Simplifying Asset Performance Management
Atonix Digital develops and offers a suite of software solutions to help businesses and utilities to boost efficiency, increase the accuracy of planning, and to improve day-to-day decision-making in an everchanging landscape. Recently, we profiled the firm and caught up with Matt Kirchner, director of product management and customer success, who provided us with a detailed glimpse into the innerworkings of the innovative solutions Atonix Digital provides to its clients.
Since its inception, Atonix Digital has provided its clients with digital insights by connecting the power of both math and data through a portfolio of products that help companies to simplify asset performance management. It’s products and solutions help by detecting emerging risks, enhancing efficiency, improving accuracy of planning and providing an easily justifiable return on investment. Atonix Digital is a software subsidiary of Black & Veatch.
Atonix Digital’s products and solutions are powered by ASSET360, a cloud-based data analytics platform that was purpose-built based on decades of experience in designing, building, and managing complex infrastructures. Matt begins by going into further detail about ASSET360 and the benefits clients receive when they use the solution. “Here at Atonix Digital, we understand how assets are integrated and work together as a system, and we apply these learnings in a variety of utility and industrial environments to boost asset performance management.
“ASSET360 leverages Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Data Mining, Cloud-Computing, and Machine Learning technologies to provide predictive analytics capabilities for purposes of improving the reliability, availability and efficiency of complex and distributed assets, leading organizations into the Industrial 4.0 revolution. Our customers leverage our products throughout the infrastructure life cycle – including planning, build and operation – to improve ROI, reduce risk, and improve decision making.”
Enabling the firm to deliver these innovative solutions is the experienced, inventive and committed team which forms the backbone of Atonix Digital. When discussing the internal culture, Matt is keen to highlight the significant role the team plays in the overall success of the firm.
“The Atonix Digital team is comprised of software developers, product managers, business and partner development managers, industry solution experts, customer success representatives and marketers, all of whom have our customer needs top of mind in all we do. We work hard to provide practical and easily – understandable information to our clients so they understand what they are purchasing, how their implementation will take place and the ongoing level of support they will receive as they learn and use our products over time.”
Bringing the interview to a close, Matt signs off by reflecting on how the firm is aware of the longstanding challenges the plant environment has faced in responding to alarms with traditional preventive maintenance of their assets. But he revealed that the approach the team at Atonix Digital takes is to predict the occurrence of an event before an alarm is actually going off.
“…all of whom have our customer needs top of mind in all we do. We work hard to provide practical and easily – understandable information to our clients so they understand what they are purchasing, how their implementation will take place and the ongoing level of support they will receive as they learn and use our products over time.”
“With our approach, customers can proactively address the issue instead of waiting for the issue to cause costly downtime. This eliminates the sense of urgency and turns the unplanned events into a predictable environment where downtime can be scheduled, and future issues can be proactively managed. Customers have complete visibility into equipment behavior and can mitigate failures in the field, thereby enabling them to invest in the actual asset requirement rather than following outdated manufacturers’ maintenance schedules. Plus, our rich experience is key to getting customers up and running quickly.”
Looking ahead to what the future holds for the firm, the team at Atonix Digital will continue to deliver an impeccable service to their clients, ensuring that they not only meet the requirements which have been set but also surpass their expectations. Moving forward, the Atonix Digital team also hopes to further expand both the business and the services they offer to clients, especially following their recent success in Acquisition Intl.’s Global Excellence Awards 2019 where they were righteously awarded the accolade Most Innovative Data Analytics Company for Asset Management – 2019.
