Arco Information integrates their DOMA™ digital platform in client's existing systems to automate and digitize business workflow. The purpose is to replace manual processes with innovative, configurable, adaptable and fully digital information workflows for business Process (documents) and business Automation (controls). Arco is partnering with ZoraBots to grow their Process and Automation divisions. "Arco Information will integrate & deploy ZoraBots' ZBOS software platform to existing clients. In addition, Arco will grow the ZBOS customer base in the Americas, providing ZBOS licenses & services. Via their subscription models for clients, this leads to monthly recurring revenue (MRR) per license for ZoraBots and Arco," explains David Downey.
This new international partnership agreement brings great new smart device control opportunities (robotics, IoT, and metaverse) to Arco's global client base, which includes multinational clients worldwide in telecommunications, healthcare, government and logistics/transportation sectors. This agreement with ZoraBots is the continuation of an automation strategy: Arco Information will look for opportunities with clients in North America where ZBOS can be part of a client's integrated solution from Arco. "Due to the ZBOS software platform ability to link to diverse physical and meta IOT devices, (real world and the virtual world or metaverse), Zorabots nv solutions are an ideal and complementary addition to the solutions of Arco Information's DOMA™ platform services. In addition to our robust processes of digitizing manual actions and paper, ZBOS will collect information from smart devices and other device or system sources and automated 'answers' can be set up," says Downey. "Both DOMA™ and ZBOS were designed to ensure they are "no-code/low-code" platforms. New system automations can be simply set up as they require (futureproofing), adjusting information flows on demand, and thus continuously optimize operations."
"For the evolution of the Canadian division of Arco as automation specialists, this agreement comes at a perfect time for us. The five-year period for the reselling of the ZBOS licenses & services and the recurring revenue per license means that we have a very strong offering to bring to the partners and clients that are looking for their business system's and device's control from one provider. We now offer even more smart automation solutions in the real world and metaverse for the office and the factory." says Arco founder Paul Van Coillie. "We have always been proud of our work as a Belgium headquartered company with international footprints, and are honoured to be bringing another great Belgian solution partner to market in ZoraBots nv. Now it is a matter of continuing to innovate and in the meantime we are already looking forward to the next projects. "

Laird Connectivity, a global leader in wireless technology, announced a major leap forward for effective management for their portfolio of IoT devices. Canvas™ Device Manager dramatically simplifies the process of configuring and managing IoT products in the field throughout the full product lifecycle – a previously frustrating task for organizations needing to manage the growing number and variety of IoT devices that are critical for their operations.
Organizations using Laird Connectivity's Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) connected IoT devices in the field now have the option of leveraging Canvas Device Manager, which provides instant wireless access to the entire fleet via Bluetooth LE gateways.
Canvas brings extensive automation to the management of IoT device deployments by simplifying workflows for wireless/OTA configuration and maintenance. Organizations can easily set up devices, monitor connectivity, measure performance, and keep software up-to-date across their entire IoT device network.
"Canvas Device Manager is a game-changer for businesses looking to streamline their device management processes," said Senthooran Ragavan, Senior Product Manager, Laird Connectivity. "We understand the challenges that businesses face when managing a large number of devices in the field and we've developed this platform with our partner EdgeIQ to simplify the process and save valuable time and resources."
Managing IoT devices at scale can be a daunting task requiring a significant amount of labor that keeps team members from higher-priority projects. The complexity of that process can also result in devices that are not performing the way they need to and are not as secure as they should be. Canvas Device Manager, deployed in conjunction with EdgeIQ, simplifies this process by providing a centralized platform for managing all devices, including remote management capabilities as well as real-time monitoring and reporting on device status. This ensures that any issues can be identified and resolved quickly.
Key features of Canvas Device Manager include
Fleet management of profiles, versions, and status of all connected devices
Zero-touch configuration and provisioning to quickly deploy complex wireless systems
Remote monitoring of wellness reports against supported Laird Connectivity gateways and sensors
Software updates sent to a fleet of Laird Connectivity IoT devices with any software or firmware at the edge
Ability to connect directly to deployed Bluetooth LE devices through a Bluetooth LE gateway, enabling unique OTA firmware updates and configuration for each device
