Summit Media Group's Automation World, the leading business magazine serving automation professionals, named Kepware Technologies as a First Team category leader in the 2013 Leadership in Automation Program.


Each year, the community-based program invites automation professionals to vote for their favorite automation vendors in unaided recall surveys. Nearly four dozen categories are featured, representing the wide variety of automation technologies, software, and products in use by today's manufacturing professionals across the discrete, batch and continuous process manufacturing industries.

Kepware was awarded a place on the 2013 First Team in the Information Management category. The award affirms Kepware's dedication to providing innovative, customer-focused software solutions to the industry. "Chosen by their customers, the First Team Honorees offer outstanding examples of innovation and service. Congratulations to them, and thank you to all the end-users who lent their voice to this program throughout the year," said Jim Chrzan, publisher of Automation World.
