The company states on its website that the goal of the firm and its technology is to “drive plant reliability and remove those daily machine health concerns which interrupt operations and impact the bottom line.”

As far back as 2015, company co-founder Justin Rothwell described the firm’s Internet-of-Things technology as a “check engine light for big machines.”  Rothwell completed a Q&A about ProAxion and its technology with WRAL TechWire following the company’s receipt of the NC IDEA grant.
