August 13, 2018 By    

DataOnline, a global provider of industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions, acquired Independent Technologies, a provider of hardware, software and services to the telecommunications, oil and gas, and power industries.

Along with DataOnline’s recent acquisition of Germany-based Wikon GmbH, the combined business will serve more than 1,000 customers across Europe, Asia and the Americas, the company says.

Independent Technologies’ brands include Enertrac, Wintel and Sheyenne Dakota, as well as Wesroc, a provider of IIoT solutions to the North American propane market. Its offerings include cellular, satellite and LoRa technology.

“We are excited to have Independent Technologies/Wesroc as part of DataOnline,” says Rob Barnacle, president of DataOnline. “This combination is a perfect fit for us and solidifies our already strong presence within the North American IIoT market. We look forward to the partnership and are excited to leverage the capabilities at each organization to develop better solutions for our customers.”

Developing new products and improving user experience are primary goals of the consolidated businesses, DataOnline says. The companies’ combined engineering resources will drive innovation in areas like low-power wide-area network technologies, hardware reliability, battery life, mobile access, route planning/scheduling and predictive analytics, the company adds.

“We’re leveraging our scale and experience in multiple monitoring segments – industrial gas, LPG, LNG, CO2, oil and gas, and water – to provide unparalleled service and customer outcomes,” says Chet Reshamwala, DataOnline COO. “We’re focused on partnering with our customers to enable improvements in safety, efficiency and service to their own customers.”
