Portfolio

Nuvotion primarily specialises in electronic, electro-mechanical and software solutions to real world problems, in industry and education.

Our industry experience as technicians, combined with post graduate studies in engineering, after having both returned to study as mature adults, has equipped us with a unique blend of skills. We design solutions with an aim to strike an optimum balance between cost effectiveness, time to market, and minimised maintenance.

We pride ourselves on our in-depth problem analysis. We go to great lengths to understand the fundamental issues for whatever the project may be. We believe that only by arming ourselves with a solid understanding of the problem, can we expect to arrive at the most appropriate solution.

Negotiating scope with open dialogue and transparency is how we operate. Communication is a key element of any agreement. We are adept in technical translation, from industry jargon to layperson terminology.

Some examples of projects we have worked on include:
