Numerex Receives the Prestigious 2015 IoT Evolution "Battle of the Platforms" Award

ATLANTA, Sept. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Numerex Corp (NASDAQ:NMRX) announced today that it was recently honored with the 2015 IoT Evolution Battle of the Platforms “Best Overall Platform” Award from TMC and Crossfire Media for its nxFAST offering. Numerex showcased their nxFAST Industrial IoT platform to a panel of judges and a live audience at the IoT Evolution Expo in Las Vegas last month, competing against eight other companies in order to win this honor. For the second time in as many years, Numerex won the “Best Overall Platform” award—considered to be the highest industry honor awarded to a provider of IoT platforms.

The versatile nxFAST platform is a cornerstone of the Numerex solution set, enabling widespread, rapid deployment of IoT (Internet of Things) solutions in nearly any industrial or commercial area of business. Leveraging Numerex’s multiple competencies, devices, and services, the nxFAST Industrial IoT platform quickly yields new insights that enable customers to make significantly better business operating decisions. Ultimately, that capability leads to an increase in their profitability.

“It is a great honor to be awarded the ‘Best Overall Platform’ award for the second year in a row,” said Marc Zionts, Chairman and CEO of Numerex. “The nxFAST platform provides the building blocks for large-scale implementations focused on increasing productivity, efficiency, and operational effectiveness.  We continue to receive a tremendous positive response from customers who are choosing Numerex because of our ‘one-stop-shop’ approach that allows them to harness the power of the Industrial IoT in their businesses.”

“Being the Battle of the Platforms Best Overall Platform winner means that not only is Numerex a leader in the space, but they have come of age at a time when the exploding industry is eager for IoT solutions,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, IoT Evolution. “Whatever stage a company is in on the path to its industrial IoT implementation, that company would benefit from speaking with the experts at Numerex.”

The Battle of the Platforms winners will be featured in the Fourth Quarter issue of IoT Evolution Magazine, as well as in the IoT eNewsletter and website.
