AVTECH Wins Their Third Most Innovative Company Award from Providence Business News

Rhode Island manufacturer of environment monitors recognized as an Innovation in Manufacturing winner by the Providence Business News for their Room Alert PRO monitors and new Mobile UV System

August 20, 2020 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) is honored to announce that it has been recognized as the 2020 Most Innovative Manufacturing Company by the Providence Business News in their annual Fastest Growing and Innovative Companies program. AVTECH’s recognition comes in response to their Room Alert PRO line of secure proactive monitors, as well as their new Mobile UV System which helps to sanitize and disinfect facilities.

Now in its 32nd year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor for business continuity plans. 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 one of the world’s largest retailers, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, every branch of the US military, and many state and local governments.

The Room Alert PRO line of proactive environment monitors was introduced in early 2020. The line currently consists of three monitors that offer security features like TLS email, SSL, SNMP v3, 2048-bit encryption and more. Room Alert PRO is the environment monitor of choice for businesses and organization that want to follow security best practices, such as banking and finance, medical, educational, and government facilities.

AVTECH recently launched the Mobile UV System in North America after a successful introduction in the Ireland market. The Mobile UV System uses UV-C light to kill bacteria and inactivate viruses to help protect the health of people that need access to facilities such as classrooms, hotels, restaurants, gyms, hair salons, and shared office space. Utilizing the same GUV technology found in hospital environments, the Mobile UV System kills 99.9% of microbes.

“It is always an honor to have our team and products recognized for their innovation,” said Richard Grundy, President of AVTECH. “We knew that the launch of our Room Alert PRO line would provide an incredible benefit to our security-conscious customers, and our team’s hard work has been rewarded with this recognition as well as the steady sales of that line. Additionally, the new Mobile UV System is positioned to help schools provide a safe environment for students and faculty, and to help so many businesses recover from the ongoing pandemic and help everyone get back to work safely.”

In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also 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 is a crucial part of any organization’s business continuity plan, as it allows users to fully monitor environment conditions in their data centers, server rooms, and facilities that can cause unexpected downtime.

“I am consistently proud of our team for the hard work they put into supporting our customers and valued resellers worldwide,” said Michael Sigourney, CEO and Founder of AVTECH. “We recognize that customer needs and concerns are always evolving, and our Room Alert PRO monitors and software help address so many of the things our users are concerned with when it comes to secure environment monitoring. The Mobile UV System is the next step in our goal to help our customers provide a safe environment that helps protect the health of their staff, customers, students and tenants. We are very proud to help businesses and organizations protect their environments given the current conditions, and more importantly help provide them with peace of mind going forward.”
