Business Challenges First

We start any effort by focusing on the business challenge, not the technical/data challenge. This applies whether we’re starting a big digital transformation initiative, or a simple, single pilot project. We have seen too many companies try to get data from machines for the sake of getting data, and then get themselves wrapped around the axel. We start at the top, then work our way down to the data and tech. 

Flexible and Scalable Solutions

With our open technology approach, we won’t sell you proprietary technology; only analysis and solutions that will work for you. Because of this focus, we continue to beat out major players with the value, capabilities, and flexibility of our solutions

Industry 4.0 and Data-Driven Manufacturing

Emerging technologies, cutting edge software, and an Agile approach for implementing real-time visibility into the plant floor. We beleive that manufacturers should strive to become data-driven and compete not on labor costs, but on innovation and quality.

More Value Through Less Complexity

Our approach to industrial projects, technologies, and expert team enable us to create a system highly tailored to you. We deliver everything you need to solve your specific business challenge, and nothing more. Because of this, our solutions are less complex, less expensive, and more valuable.

Unified Namespace

A unified namespace provides an industrial-focused structure for data in the central data hub. This is where all machines and systems publish and subscribe to the data. This creates one single version of the truth, eliminates silos of data, and enables everyone and everything to benefit from the same accurate, real-time data.
