Californian firm Vantiq has announced a partnership with Singapore-based PrimusTech to develop and deploy real-time applications for the digital transformation of hospitals and commercial buildings.

The collaboration will focus on PrimusTech’s on-going initiatives around smart buildings and smart healthcare in Singapore and elsewhere. PrimusTech specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of integrated control and automation systems in smart buildings.

The deployment of Vantiq’s technology will allow building operators to cut costs as they more efficiently optimise performance with predictive maintenance. What’s more, building operators also benefit from new insights, allowing them to drill down on data metrics such as foot traffic or retailer performance and average visitor dwell time.

“We’re very excited to be working with one of the pacesetters in the digital transformation of buildings,” said Marty Sprinzen, CEO of Vantiq. “Our technology platform helps to analyse streaming data from new and existing IoT devices, enterprise systems, cameras, and more to foster real-time situational awareness on the edge and build smart building applications ten times faster than anything else in the industry.”

As hospitals look to digitise their buildings, Vantiq and PrimusTech plan to usher in an era of efficiency, allowing organisations to reap gains from advances allowing for the automated adjustment of building parameters, such as optimal lighting levels or temperature and humidity controls. At the same time, hospitals using Vantiq’s real-time reporting platform will be able to manage their assets more accurately while responding with more alacrity to alerts about patients who find themselves in distress.

“We look forward to adding Vantiq’s platform to our suite of solutions and offer higher value to our customers,” said PrimusTech CEO Amanda Shen. “We believe that Vantiq’s capabilities will be instrumental in establishing our position as a pioneer in the digital transformation of organisations around the globe.”

Vantiq is a low code and agile platform designed for real-time application development, making it easier for developers to integrate real-time data sources – from cameras to sensors and other edge devices – and create applications that monitor assets, events, people and environments while reducing development cost and allowing rapid enhancement in production. These applications can then analyse and act on complex problems, such as a flood, major traffic accidents, factory breakdowns or an employee with a high temperature entering a corporate lobby, all in real time, enabling a faster and more effective response in collaboration with human teams.

“Together with PrimusTech, we are already working on projects that will showcase how to effectively and easily drive truly integrated solutions with IoT platforms, AI, machine learning and legacy systems, all working together seamlessly to offer real-time outcomes for mission-critical applications on the cloud, on premise and through the edge,” said Steve Goh, Vantiq vice president for Apac. “This will enable PrimusTech customers to take a leadership position with their digital transformation initiatives, doing it faster and with reduced cost and complexity, driving a higher deployment success rate.”

Vantiq enables users to build applications that combine real-world data and real-time events. Its agile development environment allows complex applications to be created in weeks with little coding, taking advantage of AI, IoT and edge computing. Vantiq was founded in 2015 by technology veterans Marty Sprinzen and Paul Butterworth, co-founders of Forte Software.

PrimusTech is a master system integrator in Singapore, principally engaged in the provision, design and implementation of integrated control and automation systems as well as an IT-enabled cloud developed for the building industry. It has a track record in carrying out turnkey projects in commercial, healthcare, transportation and industrial buildings in Singapore and overseas.
