Our roots are located in the GIS business and, as its pioneers, we have developed and implemented GIS installations in the surveying sector, for local and state authorities, for energy suppliers and telecommunications companies.
At a later date, SBI began to provide geospatial solutions to agricultural issues by developing complex models for i.e. crop yield forecasts or site analysis, based on satellite data. Today, we are one of the market-leading service providers for satellite-based information and analysis products in the agricultural sector.
We are continuously expanding our expertise, working together with the best research institutions to push the cutting edge of technology forward. SBI’s R&D program is focused on implementing practical solutions with and for the benefit of our customers using the most innovative tools and scientific methods currently available.
As a result of our efforts and product diversifications, today we are proud to be one of the leading companies providing satellite-based solutions to a variety of business sectors such as agriculture and forestry, insurance, energy and infrastructure and financial industry.
We owe this to our interdisciplinary and international team of SBI, which comprises satellite image specialists, agricultural engineers, geo-information scientists, hydrologists, forest engineers, geologists, mathematicians and physicists, thus ensures in-depth expertise and know-how. This unique confluence of skills is geared towards finding a solution to every question and thus contributing to the economic success of our customers. The analyses and contributions of our management are highly appreciated.
Our toolbox consists of various technologies and methods, from traditional approaches up to artificial intelligence. For each task, we comb through our toolbox and select the most appropriate tool for each specific issue.
Our IT specialists provide our services via API, portals, web or app-based solutions.
In addition to the economic field of activity, SBI also faces up to its social responsibility. Equal opportunities for women and men, the multicultural background of our employees, and the coexistence of young and old are reality at SBI.
In close cooperation with universities, we support bachelor and master theses as well as internships.
