MachineMetrics, provider of manufacturing’s first Industrial IoT Platform for machines, today announced the formation of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) partner ecosystem. The program is designed to drive collaboration and innovation around MachineMetrics’ unique Industrial IoT platform to improve machine performance, enhance legacy manufacturing processes, and drive new revenue streams and business models related to machines.
The MachineMetrics IIoT Partner Ecysostem is powering a range of services and enabling complete end-to-end solutions and continuous value creation for both discrete manufacturing customers and participating partners, and includes a number of respected industry leaders like Amazon Web Services, Hurco, Tsugami, SECO Tools, Saint Gobain, and McKinsey and Company
“Our partners are key to the continued success of MachineMetrics and our customers,” said Bill Bither, MachineMetrics CEO and Co-Founder, “With an ecosystem of partners that complement and supplement our industry-leading platform, we extend and accelerate our value proposition, driving new and continuous value for our joint customers as well as our partners."
The MachineMetrics Platform is extensible at multiple levels including at the edge, via API access to data in the cloud, and through their operator interface. This provides manufacturing customers and partners the opportunity to leverage their deep domain expertise to add their own unique IP to the platform and optimize the value created for their mutual data consumers. For example, machine tool builders and component providers are now able to provide advanced analytics, custom micro-services, custom work instructions, and preventative maintenance plans optimized for their customers all through MachineMetrics’ scalable, vertically integrated cloud platform.
"By analyzing data output from machine tools, we can deploy our technical experts to work closely with our customers to identify bottlenecks and other issues that lead to extended machine downtime," said Rob Keenan, President of Seco Tools North America, "MachineMetrics is the toolbox that enables Seco to take cost out of our customer's operation while improving their productivity.”
As part of the program, partners receive a wide range of training, support, and promotional marketing services to help grow their business and generate value for their shared discrete manufacturing customer base. MachineMetrics has empowered a wide range of consulting services, in addition to system integration, solution development, complementary hardware and software, and value-added reseller opportunities.
“The partner program builds on the successful foundation of partners who have leveraged MachineMetrics over the last three years to grow their business and create value for customers,” stated Dave Westrom, MachineMetrics VP Business Development. “Formalizing the program will also foster partner collaboration and attract new partners as MachineMetrics scales its business across new regions and markets.”
“Tsugami/Rem Sales is thrilled to partner with MachineMetrics, bringing cutting edge, disruptive technology directly into our end-users’ businesses,” explained Michael Mugno, President, Tsugami/Rem Sales. “The addition of MachineMetrics to our Swiss-turn machine platform packages allows users to collect data on machine health, production status, downtime, and so much more that they may never have known existed—bettering businesses across the industry.”
