DataRealm Expands With Office in Kitchener

(Windsor, ON - November 15, 2009) Manufacturing Business Intelligence (MBI) firm DataRealm (, in response to a growing client base, has completed the first step in its planned North American expansion. A company representative will now be based in Kitchener, ON.

Jeff Allen will represent the company in Southern Ontario working out of a Kitchener office and will support the company's sales and marketing team as it expands the DataRealm client base in the area around Toronto.

DataRealm provides manufacturing IT systems integration, controls engineering and related application programming services to companies active in automotive and heavy equipment manufacturing. It is quickly gaining a presence in other production sectors including food and beverage, durable goods and life sciences.

"Most new clients are interested in our abilities in Manufacturing Business Intelligence. We have strategically developed a position of strength in the creation of information exchange on the plant floor in which a variety of once independent controllers and electronic devices are able to communicate with each other and can be linked to a company’s enterprise software. With this linkage, the information gathered from these devices can be used for engineering, maintenance, planning and continuous improvement," explains Dave Fortin, founder and President of DataRealm.

He adds that "increasingly manufacturers are seeking companies that can eliminate the borders that have limited information to flow freely throughout the plant floor for such uses as marquee systems. This also includes providing up-to-the minute information on plant operations."

Mr. Allen, a graduate of the University of Waterloo, brings considerable experience to the firm. He is certified as an Applied Science Technologist by the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists and over the past decade has developed considerable proficiency in database and manufacturing production software.
