Original Press Release:
BioHiTech Global Launches BioHiTech Alto(TM), a Next Generation Industrial Machinery Communication Technology
Alto's proprietary natural language messaging and chatbot tool increases the productivity of industrial equipment through intelligent real-time communication
CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. ("BioHiTech" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BHTG), a green technology company that develops and deploys innovative and disruptive waste management technologies, announces the launch of its BioHiTech Alto™, a next generation interactive industrial communication technology that enables users to communicate intelligently with industrial equipment in real-time.
BioHiTech Alto is a key new component of BioHiTech's comprehensive food waste solution that uses data and analytics to help drive smarter business decisions. The Alto software is designed to enhance the productivity of the Company's Eco-Safe Digester® by enabling easy to understand, real-time interactive communication to improve unit performance levels, processing statistics, and maintenance routines via a secured internet connection on any standard computer or mobile device. In addition to enhancing the productivity of its own equipment, the platform can easily be expanded to provide a whole new way for people to intelligently communicate actionable information with any internet-enabled industrial equipment in order to achieve significant performance optimization.
"We are pleased to introduce this exciting new technology that we believe will jumpstart the adoption of Internet-enabled industrial equipment; not only for our own products, but for any piece of industrial machinery," said Bill Kratzer, Chief Technology Officer of BioHiTech Global. "Alto uses messaging and chatbot technology to reduce the friction that is typically associated with industrial equipment monitoring, management, and control. Through this technology, we believe that we can not only make our machines smarter, but also help make our customers smarter by empowering them with better and smarter interactions that deliver more meaningful insights."
BioHiTech Alto is now available to all BioHiTech customers through its BioHiTech Cloud™, the Company's powerful waste analytics platform, and currently supports both text and chat communication. BioHiTech's on-site Eco-Safe Digester, which diverts food waste from landfills, is already a smart, internet-connected machine equipped with an on-board scale that weighs food waste each time it is added, determining where, when, and what food waste is being disposed. Combining BioHiTech Alto's chatbot technology with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies will provide new ways to intelligently manage the Digesters to help customers make informed decisions about their waste streams in order to optimize their operations. The Company's future plans for Alto include integration with BioHiTech Cirrus™; the Company's recently introduced mobile analytics app, as well as Slack, a popular real-time messaging and collaboration platform.
"We are always striving to provide our customers more impactful ways to make the waste data generated by our machinery more useful and actionable. BioHiTech Alto is yet another tool for customers to get the insight they need to better manage and reduce their waste output," said Frank E. Celli, CEO of BioHiTech Global. "We also believe Alto has the potential to create a significant, additional revenue stream for the Company outside of our own core business by revolutionizing the way any internet-enabled industrial equipment communicates with end users to increase productivity. We look forward to the rollout of Alto with our current customer base and to the future opportunities that may arise from the development of this important new technology."
