AVTECH Wins Second Consecutive Most Innovative Company Award from Providence Business News Rhode Island manufacturer of environment monitors once again recognized as an Innovation in Manufacturing winner by the Providence Business News Fastest Growing & Innovative Companies Awards Program

August 30, 2018 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) is honored to announce that it has been recognized as the 2018 Most Innovative Manufacturing Company by the Providence Business News in their annual Fastest Growing and Innovative Companies program. AVTECH’s award is largely due to their new patent-pending Monitor360 technology, which customers use to gain deep insight into the environment factors impacting their facilities and organization.

2018 marks the second win in a row for AVTECH in the Innovative Manufacturers category, and the second overall award presented to AVTECH by the Providence Business News in 2018.

Now in its 30th year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor. Room Alert is made in the USA and proactively monitors environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more. Room Alert is currently used in 186 of 196 countries by organizations ranging from thousands of small businesses to Amazon, Boeing, Sprint, Microsoft, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, Pentagon, all branches of the US government, all 50 states, and many local governments. AVTECH was named “RI Exporter of the Year” by the US Small Business Administration for 2018.

Room Alert is an important part of business continuity plans, as it provides monitoring of the environment factors that cause 30% of outages suffered by businesses that traditional security hardware and software do not monitor. With models starting at just $165, there is a Room Alert solution for organizations and applications of every size or type.

“Being selected for the second year in a row for the Most Innovative Manufacturer is an incredible honor for us,” said Richard Grundy, President of AVTECH. “This recognition is a testament to our entire team for their hard work and dedication to helping our customers better protect their organizations. Our Room Alert monitors and Room Alert Account Service have always been industry leaders when it comes to alerting users as to what is happening in their facilities. Our patent-pending Monitor360 technology takes that one step further and tells users why they’re being impacted by an environment factor, allowing for a quicker and more effective response while reducing the potential for downtime or damage.”

In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also provides Device ManageR software and the Room Alert Account web portal for Room Alert monitoring, logging, management, and reporting. Both software packages are developed, supported, and updated at AVTECH’s corporate headquarters at Cutler Mill in Warren, Rhode Island.

AVTECH offers a wide range of digital, switch and analog sensors designed to help users monitor as many environment conditions as possible to help protect their facilities. Room Alert users can protect their facilities by easily adding sensors to monitor environment factors such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, and smoke while also monitoring factors such as fuel/water tank levels, motion, and air flow as well.

“I am proud of our team for constantly developing new ways for our customers to use Room Alert to better protect their data centers, server rooms, IT closets, and all of their most important assets,” said Michael Sigourney, CEO and Founder of AVTECH. “Our company is proud to employ so many Rhode Islanders, and bring more accolades to our state and region. The addition of Monitor360 technology to RoomAlert.com, which was completely developed right here in Warren, takes environment monitoring to an unparalleled level. It’s just another way of proving why our team continues to make AVTECH the leading manufacturer of proactive environment monitoring products worldwide.”
