HOW WE WORK

MOBILE HAS A KEY ROLE

Internet of Things and Industrial Internet solutions typically consist of wireless sensors, cloud service and the UX. Your every customer and every employee probably has a smartphone and mobile is already the primary UX device for everything in the Internet. It is always with us, has a lot of processing power, can sense the environment and is aggressively priced due to high volumes. Therefore, in addition to being the primary UI mobile becomes quickly a very useful Internet gateway for sensor data, which creates completely new opportunities.

FAIL FAST

Open source, power of cheap & fail fast mentality drive the innovation in the Internet of Things. We don’t reinvent the wheel but leverage Open Source and the fact that there is a huge number of Internet of Things apps developed all the time worldwide driving the cost of deployment down all the time. This also allows failing fast, failing cheap and failing often to create the winning concepts. We think that from our first meeting, there should be first tangible results even in weeks! And in months you shall be able to decide whether continue or start massively deploying the solution. This is what we mean by agility.

NEW DATA → NEW BUSINESS MODELS

You should not limit IoT activity to finetuning your operational cost. We can help you to innovate new kind of business models. This requires obviously combination of understanding the business and technology and optimally based on great co-operation between you and us. This probably also requires analysis of the raw data to get something out that benefits real business for you and your customers that can be existing customers or completely new ones.


LET US TURN IT INTO PROFITS

PRODUCTIVITY APPLICATIONS

Optimization of site visits

If your process includes e.g. a lot of site visits to maintain or update physical assets or to deliver stuff, you would probably benefit from apps that would streamline your operations. That can include just route planning but also e.g. monitoring to optimize the time and fuel used for the visits as well as support for the actions at the site.

Asset tracking

If you have a significant amount of assets (e.g. containers, vehicles, machines or tools), you can track their ID and location to know where they are and where they were earlier.

Operational processes health monitoring

By tracking your operational processes and products you can increase your process efficiency and potentially produce completely new kind of data for your existing or new customers with a completely new business model. You can track your machines, vehicles, tools, shipments, shipped products, office use etc. The sky is the limit but let us remember to first define clear business objectives.

CUSTOMER APPLICATIONS

Your best customers are a good starting point to try how they could be even happier and to buy even more based on really personal service that makes their life easier and matches their own preferences and interests. A simple example is smart signage, i.e. how give them easily more information on the product or any assets based on proximity of the item. This you can extend further by matching the customer profile with the real-world context to help them easier to find products they really want and to purchase them easily. Today mobile allows you quite cost efficiently to even offer your customers games to better engage them with your brand. Or you can just offer them a better e-commerce experience with mobile users as the primary target.
