Thousands of cryogenics research projects around the world will soon be using Kiwi technology now that New Zealand's Jade Software has signed MMR Technologies as a partner.
Jade managing director Craig Richardson said the inhouse team at cryogenics firm MMR would use Jade Software to create a bespoke control solution.
The deal came about after a free trial of its software, he said.
“Jade was selected based on a number of factors including high performance, reliability and ease of development."
MMR electronics engineer Matt Buckby said Jade's software would be used in laboratories, research institutes and universities’ materials research departments.
“Our team chose Jade over several other suppliers. A key factor in the decision was that with Jade programmes do not need to be recoded from the ground up as they would in other development environments.
He said he had both taught and studied Jade, as well as several other programming languages, and had always found its capabilities "very robust".
Richardson said MMR, which originated from research conducted at Stanford University, was a world leader in its field of cryogenics research and development.
The partnership would see Jade software being used "in the most demanding of environments".
The US market is one of increasing importance for Jade, according to Richardson.
“This is an important recognition of our technology in a significant market. Silicon Valley is where it all started for the technology sector."
The company recently showcased at Microsoft Tech Ed Atlanta, where another of its products, JOOB Mobile, was named one of three finalists in the mobile/wireless category. It builds data management technology used in a variety of industries, from logistics to financial services.
It recently established an office in San Francisco and was one of the first companies to sign up for the Kiwi Landing Pad, which recently opened in the California tech hub.
Jade Software also has offices in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
