Predikto, a Signature company of the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), said it will create at least five new engineering jobs at its Atlanta headquarters to support its expansion into Europe.
The company makes software that analyzes the data generated by its clients to study the performance of their industrial equipment to reduce asset failures. It announced the opening of its first European office in Vilvoorde, Belgium, and the expansion of its world-wide team to meet the growing demand for industrial-scale predictive analytics that can help global industrial and transportation companies capitalize on the boom in data driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
As part of the expansion, the company said it named Carl Fransman managing director of its Europe, Middle East, Africa operations, and Philippe Thys director of Solutions and Innovation.
“European companies are enthusiastically embracing the advent of the IIoT,” said Mario Montag, Predikto founder and CEO. “Our robust offering is built to process high volume, ‘big data’ from diverse sources, including asset management or MRO systems, telematics and avionics systems, as well as sensors and environmental information, and give our customers a more accurate, actionable insight into asset and component reliability.
“We’re delighted to have Carl and Philippe on our team.”
