We created Applio because we believe in innovation

IoT is an exciting area where things are moving fast and technology is changing continuously. It is still mostly tech-savvy persons who build IoT-applications and solutions. We want to change that. Our goal is to make IoT as simple as possible. We put our experience and knowledge into the platform in order to hide all of the tricky technology stuff and leave all the fun for you to explore.
About us

Welcome to Applio

We created Applio because we believe in innovation. The Internet of Things (IoT) technology allows us to create new services that were not possible before. However, there are still some challenges limiting the adoption of IoT throughout the development community.

The idea behind Applio is to remove those limitations and allow new developers to access the IoT space and create amazing new and innovative services, that we could only dream about a couple of years ago

Our Idea

The vision and where it all started

Having spent years in this industry, setting up Gateway bridges, Network Servers, IoT Hubs, Payload Decoding Scripts, Service Buses etc. we asked ourselves repeatedly if there wasn’t an easier way.

Based on these challenges, we developed Applio, which is a brand new IoT platform, created by developers for developers. It features a full stack application platform, including gateway & device management, full API support and data storage. Allowing developers to focus on business logic and produce code that matters, instead of spending time on setting up and configure hardware and infrastructure.

The History of Applio


The Company was founded in Lund, Sweden, as Q2D (Quote to delivery). With the idea to simplify the delivery process of technical projects.


Signed agreements with international companies such as Tetra Pak, Alfa Laval and ABB.

Celtic project CyberWi, started creating the SenseSec platform (Applio Enterprise). LoRa technology with ElSys. Security Management with RiSE & Ericsson.


Celtic project CritiSec. Aim to enable wider usage of IoT in critical infrastructure. LoRa use cases with Kraftringen, Thyréns & Sensative. IETF/3GPP with Sony & RiSE.


Q2D becomes Applio and the Applio Free platform is launched
