WebNMS and Standout partner to deliver M2M in West Africa
November 3, 2015
WebNMS and Standout Business Solutions are working together to deliver scalable IoT and M2M applications to enterprises in West Africa.
WebNMS is a California-based provider of scalable software platforms for multi-vendor network management and IoT. Standout Business Solutions is the Nigeria-based M2M and data management division of Synergy Systems.
“Together, Standout and WebNMS are able to successfully deliver high performance, scalable IoT solutions,” said Darryl Stork, regional director of WebNMS. “With this partnership, Standout’s customers have immediate access to cost-effective IoT applications that improve the financial costs and return of their remote assets.”
The WebNMS IoT software platform is for the development of scalable IoT applications. It is said to be the first open platform to integrate remote sensor monitoring, energy management, security, location management and on-board diagnostics while offering support for all vendor and OEM equipment and technologies. The company also develops IoT applications focused on the B2B market, including its ATM site manager, cell tower manager, power grid monitor and data centre infrastructure management applications.
However, WebNMS remains strongly committed to its open platform approach that enables third-party system integrators and developers to create their own applications. This partnership with Standout expands its IoT reach into West Africa.
“Standout delivers customised solutions for enterprises in Nigeria and the rest of West Africa, particularly within the financial services, public sector and telecommunications verticals,” said Tosin Olapo, Standout division managing director. “We selected the WebNMS IoT platform because it is a flexible and open platform that gives us the control we need to rapidly develop and tailor our unique solutions to exact customer specifications.”
Standout is a division of Synergy Systems. Synergy will promote and provide support for the WebNMS IoT products to its existing customer base.
“We’re excited to partner with WebNMS in the IoT market,” said Emmanuel Obijiofor, Synergy Group managing director. “Our service provider customers need scalable, multi-device IoT and M2M solutions. With its history in carrier-grade, multi-vendor network management software, WebNMS brings a proven track record to IoT.”
WebNMS is the service provider software division of Zoho.
