GKM Consultants and Ackcio are Proud to Announce Their Distribution Partnership
Singapore, 22 April 2021 – GKM Consultants, based in Canada, and Ackcio, based in Singapore, are pleased to announce a strategic partnership for expanding our presence in underground mining projects in North America.
GKM Consultants provide a range of geotechnical services that includes instrument installation, data hosting and monitoring that offer functionalities such as alarm handling and remote data visualization. Given their strong presence in the North American market, we are excited to partner with GKM Consultants to further our mission of providing our Ackcio Beam wireless data acquisition technology to underground mining projects.
At its core, Ackcio Beam products run our patented, long-range, wireless Ackcio Mesh data collection protocol, that allows for reliable sensor data monitoring in underground mining projects with unparalleled accuracy and reliability. With our partnership with GKM Consultants, we will accelerate the adoption of our technology across various mining projects in the North American region.
“A mesh network is the natural choice for the dynamic underground mining environment. The ability to relay data in a series of hops to bring valuable data to the outside world is paramount. Ackcio Beam is a robust system that can tolerate the loss of connectivity of one or more devices without systematic loss of performance and lasts for years on batteries. This innovative product allows us to complement our range of solutions for underground mining operations,” said Adam Dulmage, Mining Director, GKM Consultants.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with GKM Consultants,” said Nimantha Baranasuriya, Co-founder & CEO of Ackcio, “GKM has a track record in the North American market for providing best of breed solutions. Their desire to partner with us is a true statement of intent, from a leading consulting company.”
For our clients, the result of this partnership is a reduction in infrastructure cost, improved asset utilization, higher operational efficiency, and increased safety. “GKM and Ackcio are committed to providing a safer future with an intelligent real-time monitoring solution that provides precise and reliable data. We are honoured to be their exclusive partner for underground operations,” outlined Melanie Boudreau, Director, Strategy at GKM Consultants.
Ackcio builds reliable wireless data acquisition systems for industrial monitoring applications. The company automates monitoring processes and provides remote, intelligent data to enable increased safety and efficient risk management in mission-critical industries, including construction, infrastructure, mining, and rail.
