EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. --(Business Wire)--
Access Technologies has received a 2014 M2M Evolution Business
Impact Award from TMC (News - Alert) and Crossfire Media for its ATEK Service Platform.
The ATEK Service Platform combines The
Social Machine® by Etherios with TankScan™,
allowing ATEK technical support personnel to remotely monitor TankScan
TSM8000 wireless tank level sensors and provide proactive customer
service. The award was announced during the Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
Evolution Conference & Expo, held Aug. 11-15 in Las Vegas.
The M2M Evolution Business Impact Awards recognize a select group of
companies and business leaders who have successfully leveraged M2M
and/or the Internet of Things (IoT) to solve a business issue, launch a
new service or create a revenue opportunity.
"This award promotes the importance of developing M2M solutions that
help organizations reduce costs, improve operational efficiency and
drive profitability," said Sherri McDaniel, president of ATEK Access
Technologies. "The ATEK Service Platform does all three by allowing us
to monitor the health of our wireless tank monitoring systems remotely
and identify and address concerns before they become problems. We are
honored to receive this award at one of the industry's leading M2M
By utilizing The
Social Machine® by Etherios, a solution that seamlessly connects
devices into core business processes on the Salesforce Platform,
TankScan technicians can more efficiently and accurately monitor the
TankScan TSM8000 with real-time predictive information on the status of
every deployed device.
The TankScan TSM8000 is a wireless tank level monitoring solution that
provides remote access to liquid tank data from anywhere an Ethernet or
cellular connection is available. The ATEK Service Platform allows ATEK
technical support personnel to monitor a dashboard within Salesforce.com (News - Alert)
that provides alerts when any device does something outside of a set of
pre-defined parameters. Technical support personnel can then easily
generate a case within Salesforce.com and proactively follow-up with
customers about their cellular data usage or ship them a new battery,
The Social Machine by Etherios helps organizations transform raw machine
data into actionable business information. Products such as TankScan can
automatically inform a support organization before they break down. With
innovations made possible by The Social Machine, organizations can
listen to their connected products and create new levels of internal
collaboration, offer enhanced customer service and generate new sources
of productivity gain.
