Toronto, Canada—September 22, 2020— Fiix Inc. and MachineMetrics have announced a new partnership between Fiix’s industry-leading maintenance platform and MachineMetrics’ cutting-edge manufacturing IoT platform that enables businesses to drive turnkey automated maintenance solutions with real-time data from their production equipment.
“Maintenance and operations teams should have the power to not only get information from every piece of equipment, task, person, and part at their facilities, but the tools to connect this data, analyze it, and use it to make meaningful improvements at their organization. Fiix is making this a possibility by building a hyper-connected maintenance management platform with the most open ecosystem of IIoT solutions. Teaming up with world-class partners like MachineMetrics is crucial to achieving this vision.” says James Novak, CEO of Fiix.
The combined offering between Fiix and MachineMetrics enables companies to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time to improve machine performance, increase capacity, and ultimately win more business. Connecting Fiix and MachineMetrics allows teams to monitor the health of equipment in real-time and automatically trigger maintenance in Fiix based on asset usage and condition. The integration also sends alerts when anomalous behavior occurs on a machine and creates in-depth reports on asset performance and condition, and more.

“MachineMetrics is the machine data component of the digital factory. Now, together with Fiix, manufacturers can leverage this real-time data to empower factory worker maintenance actions and maintenance system automation,” says Bill Bither, CEO and Co-founder of MachineMetrics.
“Our companies share a vision that to deliver on the potential for factory automation and Manufacturing 4.0 requires an ecosystem of best-in-breed partners to accelerate value attainment and minimize the risk of initiative failure. We view Fiix as exactly that for maintenance. Optimally aligning companies like ours with unique capabilities will dramatically improve the likelihood of success while prioritizing resources towards what everyone does best,” says Bither
“This partnership is incredibly exciting because it connects the maintenance team to everything that’s happening on the shop floor. This amplifies their ability to identify failure before it happens, target flaws in equipment at their root, and keep assets running at their best so companies can achieve and maintain key competitive advantages,” says Novak.
The collaboration with MachineMetrics is the latest in Fiix’s rapidly growing IIoT partnership ecosystem that is connecting maintenance teams with the people, systems, and data they need to expand their impact. Learn more at www.fiixsoftware.com/app-exchange.
