Introduction to Mumbli
Starting out with a bold ambition, Mumbli set out in 2018 to tackle the second most harmful environmental health issue after air pollution and to make hearing wellness a mainstream conversation. Mumbli are a hearing wellness platform who uses proprietary IoT to make public spaces more audio inclusive for people who are noise sensitive. Mumbli’s ingenious “score,” a complex metric that assigns a noise rating to any space across eight key metrics. This data empowers people with hearing sensitivities and noise-conscious businesses alike to make informed choices about their environment. Mumbli have a small team but are collaborating with the World Hearing Forum, WHO and are involved in activities across 12 cities in the UK and U.S. which is growing year on year.
Facing the Challenge: Manual Calculations, Slow Progress for Mumbli
Mumbli’s noise pollution score, made up of eight measurements, was initially calculated manually, which was proving not to be efficient. This initial method was holding them back from reaching their full potential. Mumbli sought assistance from Devoteam to automate the behind-the-scenes setup and scoring system, setting them up for a smoother, more successful future in the world of quiet spaces.
Partnering with Devoteam: Expertise Meets Innovation
Devoteam brought their expertise to the table, with Agon identifying Mumbli’s challenges as opportunities, understanding their passion for quieter spaces. Teaming up with Rik, Data Architect, they set out to automate score generation using Mumbli’s Google startup credits. They seamlessly connected Mumbli’s data to Looker and BigQuery ensuring that Mumbli had real-time, accurate data flow, eliminating the need for manual calculations.
Devoteam understood Mumbli’s limited Google credits and meticulously customised the solution to fit their budget, ensuring maximum value. The result? A streamlined, automated scoring system delivered within a tight timeframe, just in time for Mumbli’s critical deadline, World Hearing Day 2023!
Harvesting Early Success: From Scores to Success Stories
The impact was immediate and profound. Mumbli’s confidence in their score soared. No longer burdened by manual calculations, they could confidently present their data to industry experts and potential clients. The score became a badge of honour, a testament to Mumbli’s scientific rigour and commitment to hearing wellness.
But the numbers tell an even more compelling story. Mumbli, initially aiming for five customer on-boardings, smashed their target, welcoming prestigious institutions like the Institute of Technology and Engineering into their fold. This success unlocked a staggering £15 million ARR pipeline in the UK alone, a springboard for future revenue growth and global expansion.
Embracing the Future: AI and Beyond
As Mumbli sets its sights on the future, the partnership with Devoteam continues. Marion hinted at a proof of concept development of an AI-powered recommendation engine aimed at the consumer market. With Devoteam’s proven expertise in AI & Machine Learning, this would help Mumbli to further solidify their commitment to creating a world where hearing wellness is not a luxury, but a right.
Conclusion: A Symphony of Success
The Mumbli and Devoteam story is a powerful testament to the synergy created when innovation meets expertise. It’s a beacon of hope in the fight against noise pollution. Proving that even the smallest startups, with the right partners, can make a big noise – in the quietest way possible.
