CITA Industries and Wiless Controls Enter into an Agreement to Provide New M2M Solutions

By Michael Guta January 29, 2013

M2M communications is seen as one of the biggest growth industries in the world. It is no longer a niche market reserved for a select few – virtually every sector will rely on M2M to keep track of their assets and improve productivity across every segment of an organization. The company with the simplest application for monitoring a company’s assets will be poised to grab a large share of a growing market. Wiless system is a company that provides a plug-and-play M2M solution that gives organizations a system to monitor assets right out of the box. The agreement with CITA industries for the production and design of its cellular gateway will give the company a gateway for penetrating this market.

The approach Wiless is taking in the M2M market will give it a strong entry by addressing what larger enterprises are overlooking. The learning curve associated with some M2M applications can be time consuming and expensive. The plug-and-play system Wiless is adopting gives the user access to sensors, a cellular gateway, ready-to-use cellular communications and a website interface. All of these assets are used to provide a medium in which it gives the user information on the assets being monitored at all times no matter where it is.

 “Our R&D team has designed an”end-to-end” solution that is well ahead of the rest of the Machine-to-Machine industry in hardware, software and functionality. We knew that we wanted a production partner that stood for quality and reliability. Cita, an international company that works with large public companies such as Illinois Tool Works, Neopost and AGA Marvel, gives us that and much more,” says Michel St-Pierre, CEO at Wiless Controls Inc

In choosing Cita Industries, Wiless has partnered up with a company that has decades of experience in manufacturing brand-name products for businesses around the globe. The companies will also be participating in research and development of next generation of M2M technologies.

“Cita Industries and our parent Transcell Technology, have more than thirty years of experience as a full service contract manufacturer providing every aspect of what is needed to deliver turnkey products. We are very pleased to have partnered with Wiless and assure them of our full support to allow them to reach the ambitious goals they have set for themselves,” said Tom Gulbransen, Director of Business Development at Cita Technologies LLC.

The ultimate goal of M2M is to provide information on the performance of an asset so it can be fixed before it is broken, thereby decreasing downtime and increasing uptime. The method Wiless is implementing has the potential for large scale adaptability for organization of all sizes, because it is affordable and effective.
