Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, is acquiring Toronto’s Fiix Software.
Founded in 2008, Fiix is the software-as-a-service (SaaS) maintenance management platform that combines mobile asset management, work order, and parts management and supercharges it with the most open integration network and AI-driven insights.
As the number of industrial connected assets multiplies, the ability to gain insights from maintenance operations is becoming increasingly important to a manufacturer’s ability to gain competitive advantage. This insight enables another level of productivity in addition to the core automation.
“We believe that the future of industrial asset management is performance-based,” said Tessa Myers, vice president, product management, Software & Control, for Rockwell Automation.
“With the addition of the Fiix platform and expertise, our customers will benefit from a 360-degree view of integrated data across automation, production, and maintenance, helping them to monitor and improve the performance of their assets and optimize how maintenance work is done.”
The addition of Fiix directly aligns with Rockwell Automation’s software strategy. Fiix will be reported as part of Rockwell Automation’s Software & Control operating segment.
Fiix currently employs 200 and is actively hiring Developers and Engineers in Toronto.
