase Group of companies as well, opening up new services and products to our channel.

In 2018 the Westbase Group has gone from strength to strength and, as a part of it, Westbase.io can extend our channel’s capabilities further by providing access to software development and connectivity services, plus advanced support, via our sister company Control. We can also address fixed wireless, consumer and enterprise WiFi requirements through our sister company MS Distribution.


A thank you from our Managing Director, Sacha Kakad.

“I feel truly privileged to have been able to work with our wide assortment of customers, our industry-leading vendors, and our dedicated and talented team. I thank all of you for your contribution to our company successes, and it is a tribute to you that we are celebrating such a momentous anniversary.

While proud of our past I am also eager to see what the next chapter will bring for Westbase.io. We will continue to help organisations to embrace the latest disruptive technologies, and to get the very most out of their networking. I feel confident that the next thirty years will be even more exciting for us.”
