Industrial operations are often intensive users of their


cranes, making rope inspection a critical factor for safety.


And because Rope IQ is a web-based solution,


indicated Gillespie, it is updated on a regular basis with enhancements. “Data is secured in one of the most secure data centers in the world, and is surrounded by multiple layers of security infrastructure. We take security very seriously, and invest significant amounts of time into improving it.” Additionally, within the Internet of Tings (IoT) era,


Gillespie is in discussions with how the Rope IQ database could link with MRT (Magnetic Resonance Testing) equipment. He also envisions a future where it could be linked to intelligent cameras for remote monitoring or ropes, as well as sophisticated crane systems that are now on the market. And while usability is key, Gillespie is confident that companies will have little trouble implementing Rope IQ into their operations—especially if recent evidence is any indication. “A recent implementation at one of the leading drinks


manufacturer’s automated warehouse illustrates the simplicity of learning the system,” he said. “We scheduled an hour-long phone call a week after signup to go through any issues and answer questions. Te call lasted five

minutes, with only one question. Ultimately, we want to transform technology around wire rope and therefore seek to expand our offering to utilize the latest technologies. Tis includes IoT and artificial intelligence.” As for any competition, and/or what distinguishes


Rope IQ from its competition, Gillespie pointed out that it’s pretty simple. “We believe that Rope IQ is unique in providing a complete rope-management and inspection system to the market place. If companies want a solution to completely manage their crane rope operation, we believe we’re the only company operating in this space.” To that end, he also confirmed that he’s very excited about the future of the industry, and even more so, Rope IQ’s role in evolving it. “I’m excited to be part of this venture because we believe Rope IQ can make a difference in improving safety initiatives in the dangerous world of lifting while also demonstrating that technology can be applied to any industry to innovate with the latest technological advances. We think the industry is ripe for change, and want to play a big part in that change!” y
