Ivanti Wavelink recently announced that it has acquired an industrial internet of things (IIoT) platform owned by the WIIO Group, one of the company’s innovative technology and channel partners. According to Ivanti, the technology will further enable and secure the supply chain of the future. The acquisition will benefit Ivanti’s customers through the following:
- Get a 360-degree view of their IIoT equipment
- Proactively identify and remediate issues
- Build scalable applications that drive operational efficiency.
The future of supply chains
Today, modern warehouses and distribution centers feature state-of-the-art smart devices, including smart conveyors, sensors, cameras, robots, and cobots. The interconnections between all these devices and technologies can be complex, costly, and even risky.
Ivanti Wavelink’s customers will be able to easily cross-connect applications with new systems with a low technical gap. In addition, they will be able to automate their IIoT hardware and warehouse processes to optimize workflow operations at a rapid pace.
Clients across industrial verticals will benefit from real-time intelligence into the health of their equipment, enabling them to proactively detect and auto-remediate vulnerabilities. Ivanti’s customers will also be able to create low code/no-code applications that automate or enhance many of their processes and deliver completely new capabilities.
Most importantly, the solution will allow customers to add and replace technology layers without impacting the chain of events in place. Clients will be able to integrate these innovative IIoT applications into their existing operations easily and seamlessly, driving performance improvements and operational efficiency. The platform helps them collect data for blockchain strategy, facilitates predictive analysis, and allows the users to make better and more informed decisions.
Enhanced growth across verticals
“There is a growing demand by enterprises across all verticals to ensure that their supply chain operations are at peak 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 while improving end-user experiences and enhancing productivity. It’s an exciting time to be entering the IIoT market, and this acquisition allows us to become leaders in the IIoT business and transform our customers’ businesses.”
“The powerful IIoT framework combined with Ivanti Neurons will enable organizations to quickly and seamlessly modernize their operations while reducing the risk of breaches,” said Fabien Dupuis, CEO of WIIO. “With real-time actionable intelligence into their supply chain operations and predictive analysis, customers will be able to drive performance improvements by integrating IIoT sensors and automation technologies in astonishing ways.”
“To support our growth and digital transformation, we turned to the innovative, scalable, simple, and efficient IIoT solution,” said Mathieu Barthet, Chief Transformation Officer at General Logistics Systems (GLS) France. “The improved traceability of parcel shipments, combined with simplified use of information collected, has ensured greater efficiency in our operational decision-making. I’m confident that the combination of the IIoT platform and Ivanti Neurons will continue to meet the challenges and strategic ambitions of GLS France, and help us increase the quality of our nationwide transportation operations.”
As companies like Ivanti and WIIO continue to collaborate and find solutions, we can definitely predict better decision-making, a boost in overall efficiency–and a rise in smarter supply chains.
