DPR Group Created Increased Brand Awareness for Linortek’s Launch of its IoTMeter™ Wireless Equipment Hour Meter

Overview

Linor Technology, Inc. (Linortek) is a research and development company that designs and builds controllers for the “Internet of Things” (IoT), a market that involves web connection between all types of products. Linortek developed two lines of web controllers used in three niche products, NetBell, Network Hour Meter and Aquaculture Farm Monitor. This technology focus and expertise has enabled Linortek to take full advantage of the new generation of IoT for industrial, manufacturing and educational businesses as well as the Aquaculture vertical business with needs for control, monitoring and alert over the internet. All products are controlled and monitored from a simple and easy to use web page or mobile application.

The Challenge

As a small manufacturer of specialized controllers for the IoT, Linortek needed to start building more brand awareness about its products and services.  Some of their main objectives are as follows:

  • Build brand awareness for Linortek as a company that designs and builds controllers and other innovative products for the Internet of Things (IoTs).
  • Generate a steady stream of positive news about Linortek and its products in key trade and technology publications. 
  • Position Linortek executives as thought leaders in the field of design and development of products for the Internet of Things.
  • Secure positive publicity for the May 2019 launch of Linortek’s IoTMeter™, a Wireless Equipment Hour meter.

The Solution

Linortek signed DPR Group to help plan and execute the successful launch of its IoTMeter and to secure additional publicity for other products such as the Netbell® NTG TCP/IP All-in-One Speaker.  In addition, DPR Group was tasked with helping promote Linortek’s working relationship with various reseller partners.

 Results

As part of its focused digital public relations campaign for Linortek, DPR Group helped generate positive publicity for the launch of Linortek’s IoTMeter.  The IoTMeter is a wireless equipment runtime monitor and alert system. The device remotely collects real-time data on offline industrial vehicles and powered equipment, enabling companies to stay on top of routine maintenance to minimize equipment downtime and lost revenue. 

As part of this launch, DPR Group secured positive publicity for the IoTMeter in a variety of industry and trade publications such as:
