C3D joins Arduino Pro’s System Integrators Partnership Program

Arduino TeamDecember 21st, 2023

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with Chilean engineering services firm C3D, joining our System Integrators Program at the Gold level. The collaboration will focus on enhancing the company’s IoT and automation capabilities by leveraging the entire Arduino Pro product line to accelerate the product development of connected applications in key verticals. 

“Through exploration, design, prototyping and manufacturing, we strive to solve every challenge that may prevent our clients from turning their product into a reality,” states Juan Pablo Oyarzún Alcayaga, CEO of C3D. “By combining Arduino Pro industrial-grade modular products and our expertise, we can now offer accelerated development and lower non-recurring engineering fees at the same time.”

According to a Gartner report published in June, “Spend on the Internet of Things (IoT) across key industries reached over $268 billion in 2022, and IoT devices are forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% from 2021 through 2025.” The significant global growth experienced by the IoT market has been driven by increased connectivity and the integration of smart devices across various industries – including healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, smart homes and smart cities. On top of this, 2023 has been the year of artificial intelligence, leading to unprecedented advancements in automation: the integration of AI into IoT systems currently allows for intelligent decision-making and process automation at an entirely new level. Businesses that incorporate AI-driven automation into their workflows can enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve overall performance – and C3D offers a variety of services to achieve all of this and more.

The firm is particularly interested in the potential impact that the emergence of Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology will have on the market, as it gains traction as a specialized communication standard designed for the IoT. Offering low power consumption, extended coverage, and support for a massive number of devices, it stands out as the ideal solution for applications in agriculture, utilities, asset tracking, and mining. 

“We are excited C3D is our first system integrator partner in Chile,” comments Paul Kaeley, Strategic Sales Advisor to Arduino. “Their strategic insights and expertise, in the context of machine design and manufacturing increasingly moving to South America, create amazing opportunities to potentially set a new standard, and drive customer value in this market.”

The System Integrators Partnership Program by Arduino Pro is an exclusive initiative designed for professionals seeking to implement Arduino technologies in their projects. This program opens up a world of opportunities based on the robust Arduino ecosystem, allowing partners to unlock their full potential in collaboration with us.
