Based on its recent analysis of the European rail vehicle IoT solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Eurotech with the 2021 Europe Competitive Strategy Leadership Award. The company has expertly harnessed the opportunities in the industrial market with its advanced IoT solutions delivered through a comprehensive suite of unique platforms, systems, and procedures. Its sound edge computing and gateway platforms have transformed several industries, such as manufacturing, utilities, and transportation.
“Eurotech offers full end-to-end OT solutions enabling seamless IT/OT integration, with modular and highly integrated technologies. This approach gives customers the flexibility to choose just a single product (like a relevant edge computer or IoT device middleware) or a complete stack,” said Guruguhan Nataraj, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “Its deep vertical expertise in rolling stock, track record in IoT software building blocks, and rail certified hardware focused on miniaturisation, ruggedisation, and security, sets Eurotech apart from other competitors in the classic embedded space”.
“This prestigious award from Frost and Sullivan is appreciated very much” commented Robert Andres, Eurotech’s Chief Strategy Officer. “It is at the same time confirmation for the already achieved and motivation to continue our path to develop hardware and software IoT building blocks that allow our rail customers to reach new levels of operational excellence and enable a solid foundation for digital transformation”.
The company is currently expanding its presence by leveraging its hardware and software integration capabilities and mid- to high-performance edge computing with robust thermal management. It serves clients with its two main IoT products, Everyware Software Framework (ESF) (an edge device middleware) and Everyware Cloud (an IT/OT integration platform with rail/rolling stock certified hardware components that can resolve vendor lock-in issues). It also offers DynaPCN, a passenger counter system that is an intelligent sensor used in various public transport applications, including fleet management applications.
Eurotech enhances operational reliability, consistency, and transparency by helping customers reduce their total cost of ownership. It is one of a few companies that has been a long-standing supplier to the rail/rolling stock industry and its operators. The company’s focus on developing new and efficient ways to deliver services, procedures, and techniques has helped it establish itself in major markets such as Europe, North America, and Japan.
“Eurotech leverages its extensive industry expertise, strategic model, continuous process improvements, and rigorous compliance standards to ensure consistent quality and best-in-class services” observed Anamika Risal, Best Practices Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “With almost 30 years of experience, competitive differentiation, and delivery of exceptional experience support, such as its rolling stock hardware and IoT platforms for data acquisition, device management and security, the company has entrenched itself as an industry leader”.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that leverages competitive intelligence to execute successfully a strategy that results in stronger market share, competitive brand positioning, and customer satisfaction.
