“It was a natural progression for us to add connectivity into our devices and embedded systems” said Executive Vice President of North American operations, Easen Ho, “and when we looked at the marketplace, we identified ThingWorx as being the premier platform… it really stands above all the other platforms in terms of maturity and partnership ecosystem, and that will open Vantron up to more opportunities.” Vantron’ s customers use a range of operating systems on their embedded systems, from Linux and Windows to Android, all of which will be enabled with ThingWorx, and be “ThingWorx Ready”. Access to the ThingWorx IoT Platform will be built into those systems, so that customers can easily integrate them, and have access to those devices. “That’s on the enablement side” said Ho, “but Vantron will be ready to provide turnkey application service for those customers looking for one-click access to the ThingWorx cloud.” The rapid application development capabilities of ThingWorx were evident from the start, with Vantron’s engineers adding connectivity and completing the ThingWorx integration within 2-3 weeks. But that rapid application development was only a part of the story. “Brand recognition, the robustness, and the available partner ecosystem all had an important role to play in selecting the ThingWorx platform” says Ho, “Now all these advantages will be made available to Vantron’s customers.” To get a free demo of ThingWorx 8: http://solutions.iotone.com/thingworx
