Crosser and Advantech Announces Strategic Alliance to Simplify Edge Analytics for Industrial IoT
Stockholm/Munich, 21 January 2021 - Crosser, a leading provider of Intelligent Edge Analytics software for Industrial IoT, and Advantech, a global leader in intelligent IoT systems and embedded platforms announced today that they have initiated a strategic alliance to empower global industries with Advanced Edge Analytics.
The strategic alliance includes an initiative to have Crosser Edge Analytics software pre-installed on new Advantech IoT systems in order to reduce the complexity and speed up the time from idea to proof of value in Industrial IoT. The low-code and drag-and-drop nature of the Crosser software makes it easy, also for non-developers, to innovate. The broad connectivity support of Advantech IoT systems means that data from a long list of machines can be collected, analyzed and acted upon.
“Advantech is a trusted global supplier of Industrial grade systems and the combination of highly reliable hardware and easy-to-use but yet advanced software will create significant customer value. Together we empower customers with an Industrial IoT/Industry 4.0 vision to go from idea to realization much faster and to a lower total cost,” says Martin Thunman, CEO and co-founder of Crosser.
“We are glad to work together with forefront software like Crosser. Together we offer a complete solution with our dedicated hardware, the Advantech EdgeLink system as backbone and Crosser Advanced Analytics on top - enabling Industry 4.0 for both brownfield and future installations ” says Rick de Vries, Head of Smart Industrial & Equipment Builders at Advantech.
The Crosser and Advantech partnership is targeting both already installed products, so-called brownfield installations, as well as new deployments in order to simplify the digitalization journey for industrial customers.
“In our discussion with Advantech, we wanted to meet the demand for a product that radically simplifies the industry's IoT initiatives. Therefore we came up with this Advantech Edge Solution-Ready Platform with the Low Code Crosser Platform embedded,” says Mikael Samuelsson, Director of Strategic Alliances & Partners.

Advantech offers its build, configuration and design services worldwide, through a global sales, logistics and support organisation that works with its customers and their end-users wherever our equipment ends up.
