XLink partners with IoT.nxt to strengthen its digital transformation capability
September 2018, News


XLink has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with IoT innovator IoT.nxt, with the aim of enabling businesses to digitalise their operations and take advantage of the Internet of Things.

IoT.nxt is a Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Platforms and winner of several innovation and IoT awards. The company opened an office in The Hague in September last year, and is currently expanding into the US, having concluded partnership agreements with key industry players, including Dell.

With over fourteen years as a secure machine-to-machine connectivity expert, XLink intends to leverage its core capabilities and grow a best-of-breed partner ecosystem to bring new value propositions to the market.

“We believe IoT.nxt offers a premium solution that will strengthen our offering as the orchestration partner of choice for digital transformation,” says XLink MD, Roy van Vuuren. “Furthermore, we foresee that our collaboration will unlock opportunity and value creation for both our businesses, customers and our ecosystems.”

Connectivity is in XLink’s DNA and it is an expert in developing Industry 4.0 solutions, using the best products and practices. It ensures that the mission-critical devices and connectivity networks upon which the digital solution relies can be installed, monitored and maintained for optimum uptime.

“We are delighted that XLink invested in our technology,” says IoT.nxt CEO, Nico Steyn. “It is IoT.nxt’s strategy to build innovative software that we can take to market through channel and strategic partnerships. Our technology stack is designed to be a toolset for partners to utilise as part of their technology ecosystems, which enables digital transformation. XLink is a dynamic company in the local market with a clear view of how it wants to transform its company. Through the agreement with IoT.nxt, it can now offer innovative new solutions to its customers.

“This partnership will be mutually beneficial to us and XLink and it is an exciting next step in the development of IoT.nxt. The focus of what we do is to drive business value through the use of IoT technology, which we believe is more about business strategy than a pure technology solution. This latest agreement allows us to reach a much wider market.”

“This agreement will position XLink to use the best connectivity and technology to make digital transformation a reality for our customers, communities and the continent,” concludes van Vuuren. “The potential of this new era is incredible and the vision of creating a better future by bringing together the technologies to transform society is exciting.”
