Crestron has accepted the prestigious 2018 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year Award for Internet of Things (IoT) in a ceremony at the Microsoft Inspire event in Las Vegas. Microsoft recognized Crestron for providing outstanding solutions in IoT in the form of Crestron XiO Cloud, a revolutionary IoT-based provisioning and management solution built on the Microsoft Azure platform.
Crestron IoT powered the digital transformation by enabling automation and control solutions enable facility management and IT staff to control entire environments with a push of a button or click of a mouse, integrating audio, video, digital signage, scheduling, lighting, building management systems (BMS), HVAC and security systems. The strength of Crestron IoT-enabled devices and systems is their integration in the Crestron XiO Cloud, providing all-in-one monitoring, management and control from a single platform.
“Intelligent workplace solutions are the springboard for digital transformation- but managing the devices that enable it can be costly and complicated. Crestron XiO Cloud reduces the complexities associated with deploying, tracking, managing and evolving the ecosystem of IoT enabled devices that make communication and collaboration seamless. Crestron is honored to be recognized by Microsoft for developing game-changing connected technologies that help propel digital transformation at Fortune 500 companies worldwide,” said Ted Colton, Vice President of Unified Communication Strategies at Crestron.
