'eMation has the knowledge, technology, and experience to get virtually any intelligent device up and running with the power of DRM,' said Dale Calder, CEO and President of eMation.

The powerful eMation DRM(TM) system allows manufacturers of devices such as machines, instruments, equipment, facilities, and sensors to stay in touch with their products throughout their lifecycle, tapping the value of hidden information with new, automated e-service and e-commerce offerings. eMation DRM is architected for flexibility and rapid adoption to get intelligent devices talking and enterprises listening. On completion of a Fast Forward project, the manufacturer's service, sales, marketing, and engineering personnel can immediately realize the benefits of live information delivered directly from devices deployed at their customer sites.

About Device Relationship Management

Device Relationship Management addresses a significant information blind spot within most companies and business systems today. DRM leverages the Internet to connect product organizations to the things they care about most -- the products they make and sell -- and keep them connected throughout their lifecycle. It allows timely, accurate, and unbiased information to be communicated automatically between remote devices - intelligent machines, equipment, products, sensors, and systems -- deployed at customer facilities and external monitoring and service personnel or enterprise business systems like Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Operation Support Systems (OSS), enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain and asset management. Device Relationship Management helps turn reactive business systems into proactive business systems providing new sources of revenue and increased operational efficiency at lower costs with an ROI that can often be measured in months.
