Alteia, a leading enterprise artificial intelligence (AI) software provider and RDO Equipment Co. announce a wide-range alliance and the rollout of RDOai, a data management platform to further serve RDO customers and offer them a tool to store, process, and analyze their survey and machine data. The partnership is designed to jointly expand enterprise-class AI solutions across the construction, mining, aggregates, energy, and civil engineering markets.
The agreement between the two companies contributes to enhance RDO’s portfolio software solutions. Specifically, RDOai enables the visualization and the computation of images and point clouds, the processing of AI driven applications in order to increase the performance and safety on the worksite, while reducing associated costs.
RDO plans to market, license, and deploy RDOai to RDO customers and to explore new markets. RDO and Alteia expect to leverage both companies’ existing digital portfolios to collaborate on new integrated enterprise AI applications that can support specific industry needs. The initial focus will be on deploying productivity management solutions for the mining and aggregates industries, and monitoring tools for the construction and civil engineering markets. The partnership is structured to allow exploration into other verticals and is designed to supplement RDO’s existing technologies in advanced analytics and embedded intelligence, notably for machine data analysis.
This agreement is strategic for both parties as it opens up a new vision and market for heavy equipment dealers. “This is a monumental step in our joint efforts to not only deliver the best heavy equipment available on the market, but close the loop with our customers and offer the best software solutions to enable their digital transformation, which was a long-time request,” Adam Gilbertson, RDO Vice President said.“Enterprise customers, especially in the construction and mining sectors, increasingly need to implement enterprise AI applications in less time to scale and with less risk,” Michael Delagarde, CEO at Alteia said. “We believe alliances like Alteia’s and RDO’s show the potential path for a scalable platform that end users can deploy easily to link new and existing applications.”
