Insight Earns CRN IoT Innovators Award for Connected Platform Solution’ 

Insight’s proprietary Internet of Things platform unifies smart devices for day-to-day business management, with flexibility to adapt to changing needs, like virus detection and prevention 

TEMPE, Ariz., January 6, 2021 – Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Insight as one of its 2020 IoT Innovators Award winners.

The CRN IoT Innovators Award recipients, 25 in all, stand at the forefront of the industry in developing unique Internet of Things solutions that drive go-to-market strategies and ensure maximum time to value from their customers’ IoT investments.

Insight earned its place on the list for the development of a uniquely flexible, scalable IoT solution called Insight Connected Platform™. This simple, business-ready application provides a singular view of data from connected devices across an organization, with use cases spanning healthcare, manufacturing, restaurants, retail and more. To help address challenges related to public health, in the past year Insight expanded the solution with the Connected Platform for Detection and Prevention, featuring new capabilities to enhance the detection of elevated body temperatures in group settings, promotion of social distancing and secure digital contact tracing.

“When states began shutting down in response to COVID-19 earlier this year, it put getting back to work sensibly and safely at the top of everyone’s mind,” said Stan Lequin, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Innovation, Insight. “Businesses since then have sought access to solutions like Insight’s Connected Platform to enable this return. The platform makes it easier for users to control, monitor, manage and make decisions based on all of the data they collect, not just from thermal cameras but any connected device providing information about how a business is performing.”

By unifying data from a variety of devices, cameras and sensors, Connected Platform delivers real-time insights to help users detect symptoms and prevent the spread of disease, including the following detection and prevention options:

  • The Daily Q, an Insight-developed mobile app, allows workers to complete a health assessment before heading into the workplace each day. If a possible health concern is identified based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, the app helps direct workers to take appropriate action by staying home or contacting HR to reduce unnecessary risks to the workplace.

  • As part of Insight’s stand-alone Thermal Monitoring Essentials solution, thermal cameras and non-contact kiosks at entryways quickly screen for elevated body temperatures among individuals, or in groups as large as 40 people at a time, discreetly notifying authorized users if an elevated temperature is detected.

  • Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) wearables and a smart notification system leverage anonymized data to protect individual privacy while supporting social distancing and secure contact tracing efforts.

CRN’s fourth annual IoT Innovators Award recognizes solution providers and systems integrators across North America who operate on the vanguard of IoT innovation and development. The companies on this list realize the vast potential of IoT and integrate pioneering solutions into their everyday operations.

“CRN’s 2020 IoT Innovators Award winners have distinguished themselves as pacesetters in driving industry-leading solutions for a diverse range of IoT challenges,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “These award recipients represent an elite group of industry pioneers that have delivered state-of-the-art solutions to their customers’ most pressing challenges, helping their customers outperform the competition and establish themselves as the top brands in their respective markets.”
