ICONICS Announces New KPIWorX™ for Smart Watches With Support for the Apple Watch and Samsung Gear

ICONICS is a global automation software provider and six-time winner of the Microsoft Partner of the Year award, providing advanced web-enabled OPC UA and BACnet certified visualization, analytics, and mobile software solutions for any energy, manufacturing, industrial or building automation application. ICONICS, a worldwide leader in automation software human-machine interface (HMI) development, has announced a new smart watch interface as an extension of its KPIWorX™ app.


ICONICS KPIWorX, a mobile app available from both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, now supports smart watches, starting with the Apple Watch platform (Apple Watch Series 2 and newer). KPIWorX’ self-service dashboard technology, introduced by ICONICS, now incudes support for delivering custom visualization and KPIs on popular watch platforms. It allows you to connect to real-time information provided via OPC UA, BACnet, Modbus and other popular communication technology standards, as well as to business intelligence data from databases and other analytics tools. It is now possible to integrate smart watch technology with GPS and beacon location services; capabilities that enable a contextualized, “location-aware” smart watch user experience.

- It is now possible to have up-to-date information on your Apple Watch or Samsung Gear, which includes production, sales, and energy metrics literally at your fingertips, said Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS.

- It is a completely immersive mobile experience.

ICONICS’ new smart watch connectivity is an extension of its powerful, easily configurable KPIWorX self-service dashboard, which delivers real-time visualization and analysis via a free, web-based, mobile thin client. Widgets available for the watch interface will include informative labels, as well as multiple chart options, including line, bar, column, donut, pie, and trend charts. Each widget will provide its own level of interactivity (cursors, summaries, etc.) on the watch itself.

KPIWorX’ integration with smart watches will commence with Apple Watch Series 2 and later models. ICONICS also plans to release a version for Android smart watches (e.g., Samsung Gear S3) following this initial launch.

At SPS IPC Drives 2018, ICONICS will also demonstrate how smart watches can interact with manufacturing and business data. Stop by our booth (Hall 5, Stand 160) for a personalized demonstration.

It’s About “Time”

At Bentley Systems, we have been talking to our users, especially owners, and it has become clear that despite our collective best efforts, there is a gap in the market.  Owners need easy access to real-time, accurate, engineering information and they need tools that make it simple to keep engineering data up-to-date, especially those engaged in brownfield and revamp projects.  It takes too much time and effort to gather and verify the information they need to make decisions effectively. And for older plants that do not have 3D models, there is simply no visual way to verify and check information easily.
