PTC today announced that Aridea Solutions, a provider of software and hardware systems that monitor environmental conditions, has successfully implemented the PTC ThingWorx technology and has begun accruing benefits from the deployment.
Aridea Solutions, headquartered in Charleston, West Virginia, offers a comprehensive suite of solutions that provide its customers in a variety of industries and agencies with real-time, remote access to weather, water, and air information for the purpose of lowering their compliance-related costs.
The company’s cloud based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions are marketed to the extractive, chemical, and utilities industries. These solutions are solar powered, and consist of sophisticated software, sensors, and, now, embedded PTC ThingWorx technology.
“When we founded Aridea Solutions, we envisioned a time when environmental parameters would be monitored in real-time and communicate with each other, machines, and people to help deliver better outcomes for our industries and the environment in which we live,” said BJ Evans, co-founder and managing director, Aridea Solutions. “That time is now – and it’s accomplished today with our suite of hardware and software that allows operators and executives the ability to monitor and control their remote and mobile assets from any internet connection. The PTC ThingWorx technology is the cornerstone of our offering.”
Aridea selected PTC ThingWorx several months ago after an exhaustive due diligence process. The implementation of the technology was completed in weeks. “Benefits accrue each day,” continued Mr. Evans.
“Today, PTC delivers a powerful IoT tech stack, comprised of a rapid application development platform, connectivity, analytics capabilities, augmented reality, and more,” stated Rob Gremley, Group President, The Technology Platform Group, PTC. “We are honored to have been selected by Aridea for such an important IoT initiative – and commit to our customer’s success.”
“PTC has emerged as an IoT powerhouse,” stated Stephanie Atkinson, CEO of Compass Intelligence. “Its big vision, robust tech stack, advancement through strategic acquisitions, and market dominance make the company a clear choice for any company with a need to capitalize on the Internet of Things and achieve improvements in efficiency, reductions in cost, and the evolution of new business models.”
