TAL LAKE CITY SALT- (TELE BUSINESS) -Ivanti Wavelink, the supply chain business unit of Ivanti, announced today that it has acquired an industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform owned by the WIIO Group, one of Ivanti Wavelink’s innovative technologies and channel partners based in Paris, France. This platform acquisition will enable customers to have a 360-degree view of their IIoT devices, proactively identify and repair issues, and build scalable applications that boost operational efficiency. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Ivanti Wavelink is taking technology to further enable and secure the supply chain of the future. Supply chains have evolved constantly. Today, modern warehouses and distribution centers feature modern smart devices, including smart conveyors, sensors, cameras, robots, and cobots. The connections between all of these devices and technologies can be complex, expensive, and sometimes dangerous. Through this acquisition, Ivanti Wavelink customers will be able to easily connect applications to new systems, with low technical gap and quickly automate their IIoT devices and warehouses to optimize workflow operations.
Customers across industrial verticals, including transportation and logistics, manufacturing, oil and gas, healthcare and retail, will benefit from real-time intelligence on the health of their equipment, enabling them to proactively detect and repair weaknesses. Customers will also be able to create low-code / no-code applications that automate or greatly enhance their processes, as well as offer entirely new capabilities. Most importantly, the high-level abstraction of the solution will allow customers to add and replace layers of technology without affecting the chain of events in the country. Customers will be able to integrate these innovative IIoT applications into their existing operations easily and smoothly, boosting performance improvements and operational efficiency. The platform increases customers’ willingness to make accurate decisions, helps them gather data on blockchain strategy, and facilitates predictive analytics.
““There is a growing demand from companies in all directions to ensure that their supply chain operations are at maximum efficiency,” said Brandon Black, vice president and general manager of Ivanti Wavelink. “We look forward to integrating our technologies and helping our customers further automate and secure their supply chain operations, improving end-user experiences and increasing productivity. It’s an exciting time to enter the IIoT market, and this acquisition allows us to become leaders in the IIoT business and transform our clients’ businesses. ”
