Las Vegas/Amsterdam, Jan. 8th 2018 – Starting today, the smart home app Triggi will continue under the name Olisto. After two years of international growth, it is time to continue with an accessible name that better fits our ambition to connect everything with everything.
Back in 2016, we launched our service an an app that connects smart devices, digital services and your favourite apps, and have them work together following your rules. With our service, one device could trigger another for some action. We launched our app under the name Triggi, with a slight wink to tricky, tricking something into working for you.
2 years have passed. Our app is in use by over 20 000 people, and this number is growing rapidly. We have won awards with our app. Manufacturers of smart devices and services are connecting their systems to us. We generate revenue, and we recently closed a funding round, to enter a new phase.
With this new phase, we say “Goodbye” to our name Triggi. Many felt that this name was somewhat technical or geeky, whilst we strive to simplify complicated technology and make it accessible to a large public. The wink to tricky has been nice, but something which is tricky, is not always positive. But more importantly, our ambition goes beyond connecting smart devices. We would also like to connect digital services and have them work together.
With the start of a new year, we choose to use a new name:
Triggi becomes Olisto
We feel that Olisto is a fresh and open name, that better suits our ambition to connect everything with every thing.
In the coming period, we will change our name. We will rename our app, our website will become olisto.com, our email addresses will change. But we won’t change our team, our product, and our vision to develop the hyperlink of the 21st century.
Olisto – Linking your life, your products, your rules
