Xyte’s CDMP is a suite of cloud-based tools that allows equipment and device manufacturers across different industries to cloudify, service, support, and commercialize their connected devices—all in one place. By bridging the gap between devices and the cloud, Xyte’s platform enables manufacturers and their channel partners to leverage the as-a-Service business model and develop sustainable customer relationships.

Xyte is committed to supporting manufacturers in enhancing their offerings and improving the customer experience. With the addition of Connect+, available to all Xyte customers, vendors on the platform can offer their products alongside a steadily growing selection of cloud service providers. By creating bundles of physical products, digital products, and subscriptions, manufacturers and service providers can boost their sales opportunities and expand their reach to a broader audience. 

“Nowadays, products of all types require cloud technologies that allow easy access to purchasing options, flexibility to scale, and a complete monitoring system to improve management and create experiences that connect with customers’ needs.” said Omer Brookstein, Xyte’s CEO. “Connect+ is a core element that aligns with the fundamental goal of our CDMP—to provide an all-in-one platform enabling manufacturers, channel partners, and end users to increase their business success in a continuously shifting market, in a mutually beneficial manner.”
