CRN’s 2020 IoT Innovators Awards

Dylan Martin

CRN honors top solution providers leading the charge in bringing unique and innovative Internet of Things solutions to enterprises, SMBs and government agencies.

Wachter

Top Executive: Brian Sloan, CEO

Watchter is using its IT and operational technology expertise to provide IoT solutions geared toward keeping workers and customers safe amid the pandemic.

The Lenexa, Kan.-based solution provider has developed four solutions focused around scanning body temperature; monitoring social distancing and contact tracing; touchless meetings; and sanitation.

With ContactWatch, for instance, the company has partnered with AiRISTA Flow to provide a small Bluetooth- and Wi-Fi-enabled tag that employees wear. The tag then makes a sound or flashes lights if two people come within six feet of each other, and the location and time of the interaction is recorded in a back-end system so that the employer can monitor “hotspots.”
