This week we’re reflecting on all that 2017 has brought us before we ring in the New Year. We’ve traveled, we’ve grown, and we’ve brought on some new and exciting partners. It’s been a great year for FIN 4.0 and the J2 Innovations team!
Where In The World Is Gerard
Gerard Huff, our Director of Technical Services, has been all over the world hosting FIN training for our FIN Authorized Distributors and OEM partners. Check out the pictures in our FIN Training Facebook Album.
He has done such a great job that he has been nominated for the Control Trends Trainer of the Year Award!
New OEM Partners
This year we brought on some of the industry’s best and brightest as OEM partners.
In June we welcomed IoTwarz in conjunction with Hepta Controls. They are using the FIN framework for their EntroCIM data center infrastructure management software.
In July we welcomed a new BACnet OEM partner, ECS Group. They are the parent company of Open General.
In September we welcomed ASI Controls, who is leveraging the FIN framework for IntelliFront, their new browser based Complete BAS.
Other Fun Highlights
In January we announced our participation in Wells Fargo's Innovation Incubator (IN2) program. We’ve been working with engineers and scientists from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to use FIN and tagging and data modeling to reduce the labor and complexity required to deploy future smart energy-efficient buildings.
In July, we released the newest FIN 4.0 feature, Automated Commissioning and in August we presented it at the NREL IN2 Summit.
We also spent some quality time this year with longtime FIN Authorized Distributor, Cochrane Supply. First, at Controls-Con where we celebrated the company’s 50 year anniversary. And then, a Take FIN for a Spin 5 City Tour.
Overall it was a great year! We can’t wait to tell you what’s in store for FIN in 2018.
