About Stellapps

Stellapps is an end-to-end dairy technology solutions company.

Started in the year 2011, it is the first of its kind in India. We produce and procure comprehensive farm optimization and monitoring support, which helps dairy farmers and cooperatives maximize profits while minimizing effort. Our innovative applications and state-of-the-art mechanization tools leverage Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cloud, Mobility, and Data Analytics to improve Agri- supply chain parameters, including milk production, milk procurement, cold chain, animal insurance and farmer payments. Our SmartMoo™ IoT router and in-premise IoT Controller acquire data via sensors that are embedded in Milking Systems, Animal Wearables, Milk Chilling Equipment & Milk Procurement Peripherals, and transmit the same to the Stellapps SmartMoo™ Big Data Cloud Service Delivery Platform (SDP) where the SmartMoo™ suite of applications analyse and crunch the received data before disseminating the Analytics & Data Science outcome to various stakeholders over low-end and smart mobile devices. The patent pending hardware and software is designed to scale horizontally across other industry verticals. The SmartMoo™ Cloud is capable of supporting data arising out of tens of millions of liters of milk through the milk production, procurement and cold chain flow across millions of farmers.
