“The OPC Training Institute is an excellent organization providing a valuable service in OPC technology hands-on training and online resources including independent evaluations of OPC products” said Roy Kok, VP of Sales and Marketing for Kepware Technologies. “Our customers tell us, on a regular basis, that we are one of the easiest and most reliable products that they have ever used. It is exciting to have the same conclusion through the OPC Training Institute and their independent testers.”
“OPC technology is about interoperability among multi-vendor products,” commented Randy Kondor, President of the OPC Training Institute. “Our independent review of Kepware’s KEPServerEX reinforces what our students experience in our hands-on training sessions, and that is, seamless data communication when using OPC. We know Kepware’s products are heavily used in industry and so we weren’t surprised when our independent test lab gave KEPServerEX a “5 Star” rating.”
