Invigo was founded by a group of telecom engineers and business people that were frustrated by the poor quality and capabilities of device management software. Set up in 2004, the company now has over 100 clients in more than 70 countries and numbers some of the world's largest mobile phone networks as its customers. From its beginnings as a provider of flexible and affordable device management products, the company now offers a range of products to network owners and operators.

The same core group of founding executives work at the company to this day and continue to build on the global track record of the company.
