Novus International has been awarded the first-ever Information Technology Innovation Award for a customer inventory management system integrating satellite communications and remote monitoring technology.

In 2009-2010, Novus upgraded its existing Automated Information Monitoring System infrastructure by incorporating the latest satellite communications and remote monitoring technology throughout its bulk liquid product supply chain. The new platform is Internet-based and provides precise, dependable and instantaneous inventory readings for any customer 24/7, according to Novus. It has been implemented at over 500 locations across North America and is designed to be expanded globally in the future. “Our AIMS system has improved the reliability of our entire supply chain operation and upgraded the telemetry system to a sustainable technology platform,” said Thad Simons, Novus CEO.
