Apprion: IoT Platform for Seamless Industrial Operations

Doug Donzelli, CEO
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) draws together a vast number of connected industrial systems that are communicating and coordinating data, analytics, actions to improve efficiency, and reduce or eliminate equipment downtime. “Integration of complex physical machinery with networked sensors and software provides an intelligent analysis of the data and safety to the assets,” says Doug Donzelli, CEO, Apprion. Apprion is an IIoT company, and delivers intelligent, industrial applications and services for the process manufacturing industry. The company has a strong focus on predictive analytics and predictive monitoring of all interconnected devices and integrated applications.

Apprion extends and manages the Industrial Internet of Things with the only Open, Industrial application platform – the ION System. The ION System provides an Integrated, Secure, and Scalable Solution to addresses key industrial safety, security, compliance and performance needs, for Communication, Condition Monitoring, Asset and Personnel Location, Video, and Workforce Mobility.

The ION System is an integrated platform for monitoring and managing multiple applications, devices, and systems in one dashboard, and comes with a unique managed services offering - 7x24x365 network monitoring from industrial experts. The ION System is vendor-neutral, allowing for multiple hardware vendors to integrate with the platform, and is fully secure.

Ahead of the curve, Apprion’s focus from the start has been “Industrial Applications” addressing safety, security, compliance and performance specifically for Industrial Facilities – all integrated in the Industrial Internet of Things. Apprion’s IIoT platform, the ION System, supports multiple applications, and universally connects all applications and data points in a defined Industrial Cloud – any device, any vendor, all protocols, processes, communication technologies, and things. Apprion’s vendor agnostic architecture was designed for the open Industrial Internet of Things approach. All of the company’s products are Industrial rated products- applications designed specifically for industrial processes, and systems configured seamlessly with the Industrial Cloud and the Industrial Internet of Things.

The company has deployed its applications across large plants requiring expensive infrastructure installations. For instance, BASF Chemicals, a major chemical company in North America, has deployed multiple applications from Apprion’s suite. Having a large process manufacturing plant, BASF required integrated, intelligent and efficient applications to provide onsite personnel safety, support its turnaround process, and help keep track of its resources. Apprion has successfully deployed wireless applications to solve all these problems. BASF considered various IIoT providers, and chose Apprion’s ION System for the project. Apprion’s Wireless applications helped BASF realize multiple efficiency gains and cost savings for the industrial plant.

Apprion’s future is chartered to work with top chemical and energy companies in the world. Apprion’s culture is attuned to anticipate and understand their customer’s needs. Emphasizing on the openness of their platform, Donzelli says, “Our systems are vendor-agnostic and standards-based, which gives the industry the freedom to select the most suitable technology for an application or environment based on performance, price or durability.”
