ValuD: The year 2016 in review

As we close out 2016, it’s exciting to look back and see the tremendous growth we’ve had this past year. From launching MobilD, the latest in IBM TRIRIGA mobility, to expanding our offerings with Maximo and the Internet of Things, we have strengthened our presence across the industry. Each milestone has been a part of ValuD’s long-term vision to expand our offerings beyond IBM TRIRIGA as we continue our journey to become the premier IBM partner offering IWMS, EAM and IoT solutions…

As we enter into 2017, we share our highlights from the past year:

The investment in Motors@Work: We began the year by venturing into the Internet of Things (IoT) – one of the hottest areas in the industry today. ValuD invested in Motors@Work LLC, a pioneer in motor and pump-driven system energy optimization and has provided product development, marketing and sales services.  Motors@Work™ is a multi-tenant, SaaS solution that leverages Department of Energy best practices and patent-pending technology to optimize motors and pumps performance and helps customers save up to 30% in energy costs.  With our December release, we have greatly increased the capabilities of the solution, including pre-built integrations with Maximo and the IBM Bluemix / Watson IoT platform…

We launched MobilD (Mobility Delivered), which was designed exclusively for IBM TRIRIGA. Developed by our in-house engineers at ValuD, MobilD bridges the gap between field work and desktop use with features like Self-Service Requests, Approvals and Work Order Management. We have already successfully deployed our mobility solution and welcome the opportunity to set up demos for you or your clients…

The growth of our educational offerings: ValuD has had an exceptional year with our educational initiatives with clients taking advantage of our training breadth. Some notable training clients include Pfizer, Johns Hopkins University-Applied Physics Lab, Flextronics, and Microsoft. Our new Lease Accounting course is in high demand. The two-day course is geared towards Lease Administrators and Lease Accountants who want to better understand and use the system given the new FASB standards. ValuD is looking forward to continuing its reputation in 2017 as the IBM TRIRIGA Training Academy with exciting new offerings on the horizon…
