MERX Global, | June 23, 2022
MERX Global, a Chicago based transportation company that provides comprehensive transportation solutions to customers throughout the United States, and E-SMART, a leading ADAS/ISA provider, announced today a new partnership to bring E-SMART technology to MERX Global's fleet of more than 250 trucks. E-SMART's active, real time speed control decreases speeding events by more than 90%.
"Safety has been our number one priority from day one of operation. Utilizing the latest technology that helps our drivers and motorists be safe on the road is key. When we implemented E-SMART, we saw an immediate reduction in the number of speeding events. Less speeding events meant safer drivers, less accidents and better safety scores for the company."
-Pavel Peneff, Vice-President at MERX Global.
E-SMART uses advanced positioning technology to determine vehicle location to actively manage its maximum allowed speed. E-SMART also leverages this technology for low bridge collision avoidance, active geofencing and remote vehicle immobilization. Leading fleets currently using the E-SMART technology report a significant decrease in speed-related accidents, infringements, and a significantly improved CSA scores.
"MERX Global was an early adoptor of E-SMART technology and is now deploying the technology to the full fleet. Initially, Volvo introduced the tech to the Peneff brothers who got very involved in the evaluation of the technology and its efficient deployment. This is a great partnership.''
-Mathieu Boivin, CEO at E-SMART.
Headquartered in Elk Grove Village, IL, Merx Global is a growing asset-based transportation company that provides comprehensive transportation solutions to customers throughout the United States. Our services include full truckload, hazmat, and drop trailer with a dedicated private fleet.

Vertex Software | July 16, 2022
Vertex Software, Inc., a pioneer in 3D manufacturing visualization and cloud collaboration technology, announces that they have been selected as a supplier to Deere & Company, a leading global manufacturer of agricultural, forestry, and other heavy equipment and an Industry 4.0 innovator.
John Deere employees will use Vertex to access the state of the factory, service needs for equipment, forecast planning, and gather information about how equipment functions in real time. They can access the content on any computing device in seconds, including tablets, laptops, and smartphonesBy pushing 3D information data beyond the engineering department, Vertex's purpose-built software will support John Deere's Industry 4.0 initiatives, including Smart Connected Factory programs, by delivering real-time, actionable 3D data across manufacturing and business operations.
The Vertex 3D Platform dramatically reduces the time, cost, and effort needed to use 3D visualizations across the manufacturing value chain. The platform will help John Deere build and deploy fit-for-purpose apps that deliver decision-making systems with rich, interactive 3D content.
The sheer size and sensitive nature of CAD data, the cost of 3D hardware and software, and the number of data formats and software systems have made it nearly impossible to use 3D product data beyond engineering.
Now, Vertex makes it possible to engage customers, employees, suppliers, and partners with 3D data wherever they are on whatever devices they use. Vertex extends the reach of 3D data to reduce supply chain bottlenecks, accelerate time-to-market, and increase sales by providing easy access to viewable 3D information that enhances productivity and reduces expenses.
"For the first time, manufacturers have a truly effective way to leverage their 3D data assets beyond engineering, We're like Netflix for CAD. You can now reach everyone, everywhere, instantly with 3D."
-Dan Murray, CEO & Founder of Vertex Software
