Gasworld — December 19, 2022:
It’s been quite a year for New Jersey-based Anova. A new CEO, new products, and a number of awards and recognitions have all led to a very successful 2022. As the industry continues to battle shortages, whether its staff or product, remote tank telemetry solutions are arguably now more important than ever.
For Anova, it hopes to continue its 35-year legacy as a specialist in the market and continue working with key players on a variety of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) projects and innovations. That said, with a new year, comes new trends and demands, meaning that adaptation will be vital for customer delivery.
Here, in the latest instalment of gasworld’s 12 Day of Content series, we dive into exactly what 2023 may bring, as well as revisiting some of the most exciting growth drivers for remote tank telemetry solutions this year, as we speak to Gregg Berres, Chief Revenue Officer at Anova.
