Wachter Named to 2018 CRN IoT Innovators List

Lenexa, KS – Wachter, Inc. today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Wachter with a 2018 IoT Innovators award. The second annual IoT Innovators list recognizes North American solution providers and systems integrators whose design and implementation of groundbreaking solutions place them at the forefront of the IoT era.

Wachter is recognized for its !NFOrmAgent solution, which provides scalable, affordable, results-driven edge analytics in industrial and manufacturing environments. !NFOrmAgent extracts data from disparate industrial processes, shapes that data into useable information, generates real-time KPI dashboards at the “shop floor” level, and distributes actionable reports to the “top floor” level.

“!NFOrmAgent is a game-changer,” says Daniel Alvarez, senior systems integrator with Wachter’s automation group. “It’s a highly-customizable, affordable solution that is generating rapid ROI for clients in vast industrial markets — from transportation and logistics to petrochemical and food and beverage.”

“With !NFOrmAgent, we’re understanding the processes, looking at ways to streamline that process, and make data-driven decisions to improve that process to make our clients more profitable,” said Matt Tyler, director of IoT at Wachter. “We tie multiple disparate networks, sensing technologies, and control systems together; bring those together into a common gateway; apply programming language to shape that data; then aggregate and visualize that data in real-time, on one single pane of glass.”

“CRN’s IoT Innovators List includes breakthrough leaders in the IT channel who are leading the way into the ever-growing, opportunity-rich age of IoT,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Each of these innovative companies has brought to market a complex and cutting-edge integration of platforms, software tools, and technologies to create unique Internet of Things solutions. Their remarkable IoT innovations are helping customers solve business challenges and move ahead of their competitors in this fast-paced age of digital transformation.”

The IoT Innovators list will be announced at the IoTConnex Virtual Conference ( on October 24th and featured on at
