What are people saying about Red Lion Crimson?

"One of the many challenges faced by end users, OEMs and system integrators is to find software tools that enable communications between hundreds of disparate devices and protocols in both a cost effective and time effective manner. These software tools must be intuitive enough to enable disparate device and protocol communications via simple configuration programs that do not require programming or training. Red Lion's Crimson 3.0 software appears to fulfill these market requirements that in turn provides the business benefits of quicker project deployment, better asset utilization and a greater number of devices actively communicating, all of which results in increased productivity and profitability for manufacturers and integrators alike."

Craig Resnick, Vice President
ARC Advisory Group

“Connecting systems and sharing information enables companies to optimize productivity and streamline processes, but in order to do that the devices need to be able to communicate. By offering support for over 300 industrial protocols that vary from proprietary to open-source, we give our customers the industry’s widest range of choices to seamlessly extend connectivity across the factory floor to remote locations without requiring new equipment investments.”
