Foxborough, MA – July 29, 2019 – ICONICS is a global automation software provider and six-time winner of the Microsoft Partner of the Year award, providing advanced web-enabled OPC UA and BACnet certified visualization, analytics, mobile, and IoT software solutions for any energy, manufacturing, industrial or building automation application. ICONICS announces that it has joined Arrow Electronics (NYSE: ARW) and Rigado in launching a smart occupancy and floor space monitoring solution; an innovative IoT Smart Buildings solution co-created by the three companies.
Based on an Arrow-designed and sourced set of IoT sensors, gateways, and software, the Rigado Cascade and ICONICS visualization solution is a secure and managed edge intelligence solution with analytics dashboards for a wide range of smart building applications. Space monitoring and utilization are primary features that provide both commercial and retail building managers with a deeper understanding into how their workspaces are being utilized and actionable insights into processes that improve efficiencies and user experiences.
“ICONICS automation software helps organizations make the most of their connected data,” said Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS, “enabling them to ‘Make the Invisible Visible’. With this smart buildings solution, co-developed with Arrow Electronics and Rigado, customers will be able to take data from their wide array of building systems and sensors, which can be applied to energy management, predictive maintenance, and much more.”
“Companies today have more employee mobility and remote interaction than ever before, and both commercial and retail building owners are seeking to better manage these spaces," said Aiden Mitchell, vice president of global IoT for Arrow. “This solution we have developed with our suppliers will help address these building occupancy challenges by taking the guesswork out of understanding how spaces are truly being utilized in real time, and improving their impact on a company's growth, revenue and user experience."  
The occupancy and monitoring solution comes with support for a wide range of sensor and device options, upstream cloud data integration, device support through Microsoft’s Azure IoT Hub, and a variety of global cellular data options. In collaboration with ICONICS and Arrow, Rigado's sensors and gateway platform seamlessly deliver real-time occupancy and environmental data to the cloud, to be analyzed and optimized by ICONICS’ smart building applications. 
By combining Rigado Cascade with sensors, cellular connectivity, engineering support, and cloud services via ICONICS and Microsoft Azure, the solution offers an out-of-the-box smart building solution, all in one monthly subscription. 
"Gathering reliable and objective data about how and when space is being occupied and utilized is key to making educated decisions in today’s dynamic commercial real estate market. And companies without that insight will increasingly face challenges with operating efficiency and revenue growth," said Brad McMahon vice president, corporate development at Rigado. “The more you know about your space, the better you can operate today, and plan for tomorrow."
