Do you have questions about MachineMetrics, our Industrial IoT machine monitoring platform, manufacturing analytics, or just like saying hi in person? If yes, the good news is you'll have plenty of opportunities to meet us in person on our MachineMetrics Manufacturing Transformation Tour 2018. The objective of this Tour is not just to exhibit our revolutionary software platform but also to educate manufacturers on the opportunities created by digital manufacturing, IIoT, and data-driven business while answering the following key questions:

  • How to identify if a company is ready and capable for digital manufacturing
  • How to identify the digital tools necessary for measuring success
  • How to identify the assets and people necessary for implementing a digital manufacturing strategy
  • Defining actionable steps to build a roadmap to digital manufacturing and IIoT implementation

In 2018, we have scheduled some fantastic events all around the country (and will be adding more) so check out the first leg of our Tour's speaking engagements/exhibitions below and feel free to reach out beforehand to book a time to meet with our team while at the event!
