The next time you’re treating yourself to a sugar-filled, semi-frozen beverage from your nearest corner store, there’s a good chance a Calgary-based company helped make it happen.Matt Heffernan, CEO of Zedi Inc., said the company got its start more than 30 years ago making probes and sensors for oil and gas wells.
Initially they made probes that could be lowered down a well to send back information, but over the decades they expanded into automation, and even artificial intelligence.
Zedi is proud to support the local communities in which we operate and are pleased to share this exciting example of connecting our technology with local partners. Students at NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) created a tool to "gather data on emerging technology in wireless internet connectivity" and utilized Zedi's technology to bring their project idea into reality.A student group in the Technology Management program, "built a prototype and tied that into Zedi’s existing secure cloud infrastructure technology Zedi Access, which was provided to the students." The Capstone projects completed by NAIT students act as a learning experience that also enhances the students' career and networking opportunities, while building partnerships in the community.
HOUSTON, TX – (March 12, 2018) Zedi is pleased to announce the launch of Zedi Tank Monitoring, an easy-to-use solution to easily monitor your tanks from anywhere with simple, easy to read data.
