Northampton, MA, January 4th, 2020 – MachineMetrics, a leading data analytics platform for manufacturers, announced today that it has been selected as winner of the 2020 “Smart Manufacturing Company of the Year” award from IoT Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.
This year’s program attracted more than 3,700 nominations from companies all over the world. All nominations were reviewed and evaluated by an independent panel of experts within IoT industry, with the highest scored nomination selected as winner for each category. Other winners included Apple, Dell, Bosch, Rockwell Automation, and Emerson.
“Right now, hundreds of manufacturers have connected thousands of machines to MachineMetrics across global factories,” says Bill Bither, CEO and Co-founder of MachineMetrics, “Our platform is enabling these companies to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time to improve their machine performance and productivity, increase their capacity utilization and ultimately win more business to remain globally competitive. We are proud to be developing the future of manufacturing alongside them.”
Roughly 50% of US manufacturers admit to not having a systematic roadmap or toolbox for easy rollout of digital manufacturing solutions, and over 15% of all US manufacturers identify a lack of knowledge about suitable providers as their biggest obstacle. Because no standard roadmap for digital manufacturing exists, many are often uncertain around where to start and what foundational capabilities are required to succeed.
“The benefits of digital disruption that Internet-of-Things technology implementations deliver are perhaps the most promising in the industrial and manufacturing space,” said James Johnson, managing director, IoT Breakthrough. “MachineMetrics stood out in the Industrial IoT category with a compelling smart manufacturing solution that delivers tangible results in significant productivity increases. We congratulate MachineMetrics on their growth and progress in 2019 and we look forward to seeing continued progress throughout 2020. We are thrilled to recognize MachineMetrics as 2020 IoT Breakthrough Award winner.”
