Last week, at the Rockwell Automation® PartnerNetwork™ Conference, Horizon Solutions won the inaugural Ecosystem Award for our Business Intelligence in a Box offering. This award honors the achievement of organizations that plan and implement transformative solutions by applying digital and disruptive Rockwell Automation technologies. Several awards were given to distributors, system integrators, and technology partners, culminating with the Ecosystem award presentation.
"Horizon Solutions has served our customers as a valued Authorized Distributor for almost 100 years,” said Andrew Hastert, Director of North America Distributor Partnerships at Rockwell Automation. “The collective team at Horizon Solutions has earned this win! Their focus on customer value, innovation, and execution continues to drive great results in software and services. Thank you to Horizon Solutions for raising the bar.”

The Horizon Solutions automation team, led by Marcia Pohl, Eric Haff, Jim Bischoff, and Joe Amorese, developed the Business Intelligence in a Box offering, bundling software and hardware to jumpstart data collection, intelligence gathering, and reporting. The bundle combines Rockwell Automation, Ocean Data Systems, and Stratus® technologies to provide a scalable, configurable, and affordable entry-level solution for our customers.
Business Intelligence in a Box allows us to approach customers and get them excited about smart manufacturing. The scalability of the solution coupled with the reporting capabilities showcases the potential of an enterprise solution to their stakeholders.
Recently, this Ecosystem Award-winning solution helped the operations team at a food and beverage industry customer provide real-time analytics and reporting to company management. Now, this customer can quickly configure and deliver production, shift, regulatory compliance, inventory, and operating efficiency reports. This company now plans to purchase a second system for their sister plant.
Many other manufacturers have expressed interest in using Business Intelligence in a Box to jumpstart their smart manufacturing initiative. To learn more about this solution, contact us today!
