Simplified Internet of Things Solution for Smaller Manufacturers – Product News

US company C-Labs Corporation,an award-winning provider of software for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT), has launched Machine Monitor, a new product to provide operational awareness to machine operators, plant managers, and business leaders in manufacturing organisations.

According to a PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) survey, 65% of US manufacturers are not yet collecting or using IoT data to enhance their manufacturing operations, despite availability of the technology. In C-Labs' experience, this is especially true among smaller firms lacking IoT expertise and wanting "out-of-the-box" solutions that are safe, secure, and simple to set-up and use.

For smaller manufacturers and machine shops, C-Labs Machine Monitor simplifies the creation of industrial grade IoT solutions without side-stepping security. Machine Monitor is based on the award-winning Factory-Relay product available to larger companies.

"Smaller manufacturers told us they wanted the benefits that larger industrial companies were getting from remote and mobile access to live data, especially with older machines," said Chris Muench, CEO of C-Labs. "Machine Monitor provides visibility to machine state information from anywhere, anytime, on any device, facilitating efficient operations while protecting industrial equipment from cyberattacks."

C-Labs provides IoT software products that are scalable, secure, and simple to use. C-Labs is a Red Herring 2016 North America Top 100 award winner and was recognized by CIO Review as one of The 50 Most Promising IoT Solution Providers. The company is also a recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award.
