Factory Systèmes and Wirepas to accelerate the adoption of affordable industrial asset tracking and sensoring systems in France
Factory Systèmes, a specialist in the distribution of industrial hardware and software with over 25 years experience and more than 5,000 industrial customers in France, has signed a distribution agreement with Wirepas.
The distribution agreement will allow Factory Systèmes’ customers to easily purchase the Wirepas solution for location data from a trusted supplier. Factory Systèmes will make available the Wirepas Positioning Engine (“WPE”) to their customers. Coupled with their distribution of Wirepas Mesh enabled tags, from ELA Innovations, they provide a one stop shop for industrial customers wishing to benefit from the unique capabilities of Wirepas solutions for tracking and sensoring.
“We see strong demand in the French market for the unique capabilities of Wirepas Mesh, especially amongst our industrial customer base who see real value in the affordable real-time location data enabled by Wirepas location services. Working together with the Wirepas ecosystem to deliver tags from ELA Innovation we can service this demand as a trusted advisor to over 5,000 industrial customers.”
The Wirepas 5-5-5 promise for asset management is unique in providing real-time visibility of people and assets at an extremely affordable infrastructure price point as low as €0.05 per square meter per year. The fully battery-operated infrastructure offers lowest effort installation, removing expensive and complex cabling costs. The system delivers 5 minutes location reporting frequency and greater than 5 meters of accuracy with 5 years of battery life on both tags and infrastructure. It makes this solution fitting the sweet spot of most asset and people location and tracking use cases. The system can be easily integrated with existing solutions to add location data to any industrial application.
“We are delighted to welcome Factory Systèmes to the Wirepas ecosystem as a distributor to extend our reach in France.” says Sebastien Pellorce, Business and Ecosystem Development Director at Wirepas. “The Wirepas 5-5-5 promise, great tags from ELA Innovation and Factory Systèmes’ trusted advisor status makes for a winning combination to address the growing need for location data in industrial applications.”
