i3G Introduces New Tools for the i-tank(TM) Tank-Monitoring Solution
Solution Enabled by Numerex(R) Provides Additional Customer Benefits
ATLANTA, April 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Numerex (Nasdaq:NMRX), announced
today that i3G, a provider of bulk-liquid tank monitoring solutions, recently
added "Optimizer" and "Tank Management" tools to its core "i-tank" offering.
Customers deploying i3G's i-tank solution now can utilize the "Optimizer"
functionality to manage their orders within the application to ensure easy and
efficient grouping by product type, order number and shipment. This new
feature facilitates the handoff of order details to loading and distribution
operations personnel ensuring accuracy and optimizing all aspects of order
fulfillment. The new "Tank Management" tool enables customers to review
delivery data for a given route, to group the shipment by product type for a
specified time period, and to use exception-based rules to optimize
distribution planning without risking stock-outs. The i-tank solution—based on
and enabled by Numerex FAST^®, a cloud-based, highly scalable, horizontal
service delivery platform—is considered by many to be the leader in affordable
and reliable tank monitoring.
Numerex and i3G worked together to co-develop a product offering that
addressed a real market challenge. Bulk-liquid distributors needed to overcome
the inefficiencies associated with existing manual methods to track, monitor,
and manage liquid storage tanks. The industry needed a wireless, non-intrusive
solution that would give customers the ability to determine when to refill the
tanks. To solve that challenge, Numerex created an M2M, turnkey solution for
i3G. The system remotely communicates real-time visibility of fill levels to
help businesses enhance operational efficiencies, reduce costs, save time, and
increase product security. The i3G solution reduces the costs of bulk delivery
of liquids by eliminating unnecessary field visits, reducing the number of
miles driven by the tanker fleet, eliminating emergency deliveries, and
decreasing manpower hours and fuel consumption. Since its introduction, the
i3G solution has been deployed to monitor thousands of tanks at delivery
depots, oil change centers, manufacturing facilities, and service dealerships
"The i3G i-tank remote tank monitoring system is the most cost effective and
flexible solution offered in today's market. It is easy to install, easy to
use and easy to scale. With the Numerex FAST platform, we have a unique
solution that provides a sustainable competitive advantage to our customers.
The new Optimizer and Tank Management tools deliver enhanced value to an
industry increasingly focused on making deliveries as efficient as possible.
We appreciate Numerex's strong support over the years and their role in making
the i-tank solution the success that it is," said Mike Barcum, cofounder of
Scott Wiley, SVP of Marketing and Product Management for Numerex, commented,
"Using i3G's unique and innovative technology solutions, Numerex was able to
develop and market a specialized product that meets a critical customer need,
providing a solution for a vertical market in the area of Supply Chain—an area
of expertise for Numerex and a key strategic point of focus. Best of all, we
were able to do it in a fraction of the time that it would normally take to
develop it. We did that by leveraging FAST, our horizontal service delivery
platform that is complemented by an intelligent, web-based management portal.
The versatility of that platform continues to be proven out in multiple
industries and applications."
