PGA M2M Integrates TankVista to Deliver Clients Cloud-Based, Plug-And-Play Tank Monitoring Solution
New solution featuring TankVista from New Boundary Technologies provides PGA M2M clients hard ROI in less than one year, immediate productivity gains and improved worker safety
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 7, 2011 — New Boundary Technologies® today announced PGA M2M, Inc., a leading reseller, systems integrator and services provider dedicated to the wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) and mobile work force automation marketplace, has integrated the company’s TankVista™ solution and is now reselling its own cloud-based, plug-and-play remote tank monitoring solution.
TankVista from New Boundary Technologies is a web-based service that takes raw data from tank sensors and delivers online access to metrics such as tank levels, temperature, pressure and humidity from any computer with an Internet connection. TankVista’s intuitive, easy-to-use interface features a built-in mapping tool that shows tank locations and conditions to streamline tank servicing and inventory management. Tank managers can also use TankVista to readily share data throughout an organization – including operations, sales and finance – regardless of retail or regional location.
Tank monitoring across multiple locations is largely inefficient, manual, unsafe and inaccurate, and most automated solutions require expensive customized solutions to take raw tank sensor data and translate it into actionable information, graphics and maps.
“With our new TankVista-based solution, we can deliver clients instant access to the information they need to better manage their storage tanks – eliminating manual processes, improving worker safety and increasing product margins,” said Peter Stunden, president of PGA M2M. “Companies will see immediate productivity and efficiency gains, and hard ROI in less than one year. New Boundary Technologies and TankVista put PGA M2M and our customers in complete control over remote tank monitoring.”
New Boundary Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer Kim Pearson stresses the importance of TankVista’s hosted, plug-and-play service: “As a system integrator, the cloud-based nature of TankVista is critical; PGA M2M and its customers never have to worry about installing or updating software. We are also continuously enhancing TankVista, allowing companies to stay at the forefront of remote tank management and analysis. TankVista immediately helps PGA M2M and other system integrators and resellers define themselves as a clear-cut M2M tank monitoring pioneers.”
PGA M2M has already installed its new TankVista-driven solution with a leading North American fertilizer distributor. The fertilizer distributor rolled out the new solution in one of its 32 stores in a matter of weeks, not months, and quickly reduced health and safety risks, improved worker productivity and recorded instant and accurate tank level measurements with greater than 95 percent accuracy. The fertilizer distributor streamlined its inventory management and dramatically improved customer service – leading to additional retail location rollouts in the near future.
Additional TankVista Features
- Automatic email/cell phone alerts when tank conditions meet user-defined thresholds and require servicing.
- Advanced reporting features maintain tank condition history for operational analysis and regulatory compliance.
- End-to-end encryption and authentication technologies ensure continual data security.
- Open and highly scalable architecture creates seamless integration with other M2M technologies and does not limit the number of tanks that can be networked.
