Litmus Automation, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider, has announced a distribution agreement with AMAX Global Services (AGS), a software development and system integration business partner.
The agreement will allow Litmus Automation to sell to and support customers in the Greater China region, opening up the world’s largest manufacturing market including local companies and global companies with manufacturing operations in the region.
AGS boasts of several large domestic manufacturing companies as clients and Litmus Automation offers solutions to help them take advantage of data at the edge and implement IIoT solutions efficiently. AGS is headquartered in Fremont, California with deep roots in China, making it an easy transition for San Jose-based Litmus Automation to enter the market with their assistance.
“Asia-Pacific is key to our growth strategy and this partnership marks our expansion into the Chinese market,” said Vatsal Shah, co-founder and CEO of Litmus. “AGS works as the system integrator for many of the larger manufacturing companies in China and they will be our valued partner as we get started in the China region. We can now support any customer in the Greater China region and we look forward to expanding the reach of Loop and LoopEdge to help more companies with their Industry 4.0 journey.”
As a distributor, AGS will sell and integrate LoopEdge and Loop Cloud. Litmus’ Loop and LoopEdge Solutions enable data collection from any device, data manipulation and quick analytics with real-time visualisation on top. Loop lets customers securely connect and manage any type of hardware, device, sensor or machine, with the ability to integrate data in real-time to any third-party software application or enterprise system with a simple interface.
AGS will provide installation and system integration services for Litmus products and will work with additional systems integrators for large scale IoT deployments. AGS will also provide help desk support in Chinese and consistent with local time zones.
