Numerex Receives Two IoT Evolution Awards

iManage and mySHIELD Garner Honors as ‘Product of the Year'

ATLANTA, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Numerex Corp (NASDAQ:NMRX), a leading provider of managed enterprise solutions enabling the Internet of Things (IoT) announced today that two of its IoT Managed Services, iManage™ and mySHIELD™, have each received a 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution magazine and IoT Evolution World, the leading magazine and Web site covering IoT technologies.

iManage enables manufacturing optimization and allows tracking visibility of high value assets such as production parts, assemblies, and racks between factories and suppliers, identifying problems and delays before they become critical.  iManage also tracks the location and movements of bins, crates and containers, which helps save time, money and inventory.

mySHIELD, is a wearable IoT solution designed to enhance the safety of lone workers, the elderly, and other at risk groups. Featuring a small form factor, wireless cellular connectivity, carry or clip on capabilities, and instant access to a live operator via a one push panic button, mySHIELD is the perfect solution to enhance the safety of people in a variety of industries who are often alone, or are likely to find themselves in potentially hazardous situations where safety could be jeopardized such as real estate agents, energy and utility workers, and heavy equipment operators.

Shu Gan, Numerex Chief Marketing Officer commented, "iManage and mySHIELD are two new IoT solutions from Numerex, both combine Device, Network, and Application and are offered as end-to-end managed services from our platform that provide much needed benefits to enterprises and people. We are pleased to see our new IoT solutions being recognized as leaders of the industry and will continue on our path to launch more innovative products and services."
