Augmentir is the world’s only Smart Connected Worker Suite

Augmentir is the world’s only Smart Connected Worker Suite

The Augmentir™ founding team has been at the forefront of three of the most important of these software technology revolutions – Wonderware Software in 1987, Lighthammer in 1997, and ThingWorx in 2008.

In 2017, the founders of Augmentir recognized that the technology and market forces were aligned yet again, for a fourth industrial software revolution. A revolution focused on increasing the productivity & quality of processes involving front-line workers.

Wonderware Transforms How Machines Run

In 1987, Wonderware transformed how machines run, with the introduction and mass commercialization of Human-Machine Interface software. Wonderware enabled the first software-based industrial revolution and is still in evidence today by Wonderware’s continued leadership position.

Lighthammer Revolutionizes the Factory Floor

In 1997, Lighthammer transformed manufacturing yet again with the introduction of the first Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence platform. Lighthammer revolutionized the factory floor by bringing both real time intelligence and live synchronization with the ERP software layer. This enabled the second software-based industrial revolution and is still evidenced today by the ubiquity of this software (currently under the SAP MII brand).

ThingWorx Catalyzes the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

In 2008, ThingWorx catalyzed the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with the introduction of the first application platform for IIoT. ThingWorx transformed both manufacturing and service, becoming synonymous with Industries 4.0/Brilliant factory, and Connected Service. This enabled the 3rd software-based industrial revolution and is still evidenced today by the ubiquity of IIoT software and the market leadership of PTC’s ThingWorx brand.
